Abstract:The article discusses the significance of supplying adequate blood flow to the brain to function properly. It is said that the most significant thing that the brain needs is an excellent supply of oxygen from adequate blood flow, since blood cells carry oxygen to the brain and to the rest of body organs. Oxygen then enables mitochondria in the brain cells to pump adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Likewise, a stable supply of glucose is needed to make ATP.
