CRON and Brain Anti-Aging

I’ve been talking here about the physical benefits of a CRON diet (calorie restricted optimal nutrition). Pair this with intermittent fasting and you can quickly see profound health benefits – the least of which is a smaller waist. But what about our brains? Do they do better with less?
In a study that Italian researches did with mice, the mice certainly benefitted from calorie restriction as far as
function. More CREB1 is good. The scientists achieved this increase by decreasing the daily calories consumed by the mice by 30%.
