You're an Adult, but Your Brain Might Not Be, Experts Say

A new opinion paper on when adulthood actually begins doesn’t really answer the question of when your brain becomes an adult, according to CNN Health. The only thing scientists are sure of is that the brain continues to mature well into your 20s and even your early 30s.

The new commentary is a fascinating compilation of information about how the human brain changes and matures. Although much is known about how the brain ages, it’s still a neurological mystery in many ways — which only confirms that it’s more important than ever to care for your brain in ways that we know are nurturing and healthy. For example, it’s now known that the quality, quantity, and composition of the bacteria in your gut have enormous influence on your brain.

We also know that both your body and brain need beneficial health-promoting fats for optimal function. Those fats include organic butter from raw milk, clarified butter called organic grass fed raw butter, olives, organic virgin olive oil and coconut oil, nuts like pecans and macadamia, free-range eggs, wild Alaskan salmon, and avocado, for example.

Nutritional ketosis — which is achieved with a high-quality fat, low-carbohydrate diet, also helps your brain in a number of ways. In fact, this dietary strategy may be the key for all-round, optimal health. Studies have also shown that maintaining nutritional ketosis may have health benefits in preventing or alleviating diseases such as obesity, diabetes, cancer, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, autism, migraines, traumatic brain injuries, polycystic ovary syndrome and much more.
