Simple Trick STOPS Memory Loss
Memory loss can be one of the most upsetting parts of getting older.
Maybe a name is on the tip of your tongue… but you can’t quite come up with it.
Or maybe you head to the grocery store for three items… but only come back with one.
These “senior moments” may be common during your golden years – but that doesn’t mean you have to accept them.
In fact, researchers have found a simple trick that can help lower your risk of memory loss — and it comes with some other amazing benefits as well.
The results of this new study provide the strongest link ever between memory loss and a medical condition that is entirely within you control: high blood pressure.
The study included 9,000 people averaging 68 years old who received treatment to have their systolic blood pressure lowered to either 120 or 130.
Those who achieved a systolic blood pressure of 130 had a 15% lower chance of memory loss – and the risk dropped by 19% for those who reached 120.
High blood pressure is already well known for increasing your risk of heart attack and stroke. It only makes sense that the health of your blood vessels would impact your memory as well.
High blood pressure damages your blood vessels, which impedes blood flow and restricts the delivery of nutrients everywhere in the body – including your brain.
Keep in mind, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s are NOT the same thing.
Yes, memory loss is a symptom of Alzheimer’s disease. But you do not have to have Alzheimer’s to experience memory loss.
It’s the difference between missing a monthly payment, versus having problems taking care of monthly bills in general.
Or between forgetting which word to use, versus struggling to have a conversation.
But you can stop and reverse mild cognitive impairment.
And keeping your blood pressure in a healthy range is a key way to do just that.
Of course, by getting and keeping your blood pressure in a healthy range, you’ll be doing much more than preventing memory loss.
You’ll be reducing your risk of heart attack and stroke, improving vision, boosting kidney health, and much more.
