Scientists are sounding the alarm. We could be just five short years away from 7.1 MILLION Americans being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
But you DON’T have to just sit around waiting to be one of them.
It’s true you can’t do a thing about the biggest risk factor for this devastating disease… your age.
But you CAN take steps beginning TODAY to help protect your brain, stop the damage, and even reverse some of the loss.
Alzheimer’s starts by stealing your memories. But it doesn’t stop there. It goes on to take away your ability to think, speak, and be YOU. Eventually, the killer even robs you of your life.
Refuse to be its next victim. Scrub away the threat instead.
With THIS simple “cleansing” trick, you can build a protective barrier against cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease starting TONIGHT.
Stay one step ahead of dementia
It could already be happening—the slow and silent accumulation of toxins deep inside your brain.
These damaging particles slip past the blood-brain barrier and start mucking up the works. Eventually, the build-up disrupts the vital connections between your neurons so they can no longer effectively signal each other.
Chances are you won’t even notice it’s happening until it’s too late. But don’t worry. I’ve got an effective solution that could help you get ahead of that damage.
Research has revealed a way to essentially “scrub” those garbage proteins right out of your brain. Best of all, there are no complicated routines to learn, expensive pills to pop or impossible lifestyle adjustments to make.
If you’re in the early stages of cognitive struggles, this simple solution could help block the damage and stop the progression of the condition. Commit to it early enough, and it may even reverse some of your memory loss and prevent the decline from turning into full-blown dementia.
And if you don’t have and cognitive issues yet, this same simple “cleansing” technique could help ensure you never face those struggles.
Reduce Alzheimer’s risk with this sleep secret
It turns out your brain has its own built-in cleansing system. At certain times… when the conditions are just right… your body sends a rush of “cleaning fluids” through your brain to clear away the junk.
These cerebral spinal fluids help scrub away the damaged proteins that can clog up your neural networks. And accumulated garbage, like the beta-amyloid plaques which are often a red flag for future cognitive decline, dementia, and Alzheimer’s get washed away.
But here’s the thing. This process is only triggered when you’re asleep. And even then it doesn’t happen all the time.
This brain scrub only occurs when you enter something called slow-wave sleep. During slow-wave sleep, your breathing, blood flow, heart rate, and brain cell activity drop dramatically.
This signals to the cleaning crew it’s time to get to work. And your brain unleashes a cleansing wave of cerebral spinal fluids.
Brain scans reveal that each pulse in slow-wave brain activity sends the fluids rushing into the open cavities of your brain, filling in the spaces. And as the fluid drains back out, it takes Alzheimer’s-linked toxins right along with it.
But there’s just one hitch. This system works like clockwork when we’re younger. But as we age, we can go from getting several hours of slow-wave sleep a night to maybe 30 minutes or less after the age of 65.
When you need it the most, short-wave sleep can get harder and harder to come by. And your risk for memory loss and dementia can skyrocket.
But there’s an easy way to increase the amount of brain-cleansing slow-wave sleep you get regardless of age. And believe it or not, it starts in the kitchen.
As strange as it sounds, try eating more fiber.
Studies show increasing the amount of fiber we eat is linked to better sleep in general. But more importantly, for our purposes today, it’s been shown to specifically help with slow-wave sleep.
You can easily raise the fiber in your diet by eating more fruits such as apples, pears, berries, and veggies such as artichokes, carrots, beets, and broccoli. And don’t forget to toss some dementia-battling beans and nuts into the mix, too.
