4-Week Alzheimer’s PREVENTION Plan
How long does it take to make a measurable improvement in your brain health?
A day? A week? A lifetime?
When it’s preventing or significantly delaying Alzheimer’s, you might be surprised by the timeline.
Even with major improvements like decreasing harmful beta-amyloid plaque and normalizing hormones linked to the disease, it could take as little as 4 weeks to make a SIGNIFICANT difference!
Here’s how you can get started TODAY.
There’s a LOT we still don’t know about Alzheimer’s disease.
What we do know is that Alzheimer’s patients tend to have higher:
- levels of beta-amyloid plaque in their brains
- blood levels of the hormone cortisol
- levels of systemic inflammation
But there’s one thing that can help reduce all three of these. And that can effectively DELAY or PREVENT the onset of Alzheimer’s.
This was revealed in a mouse study in which the mice were genetically altered to develop beta-amyloid plaques and Alzheimer’s-like symptoms.
You see, beta-amyloid plaques are like kryptonite for your brain. They impair synaptic connections and damage brain cells.
For the study, the mice did a ladder-climbing exercise designed to mimic resistance exercises (any activity where you lift or pull against resistance to build muscle) done by humans.
Blood results revealed MAJOR differences between the mice that did resistance exercises and those that didn’t.
In those doing the resistance training, blood levels of the hormone equivalent of cortisol were normal. In fact, they were the SAME as the mice NOT genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s.
And their brain tissue analysis showed decreases in the formation of beta-amyloid plaques.
Incredibly, this reveals that resistance exercises have the potential to REVERSE changes in the brain that cause the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers believe that resistance exercise is so effective because of its anti-inflammatory effects.
Sure, this was “only” an animal study. But don’t discount it!
A growing stack of studies in HUMANS has shown that exercise can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s. Research like this gives us valuable insight into how.
Plus, it’s fantastic news that resistance exercises, in particular, can be so beneficial. That means even older adults or others with barriers to doing more intense aerobic workouts (like running or doing high-intensity interval training) can get the brain benefits.
Resistance training includes exercises like squats, chest presses, bicep curls, and calf raises.
I suggest you check YouTube for an appropriate, free workout to try. You can search for things like “beginner resistance training” or “resistance exercises for seniors” for some good options.
P.S. When this ONE aspect of your health is in good working order, you won’t just be slashing your risk of Alzheimer’s. You’ll ALSO improve your immune system, mood, sleep quality, heart health, and more. CLICK HERE for the secret.

Yesterday, I told you how critical micronutrients are for protecting cognitive function and reducing your risk of dementia. Using nutrients to support brain, heart, and even metabolic health is common. But a recent study highlighted a set of “crystal ball” nutrients that can actually PREDICT disease severity in a condition most folks wouldn’t ever think...
The older you get, the worse your odds are of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia. And, even worse, after you hit 65, your risk of dementia DOUBLES every 5 years. But it doesn’t have to.
