Dinner Plate Hack Preserves Memory
It’s inevitable, they say. Your memory is simply going to turn to mush as you age.
So you may as well accept it. After all, some cognitive decline is to be expected, right?
It’s true that aging and memory loss OFTEN go hand-in-hand. But they don’t HAVE to.
Keeping your brain firing on all cylinders well into your Golden Years – instead of slipping into a slow and steady decline – could come down to what you choose to put in your shopping cart.
Pick memory-boosting foods instead of cognition thieves, and you could stay as sharp as a tack regardless of your age.
In fact, you can begin feeding your aging brain what it craves TONIGHT with a potent nutrient that’s proven to boost cognitive function (and ease depression).
You don’t have to be facing a dementia diagnosis to be worried about your brain function as you age.
With each passing year, every brain burp becomes more of a concern. So naturally, maintaining your memory throughout your senior years is a top priority.
Stay Sharp with THIS Memory-Boosting Nutrient
An animal study uncovered a simple and powerful way to do precisely this: beef up your vitamin K intake.
To test the impact of K on brain function, researchers divided rats into two groups. The first was given vitamin K2 (in the form of MK-7 or menaquinone-7). While group Two (the control) didn’t receive any supplementation.
After 17 months, the critters that were receiving the K2 had REDUCED levels of:
- cognitive impairment
They also had measurable improvements in spatial memory AND learning ability.
Now, this was an animal study, of course. So more research is needed to see how these benefits manifest in people.
But we’ve ALREADY seen human studies showing the brain benefits of vitamin K. In one, folks who regularly ate foods high in K1 (at least one serving daily) had the same cognitive abilities as someone 11 years younger.
Stock Up On Memory Protecting K
Research shows vitamin K protects nerves from harmful substances in the brain. And a growing stack of studies shows that K2 could contribute to the prevention of Alzheimer’s and slow the disease’s progression.
Of course, loading up on vitamin K alone won’t guarantee good mental function or zero memory slips as you age. But it clearly IS a vital contributing factor to healthy cognition.
To raise your vitamin K1 levels, eat more leafy greens, including spinach, kale, mustard greens, and lettuce. Eating them with a fat will boost the absorption of nutrients.
And for vitamin K2, add more fermented foods, eggs, meat, and fish to the menu.
P.S. There’s another way to shield your brain as you age. And it involves protecting your synapses even in the presence of dementia-linked beta-amyloid plaque. Click here for all the details.
