Episode 151 of the Fit Father Project Podcast is all about brain health, improving memory, protecting immunity, and fighting dementia.

In this episode, you’ll meet Dr. Marc Milstein, who earned a Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry and a Bachelor of Science in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology from UCLA, has researched cancer biology and neuroscience, and has been published in multiple scientific journals. 

You’ve probably heard a lot lately about fixing gut health to promote longevity, but many people overlook their real superpower: brain health. 

According to Dr. Milstein, our power to improve brain function lies in the brain’s connection with the rest of the body. This means that various lifestyle factors governed by the brain, such as sleep habits and environmental toxins, tend to impact our health more than we realize. 

His book, The Age-Proof Brain, covers each of these topics and offers integrative, science-supported strategies to increase memory, fight off depression, improve mood, ignite energy, and even prevent dementia and non-genetic Alzheimer’s. 

Dr. Milstein’s mission is to educate and empower everybody to take control of their brain health to maximize longevity and reduce the risk of illness. 

It’s a fantastic and informative conversation, and Dr. Milstein makes all this complex stuff easily digestible and understandable so we can all live long, healthy, and happy lives!

In this episode, you’ll learn about:

  • How brain health affects body health.
  • Why embracing getting older can make aging more manageable and less painful.
  • Small lifestyle changes that can have significant impacts.
  • The differences between Alzheimer's and dementia.
  • The causes of common aging issues and what you can do about them.
  • Tips for optimizing nutrition, exercise, sleep, and more.
  • How to train your brain. 
  • And so much more!

So, if you want to get the most from your health and fitness efforts, listen to this episode on brain health, take some notes, and check out FF30X!
