Through the brain imaging work at Amen Clinics with tens of thousands of patients, Dr. and Mrs. Amen have seen that you can literally make your brain bigger, stronger, and even younger using some very simple strategies. It’s a huge promise, but one they’ve seen occur repeatedly in people who come to Amen Clinics or who adopt their program.

In this fun, engaging program, Dr. and Mrs. Amen count down their top 50 ways to grow your brain. If you do just a few of these … you can think and feel better in a very short period of time. None of the strategies they’ll teach you are difficult.

For example, did you know that dark chocolate can boost blood flow to your brain, help improve your mood, and decrease anxiety? In one study, seniors who ate more of it had a lower incidence of dementia than those who ate less.
