Something fishy about life extension
Your own doc will swear up and down there's nothing you can do about cognitive impairment... that age alone means your brain is starting to lose it... and that you're on the slow path to the three Ds: decline, dementia and death.
Well, trust me when I tell you he's flat-out wrong.
Maybe there's nothing HE can do about it, but there is something YOU can do -- because despite his grim predictions, you CAN slow, stop and even reverse cognitive impairment, cognitive decline and even dementia and extend your life.
And if you're in the earliest stages of mild cognitive impairment, new research shows the one action you need to take right now that can slow it down: Take some fish oil.
The omega-3 fatty acid DHA found in fish oil can stop aging on a cellular level -- protecting you from both the ravages of cognitive decline and maybe even death itself.
The secret is in what's called the telomeres, or the little caps on the end of your DNA strands. They're like sands in the hourglass -- because the older you get, the shorter they get.
And the shorter they get, the less time you've got left.
When they get too short, disease such as dementia and even death aren't far behind -- but the study of 33 patients with mild cognitive impairment finds that DHA can slow the telomere shrink, perhaps preventing the decline from turning into dementia and saving your life at the same time.
Now, I've seen the mainstream know-it-alls dismiss this as one small study. But the fact is, fish oil has been shown to slow telomere shrink before -- and in one major study last year, omega-3 fatty acids were shown to actually help them get LONGER.
My advice: Take some fish oil.
But if you want to extend your telomeres -- and extend your life -- don't stop there.
I had the four simple, safe and inexpensive nutrients proven to slow telomere shrink in the January 2013 edition of my Douglass Report newsletter.
