Try THIS 2-Second Alzheimer’s Test
Talk to your mainstream doc about your Alzheimer’s risk and they’ll say something like:
“You’re going to get Alzheimer’s or you’re not. Nothing you can do about it.”
Well, I’m here to tell you that’s nonsense.
Because there are many ways to lower your risk of Alzheimer’s.
In fact, I’m going to show you a dead simple way to determine whether you might be at high risk for memory problems.
And it only takes two seconds and it won’t cost you a thing.
Take a look down at your belly.
If you’re seeing more fat there than you would like to… you may be putting yourself on the fast track to Alzheimer’s.
You see, body fat secretes all sorts of chemicals that are bad for your health.
And fats secrete different chemicals based on where they’re located in our bodies.
New research shows that belly fat is by far the most dangerous.
In a new study, researchers from Brock University in Ontario looked at the effects of obesity on the hippocampus — the part of your brain responsible for learning and memory.
At the end of the study, the scientists found that carrying extra weight — especially belly fat — can significantly increase inflammation in your hippocampus!
And it’s this type of damage that can lead to Alzheimer’s and other memory issues.
That’s why it’s so important to maintain a healthy weight and reduce belly fat, especially as you get older.
I’m going to give you tips on how to do that today.
Dr. Scott’s Weight Loss and Alzheimer’s Prevention:
- Start with blood sugar control: belly fat is a sign of poor blood sugar control. You can get to better sugar control by avoiding sugars and processed foods and by supplementing with the mineral chromium and the herbal extract berberine.
- Eat mostly proteins and non-starchy veggies: this will also help to keep your blood sugar low.
- Focus on exercise that builds muscle: try working with a personal trainer to find out what you can do to build muscle, but you can also walk for exercise.
- Fish oils: are essential fatty acid that most people reading this are not getting. Make sure you supplement if you are not eating fish 2-3 times a week.
- Polyphenols: are phytonutrients found in fresh fruits and vegetables. Most people are not getting enough of these either.
- Mitochondrial support: the energy-producing cells in our body (mitochondria) need certain nutrients (CoQ10, Alpha lipoic acid, astaxanthin, selenium, Vitamin E) to keep our brains working well throughout our lives.
