    Put the brakes on your AGING BRAIN! (Here’s how)

    Extra pounds around your waist do more than increase your weight – they can also increase your risk of major health problems.

    By now, you already know excessive weight has been associated with major conditions like:

    • Heart disease
    • Stroke
    • Diabetes
    • Cancer
    • Depression

    Now, a new study sheds light on another health issue caused by extra fat around the waist—and it’s one of the SCARIEST diseases older folks can face!

    Belly fat’s SCARY new threat

    Beer belly… cookie pouch… spare tire…

    Not matter what you call it, according to a new study, the bigger the waist – the larger the risk of dementia.

    Previous studies have found a connection between obesity and dementia, but new research has found stomach fat is particularly risky.

    For the study, researchers recruited and followed 870,000 people for 6.5 years. During that period, around 13 percent of participants were diagnosed with dementia.

    Regardless of the participants’ weight, scientists found men with waists bigger than 35.5 inches, and women with larger waists than 33.5 inches had a higher risk of dementia.

    Unlike previous studies, researchers concluded waist circumference is actually a BETTER indicator of fat than your weight!

    And in seniors – who have lost muscle mass, but stayed the same weight – this is especially true...

    See, the fat around your waist is called abdominal visceral fat – which sits between your organs, and has been linked to a variety of health problems.

    Fortunately, there are simple tricks you can try to lose that belly bulge:

    1. Try the Paleo diet: By ditching processed foods, excess sugar, and chemical-ridden foods, you’ll lose weight without even thinking about it. This satiating diet encourages you to eat just like our ancestors did, with foods including: lean meats, fish, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and fruit.

    2. Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day: Having a consistent exercise routine will provide health benefits that go far beyond protecting your brain. It doesn’t mean you need to “pump iron” at a gym; low-impact activities like swimming, biking, walking, or dancing work just fine. The best exercise plan is simply the one you will stick with!

  2. SENIORS: Is THIS nighttime problem WRECKING your brain?!

    SENIORS: Is THIS nighttime problem WRECKING your brain?!

    “I’m just closing my eyes.”

    Everyone’s famous last words before crashing into a deep sleep – only to wake up hours later wondering what day it is.

    Getting an afternoon nap in after an exhausting day may sound like a dream…

    But if you have consistent daytime tiredness, it is a good sign you’re not sleeping well at night.

    I’ll show you why that’s a BIG problem.

    Then, I’ll show you how to FIX IT!

    How “bad sleep” INCREASES your stroke risk

    New research reveals a frightening connection between sleep and your stroke risk…

    You see, in a new study published in the journal Neurology, 31,750 participants were given sleep questionnaires and followed for 6.2 years.

    Researchers saw that 23.9 percent of participants slept for an average of 9 hours each night, and 7.9 percent took long midday naps – which spells trouble with a capital “T.”

    Results showed that sleeping more than 9 hours a day or taking midday naps could increase your stroke risk by nearly 25 percent!

    Not to mention:

    • Those with poor sleep quality had a 29 percent higher risk of stroke;
    • Participants who were longer nappers and long sleepers were a shocking 85 percent more likely to have a stroke;
    • Those who were long sleepers and had poor quality sleep had an 82 percent increased stroke risk; and
    • Participants who went from being moderate sleepers to longer sleepers boosted their stroke risk by 44 percent.

    See, too much sleep has been linked to brain lesions – known as white matter hyperintensities. These lesions raise your risk of cognitive decline, dementia, and stroke.

    So what can you do?

    First, aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night. Try to stay on a routine bedtime and wakeup schedule.

    And second, don’t hesitate to speak with your doctor. If you’re having trouble sleeping, he may recommend a sleep diary to monitor your cycle, among other tests and therapies.
