“Energy” BREAKTHROUGH Shields Your Brain
We know that Alzheimer’s patients have a buildup of materials called amyloid beta plaque and tau in their brains.
And we know this gunk disrupts communication between brain cells leading to symptoms like memory loss.
What we DON’T know is how to do anything significant about it.
Countless research dollars have been poured into reversing this process, most of which has been a BIG FAT FAILURE.
Clearly, we’ve been missing a BIG piece of the Alzheimer’s puzzle.
But now, one group of researchers thinks they might have found it.
And this could be the break we’ve been waiting for in treating and preventing Alzheimer’s…
Your brain requires more energy to run than ANY other system in your body.
And most of that energy is produced by vital cells called mitochondria. These tiny factories transform food into energy (adenosine triphosphate, or ATP) that fuels your body.
Multi-tasking mitochondria also send signals to other cells and help protect cells from damage.
They’re essential for your entire body but are especially critical for your brain.
Each neuron contains thousands of mitochondria to help power it up for its high energy needs.
And those mitochondria get constantly renewed to stay healthy, so your neurons can carry out their essential tasks.
Healthy mitochondria = healthy neurons.
But if mitochondria become damaged, your neurons will experience an energy shortage that prevents them from functioning properly.
This includes preventing them from repairing damage to brain cells.
When brain cells are NOT repaired, damage accumulates, and some neurons die off. And this paves the way for dementia and Alzheimer’s.
Studies confirm that people with Alzheimer’s have a loss of mitochondria in their neurons.
This is the science behind the new theory of mitochondrial dysfunction being the TRUE root cause of Alzheimer’s.
The scientific community is brainstorming ways to transfer healthy mitochondria into cells. That means studies that test replacing damaged neurons in people with dementia aren’t too far off.
In the meantime, here are seven simple steps you can take to boost your mitochondrial function—and help protect your brain in the process:
- Eat less.
- Practice intermittent fasting.
- Stop eating refined carbs (soda, white bread).
- Eat more quality protein (grass-fed beef and eggs).
- Consume more omega-3s.
- Move more throughout the day.
- Get more quality sleep.
We may FINALLY be seeing a light at the end of the Alzheimer’s tunnel. So go ahead and juice up your internal energy factories and feed your brain while we wait for more research.

Men, if you find yourself suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED), you want solutions. FAST. And I get it. Regardless of your age, it’s a disturbing condition. But today, I have a warning for you. New research reveals that instead of seeing ED as merely a problem that needs fixing, you should see it as a...
Yesterday, I told you about new research revealing that obesity-related heart deaths have tripled in recent years. If this has you thinking about ways to reduce the number on the scale, great! But if you’re considering choosing sugar-free, zero-calorie packaged diet foods made with sugar substitutes… That’s NOT the way to do it. Sugar substitutes...
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. In fact, the CDC says it’s responsible for 1 in 5 deaths, killing someone every 33 seconds. This is DESPITE the advanced testing methods, millions of people taking prescription heart drugs—like statins, ACE inhibitors, and aspirin—and the push for people to eat...
All kinds of things can HARM your heart health. (In fact, later this week, I will touch on two of them.) But today, we’ll talk about the opposite: A simple way to dramatically reduce your heart risk. In fact, this easy heart hack could lower your blood pressure by as many as 10 points—no drugs...
They say that laughter is the best medicine. Now I know having a good laugh certainly makes me FEEL happier and less stressed. But could a good giggle REALLY be beneficial enough to be called medicine? A study examining the effects of “laughter therapy” asked that exact question. And the surprising answer is YES… especially...
When you’re young, a broken bone means getting a cool cast that all your friends sign. When you’re a senior, it could mean a death certificate. And yet, DESPITE this so-called “healthy” diet being linked to a SOARING hip fracture risk, it keeps getting shoved down our throats. Don’t let anyone fool you: There’s nothing...
It’s a big week for vitamins. So far this week, I’ve told you about the impact that specific micronutrients have on your dementia risk and on the severity of inflammatory bowel diseases. In both cases, it’s a HUGE relief to know that drug-free approaches to such serious illnesses can have a significant impact. Well, the...
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. Some cases of dementia do have a genetic component. But the VAST majority are directly related to factors YOU control. In...
