brain shrink

  1. Take a year and a half of aging OFF your brain

    It’s like a bucket with a hole it in, slowly leaking water until there’s nothing left.  

    Except it’s not a bucket…  

    It’s your BRAIN 

    It’s true: Your brain’s got a leak. You’re losing gray matter, right now, at this very moment.  

    The older you get, the more you lose—roughly 0.2 percent of volume per year. That’s all your precious memories, drip-drip-dripping right out that hole in the old brain bucket.  

    And that’s only the beginning.  

    Some brains shrink even faster – and that’s when you end up with cognitive decline, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.  

    But there’s a way to fight back.  

    You can STOP your brain cells from melting off and SLOW the shrink that comes with age.  

    And new research shows how…  

    The simple secret to a bigger brain  

    Next time you have one of those frustrating “senior moments” – whether it’s a name stuck on the “tip of your tongue,” or a struggle to remember some little detail – blame your leaking brain cells. 

    That info’s just not there anymore!   

    But you don’t have to sit back and let it happen – because the new study reveals a way to drastically slow that shrink.  

    And if you do it right, you can…  

    Slow aging inside your brain 

    The new study finds you can: 

    See, ANY degree of light physical activity – including just 7,500 steps per day walking – will slow brain shrink…  

    Folks who move regularly have 0.29 percent more brain volume than folks who don’t. 

    That’s almost a year and half of aging… wiped out! 

    On top of that, every extra hour of activity per week will slow the brain shrink of aging by the equivalent of another 1.1 years.  

    Again, you don't have to strain yourself. In fact, it’s better if you don’t: The same study finds that people who do MORE exertion actually get LESS of a benefit.   

    Want more protection? Of course you do.  

    All of these steps have PROVEN to slow brain shrink:  

  2. Brain shrink linked to death risk

    This test reveals how much longer you have

    If you could see your own brain, you just might get a glimpse into your future.

    It's like having a crystal ball that's with you wherever you go!

    Your brain is often the first part of the body to suffer from the oxidative stress of aging, and it can show wear and tear long before any other area.

    And new research shows that if you can keep your brain "younger" than the rest of your body, you could live a longer... healthier... and better life.

    The only problem is the obvious one: There hasn't really been a way to check in on it and measure just what it means for your risk.

    There hasn't been, that is... until now.

    The new study used a simple MRI test to detect subtle changes in brain volume over time. These scans can tell if your brain is shrinking and how much you've lost over the years.

    The more gray and white matter you lose, the "older" your brain is -- and that "brain age" could be different from the number of candles on your birthday cake.

    Know someone who's whip-sharp despite being in his 90s? That's an old person with a YOUNG brain, most likely with less shrinkage and more volume on the inside.

    The reverse is also true: Someone in his 50s or 60s battling through brain fog and memory problems might be relatively young on the outside, but getting much older on the inside.

    That's a link we've already known about. But the new study goes further, showing how brain volume isn't just a risk factor for cognitive problems.

    It's a risk factor for DEATH.

    Every year "older" your brain is from the rest of your body increases your risk of death before the age of 80 by 6 percent. In other words, a 74-year-old with a 77-year-old brain is nearly 20 percent more likely to die before 80 than someone with a younger brain.

    The researchers say that in the near future, a doc can order up an MRI and let you know how old your brain is -- but you don't need to wait for the "near future."

    You can get clued in right now.

    Folks in the new study with older brains also had weaker grip strength, less capacity in the lungs, and slower walking speeds -- all warning signs of health risks in older folks.

    And, of course, those frustrating "senior moments" can also be a signal of brain shrink.

    Don't worry, it's not too late to take action to slow the shrink and save your life. Switch to a Mediterranean diet, which is proven to slow "brain shrink" by up to a third.

    If you've been looking for an excuse to finally give this lifestyle a shot, there you have it: a longer life. There's no better reason than that!

  3. Brain shrink linked to poor cognition

    Brain shrink happens to nearly every senior, but new research finds that slowing the shrink can lead to a sharper mind.
  4. Reverse ‘brain shrink’ with fish oil

    The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil can slow the brain shrink that comes with age – and maybe even slow cognitive decline along with it.
