Micronutrients Put a BIG Dent in Dementia Risk
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 fact, by boosting a few vital micronutrients, you could put a BIG dent in your risk…
While a long list of lifestyle changes can chip away at your dementia risk, the one I want to focus on today is nutrition.
Because while we would prefer one magic bullet solution, the way to beat this killer condition is one impactful step at a time.
And nutrition is one of the MOST significant you can make.
Because the nutrients from the food you eat do FAR more than simply give you energy, support your muscles, and prevent starvation.
They power every single bodily function—including your brain.
And four critical nutrients can reduce your risk of cognitive decline.
We’ll start with one you might not be familiar with… citicoline. It’s the supplement form of a compound that your brain already produces. And you’ll find it in liver and other organ meats.
In people with signs of dementia or a diagnosis, supplementing with citicoline can slow or potentially even prevent further cognitive decline.
And when you’re already in this boat, those results are nothing short of INCREDIBLE.
Supplementing with citicoline also improves overall and episodic memory.
Up next is trusty old vitamin D.
Vitamin D receptors are located in neurons and cells throughout the brain. Studies consistently show that a deficiency in this vital vitamin affects cognitive function.
In particular, vitamin D deficiency has been tied to a decline in executive function and processing speed. It has also been directly linked to increased dementia risk.
Another critical nutrient for your brain is FAT.
When you think about it, it’s really no wonder that dementia cases are skyrocketing. Mainstream medicine has convinced the population to avoid the very thing that your brain (and BODY) needs to function properly.
Yet the research consistently shows that low omega-3 fatty acids or not eating enough fatty fish is tied to higher dementia risk.
On the other hand, simply increasing your fish intake can reduce your risk by as much as 50 percent.
Lastly, resveratrol is a good nutrient to add to your routine. Research confirms it can improve cognition and verbal memory.
Vascular dementia, in particular, is caused by decreased blood flow to the brain. Resveratrol can cross the blood-brain barrier, promoting INCREASED circulation to the brain.
I’m all about RESULTS.
And while these brain-protective nutrients aren’t a magic-bullet solution, they have been PROVEN effective. And that’s what really matters.
