Most people are well-versed on the first three but are in the dark when it comes to undertaking a brain fitness regimen.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2007
SharpBrains announced today the immediate release of the first ever brain health and fitness content feed of 20 topical articles with weekly updates to follow. The SharpBrains “brain feed” makes science-based, high quality, accessible information available to consumers and professionals free of charge on a variety of ‘brain training’ topics. Additionally, SharpBrains will offer custom content services to news organizations, health providers and insurance companies, retirement communities, medical content suppliers, magazines and other websites interested in offering unique content on this topic to their audience.
“We are witnessing the birth of a new technology-based brain fitness market, estimated to grow to $80-100 million this year for adults alone,” said Alvaro Fernandez, CEO and co-founder of SharpBrains. "The mainstream media has started to educate adults on the importance of brain exercise. A growing number of companies are developing science-based programs and organizations like the CDC (Center for Diseases Control and Prevention) and the Alzheimer’s Association are partnering to make cognitive health a public policy priority, not to mention the commercial success of ‘brain training’ games such as the Nintendo Brain Age series. The time is ripe for services that help inform and guide consumers and professionals alike, building on our well-received SharpBrains 10-Point Checklist and Brain Fitness 101 eGuide."
SharpBrains is offering a weekly article in its free content feed to help website and newsletter publishers disseminate high-quality information on this emerging field of science-based brain health and fitness. Additionally, SharpBrains experts and writers are available to provide custom services to interested companies. Customer services include preparing tailored guides, brochures, and e-newsletters on the topics of brain health and brain exercise.
"Research shows that physical exercise, good nutrition, stress management and brain exercise are the four critical pillars for attaining and maintaining good brain health," said Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg, neuroscientist and Chief Scientific Advisor and Co-Founder of SharpBrains. "Most people are well-versed on the first three but are in the dark when it comes to undertaking a brain fitness regimen."
