There’s a surprising way to get an edge against aging where it matters most: right inside your brain.
The latest research reveals a way to:
- SLOW aging…
- STOP damage…
- And BLOCK a key factor for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
In many ways, it’s the most powerful therapy around– stronger than any drug, and more essential than any vitamin or supplement.
And it won’t cost you a single cent!
You might think this is the part where I hit you with “the catch,” where it turns out this is something that’s difficult or even impossible to do.
But it’s not.
It’s just about the easiest thing in the world.
In many ways, you were born to do this…
Save your brain with ONE easy routine
OK, that says “routine,” but it’s not what you’re thinking…
It’s not an exercise routine or anything like that.
I told you this would be easy… and I meant it.
Because this brain-saving routine is NOTHING MORE than keeping engaged with your friends and loved ones.
See – you can do that, right?
Docs will sell you drugs, give you advice and urge you to change your diet.
But when it comes to SAVING your BRAIN from the damage that leads to dementia, the new study finds the best plan of attack is a whole lot simpler than any of that.
More than 200 older men and women – some of them pushing 90 – had scans to check the brain, and answered questions about their social habits and engagement levels.
They were all mostly healthy… on the outside.
On the inside, though, there were stunning differences already forming:
- Folks with the HIGHEST levels of social engagement had the LOWEST levels of beta amyloid in the brain.
That’s the damaged protein linked closely to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
- Conversely, the folks with the LOWEST levels of social engagement had the HIGHEST levels of that protein. And over the next three years, these folks suffered the steepest levels of cognitive decline.
They didn’t develop Alzheimer’s… yet… but they were clearly headed in the wrong direction.
It’s sometimes easy as you grow older to shut off (and even shut out) the rest of the world, especially as friends and loved ones retire, move or pass away.
But don’t let any of that stop you from getting out and keeping engaged with friends, loved ones and more.
And if you’re struggling to keep your social connections alive, look to ways to find new ones with activities like:
- Social clubs
- Senior centers
- Or wherever your interests lie!
Sometimes, it’s just a matter of going to the diner for a cup of coffee, or getting out and doing your own errands when you can—as even those daily interactions with strangers matter.
As the new study shows, those human connections you make each day aren’t just important for your social life… they can be essential to your brain health, too.
