The Doctors give you quick tips to keep your brain healthy.
Male Speaker: So exercise is key to good health, it's good for your body, it's good for your brain and we have got some great tips for a little boost in your brain function.
Female Speaker: Eating walnuts; walnuts can actually boost -- help your blood vessel function and it can help in reducing your cholesterol which helps aiding cognitive functions.
Male Speaker: You know a walnut actually looks like a miniature brain, which is cool but. You should also ask your doctor about taking an aspirin a day, because aspirin not only thins your blood, reducing the risk of stroke but it also the anti-inflammatory effect can help you think, speak and react faster.
Male Speaker: I think you are going to like this one, actually surfing the internet for an hour a day can boost your brain power because you are stimulating parts of the brain that control decision making, complex reasoning and your vision.
Male Speaker: And there are a lot of hand held games. So this is the Nintendo DSI XL hand held and this has games that perform or you have performing mental exercises. So, we all took these home last night and then one of them is how to test your brain age? And it was this game for me of rock, paper, scissors, it was late last night and I played it and it said I had the brain of a 7 year old.
Male Speaker: Right yeah, it's tough. I did the same game because sometimes it would ask you to lose or win, so you have to think, oh wait, it's rock I got to do paper to lose, no paper to win.
Male Speaker: It makes the reasoning more complex.
Male Speaker: Complex reasoning yeah makes you - it really taxes your brain.
Male Speaker: This is called the Brain Age 2 that's what we played last night. Lots of other games for a console like this that can get your brain working, crossword puzzles, anything that gets you thinking in the higher functioning levels of your brain.
Female Speaker: I like to play chess and learn new languages. So anything that tries to get your brain working in different ways.
Male Speaker: Even simply just reading is better than nothing.
Female Speaker: Yeah way to get much.
Male Speaker: You tested out I think you said 59.
Male Speaker: Yeah my brain age was 59 really.
Male Speaker: We tell everybody their brain is 59.
Male Speaker: That means I get to practice more right.
Male Speaker: If you practice, if you work your brain you will get better.
Female Speaker: We got to do new things because we start doing the same things we do over and over again and those pathways, they are not used and you have to use those pathways that aren't used to keep all that functioning well.
Male Speaker: So Doctor's orders exercise your brain just like your body. If you are watching TV in moderation, that's okay but that's a passive activity. Do something active that gets you noggin working overtime, those are doctor's orders and if you do log on now to the doctorstv.com you can actually enter to win your Nintendo DSI XL handheld game, so you can play just like us and figure out what your brain age is, I hope you did better or do better than I did, thank so much for watching.
