Slash dementia risk with this powerful secret

Too late to save your brain?

That's what mainstream doctors claim. If your mind is starting to slip, most docs will shrug and tell you to enjoy what you've got while it lasts.

But that's not what I'm going to tell you.

I'm here today with the news your brain has been waiting for, as new research reveals one easy way to slash your dementia risk... preserve your memory... and save your brain.

And you can do it RIGHT NOW -- even if you're a little older and already starting to feel the toll of cognitive struggles.

The key to protecting your brain doesn't begin inside the brain itself.

It starts by working on something a lot easier to see and feel, letting you know right away when you're getting the results you're looking for without an expensive or time-consuming brain scan.

It starts in your muscles. If you keep yourself Popeye levels of strong, odds are, your brain will have the power it needs to punch out dementia risk.

But if those muscles are melting away... if you're losing your strength... then your mind could be turning to mush.

The new report out of Australia explains what's been called the "obesity paradox," or studies that show that overweight and obese people who remain overweight seem to have a lower risk of cognitive problems including dementia.

Turns out, that extra fat isn't protecting you at all.

What's really going on is that people who drop body mass in their later years are often losing MUSCLE, not fat. They're getting weaker, which is a common problem in older folks, and if you start to lose some of that muscle yourself, it could have a direct effect on your brain.

It can thin out your cortex, which is essential to your memory, cognition, thought, and more. It's also where you store your language -- so, when the cortex starts to slip, you could even lose your speech.

As you lose weight -- or more specifically, as you lose MUSCLE -- that part of the brain starts to shrivel like an old prune, and you risk suffering damage to all of those functions and more.

And that, in turn, is what sets the stage for dementia and even Alzheimer's disease.

Obviously, you want to keep strong and hang onto your muscle... but that's a whole lot easier said than done.

While keeping active can certainly help your body and brain, maintaining muscle isn't always a matter of getting exercise or lifting weights.

You need a little more help, and I'll have one big piece of the puzzle coming up in a report later today.
