You Can Grow New Brain Cells

Maybe you’re like me and think that once you’re past 20 or so,  your brain cell count quietly subsides and decreases from then on. No new brain cells in adult brains. Well, apparently, not. So that’s really good news  isn’t it.

Some activities appear to help this renewal: getting a good night’s sleep, physical exercise, lifelong learning, sex….

Other things don’t help: getting older, stress, insufficient sleep….

What we eat also helps or hinders. The helpful stuff is highlighted in white below. Although alcohol isn’t helpful, nevertheless resveratrol is helpful. So drink red wine and the helpful resvaratrol will balance out the unhelpful effects of the alcohol.
