It’s FINALLY here, my friend. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get AHEAD of the single most feared disease of aging… dementia.
Because let’s face it…
We can OUTSMART heart disease…
We can OUTLAST diabetes…
And we can even OUTMANEUVER arthritis pain…
But when dementia kicks in, we’re often powerless. It could be the end of the line. As doctors say, there’s not much you can do to stop the relentless onslaught of this devastating condition.
Until now. Because exciting new research just out reveals exactly HOW that damage often begins.
And that priceless insight could give you a real shot to BEAT it early… if you act right now.
This sleep disorder could DESTROY your brain
Grip your pillow and hold on tight. You’re going to need it because that’s where it happens. In bed at night.
When you’ve climbed into the sack, and are at your most vulnerable, this thing is working overtime trying to hurt you.
The new study finds that a common sleep disorder called APNEA could kick off the chain of events that leads to Alzheimer’s disease, at least in some cases.
Loud and violent snoring following by total silence is a dead giveaway for this condition. That silence might be a relief to your spouse. But in reality, it’s because you’ve literally STOPPED BREATHING in your sleep. And it can happen hundreds of times a night.
The new study focused on HEALTHY seniors with no hint of memory struggles… yet.
The researchers weren’t trying to see who has the disease, but who has the markers that indicate dementia could be in their future.
And did they ever find it. Brain scans revealed that folks with sleep apnea had much higher levels of beta-amyloid, the protein linked to the damage that leads to dementia.
They also found signs of inflammation in key portions of the brain, especially the posterior cingulate cortex and precuneus areas. Both of which are known to play a major role in the onset of Alzheimer’s.
Fix the apnea and fix your dementia risk
Even more frightening is MOST of the folks they tested had NO IDEA they even had apnea. And as strange as that may sound, it’s actually often the case.
Since apnea happens at night while you’re asleep, you’re not aware of it. And that makes this common condition a hidden epidemic.
If you snore, there’s at least some chance you have it. If you wake up feeling not quite as refreshed as you should, that’s another sign. Morning sore throats or headaches and midday drowsiness could also indicate apnea. Which means you could be at risk for dementia.
But you CAN reverse it.
First, lose weight. Dropping even 10-15 pounds can ease apnea symptoms, and losing more can potentially cure it completely.
Second, if you sleep on your back, try shifting to your side. One study found that up to half of all apnea cases improve with this simple change of position.
And third, go TIGER… and I don’t mean “Tiger King.”
Tongue exercises such as the “tiger yell” can improve snoring and apnea. To do it, you open your mouth like a tiger about to roar (no actual roaring necessary) and hold for about 5 seconds.
Google “tongue exercises” for more options.
