  1. [SCARY!] Feds sound new alarm over popular sleep drugs

    The feds are standing up and taking a bow… expecting kudos for a job well done as they’ve FINALLY taken action to help protect patients.

    They’ve slapped a frightening new warning on some of today’s most common sleep meds– drugs taken by millions, with many depending on them nightly for sleep.

    All I can say is, they don’t deserve a pat on the back.

    They should get a kick in the you-know-what instead!

    These crooks sat back and watched as their Big Pharma pals reaped billions off of these drugs, knowing about the risks all along – and they did NOTHING.

    Now, all these years later… NEARLY THREE DECADES after the first of these meds was approved… they’re finally taking “action”?

    It’s practically criminal – especially when, as you’ll see in a moment, there’s a far simpler and much safer way to get sleep tonight and every night.

    It’s backed by science… yet they REFUSE to recommend it!

    Sleep better – starting TONIGHT

    For years, there have been steady complaints of bizarre sleepwalking activity linked to the drugs.

    This isn’t just getting up and saying something you don’t remember the next day...

    And it’s not a sleepy stagger into the bathroom...

    Or downstairs to fall asleep again in front of the TV.

    People have been known to get up and leave the house… even drive their cars… all while STILL ASLEEP.

    Some of these cases have led to serious injuries, including:

    • Gunshot wounds
    • Lost limbs
    • And at least 20 deaths!

    Like I said, this ISN’T new; this has been known for ages, but the FDA is now going to require a warning label over the risk on eszopiclone (Lunesta), zaleplon (Sonata) and zolpidem (Ambien and Zolpimist, among others).

    And that’s just the IMMEDIATE risk.

    The long-term risks… which the FDA won’t even touch… are even MORE frightening, and studies have found sleep drugs can increase your risk of death by more than FIVE TIMES.

    These drugs don’t need a WARNING...

    They need to be pulled off the market– and replaced with what we KNOW can work effectively, but without any of those insane risks.

    Start with melatonin.

    The “sleep hormone” can help you get to sleep fast – and ensure you stay asleep, all night long – especially when delivered in a dissolvable form that takes effect quicker since you don’t have to wait for it to digest.

    Of course, sleep problems are often a sign of other underlying health conditions that need to be found and fixed.

    In older people, it’s often hormonal issues...

    But it could also be anything from a drug side effect to infection to a symptom of undiagnosed chronic disease.

    If you have struggles sleeping, speak to a holistic medical doctor who can help you figure out what’s really going on.

  2. STOP DEMENTIA… from the most comfortable spot in your home!

    You won’t find the BEST dementia “drug” at the pharmacy.

    But you’ve got it right now—in your own bedroom!

    In fact, it IS your bedroom

    New research reveals what just might be your first… best… and maybe ONLY chance to turn dementia around.

    And it all starts after your head hits the pillow, in a stage of sleep called “slow-wave”—aka “DEEP” sleep.

    The DEEPER the sleep, the BETTER your brain

    How deep is your sleep?

    Most people don’t know!

    Sure, you know if you didn’t get enough sleep…

    But this is different. You could get a full night of shuteye, yet still fall short in your amount of slow-wave sleep.

    See, good sleep isn’t just about the AMOUNT you get.

    It’s not even how you FEEL when you wake up.

    All of those things are important, of course, but the most critical factor of all takes place when you’re completely unaware, as your body cycles through its different phases.

    Each one has its own role—and as the new study shows, slow-wave sleep is positively CRITICAL to your brain health.

    The less you get, the higher your levels of TOXIC PROTEINS in the brain called tau and beta-amyloid, which can lead to cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

    The study doesn’t show entirely WHY the risk is there, but it’s likely due to your brain’s natural detox process, which sweeps out toxins during slow-wave sleep.

    If you miss out on deep sleep, that process gets cut short and you end up with more than just cobwebs upstairs. You suffer damage in the form of beta-amyloid proteins and tau.

    Ready for some good news? This is all within your control!

    3 ways to a DEEPER SLEEP

    • GABA: A 2016 study found 100mg of gamma-aminobutyric acid (as it’s more formally known) helped folks to fall asleep quicker and get more slow-wave sleep.
    • Fiber: Eating more fiber can trigger longer and better slow-wave sleep. Avoid grains – even whole grains – and get it from fruit and vegetables.
    • Don’t drink at night: Booze can cause you to fall into slow-wave sleep quicker, but it also leads to more disruptions later and less deep sleep overall. If you must drink, do so only moderately… never daily… and earlier in the evening.
