How Fit is Your Brain?
Last time (click here to read) I shared my experience of asking a group of professional women whether they ever experience “senior moments”, brain fog or fuzzy thinking.
With many nodding in agreement, I went on to share that the brain can age faster than the body.
In fact, as a recent study showed, most women don’t know they’re at a higher risk for serious brain issues than men. [Ref. 1]
But you don’t have to be one of them … since symptoms develop 20-30 years before diagnosis.
To let you check RIGHT NOW, I’ve put together these 2 easy ways to know how you’re really thinking!
① What’s your risk?
To understand your risk factors, take the “Fit” Brain Assessment below.

So you see the risk factors are about lifestyle and your story … and they are cumulative. Everything matters.
② Functioning fully?
To see how your brain is working in 11 different areas, click here to take the SLUMS exam. Make sure you set an alarm for 7 minutes. That’s how much time you have to finish it.
Scoring well across the 11 areas tested equals a fully functional brain … and full life.

They finally have some hope of finding the answers they’ve been searching for. They’re not crazy.
