I’ve got a classic bad news/good news scenario for you today.
First, the bad news. Your brain is turning to mush. And you can’t stop it, because it’s already happened.
Somewhere in your late 40s or early 50s, the critical pathways in your gray matter started to unplug themselves. It’s one reason we have more of those frustrating brain hiccups as we grow older.
But I promised you some good news. And here it is.
New research reveals a REPAIR KIT you can set loose inside your brain.
It can help…
- Restore those critical pathways
- Bring your noggin back online
- Un-mush your gray matter
This could help keep you SHARPER even as you grow OLDER. And it just might hold the key to stopping dementia and cognitive decline, too.
Feed your neurons THIS for ultimate brain protection
Researchers scanned the brains of close to 1,000 people across all age groups, from 18 to 88. They found that the physical signs of cognitive decline appear a whole lot earlier than expected, often in the late 40s.
But they also found something else. The uncovered WHY it happens… and HOW to fix it. And it starts with sugar.
As you get older, your brain’s ability to process the sugars that come in through the bloodstream starts to fade. That, the study finds, essentially “starves” neurons, which in turn leads to that brain network going all mushy.
But they also found something else.
There’s a way to FEED those neurons again by giving them something they can process more quickly, easily, efficiently, and effectively. Ketones, as it turns out, can reactivate those starving neurons, helping to put them all back online and fighting off cognitive decline.
In the study, they used a special ketone drink, which led to more ketones in the brain and better activity among the neurons.
Those mushy networks were un-mushed!
The dinner plate solution to battling cognitive decline
But there’s another way to give your brain those firing-on-all-cylinders neurons. And this one they also tested in the study and found works just as well, and no special drinks were needed.
A low-carb diet can work on both ends, cutting glucose and raising ketones at the same time to fight cognitive decline.
doesn’t mean you necessarily have to follow Atkins to the letter or eat bacon-wrapped bun-less cheeseburgers. There are many ways to go low-carb these days, including some that are not only healthier but also more varied and easier to follow.
The Mediterranean diet is already lower in carbs by nature. Cut back on the grains a bit, and it pretty much IS a low-carb diet. But a version that’s far more enjoyable and many people find a little more realistic over the long haul.
You could also make your own rules by building around the basics. Eat more healthy fats – especially those found in fish – and cut out processed foods, drastically reduce grains (including pasta and bread), and drop the sugars. Your carbs will plunge, and those ketones will jump.
Along with better brain function, you’ll enjoy a slimmer waistline, effortless blood sugar control, and a lower risk of nearly every major chronic disease, including cognitive decline.
