Patrick Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver have experienced firsthand what Alzheimer’s does to patients and their families—and they are not alone. An estimated six million people were affected by the disease in 2020, and that number is projected to skyrocket to 14 million by 2060. And yet, Alzheimer’s Disease still does not get the recognition and research it deserves, so Schwarzenegger and Shriver have made it their mission to raise awareness. Enter, MOSH (which stands for Maria Owings Shriver Health), their nutrition company committed to creating conversation around brain health education for those of all ages. Because, yes, you can enhance your brain health in your 20s, 30, 40s, 50s, and beyond.
“You are in the driver's seat. There are things you can do today that will impact your brain health tomorrow, or next year, or five years down the road,” Schwarzenegger says on this episode of the mindbodygreen podcast. Here, the mother-son duo share their nonnegotiable habits to nurture their brains.
