A healthy brain is the key to staying vibrant and alive for a long time, and in Use Your Brain to Change Your Age, bestselling author and brain expert Dr. Daniel G. Amen shares ten simple steps to boost your brain to help you
live longer, look younger, and dramatically decrease your risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

Over the last twenty years at Amen Clinics, Dr. Amen has performed more than 70,000 brain scans on patients from ninety different countries. His brain imaging work has taught
him that our brains typically become less active with age and we become more vulnerable to
memory problems and depression. Yet, one of the most exciting lessons he has learned is that
with a little forethought and a brain-smart plan, you can slow, or even reverse, the aging process in the brain.

Based on the approach that has helped thousands of people at Amen Clinics along with the most cutting-edge research, Dr. Amen’s breakthrough, easy-to-follow antiaging program shows you how to:

• Boost your memory, mood, attention,
and energy
• Decrease your risk for Alzheimer’s and
other forms of dementia
• Eat to live longer
• Reduce the outward signs of aging and
make your skin more beautiful
• Promote the healing of brain damage due
to injury, strokes, substance abuse, and
toxic exposure
• Dramatically increase your chances of
living longer and looking younger
••And much more.

By adopting the brain healthy strategies detailed in Use Your Brain to Change Your Age, you can outsmart your genes, put the brakes on aging, and even reverse the aging process. If you change your brain, you can change your life—and your age.
