They say you can’t turn back time. But new research reveals a way you might be able to at least slow it down to a crawl.
And you can make that slow down happen right where it matters most… deep inside your brain.
All too often, an aging brain is a slower brain, one prone to memory lapses and cognitive struggles. But not everyone faces that mental sluggishness. Some people hit their 80s sharp as ever.
The new study reveals what could be the secret that keeps their agile brains “younger” and faster than their peers as they age.
And it’s something you can try at home… right now… and start reaping those benefits for yourself.
Slow age-related brain shrink to crawl?!
There’s an ugly truth about aging that doesn’t get nearly enough attention.
Your brain is shrinking.
Mine is, too. ALL of our brains are shrinking but at different rates.
If it shrinks too fast, you could end up trapped in the nightmare of cognitive decline and dementia. But if you can slow that shrink, you can help preserve your brainpower and stop those conditions cold.
The drug companies have pumped big money into trying to develop drugs that can slow the shrink. And they’ve got NOTHING to show for it.
But new research reveals what they can only dream of having – a way to help…
- Slow that brain shrink
- Protect your memory
- Block dementia
And it is BEYOND simple. Are you ready for this?
Just get a little movement.
Older folks who MOVE more have bigger, healthier brains. And if you move the MOST, you can practically stop time in your brain. In fact, according to the new research, you could remove four years (or MORE) of aging from your gray matter.
De-age your gray matter by making a move
All of your organs need blood and oxygen, but your brain requires more than any other part of your body. Good circulation keeps it flowing. And the best way to improve that all-important circulation is with exercise.
Don’t worry. This doesn’t mean you’re doomed to doing jumping jacks, workout videos, or getting up at dawn to run up and down a flight of stairs dozens of times.
You certainly CAN do that… if that’s what you’re into. But there are much easier options.
The new study finds ANY level of invigorating activity will work – if you do it long enough. Even LIGHT activity… like housework, messing around in the garden, or a stroll… will do the trick, if you put about an hour a day into it.
If you want to step it up a little… maybe with a brisk walk… you can cut the time needed to about 35 minutes a day.
And if you ARE into something more intense like running, rowing, or cycling, you’d just need to put about 20 minutes a day into it – or roughly 2 hours a week.
For the best results, you don’t have to commit to a single activity. Mix it up a little. Keep it interesting, and you’re much more likely to keep at it.
From gardening to dancing up a storm around the dining room table, it all counts – and it can all not only preserve your brain but protect your heart, too.
