Sometimes you only get one chance. A single shot at making a difference when it matters most.
In this case, it’s a golden opportunity to take action to stop dementia and Alzheimer’s disease before they get started.
Hit it just right, and it’s better than any jackpot since your prize is a healthy brain as you grow older. Miss it, and you could be trapped inside a nightmare.
Because it turns out timing is everything when it comes to dementia.
But the good news is that it’s not a guessing game. Not anymore, anyway. Because new research reveals the EXACT right moment to act.
And I’ve got the inside scoop on two actions you can take when that moment arrives to help save your brain… and maybe even your life.
What happens right BEFORE dementia strikes
Folks with dementia typically have two signs of the disease show up in their brains…
- damaged proteins called beta amyloid plaques
- tau tangles
Most of the research efforts so far have been focused on beta-amyloid. In fact, mainstream medicine has put close to 100 percent of its energy there.
But a new study shows they’ve been looking in the wrong place all along. As it turns out, TAU might be the most critical warning sign of dementia.
Like clouds before a storm, tau turns up in parts of the brain just BEFORE those regions fall apart. And when it really starts to accumulate, that region is usually toast within a year, the study finds.
In other words, that gives you one year to stop the tau and save your brain from dementia. And that’s your golden ticket.
There’s a catch here – two of them, in fact, and they’re both pretty big.
First, tau tests aren’t routine. In fact, at the moment, the two main ways they’re done is either via a spinal tap or autopsy. One’s unpleasant, the other’s too late.
And second, even if you know it’s there, there’s not much you can do about it at the moment.
Tau workaround could save your brain
There have been multiple drugs tested in Alzheimer’s patients that target tau and/or beta-amyloid. And even when they “work” – even when they clear away the damaged proteins – the patients don’t improve.
It seems that by the time the dementia symptoms reach a certain point – advanced enough for doctors to run the tests needed to spot the tau – it’s often too late. The damage is done.
But I’ve got a workaround. It’s super simple… and kind of clever, too (if I do say so myself).
There’s zero downside to taking action NOW to stop defective tau. And if you can stop it now, you can prevent the damage, block the decline, and avoid the dementia
It turns out one way you may be able to start fighting off tau right away is absolutely delicious. And that is to use more extra-virgin olive oil.
In a recent study on mice, EVOO slashed tau buildups by 60 percent and improved memory at the same time.
Another is to get more high-quality deep sleep. That’s the phase your brain uses to clear out damaged proteins such as tau and other toxins that could contribute to the development of dementia..
But remember, it isn’t just about sleep quantity here. Sleep quality is vital too. And if your own quality is suffering, consider a natural sleep aid such as valerian or melatonin to get things back on track.
