  1. HIDDEN mineral could RESTORE lost brain function

    Some days, you can almost FEEL the brain cells short-circuiting.

    When that word is STUCK on the tip of your tongue…

    When you're standing next to your car, keys in hand, WONDERING just where in the heck you were going again…

    When you've answered the phone, recognize the voice, but just CAN'T place the name…

    Yes, friend, those li'l "brain burps" are all humbling reminders that you're NOT as young as you used to be.

    And neither is your memory.

    But new research reveals a way to potentially get that LOST cognitive capacity back.

    Because you can actually GROW fresh new brain cells to REPLACE the ones that have been dropping off…

    And all you gotta do is give your body a key mineral to help it make those cells!

    One way to grow new brain cells is with exercise. And OF COURSE you should get some daily activity.

    But the latest research reveals ANOTHER way…

    One that can MIMIC or ENHANCE the effect of exercise inside the brain… and help that crucial regeneration process along.

    It's with selenium – considered a "trace" mineral because you need very little of it.

    Yet most folks don't get even those LOW amounts… often due to factory farming, in which your food is grown in lifeless soil, DEVOID of the minerals.

    When there are no minerals in the soil… there are no minerals in the food.

    A new study on old mice looked at what happens in the brain when those "trace" levels ARE reached.

    It's as if a switch was flicked on… and EVERYTHING came back to life!

    That process of brain cell regeneration… which had been slowed by age… kicked into overdrive.

    The mice began pumping out new neurons…

    And neurons are the key to everything, as they relay information within the brain… control muscle… and more.

    The MORE neurons you have… the BETTER the brain function.

    And in the study, researchers watched as the mice got YOUNGER, cognitively speaking.

    They began to show the cognitive skills they had lost – the sweet and satisfying brainpower of youth.

    All thanks to this single mineral!

    The team repeated the study on younger mice that had a stroke and lost cognitive power as a result. And it worked on them, too.

    Again, this is a trace mineral… so don't buy a jar of selenium capsules and start eating them like Tic Tacs.

    You just need the RIGHT AMOUNT.

    The BEST source of selenium is Brazil nuts -- but I don't know anyone who eats Brazil nuts every day.

    I love nuts myself… and I can't tell you the last time I even SAW a Brazil nut. A jar of mixed nuts usually has maybe four of them.

    The EASIEST way to get selenium is with a multivitamin. Most good ones contain 100% of your daily selenium.

    If yours doesn't… shop around for a new one.

    And don't forget what I shared with you last week about how "beige fat" could also help SAVE your brain.

  2. Surgery in your future? Watch for this HIDDEN danger!

    If you STRUGGLE after surgery… you know who gets the blame, right?

    Not the hospital or the surgeon or anyone else involved in the procedure.

    Nope – they blame YOU!

    YOU were too sick… too weak… too old!

    Well, friend, new research reveals the TRUE cause for one of the worst possible outcomes after surgery – one many people would argue is worse than death itself.

    That’s the rapid cognitive decline and then dementia that often follows.

    It’s not YOUR fault… at all!

    What IS at fault is one of the most common medications used during surgery.

    But I’ve got what they don’t -- and that’s a way to bring this risk back down, even if you absolutely need to have that operation.

    The TRUE toll of anesthesia

    I’m talking about sevoflurane – a common anesthetic drug used during surgery.

    The new study finds that it essentially causes tau to leak out of neurons and into the brain’s immune cells, called microglia.

    They’re not prepared for that tau invasion… so they respond the way cells often do when they’re thrown onto the defensive.

    They CRANK OUT inflammation!

    That inflammation, in turn, then drives cognitive impairment.

    And, of course, all that tau running loose in there isn’t doing you any favors in PROTECTING you against dementia.

    Next thing you know, it’s “Animal House” in your brain.

    That helps explain why we’ve seen this link so often before…

    Like a 2014 study that found patients who have surgery with anesthesia face up to DOUBLE the dementia risk in the 3-7 years that follow.

    Yet they’ll blame YOU and YOUR AGE for those cognitive problems.

    The nerve!

    You DON’T have to put up with this or any other risk linked to sevoflurane or other anesthetics…

    Because I’ve got 3 tips for anyone about to go under the knife:

    1. SKIP the surgery: Studies find that absurd numbers of common operations – elective procedures in particular – are totally unnecessary, especially for seniors. And some of the most common ops, ranging from meniscus to spinal fusion, seem to exist to score quick cash… NOT to improve lives. So, always do some homework before any operation… and get a second opinion.
    2. STAND UP TO your anesthesiologist: These guys like to think of themselves as the REAL “Dr. Feelgood,” because their entire job is to ensure you don’t feel a thing during surgery. Some of them will give you enough juice to knock out a moose! Tell him you want the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible period… and you REALLY don’t want sevoflurane if it can be avoided.
    3. DETOX, DETOX, DETOX: If you do need surgery, realize it’s not over when they zip you up and you wake up. It’s not even over when you leave the clinic. You need to take QUICK ACTION once you’re home to detoxify and help purge your body of the damage cause by both the drugs – especially anesthesia – and the chemicals released by your own body in response to surgery.

    For that third tip I just mentioned, one option is an all-natural compound called Robuvit. In a study of hysterectomy patients, for example, this patented French oak extract helped fight oxidative stress and free radical damage.

    And this natural antioxidant has shown cognitive benefits in plenty of studies, too.

    Other than that, just eat rightsleep well… and get on your feet as soon as you’re able…

    And you’ll feel like yourself again in no time.

  3. SAVE your aging brain with this all-natural super-nutrient

    Time to take my LEAST favorite cliché… and toss it in the trash. You know it… you’ve heard it… and maybe you’ve even used it yourself. “I’m not getting any younger!” Well, friend, guess what? That’s NOT always true! Time isn’t some relentless march down a straight line from the cradle to the grave. Now, the latest research reveals a...
