Better Memory Tour Reaches Philadelphia
Madison, Wis – (May 30, 2012) The Prevagen® Express is continuing the “Better Memory Tour” this week with stops in Bryn Mawr, North Wales, Brookhaven, and Lebanon, PA in order to help Americans improve their cognitive health. Neuroscience researcher Mark Underwood will be presenting “The New Secrets of Brain Health” - highlighting recent research results from the Madison Memory Study.
The groundbreaking research in the double-blind, placebo-controlled trial demonstrated that the jellyfish derived protein, apoaequorin, significantly improved short-term memory, learning, and word recall in people over 40 years old.
The “Better Memory Tour” will focus on educating attendees on numerous ways to improve memory.
“We are very excited to be speaking to local communities. The opportunity to share our research is very rewarding. Memory loss is a growing problem throughout the country. In Pennsylvania, the rate of those with a memory disorder will increase by 55% by the year 2025, so being proactive to incorporate positive lifestyle changes is our message,” Underwood explains.
The latest research shows that between the ages of 25 and 55, we lose up to 50 percent of our brain power! By the age of 40 two-thirds experience occasional memory lapses and by the time we reach 65 years old, 25 percent of us will suffer from mild cognitive impairment.
Mark Underwood will be at Arrowroot in Bryn Mawr, PA on June 1 at 3:00pm presenting “The New Secrets of Brain Health”. On June 2, the Tour stops in North Wales at Holly Hill at 1:00 pm and Burman's Natural Foods in Brookhaven, PA at 4:00 pm. The Tour ends in Lebanon at Queens Natural Market with a 3:30 pm presentation on Sunday, June 3.
