SLOW Memory Loss by 60% with This “Age Insurance” Policy

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

If you’re like most folks, I’m guessing you have a few insurance policies.

You probably have one on your house, on your cars, as well as a policy for your health.

Well, what if you could buy an “age insurance” policy… specifically, for your memory?

A new study shows that this might be possible.

Researchers have discovered that this “age insurance” policy could SLOW memory loss by 60 percent.

I’m talking about multivitamins.

Multivitamins are designed to cover your nutritional shortfalls. They’re for those times when you don’t eat your best, or the food you eat doesn’t have all the nutrients your body needs. It’s the perfect form of “age insurance.”

But now they do something even better…

According to researchers, a multivitamin may be the missing piece of preventative care for your memory.

Sure, mainstream health gurus (and even me!) tell you to eat well, get good sleep, and exercise. And it’s true, those steps will help you prevent most diseases.

But what most experts miss is the multivitamin.

The researchers in this study looked at the brain health of 2,000 people over the age of 65. The participants were all taking part in a trial where they were required to take Centrum Silver (a multivitamin made by the drug company called GlaxoSmithKline) to see if it would reduce heart disease and cancer.

The researchers crunched the numbers around found that taking a daily multivitamin slowed cognitive decline by almost 60 percent.

That is a HUGE amount!

And here’s the thing: Centrum Silver is a pretty crappy multivitamin. Like many things drug companies make, they put the cheapest forms of vitamins they could find in the pill.

So imagine what a quality multivitamin could do!

You can do much better by choosing one from a company you trust, or by heading to any health food store and asking an employee for their recommendation.

A daily multivitamin is good protection for your brain, but you can do so much more!

Dr. Scott’s Guide to Preventing Alzheimer’s

  1. Enjoy your coffee. Coffee contains a chemical called eicosanoyl-5-hydroxytryptamide (EHT) that, in studies done on rats, has been shown to protect against Alzheimer’s disease. Other studies support the brain-health benefits of coffee.
  2. And tea too! Green tea is a rich source of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which has been shown to reduce beta-amyloid plaques and tau tangles (the causes of Alzheimer’s disease). Tea has also been shown to drop blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which is good for the brain.
  3. Get a pet. A pet encourages you to be social and get exercise and also provides comforting companionship.
  4. Get colorful. When you eat, that is. Higher vegetable consumption is associated with a slower rate of cognitive decline. That’s based on 3,718 people aged 65 years and older who participated in the Chicago Health and Aging Project. Choose foods of many different colors to maximize the benefits.
  5. Nap. Researchers at the Laboratory of Human Chronobiology at Weill Cornell Medical College in White Plains, New York, studied how 22 men and women reacted to varying napping regimens, and they found that naps of all lengths enhanced cognitive performance during the day.
  6. Get crafty. Researchers at the Mayo Clinic studied crafting activities – such as woodworking, pottery, ceramics, and quilting – and found it reduced the likelihood of Alzheimer’s by 55 percent.
