Researchers studying risk factors for stroke discovered a link between heart and brain health. Through a combination of physical and mental evaluations and assessments, they found that people with high cardiovascular health scores had higher mental test scores. Conducting the same tests several years later yielded the same results. More research is needed to determine why the link occurs, but the conclusion so far is simple: A healthier heart leads to a healthier brain.
