  1. This Superfood REVERSES Aging

    If you love mushrooms, you’ve got lots of company. After all, mushrooms taste good… and they’re great for perking up a pizza or sassing up your salad.
    But mushrooms have also treated more patients for disease than you might believe.
    And the reason is simple – mushrooms learn to survive in some pretty tough environments.
    That means they develop specific nutrients that can fight bacteria, viruses, toxins, and even cancer.
    So when we eat mushrooms, we get the benefits of those nutrients.
    In fact, mushrooms may be one of the greatest anti-aging superfoods on the planet.
    But here’s the trick – you need to make sure you’re getting the right kinds.
    Two of the most powerful nutrients in mushrooms have been studied extensively: ergothioneine and glutathione.
    Ergothioneine was discovered over a century ago. But it was ignored until recent studies showed that it acts as a powerful antioxidant in our bodies.
    That means it hunts down and neutralizes the free radicals that trigger early aging and disease.
    Glutathione is better known as a master antioxidant. It’s been shown to lower your risk of everything from cancer to Alzheimer’s.
    And the best source of these powerful nutrients? Mushrooms.
    A research paper, published by the Penn State Center for Plant and Mushroom Products for the health journal, Food Chemistry, described the benefits of mushrooms. Researchers found that white button mushrooms – like the ones you can find in your local grocery store – contain low levels of the two antioxidants, but they’re still higher than those found in most other foods.
    The best mushrooms for antioxidant power are Chaga, Cordyceps, Lion’s Mane, Reishi, Maitake, Turkey Tail, and Shiitake. These mushrooms used to be hard to find, but now most grocery stores carry them.
    Portabella mushrooms (which are common) have about the same ergothioneine and glutathione as white button mushrooms.
    And along with adding mushrooms to your diet, you can super-charge your anti-aging program with these other great tips:
    The Super Antioxidant and Anti-Aging Program:
    • Get 1000-3000 IU of vitamin D every day. Especially in winter, you need to supplement every day.
    • Exercise. Getting enough exercise not only boosts your anti-aging program, but if you do it outside, you get more sunshine – and that helps your body produce its own vitamin D.
    • Eat your way to health. Along with mushrooms, eat lots of veggies and fruits – the more colorful the better.
    • Take anti-aging nutrients. Alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, and astaxanthin are powerful antioxidants and anti-aging nutrients.
    • Keep your blood sugar under control. One of the other reasons we age fast is because of out-of-control blood sugar. Use the mineral chromium and the herbal extract berberine to help keep your blood sugar under control.
    • Make sure you have enough nutrients to support your whole body. This usually means taking a multivitamin to make up for the nutrients you’re not getting.

  2. How to Get a "Super Senior" Brain (It's EASY)

    We all know people who seem to defy aging.

    No matter how old they get, their brains stay sharp as a pin.

    Well these "super senior" brains don't just SEEM different... they ARE different.

    New research has just uncovered some key differences in brains that seem to stay
    "eternally young."

    And here's the REALLY good news – there are some steps you can take right now to get
    a "super senior" brain for yourself.

    About 5% of older brains look different when they are scanned.

    In fact, they don't look like older brains at all.

    The brains of these lucky few look like the brains of someone decades younger – and
    the owners of those brains show no fading of intelligence, memory, or cognitive
    function that are so common among their peers.

    Dr. Emily Rogalski, who leads the Super Aging study at Chicago's Northwestern
    University, found that super-ager's brains aren't shrinking as fast as the brains of
    their peers.

    The scientists in the study gave over 1,000 older people a series of tests and only
    about 5% of them passed.

    What did the test look like? The researchers listed 15 unrelated words, then asked
    the participants to recall as many as they could half an hour later. Here's what
    they found:

    The 50-year-olds in the study could remember at least nine of those words.

    The 80-year-olds could remember about five words

    Some of the super-agers remembered all of them.

    What made those super-agers super? It wasn't college or their IQs...

    Deep in their brains, the study scans showed, the cortex (the outer layer of the
    brain) was thicker.

    While you can credit genetics, or a whole host of other factors, the fact of the
    matter is that you can adjust your brain power by keeping your brain healthier (and
    your cortex thicker).

    Let's show you how.

    Keys to a Healthy Brain

    Eat a diet high in vegetables and good proteins.

    Avoid processed foods and foods that are high in sugar and vegetable oils. These
    increase inflammation in the body – and that's deadly to your brain.

    Keep your blood sugar under control. Blood sugar and brain health are closely tied.
    If you need help controlling blood sugar, look to supplements that contain chromium
    and berberine.

    Eat good fats. The very best fat you can put in your body are the omega-3 Fatty
    Acids (fish oil). Not only does your brain need these oils to build a healthy brain,
    but fish oils also help to tamp down runaway inflammation.

    Exercise. There is not a single thing that is better for your brain than exercise.
    Get out and move your body every day.

  3. Do These 3 Things RIGHT NOW to Keep Dementia Away

    For generations, the odds of getting dementia -- or hopefully, avoiding it – pretty much came down to luck. Essentially, you would get older and hope that most of your cognitive abilities remained intact. But no more. These days, researchers have learned that avoiding dementia is possible, and more importantly, relatively easy. The three keys to avoiding dementia include these...
