Several predictable metabolic changes occur through the aging process, including loss of muscle mass, increased risk of infection, and the potential for compromised neurological function. A selection of safe and evidence-based diet and lifestyle factors, as well as simple nutritional supplements, can restore vitality through the aging process. These same approaches, when applied to neurodegenerative disease (dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, cognitive decline, etc…) can help slow disease progression, and can often help restore previous function.
