Being able to prevent Alzheimer’s disease before its devastating symptoms strike would be an incredible breakthrough. But to detect and reverse it would be a true a miracle.
Today I want to share a monumental discovery that brings us one giant leap closer to doing all that and more.
There are so many factors at play in neurodegenerative disease. I’ve written about many of them before—and showed you why improving your blood sugar, soothing chronic inflammation, and boosting microcirculation can all help strengthen your brain and reverse memory loss.
Now, neuroscientists have made a groundbreaking discovery in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease that shocked the mainstream—but it’s no surprise to me. And it could change the lives of millions of people suffering from memory loss.
It all starts with your body’s “anti-aging antioxidant,” called glutathione. Using specialized imaging technology, researchers measured glutathione levels in the brains of healthy people and compared them to the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment.
The difference was crystal clear: Less glutathione = More memory problems.
Glutathione: A biomarker for Alzheimer’s disease
What this discovery means is that we could finally have a way to prevent, detect—and, yes—even reverse the most dreaded disease of aging, simply by increasing levels of glutathione.
You should know that glutathione levels decline with age—which is all the more reason why this research can’t be ignored. Imagine how much the world of medicine would change if taking a regular, hefty dose of glutathione was all it took to free yourself from Alzheimer’s!
And if you take a look at what glutathione actually does in the brain, it makes perfect sense that your body’s “anti-aging antioxidant” could actually make your brain younger. And running low on it could make your brain older…and diseased.
A “deep cleaning” for your brain
Every night while you sleep, your brain uses glutathione to scrub away leftover cellular waste. This waste is produced by your brain cells all day long as they do their jobs—drink up glucose, “breathe in” oxygen, help you think quickly, stay focused, get things done, and recall information that’s stored in your memory.
But there’s also another kind of waste that could be circling around in between your neurons. I’m talking about any toxins that manage to seep through your blood-brain-barrier and make their way into your brain. Glutathione is a powerful detoxifier for removing environmental toxins, chemical residues, and prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
Now for the bad news: This “deep cleaning” can ONLY happen when you sleep. And that’s a big problem for seniors, who commonly battle a lack of sleep and dwindling glutathione levels. It sets you up for a dangerous double-threat to your brain and memory.
Without a thorough “cleaning” every night, the leftover toxic gunk can build up over time—to gum up your mental machinery, slow down your cognition, fog your memory, and potentially spur neurodegenerative disease.
Boost glutathione to build a better brain
No doubt the mainstream will keep ignoring glutathione, to stay focused instead on plaques, tangles, and the parade of failed Alzheimer’s drugs we’ve been watching for years. But why in the world would you ignore this powerful biomarker of brain health—especially when it comes with such a simple solution?
The good news is, you don’t have to wait around for Big Pharma to figure it out. Because a brand-new innovation in nutritional science makes it possible to boost your glutathione naturally.
This Thursday, I’ll be releasing a detailed report to tell you more about glutathione and the brain. You’ll get a closer look at how this “deep cleaning” works, and discover what you can do to increase your levels of glutathione at home—something that really hasn’t been possible until now.
This is, by far, one of the most exciting discoveries I’ve seen in my entire career as a physician.
So stay tuned for my announcement on Thursday!
