Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a neurotrophin, which is a family of proteins involved in the growth and survival of neurons. BDNF works differently in the developing or adult (fully-formed) brain as follows:

  • Developing Brain: BDNF regulates brain neuron survival and growth in the growing brain.
  • Adult Brain: BDNF plays an important role in learning and memory processing.

Increasing BDNF can significantly enhance cognitive abilities and is a possible additional treatment in neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, taking natural steps towards enhancing BDNF can significantly improve memory, learning and outcomes.

In this article we’ll explore 15 scientifically proven ways to naturally up-regulate your BDNF production. Let's do this.
