Sleep

  1. The MISSING MINERAL that can stop aging!

    Aging in reverse?

    Might sound like a wild fantasy – literally impossible when it comes down to it.

    Well, friend, the impossible just became possible today... at least on a cellular level.

    The latest research reveals a way to slow one of the most important signs of aging deep inside your body – and to be clear, this isn’t just some crazy, out-there there “theory.”

    You see, this one cellular process – one that’s taking place right now, deep inside your body -- holds the power to:

    • SLOW aging
    • BLOCK disease
    • EXTEND your life

    And the “fix” is a whole lot easier than you’d ever believe as new research reveals how it all comes down to a single trace mineral.

    The SELENIUM secret to successful aging

    Telomeres are often compared to aglets.

    Those are the little caps that sit at each end of a shoelace, holding the threads together.

    In this case, those threads are your DNA and the aglets – your telomeres – are what’s keeping the whole package together.

    Each time your cells divide, the telomere cap shrinks just a touch. Eventually, there’s nothing left, and it all unwinds.

    And you don’t need to be a doctor to know what happens when your DNA unravels.

    Your LIFE unravels – and you’re left facing nearly every major deadly chronic disease: heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and more.

    Since telomeres shrink with age, these are considered “aging” problems.

    However, not everyone shrinks at the same rate...

    Exposure to toxins and poor lifestyle choices – including obesity and being sedentary – can speed the shrink.

    But there’s a flipside to that

    Just as some things can SPEED the shrink, other things can SLOW it down.

    That’s where the latest science shows so much incredible promise...

    It nails down one simple nutrient… one you can get easily every day… that can preserve your all-important telomeres: selenium.

    Every 20 micrograms(mcg) of selenium you get from diet can increase the length of telomeres by 0.42 percent.

    That may not sound like much.

    But on a cellular level… over years… that could have a MAJOR impact on your aging.

    You can find selenium in Brazil nuts, certain shellfish, salmon, sardines and some seeds including sunflowers. Good multivitamins are also starting to include selenium.

    Brazil nuts are especially rich in selenium – 70 to 90 mcg each. One or two a day is all you need to get enough of this valuable mineral.

    Along with boosting your selenium via diet and a high-quality multivitamin with minerals, there are other steps you can take to slow telomere growth and block your disease risk.

    Pretty easy, too.

    Studies show these supplements can all slow telomere shrink:

    • Fish oil: Studies show omega-3s not only slow the shrink, but they can also help your telomeres GROW in some cases.
    • Vitamin D: Folks with blood levels over 50 nmol/L have the slowest shrink rate, according to another study.
    • Ashwagandha: Research has shown this herbal therapy can boost the enzyme that protects telomeres by an impressive 45 percent.

    In addition, avoid toxins with a diet of natural food -- and spend less time on the sofa and more on your feet.

    Of course, you can’t stop aging completely.

    But you certainly can show it who’s boss!

  2. Sleep habits linked to heart and stroke risk

    5 sleep habits that could SAVE your life

    It just might be the easiest way to improve your health dramatically...

    And you don’t have to change a thing you do all day!

    This one’s all about what happens at night. Specifically, how much you sleep and how well you sleep.

    Do it right, and you could wipe out chronic disease and guarantee yourself a longer, healthier, better life.

    But do it wrong, and you could pay the ultimate price.

    Because new research reveals how sleep habits can have a direct impact on your risk of heart attack, stroke, and even death itself.

    BEAT heart problems with GOOD SLEEP

    The new study nails down the five “best” habits for good sleep:

    • Being a “morning person”
    • Sleeping 6-9 hours
    • No sign of insomnia
    • No snoring
    • No excessive daytime sleepiness

    The more of those habits you have, the lower your risk of deadly cardiovascular problems.

    And if you have ALL FIVE good habits, your perfect nights will lead to many more healthy days:

    You’ll enjoy a 35 percent lower risk of heart disease and a 34 percent lower risk of stroke.

    The study also reveals something else – something just as important.

    Some folks are born with a higher risk of these things, right? That’s just genetics at work… and if you have the genes for heart disease and stroke, poor sleep habits will bump those risks up dramatically.

    You could face up 2.5 times the risk!

    But GOOD sleep habits can undo some of that genetic risk, bringing it all back down to size.

    Now, you might think some of those good sleep habits are a little beyond your control.

    Who can stop themselves from snoring???

    But that’s not always the case.

    Snoring and excessive sleepiness, for example, are often caused by weight gain. And at the extreme end, they could be indications of sleep apnea.

    Studies show that weight loss – even losing as little and 10 pounds – can ease or eliminate apnea, snoring and daytime sleepiness.

    The rest of it’s in your control, too.

    If you struggle to sleep at night… if you can’t get six to nine hours... or if you just find yourself up late, late, late all the time… your body may just need a little help resetting for sleep.

    In some cases, it could be a sign of low levels of melatonin, the “sleep hormone” the body releases at night.

    You can boost yours in two ways:

    1. Avoid LED screens at night (put that phone away!); and
    2. Take a melatonin

    And don’t forget the power of herbal medicine...

    Chamomile and valerian have been used for centuries for sleep.

    You can find them in capsule form, but you’ll also find both at the heart of Sleepytime Extra tea, which makes for a nice way to wind down at the end of the day.
