What’s the most embarrassing health problem you can think of?
For most folks, it’s not a sex problem, a weird rash, or even something like incontinence.
At least most folks seek help for those conditions these days.
No, the thing that very few patients want to talk about…the biggest source of their “secret shame”…is depression.
For some reason, older folks — especially men — refuse to admit when they’re down in the dumps; and because they won’t talk about it, they’ll never get help.
Well, my friend, if you’re one of them, it’s time to get some help and get it fast — because the latest research shows how a battle with the blues can do so much more than ruin your mood.
It can absolutely wreck your brain and set the stage of Alzheimer’s disease!
The more depressed you are, the more damage you suffer upstairs. As a result, the study finds a deep, dark case of serious case of depression can almost DOUBLE your risk of dementia in the coming years.
And the biggest risk of all goes to folks whose depression is like the Obama administration: It just keeps getting worse.
Don’t waste your time on antidepressants. Most of them don’t work…or don’t work well…and come with big risks. And this newest study finds they don’t do a thing to reduce your risk of Alzheimer’s.
Depressed folks on meds suffered dementia at the same rate as everyone else, which means those drugs are EXTRA useless!
The researchers say they’re not sure which one’s causing the other. Is depression the first warning sign of the onset of dementia? Or does depression and its brain-wrecking inflammation set the stage for dementia?
I say it may not even matter, because I’ve got a delicious way for you to approach the battle from BOTH frontlines.
That’s right, my friend, BEEF is the answer!
The smell of a steak on the grill alone is a mood-booster, but there’s more to it than that. Beef is also loaded with the brain-friendly nutrients that can fight depression AND dementia at the same time: vitamin B12, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids.
But that’s only if you get the RIGHT stuff. Grain-fed supermarket cuts won’t have anything close to what you need, but grass-fed beef has a milligram of zinc in every ounce. It’s also higher in B12 and omega-3s (and I’ll have more on that this weekend).
Just to make sure you get everything last bit of nutrients that you need, take some supplements along with your steak — and if that still doesn’t do the trick, seek the advice of a naturopathic physician, who can check you for other possible problems such as hormonal issues.
Now go and get mooooooving… you’ve got a brain to save!
