Pillow Talk: Are Your Sleep Habits DESTROYING Your Brain?!

Dear Reader,

With all the stress of COVID-19 and being separated from your loved ones, you might be losing sleep.

And that’s perfectly understandable. After all, everyone has a sleepless night or two.

But when you can’t remember the last time you REALLY felt rested, or you find yourself so tired you drift off during the day, you could have a BIG problem.

Because researchers have discovered that = sleep isn’t just tied to your mood…

Your zzz’s could be WREAKING HAVOC on your brain.

Especially if you’re a senior.

But don’t worry. I’m going to tell you EXACTLY what you need to know and how to protect yourself.

If you struggle with getting a good night’s sleep, I’ve got some urgent news for you: bad sleep (sleep apnea in particular) could be AMPLIFYING memory loss.

So it’s not just about tossing and turning or feeling tired the next day.

You could be DESTROYING your memories. = It’s the fast track to full-blown cognitive decline.

In a study of 127 healthy older folks, researchers tracked a LOSS of grey matter, greater levels of amyloid plaques, and even problems with metabolism!

Each of these is a chilling sign of advanced cognitive decline…

And they ALL happened just from losing sleep.

The study was extremely thorough. The researchers used SIX types of brain scans to make sure they were getting the right information.

And when they looked at the scans, they noticed something startling.

Not only were the participants’ brains being LOADED with dangerous amyloid proteins, they also saw DAMAGE in the posterior cingular cortex. This is the part of your brain that processes emotion and memory.

But this doesn’t have to happen to you.

You can protect yourself, starting with a sleep study.

Now, this doesn’t mean a visit to your doctor’s germ-ridden office. Many doctors are offering on-the-phone consultations, and most sleep studies can be done in the safety of your home.

In the meantime, protect yourself by taking a melatonin supplement for restless sleep.

And to protect your memory, try a brain-boosting dose of fish oil. You can find each of these online at Amazon.
