Cognitive decline doesn’t just happen one day. And neither does dementia.
These devastating conditions are often caused by the slow and silent accumulation of toxins deep inside your brain.
These damaged particles slip inside, muck up the works, and eventually disrupt the vital connections between neurons so they can no longer effectively signal each other.
Here’s the scary part. Those garbage proteins could be building up in YOUR brain, right now. And chances are you won’t even notice it until it’s too late.
But don’t panic. Because today I’ve got an effective solution that could help you get ahead of that damage reducing your risk for dementia and cognitive decline.
New research reveals a way to essentially “wash” those toxic particles right out of your brain.
If you’re in the early stages of cognitive struggles, this simple solution could help…
- BLOCK the damage
- STOP the progression
- REVERSE memory loss
- PREVENT decline from turning into dementia
And if you don’t have it yet, this same “brain washing” trick can help ensure you never have to face those struggles.
The sleep secret to a “clean as a whistle” brain
Your brain has its own built-in cleaning system.
At certain times… in certain conditions… it sends a rush of “cleansing fluids” through.
These cerebral spinal fluids sweep in and wash out damaged proteins that clog your neural networks. Junk like beta-amyloid plaques which are often a red flag for future cognitive decline and dementia.
But here’s the thing. This cleansing process only works at certain times. Specifically, it happens when you sleep. And even then it doesn’t happen all the time.
This internal cleanse ONLY happens during a very SPECIFIC form of sleep. It’s called slow-wave sleep. It’s a crucial phase where everything – breathing, heart rate, blood flow, and brain cell activity – all slow down dramatically.
That’s when brain restoration and rejuvenation takes place. And the new study finds it’s also when your brain unleashes this cleansing wave of cerebral spinal fluids.
Brain scans revealed that each pulse in slow-wave brain activity sent those dementia-battling fluids into the cavities of the brain, filling in those spaces. Once there, they grab onto toxins, washing them away as they drain back out.
So far, so good. But there’s a problem. When you’re younger, you may get several hours of slow-wave sleep. But after 65, you could get 30 minutes or less.
Yes, just when you need it the most… you get the least. And your dementia risk can shoot through the roof.
Fight off dementia with… FOOD?
But I have some good news too.
There’s an easy way to get MORE of that cleansing, dementia fighting, slow-wave sleep. A weird trick that works as well as it is strange.
Eat more fiber. Really.
First of all, fiber helps with sleep in general. But studies have shown it can ALSO specifically help with slow-wave sleep.
Avoid overdoing grains and get more fiber from fruits such as apples, pears, and berries, as well as veggies such as artichokes, carrots, beets, and broccoli. And not forget to toss some dementia -battling beans and nuts into the mix, too.
