Description

This episode is brought to you by BiOptimizers Magnesium Breakthrough, LMNT, and Rupa Health.


Dwindling memory is thought to be a normal part of aging. But just because something is common doesn’t make it normal. There is a lot we can do to safeguard the memory center of our brain, and it’s never too late to get started.


Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Majid Fotuhi to discuss the top diet and lifestyle factors that shrink our brains and insightful tips on what we can start doing to grow and preserve our brain health today. 


Dr. Fotuhi is a neurologist with expertise in the fields of memory, concussion, and successful aging. Through his 30 years of teaching, clinical work, and neuroscience research at Harvard Medical School and Johns Hopkins, Dr. Fotuhi has developed a multidisciplinary program for helping people of all ages improve their memory and attention. The results of his program have been published in several scientific journals and his three books.
