You’ve misplaced your keys again. As you frantically search for them all over the house you can’t help but wonder if this is the start of something far worse.
Is this just the beginning of worsening memory problems? Are you seeing the first signs of dementia?
When you’re young it’s easy to laugh off the occasional brain hiccup, and make jokes about having a “senior moment.” But as you age memory problems aren’t a laughing matter anymore.
In fact, they can be downright terrifying.
But researchers have recently uncovered a shocking connection between diet and memory loss.
Gluten linked to memory problems
A new study finds that the refined grains American’s are scarfing down by the bagful in their largely processed-foods diet could be to blame for your memory troubles both big and small.
That’s actually great news because it means all you may need to do to get your brain firing on all cylinders again is to go gluten free. And there’s no easier time than now to do it with so many gluten-free options out there.
Gluten is found in the wheat that’s used to make breads, pastas and countless other baked products.
And while those with celiac disease are completely unable to process gluten there are a lot of other folks who simply have a sensitivity to the stuff that can make them feel miserable.
And now, researchers tell us, that sensitivity might be triggering more than just a bloated belly, it could be robbing you of your memory too.
But the great news is that giving up the gluten appears to work like a charm.
In the study a group of 100 typical middle-aged adults switched to a gluten-free diet for three weeks and then switched back to their old diet for the next three weeks. The changes were stunning.
Give up grains to feel sharper and more focused
When they eliminated gluten from their diet, belly cramps and stomach pain dropped drastically.
Plus they felt sharper, less tired and reportedly had a much easier time focusing on tasks driving down those troubling memory complaints.
If you’re experiencing some brain fog or memory lapses of your own why not give a gluten-free diet a try? It could be the key to getting rid of those frightening senior moments forever.
