Time wears differently on women’s and men’s brains. A recent study found that the female brain appears about 3.8 years younger than men’s. In the study, several researchers looked at brain metabolism – how efficiently the brains were able to turn sugar into fuel that powers it. Women consistently fared better.
Looking ahead, researchers plan on taking a deeper dive into the relationship between these “younger” brains and cognitive issues.
As for now, you can take your brain health into your own hands by eating the right foods and making moves to stay sharp for as long as you can.
