Grow an age-defying super brain with ONE spoonful a day
It's a bum deal, right? We spend the first two-thirds of our lives accumulating knowledge, and the last third forgetting it all.
Never mind the capitol of Kentucky -- you're just trying to keep your grandkids' names straight!
Well, not me, friend. I may have racked up some miles on my odometer, but I'm still sharper than a Samurai sword. If I went on Jeopardy tomorrow, I'd be leaving with the deed to Alex Trebek's house -- and maybe even his wife.
And it's not because I'm some genetic marvel, or because I wear out pencils on crosswords and Sudokus. It's because I start each day giving my brain EXACTLY what it needs -- healthy, disease fighting fat.
That's right -- I said "healthy" and "fat" in the same sentence. And if you want to keep your noggin as nimble as mine as you age, you'd better start making the connection.
According to a new study in Neurology, starting each day with a healthy dose of omega-3-rich fish oil may be the secret to keeping a youthful, active brain, even when you're old as dirt. Researchers tested the blood of 1,000 women for omega-3s, and then performed scans of their brains eight years later. The gals who started the study with the highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood had more brain volume and had lost fewer brain cells. In fact, they seemed to halt the aging on their brains by up to two full years!
And these ladies weren't spring chickens either. The average woman in the study was 78 years old -- right around the age where you have a better chance of finding the lost city of Atlantis than your car keys some mornings.
This wasn't the first study to prove the powerful brain protection you get from just a spoonful of fish oil. Just a couple years ago I told you about a study of New York seniors that found that those with the most omega-3s in their system were less likely to develop the dangerous, brain-clogging plaques linked to Alzheimer's.
Of course, don't expect to hear Paula Deen, Sally Field or any other celebrity endorser crowing about fish oil during some 30-second Madison Avenue commercial. You see, ever since it became clear that real fish oil was an inflammation-fighting medical miracle -- and that the drug companies couldn't make a dime off of it (their own attempt at a synthetic drug version failed miserably) -- Big Pharma and the mainstream have been out to ruin it. They've sunk to everything from sham studies to lies and innuendo.
Don't trust some billion dollar drug company looking to line its pockets with your cash -- trust the science. And the science says that if you're serious about protecting all the knowledge and memories you spent a lifetime accumulating, you should start packing yourself to the gills with fish oil today.
