[WOW] This Habit CAUSES Alzheimer’s

Having Alzheimer’s is like living in a slow nightmare.

With every passing day, you lose a little more of yourself… and your memories.

But the mainstream’s got nothing when it comes to predicting who has will get Alzheimer’s… and who doesn’t.

Until now…

Because researchers have just discovered thata common habit could put Alzheimer’s is in your future.

And spotting this early is the key to having the golden years you deserve.

I’m talking about naps.

Don’t worry, the occasional 10-minute doze on the couch won’t do you any harm.

But according to research, folks who consistently nap or experience daytime tiredness could be in grave danger.

The new study, published in the journal Sleep, looked at elderly people’s sleep habits

What the researchers discovered was excessive daytime sleepiness and napping are a key risk factor the buildup of amyloid plaques in the brain (which is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease).

Even worse? The scientists found individuals who reported excessive daytime sleepiness had 2.75 times the risk of beta amyloid buildup.  

Experts believe that poor nighttime sleep is the key driver of both daytime tiredness and the buildup of beta amyloid plaques.

So, if you can get a good night’s sleep… you can skip the naps… and SHEILD your brain from one of the main causes of Alzheimer’s.

And here’s exactly how to do that…

Dr. Scott’s Better-Sleep Program:

  • Exercise is one of the best paths to a good night’s sleep. When your body is physically tired, your mind has no choice but to give in. Find an exercise you love and increase how much you are exercising when you feel stressed.
  • Avoid caffeine in the afternoon. This means coffee, tea, chocolate, and energy drinks.
  • Sleeping alone is another option for people who are woken up by their mate. The National Sleep Foundation found that nearly 25 percent of couples sleep in separate beds.
  • Calming herbs such as hops, passionflower, lemon balm, chamomile, and valerian all help relax the body and mind.
  • Theanine is an amino acid found in green tea that helps people feel calm.
  • Melatonin is a hormone that promotes good sleep.
