  1. Erase fatigue FOREVER with this 7-nutrient checklist

    If you’re feeling tired all the time, let me tell you… you’re NOT alone.  

    Chronic fatigue is practically an EPIDEMIC in America today.  

    I have patients literally falling asleep in my waiting room chairs.  

    And they shuffle to the exam room with all of the energy of a sloth on tranquilizers.  

    These folks are REALLY suffering – and here’s what I tell them.  

    Fatigue is a classic sign that your body is missing something that it needs.  

    Here are seven nutrients you should be tested for – and should add to your diet.  

    Correcting these nutritional deficiencies can be the secret to ERASING fatigue and giving you a burst of energy you never thought possible.  

    ***** 

    Studies show most of us don’t get enough basic nutrients – and that can take a BIG toll on your energy levels.  

    Here are the main nutrients you may be deficient in when you are feeling tired:  

    • Iron: You need iron to make hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout your body. Low iron leads to fatigue because you are not getting enough oxygen to make energy. If you are male or postmenopausal, you need to have your blood levels checked before you supplement.  
    • vitamins: Vitamins B12 and other B vitamins are necessary for basic energy production throughout the body. B vitamins feed mitochondria – the energy producing part of every cell. 
    • Magnesium and potassium: Low magnesium contributes to fatigue and it’s a very common deficiency. Magnesium and potassium both play roles in muscle function and energy production.  
    • Vitamin D: Low levels of vitamin D are strongly linked to fatigue. This lack of vitamin D is one of the reasons scientists think we feel more tired during winter. Our bodies produce vitamin D when sunshine hits our skin. You especially need vitamin D if you live in northern climates, don’t get out in the sun much, its winter, or if you have diseases that increase diarrhea.  
    • Omega-3: These essential fatty acids are vital for good mood and cognitive ability. Without these crucial fats, you feel tired and unmotivated.  
    • Protein: Good quality proteins are needed in the manufacture of many hormones, including brain neurotransmitters.  

    Some of these nutrients are easy enough to add to your diet through foods or supplements – and some require testing first.  

    But addressing these nutritional deficiencies is the first step to winning the battle against fatigue… for good.  

  2. How to build a “super brain”… in 6 EASY steps 

    I don’t need to tell you that our brains are under ASSAULT.  

    Depression rates are skyrocketing… and people are starting to develop dementia in their 40s! 

    This was UNHEARD OF only a generation ago.  

    Everything from the processed foods we eat to the dangerous drugs we take can slowly destroy our brains.  

    Now, it’s time to fight back.  

    Because there are six “power nutrients” that can help protect your brain from damage.  

    And they can help keep your brain sharp and humming along for the rest of your life.  

    ***** 

    Lots of doctors used to think there wasn’t much you could do to protect your brain.  

    It all came down to luck and genetics – you were either going to have brain problems, or you weren’t.  

    Now we know that we have a lot more control over our brain health.  

    Here are six supplements that are proven to keep you sharp and act like “armor” for your brain: 

    1. Omega-3s: I can’t say enough about the omega-3 fatty acids EPA/DHA. These necessary fats are one of the biggest deficiencies in the modern world – almost completely missing from our diets. Studies have shown omega-3 fatty acids are good for your heart, immune system, brain, and blood vessels. EPA/DHA also help with mood and reasoning abilities.  
    1. vitamins: Want to guarantee you feel depressed? Make sure you avoid the B vitamins. B vitamins help with depression, but also dementia, and poor thinking. B vitamins can be found in beef liver, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products. Make sure you are getting enough B12, B6, folate, and biotin.  
    1. Curcumin: This is the main bioactive compound found in the spice turmeric. Curcumin protects your brain in several ways. It increases levels of dopamine and serotonin (in fact, it works as a great antidepressant). It also increases blood flow to the brain. Most importantly, curcumin acts as a powerful antioxidant and brain protectant.  
    1. Ginkgo biloba: The most popular herb in the world is ginkgo. It is so effective as a medicine, that it is used as a prescription in Europe. Gingko improves memory and cognitive functions by improving small blood flow (called microcirculation). It has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety and improve short-term memory.  
    1. Zinc: This mineral is a big part of your immune system, but it also has a huge impact on mental health. Studies have shown zinc helps with mood disorders, depression, and anxiety. You can find zinc in red meat, poultry, beans, and whole grains.  
    1. CoQ10: This nutrient helps support the mitochondria, the energy centers of our cells. And, remember, your brain needs a TON of energy. CoQ10 is also great for your heart.  

    While you can get lots of these nutrients from your diet, they’re also widely available at just about any local or online vitamin shop.
