Brain Longevity for the prevention of memory disorders
Since 2017, the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation decided to share the valuable knowledge gained over many years of study and research. The Brain Longevity protocol is the result of 25 years of studies in collaboration with the most prestigious American universities and medical schools, as well as 25 years of direct experience with people who are experiencing memory problems, cognitive efficiency or even dementia or Alzheimer’s. The Brain Longevity protocol is composed of in-depth knowledge, lifestyle indications and valuable advice, as well as a protocol of respiratory and meditative practices that have the power to make brain functions more efficient and have been proven effective in preventing Alzheimer’s.
Meditative practices with scientifically proven efficacy
The practices contained in the Brain Longevity protocol, with scientifically proven efficacy on memory and mental clarity, come from Kundalini Yoga taught by Yogi Bhajan. These are complex practices in that they involve hand movements, respirations, repetitions of mantras, but at the same time practicable by anyone. These are meditation exercises that have scientifically proven efficacy even with just 12 minutes a day of practice.
Studies in this sense began in the 90s and since then have brought numerous evidence regarding the effects of these practices on cognitive functions, memory, mental lucidity and executive functions, as well as to counteract depression, the lack of sleep.
