There’s something that’s even MORE frustrating than those brain hiccups that seem to happen a lot more often these days.
It’s what your doctor has to say about them.
“You’re just getting older,” he’ll claim. “You’ll just have to accept that.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m not about to accept ANYTHING about getting older, least of all my brain turning to fudge right inside my skull.
Not when I don’t have to…
…and YOU don’t have to either!
Most docs will claim there’s nothing you can do about the aggravating, frustrating, and downright frightening cognitive slips that often strike with age.
But their WRONG.
There are steps you can take RIGHT NOW to save your brain from the old burps-and-hiccups that mark mild cognitive impairment.
And one of them is gonna sound, well, a bit crazy. But new research shows how it can make a dramatic difference.
The mushroom secret to stopping brain drain
This stunning new study reveals a powerful natural brain medicine. Except it delivers what no drug in the world can promise.
It can dramatically slash your risk of mild cognitive impairment and protect you from the frustration of the “mental slowdown” your doc claims is unavoidable with age.
And it comes from the most unexpected place… the ground.
The key is in humble mushrooms. Because as strange as it sounds, researchers say eating more of them can protect your brain as you age.
The latest research finds the more mushrooms you eat, the lower your risk of the devastating memory loss and brain fog that strikes so often in old age.
It’s called mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and it affects nearly 4 in 10 of folks in their 80s.
But it turns out NOT if you make mushrooms a regular item on your menu.
In fact, eating a daily dose of mushrooms could cut your risk of MCI in half!
Fight off cognitive decline with your favorite fungus
The folks in the study tended to eat golden, oyster, shiitake, and white button mushrooms most. But the researchers believe just about ANY kind of mushrooms will do the brain trick.
Plus, they have a hunch how the mushrooms manage this memory-preserving feat.
Mushrooms are packed to the caps with ergothioneine, an inflammation-fighting, oxidation-blocking compound that your body typically produces on its own.
As you get older, however, ergothioneine production can plummet – and some studies have found that low levels lead directly to the brain drain of MCI.
But that’s not the only way your favorite fungus can help. Mushrooms are also loaded with a series of compounds known to enhance nerve growth factors in the brain.
In other words, they can help keep everything humming up there in your brain box.
There’s even evidence that mushrooms can help stop the production of beta-amyloid, phosphorylated tau, and acetylcholinesterase, all of which have been linked to dementia.
That’s a whole BUNCH OF BRAIN BENEFITS simply from munching on more mushrooms. So why not go ahead and order double the fungus on your next pizza pie?
After all, you’ve got nothing to lose…except your memory of you skip on the ‘shrooms, of course.
