    Language stimulus is essential for healthy activity for the human brain.

    Hi, teachers
    In the next sentence, is the underlined article "a" necessary?

    Language stimulus is essential for a healthy activity for the human brain.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would change the second "for" to "of".
