  1. 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.

  2. 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 way to STOP the clock and SLOW the aging process

    And in one of the most important places of all.

    Deep inside your brain.

    This could be what the world has been searching for -- a way to slow the downward slide in the brain that leads to “senior moments,” cognitive decline, dementia, and more.

    Best of all, this natural remedy is EASY to find… and totally SAFE!

    Fight the memory-sapping damage of age

    Ladies, you’re especially going to love this one -- because this new study focused on YOU.

    But guys, don’t feel too left out – because there’s something in this for you, too. I’ll get to that in a moment.

    The new study focused on resveratrol, the antioxidant found in grape skins, red wine, berries and more.

    There’s a catch, though…

    NONE of those sources really have much of the stuff.

    So, while this new study tested relatively low doses – 150 mg per day, versus a placebo – they’re doses you can really only get from a supplement.

    But oh, what a difference those little capsules can make!

    One year later, the women who were taking resveratrol showed 2 key improvements:

    1. BETTER overall cognitive performance
    2. LESS decline in cerebrovascular responsiveness (CVR) to cognitive stimuli.

    That second one measures the amount of blood flowing to certain areas of the brain that get “turned on” while performing some kind of task. It’s been emerging as an important early indicator of cognitive decline.

    Post-menopausal women in particular are in the crosshairs for cerebrovascular dysfunction…

    And loss of cerebrovascular function has been linked specifically to vascular dementia.

    The researchers behind the study say their findings confirm their earlier work…

    That even LOW doses of resveratrol can improve CVR… and preserve overall cognitive function.

    Remember what I said earlier about guys?

    Those earlier studies found resveratrol works in men, too!

    But I’ve also seen ways to make this even BETTER.

    There’s a natural compound called pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ), which I’ve shared with you before right here.

    It can improve blood flow into key regions of the brain

    And that resveratrol I just mentioned? It seems to help PQQ work even better, especially when you throw some quercetin – another memory-enhancing compound – into the mix.

    The research on this combo is early… but promising enough that some companies are already selling them together in brain-boosting formulas.

    Of course, you can always buy them separately.
