Memory & Brain Support

Keeping our brains healthy and sharp is just as important as physical fitness. The NorthStar blog on memory and brain support gives you breaking news on memory, cognitive health, and how to keep your brain sharp as a tack.

  1. WIPE OUT Alzheimer’s with the brain’s ‘master antioxidant’

    It’s like a confession… and a desperate cry for help… all at once.

    We’re STUCK… and we’ve got NOTHING!

    The medical mainstream is finally admitting that NONE of their drugs do JACK for Alzheimer’s disease.

    OK, so that’s mostly stating the obvious. After all, they’ve FLUSHED billions down the drain in the name of dementia research… and still have ZIP to show for it.

    But it’s the next part that’s what’s so stunning: They now ADMIT the answer could be in THE ONE PLACE they’ve refused to look.

    They’re actually saying… out loud… for the first time… that the best way to beat dementia could be a 100% natural compound already found inside your own body.

    But who needs THEM anyway??? I’m going to show you exactly how to get it right now!

    A rare confession from the mainstream

    A series of recent reports makes the link between Alzheimer’s disease and glutathione.

    That’s the “master antioxidant” that can ELIMINATE toxins and other damage from cells… including brain cells.

    When glutathione drops… toxins accumulate. When toxins accumulate… you literally start losing your mind.

    Especially your memory and cognition.

    In one study out of India, the brains of folks with mild cognitive impairment and dementia were pretty much RUNNING ON EMPTY, as far as glutathione was concerned.

    Now, they’re just STARTING to think maybe putting it back in there is how you beat this thing.

    The catch about glutathione is that your body CAN’T easily absorb most supplements -- which means even if you pop some capsules, you won’t necessarily increase the levels in a way your body can put to work.

    But some forms of them DO work in ways your body can use, specifically:

    • liposomal
    • IV injections
    • S-acetyl glutathione.

    In addition, N-acetyl-cysteine (NAC) is a precursor that can form glutathione once inside your body.

    Now, as promising as this is, I wouldn’t put all my eggs in one basket as far as dementia’s concerned.

    There’s no single cause of it. Heck, it’s not a single disease.

    In some cases… in MANY cases… it’s NOT a disease at all.

    It’s a SIDE EFFECT!

    My FIRST suspect in a case of looming dementia would be any new or recent drugs.

    My SECOND suspect would be older drugs impacting you in new ways.

    My THIRD suspect would be the combined effect of ALL your drugs on the brain.

    Notice a pattern here?

    Work with a doc who can get you off as many of those drugs as you can -- ALL of them if it’s possible.

    At the same time, I’d do an EXTREME makeover on the diet… and I do mean extreme.

    ELIMINATE anything and everything processed… and everything with chemicals, preservatives, and coloring agents.

    Eat ONLY organic, non-GMO foods… and give yourself a GI detoxifying cleanse.

    Finally, LOAD UP on brain-enhancing nutrients like ginkgo biloba, phosphatidyl serine, high-dose intravenous vitamin C, NAC, and ALA.

  2. ‘Brain drain’ drug risk is REAL… but they’re BRAINWASHING you to ignore it!

    Me? In a CULT?!?!?

    Never woulda pegged myself as a cultist…

    But that’s what the mainstream is calling me -- just for opposing statins, because they can cause memory problems and muscle pain.

    Agree with me? Welcome to the cult!

    A new report on the MedPage Today website for medical professionals claims we’re engaged in “fear-mongering.

    Now, WHERE could we have possibly come up with such a kooky idea?

    Oh wait – there it is, right on the FDA’s website! (Feel free to look it up; cult membership optional.)

    Whether you’re in the cult or not, let me give you what they won’t…

    And that’s a much better way to handle cholesterol.

    What REALLY happens when your cholesterol levels drop

    The MedPage Today report claims there is “no evidence” of a link between statins and memory loss.

    That flies in the face of not only the FDA website…

    But also what doctors see ALL THE TIME when panicked patients call in after starting on the drugs, terrified by the frightening mental lapses.

    And it flies in the face of SCIENCE, too.

    A massive study in 2015… that involved combing through 11 MILLION medical records… found there absolutely IS a link between statins and memory loss.

    In fact, folks who start on cholesterol drugs are 4X more likely to report memory loss compared to folks who don’t.

    All this name-calling is just a distraction, anyway.

    The memory stuff is hardly the WORST of the side effects of these drugs, which have also been linked to:

    • diabetes
    • muscle pain
    • CoQ10 deficiency
    • sex problems
    • …and MORE

    And even THAT’S not the worst of it. Because let’s face it, the biggest issue here is…

    Statins DON’T work!

    I mean, sure they “work” in that they cut cholesterol. But they DON’T deliver the longer, better, healthier life you’ve been promised.

    In fact, most people who have heart attacks DON’T have high cholesterol. They have NORMAL cholesterol.

    Studies even show that people with low-cholesterol diets have a HIGHER risk of death.

    And that, my friend, is why I don’t obsess over cholesterol levels.

    But if you DO need help bringing your LDL and triglycerides down, you’ve got much better ways to get control -- WITHOUT having to deal with the mind-melting side effects.

    Some of my faves include:

    • red yeast rice
    • niacin
    • policosanol, and
    • fish oil.

    And remember: Cholesterol in the diet doesn’t necessarily become high levels of cholesterol in the blood.

    So, don’t shy away from your favorite foods, such as eggs and cheese.

  18. Boost Your Brain: How to Improve Your Multitasking Skills

    skills multitaskingHow often do you wish your multitasking skills were sharper?

    When you realize you haven’t finished any of the three projects you’ve been working on all afternoon?

    When you realize that nothing you’ve accomplished has been done to the best of your ability?

  20. The Alzheimer’s Diet: Can You Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease With Food?

    Diet for Alzheimer’s You may have heard about the so-called Alzheimer’s Diet – a new diet that claims it helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease. But before you get excited, you want the facts. After all, the Alzheimer’s Association itself called the disease “…the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.”
