High cholesterol and high blood pressure are conditions that most people associate with being bad for the heart, but recent research is showing that they are also bad for your head. So, there are now even more reasons to take care of your health.

People with high cholesterol levels are more likely to suffer memory problems than people who have low cholesterol. The exact reasons why this is the case is still not entirely understood. Cholesterol can be somewhat reduced through proper dieting, but people with a genetic predisposition to high levels cannot control it entirely by diet and should consult their physician for proper treatment.

Hypertension can also cause memory impairment. Scientists think that the increased blood pressure can cause damage to the tiny blood vessels that terminate in your brain. If these fragile blood vessels get damaged, the neurons that they feed will not be getting the nutrients and oxygen that they need to function at peek performance. Untreated, hypertension can eventually result in dementia, so if you have high blood pressure, make sure you do something about it.
