Simple Trick Dramatically Slows Memory Loss
Ask a group of middle-aged people about their biggest fear, and they will almost universally say, “losing their minds.”
And I agree. The thought of my precious memories fading away is at the top of MY “no thanks” list.
But just wanting your brain to be healthy isn’t enough. You have to work at protecting it.
And here’s the thing…
You DON’T have to work as hard as you might imagine!
You don’t have to run marathons, avoid meat, and meditate all day long. You can make BIG improvements to your brain health by making a few small changes to your lifestyle.
The first thing that ought to be on your brain-preserving list is a kitchen table trick that’s often overlooked.
Eating more flavonols can help you dodge memory loss.
Flavonols are a group of over 5,000 compounds found in vegetables, fruits, teas, and wines. These potent nutrients naturally slash inflammation, promote healthy circulation, and are powerful antioxidants.
Some of the best-known flavanols include quercetin, kaempferol, and myricetin, all of which promote good health and are great for your brain.
A new study published in the journal Neurology illustrates WHY. Researchers found that the folks who eat the most flavonols dramatically slow down the aging of their brains.
You can increase the flavonols in your diet by eating more vegetables and low-sugar fruits. But don’t stop there.
There are other simple steps you can take to supercharge your brain health. I’ve included several of the most powerful in my Brain Protection Plan:
- Creatine is an amino acid that’s good for the brain and helps support energy production. Studies show creatine improves cognition, communication, self-care, personality, and behavior.
- Omega 3 fish oil is an essential fatty acid your brain needs to function. Plus, it protects against damaging oxidation. Higher omega-3 levels are linked to a larger hippocampus, which plays a major role in learning and memory. Eating more omega-3s is associated with better abstract reasoning.
- CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant and helps provide energy throughout the body. Animal research has found the compound may improve cognitive performance in seniors.
- Antioxidants can prevent oxidative stress from damaging your brain cells. And research has found they can slow memory loss. Vitamins such as vitamins A and C are natural antioxidants. But I especially like the phytonutrients (such as polyphenols and carotenes) found in superfood supplement combinations.
- Herbs like curcumin and bacopa help reduce inflammation and fight free radicals.
Stop WISHING for better brain health and MAKE it happen instead by adding these brain-supporting nutrients to your regular routine.

Our healthcare system has a fatal flaw. It’s set up to react to illness, NOT prevent it. So, doctors are stuck in a losing game of whack-a-mole. They spend all their energy and time scrambling to knock down symptoms. That means prescriptions for preventative care are virtually nonexistent. And that’s certainly the case with memory...
I was in a small grocery store in the mountains recently, and noticed that they had bone broth for sale. I thought, “Wow, we’ve come a long way!” And that’s a good thing. Here’s why… Bone broth used to be nearly impossible to find in modern-day grocery stores. But to eke out as much nutritional...

You have five primary senses: sight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell. (The sixth one doesn’t count. Only your Aunt Mable claims that one.) But you’ve likely noticed that only your sight and hearing get tested when you visit the doctor. Your senses of taste, touch, and smell are almost entirely ignored. And ignoring one of...
People often ask me what’s the WORST thing for their health. Cigarettes, alcohol, and illegal drugs often pop to mind. But everyone KNOWS those things are bad. But there’s in fact, a popular “harmless” daily habit that has HUGE health consequences. And it can be every bit as bad as a cigarette or booze habit....

The science of aging is growing at breakneck speed. It seems like hardly a week passes when we don’t learn something new. And now, one study in particular could upend everything we THINK we know about aging. Most importantly, it could unlock a way to “SLOW” it down…. And, incredibly, it may even help extend...

Folks with psoriasis never get a break. It’s not just the dry air in the winter that can cause painful flare-ups. The hot air in the summer can trigger them too. Then, despite the heat, you’re forced to wear more clothes to hide the embarrassing rash. But you may not have to suffer any longer....
