Your doctor will NEVER admit it.
In fact, it flies in the face of everything he’s ever been told about memory loss and cognitive decline as well as dementia and even Alzheimer’s disease.
He believes in the “aging myth.”
As you get older, well, this is just what happens. Brain cells die – and they NEVER come back.
But new research exposes the TRUTH about this so-called conventional wisdom.
It’s NOT automatic… it DOESN’T have to happen… and you CAN slow and even stop it cold.
And that means there’s a new way to…
STOP the memory loss and RESTORE your brain cells!
Scientists had believed the brain stops growing new cells over time. That seems logical. After all, all our brains shrink a little as we get older.
While some shrink is expected, some people lose more cells than others. And that’s a major risk factor for dementia.
But there’s always at least SOME shrink.
Or so they’ve thought!
The new study finds that your brain is actually capable of growing new cells in your 60s… 70s… 80s… and even 90s!
And that, they say, opens the door to REPLACING lost cells.
4 secrets to growing NEW brain cells no matter your age
They’re hoping, of course, the cook up a drug to help stimulate new cells.
But there are ALREADY ways to do just that – no drugs needed…
Best known as the exotic spice that gives Indian food its distinct color, this compound also has a rare power. It can CROSS the blood-brain barrier! Once inside, it’s been shown to block inflammation, fight the damage that leads to dementia and – here’s the key in light of the new study – stimulate a hormone called BDNF, which helps NEW neurons to form. In other words it could help you grow new brain cells.
Like curcumin, this is another plant compound… but this one’s a little more common. It’s found in parsley, thyme, chamomile, and red pepper. In 2015, researchers found that it can help neurons (brain cells) grow and strengthen the connections between them.
3. Fish oil:
The omega-3 fatty acids in a good fish oil supplement are already proven to help with mood, memory, and more. And in 2014, scientists found that the higher your levels, the fewer brain cells you’ll lose due to aging… giving you more brain VOLUME and more brain POWER. The effect was equivalent to reversing TWO FULL YEARS of aging.
4. Get busy in the bedroom:
Looking for an excuse to keep things cooking into your senior years? You’ve come to the right place! A study in 2014 found regular sex speeds production of extra brain cells in the hippocampus. This was a study on rats, but there’s really no reason NOT to test it for yourself.
And don’t forget to use the bed for its other purpose, too: Sleep is critical to brain function. A 2017 study found that missing out on shut-eye causes the internal cleanup system to go wild. Instead of chasing out dead and damaged brain cells, it eats away at EVERYTHING.
Sleep more… and you’ll have more brain cells, too!
