New To Keto But Want To Grow Your Knowledge?
More specifically, you want help with The Best Anti-Aging Foods for the Brain?
today we’re gonna talk about the brain and how to keep your brain really young and healthy sound good okay so the raw material of the brain which basically makes up the structure a good portion of it is something called DHA this is you know mega 3 fatty acid okay comes from fish shellfish and definitely cod liver oil and salmon so you want to start consuming more fish to get more of this to give your brain what it needs structurally and in a growing child it’s extremely important but in a pregnant female it’s even more important now the fuel that the brain prefers is ketones way over glucose it does need a certain amount of glucose but don’t worry about that because your body can make glucose from ketones and from fat and from protein so we don’t need to consume glucose to feed our brain prefers ketones if you have glucose and ketones in the blood the brain will always take ketones first so if you’re transitioning to ketosis and let’s say you have an insulin resistance or you’re pre-diabetic or you’re diabetic and it takes longer you can add MCT oil to beef up no pun intended your ketones to basically get more ketones in your brain and your brain will be happier you’ll have more energy so let’s talk about the different ways your brain can become damaged one way is to deprive it of magnesium now when you have a subclinical magnesium deficiency maybe you don’t consume enough vegetables or food with magnesium the energy that’s generated in little factories called mitochondria and your neurons are going to be deprived and you’re gonna lose the quantity and the density of these synapses okay so magnesium is really really important there’s a type of magnesium that works way better for the brain than other types of magnesium magnesium l three and eight this magnesium has a special quality of penetrating the blood-brain barrier going in there and restoring these synapses and increasing the density of them and it’s great for increasing memory cognitive function learning and extending your sleep a little longer as well but don’t forget to consume the green foods and I’m not talking about lime green jello or pistachio ice cream I’m talking about vegetables okay now iron is a very toxic mineral for the brain and for the liver and for the heart if it’s in excess amounts it’s very corrosive it oxidizes the brain if you find that you have high iron it’s a good idea to get tested EDTA it’s a key later will help remove the excess just make sure you don’t keep putting it back in by consuming certain supplements with a lot of iron I’m gonna put a link down below with more information on this specifically if you haven’t seen my video on iron it’s really important okay next thing is atrophy of the brain if you have insulin resistance or you’re pre-diabetic or you’re diabetic what’s going to happen over time the brain is gonna have atrophy it’s going to shrink and that’s going to create a lot of problems with your cognitive function to help mitigate that or reverse that you want to do ketosis how do you ketosis you would drop your carbs and you do intermittent fasting real simple now certain parts of the brain have the capacity to grow new neurons thank goodness the parts of the brain that are involved with memory can regenerate so to get new brain cells Henneman fasting is probably the most important thing and also regular consistent exercise can also help with that and it’ll also increase this other thing called BDNF brain-derived neurotrophic factor which is like miracle-gro for your brain and these are the two triggers there’s other triggers as well okay zinc very important in preventing something called amyloid plaque Ignatz involved in Alzheimer’s so this is kind of a type of protein that accumulates in this area right here of the synapses and it interferes with the communication between the brain and you start getting dementia so zinc is very very important into preventing this the other thing that’s really important in getting rid of ammo like locking is in a minute fasting in periodic prolonged fasting cellphones very very dangerous to your brain okay especially when you’re holding it right here never hold your cell phone you’re gonna get EMF if you haven’t seen my video on that you definitely need to watch it this is not weird or a myth or something it’s real you need I put a link down below but do not touch the cell phone to your skull while you’re talking like this hold it out here or have on speakerphone and definitely don’t use the Bluetooth I talked more about it in my video and there’s a couple of things that can counter EMF radiation niacin at 50 milligrams per day would be good also intermittent fasting is very beneficial vestrum oils which caused a lot of oxidation and it’s similar to the effects that glucose will give you as well as iron so do not consume corn oil canola cottonseed and soy oil instead olive oil is much better okay over here we have hypoxia okay that’s a situation where you’re you have a loss of oxygen in certain parts of your brain that could come from many things let’s see you had trauma to the head at some point let’s say it a stroke CIA your your parents dropped you on your head is a baby or we have sleep apnea and you’re restricting the oxygen to your brain a couple things to do one is a robic exercise that’s getting out there walking or riding your bike or a jog consistently every day that will increase the oxygen to the brain the other thing that’s really hot is this hyperbaric oxygen therapy I’m gonna put a link down below but hyperbaric oxygen therapy has some serious hardcore research behind it it’s extremely effective and you’ll definitely want to know more about it especially if you wanted to fix this right here you basically put it in a container and the oxygen is increased to nearly a hundred percent normally the air that you breathe it’s like 21% oxygen well in a hyperbaric chamber they’re gonna increase it close to 100% and with all the pressure involved it’s going to force oxygen into your lungs into your blood cells into the entire tissues up into the brain so if there’s any areas of damaged or pockets of hypoxia or ischemia which is a lack of oxygen oxygen it’ll feed that and help heal those tissues they use it for many many conditions but it’s great for your brain next thing is ketones run your bun and ketones will increase the o2 and decrease the co2 now there’s another condition which I believe many people have a subclinical version of this but it’s called wernicki Korsakoff this is a b1 deficiency it’s gonna affect your memory especially in the development of new memories it’s gonna affect your gait eventually can bring you to apathy affect your vision and sleep apnea simple b1 a lot of people are deficient in b12 they don’t even know it why are people deficient in B 1 because it’s involved in the energy factory mitochondria the cell when you’re dealing with glucose so if you’re doing glucose or refined carbohydrates or sugar you’re gonna burn up your b1 very fast and you’re gonna create a deficiency so glucose high fructose corn syrup alcohol white rice will just burn this up and start to develop these conditions right here there’s a lot of other conditions that a deficiency of b1 can create as well I put a link down below in the description of a talk I did on b1 at the summit in 2018 if you haven’t seen that that’s a really good presentation now when you’re deficient in iodine okay it can affect your IQ so if you’d like to keep your IQ up iodine is the answer alright selenium if you’re deficient you can have mercury toxicity because what happens is if there’s too much mercury in the brain it can lock up the selenium and that’s involved in the antioxidant Network glutathione for example and then you’re deficient in that and now you you can’t really get rid of all the free radicals in the oxidation so selenium is very very important and then vitamin D which mostly part deficient in that as well if you’re low in vitamin D you’re gonna have way more inflammation that you want of the brain as well also you’re not gonna have good sleep so vitamin D is good for that so how could you kind of condense all this data into five things here we go shellfish will give you sink copper iodine selenium and DHA also if you add in there other fish fatty fish halibut salmon and also cod liver oil you’re gonna get it enough DHA as well the Sun okay I get more Sun get more vitamin D it’s virtually impossible to get your vitamin D from food so you have to get it from Sun or just take it greens dark leafy greens folate magnesium potassium keto that’s a given in a minute fasting vital and regular exercise there you have it this is the summary right here thanks for watching thank you

Today, let’s talk about the best anti-aging foods for the brain, so you can keep your brain young and healthy.
Here’s what you should know:
• Magnesium – magnesium helps restore synapses and increases their density. This improves memory, cognitive functioning, learning, and sleep.
• Iron – too much iron can cause harm to your brain. If you have high iron, lay off of any supplements and foods you may be consuming that have high iron content.
• Zinc – you need plenty of zinc to help prevent amyloid plaque. Amyloid plaque is what causes dementia.
• Cell phones – EMFs, which cellphones emit, are not good for your brain. Don’t hold your phone up to your head (use speakerphone) and don’t use Bluetooth headsets. Niacin (50 mg/day) can also help counter EMF radiation.
• Vegetable oil – corn oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, and soy oil promote oxidation in the brain. Stay away from these. Use olive oil instead.
• B1 deficiency – if you are deficient in vitamin B1, this can cause a condition called Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Symptoms include memory problems, apathy, vision issues, and problems with gait. Carbs, glucose, and high-fructose corn syrup burn up vitamin B1.
• Low Selenium – Low levels of selenium can cause high mercury, which leads to damage by oxidizing the brain.
Here are 5 things you should get more of:
DHA, which is an omega-3 fatty acid, makes up the majority of the brain. To supply your brain with plenty of DHA, you need to have plenty of shellfish and other fish like salmon. Shellfish are also a great source of zinc, copper, iodine, and selenium.
Sunlight is the best source of vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential for brain health. It helps reduce inflammation in the brain and improve sleep.
Dark leafy green vegetables contain nutrients that are vital to cognitive health like folate, magnesium, and potassium.
4. Keto + IF
Ketones are the brains preferred source of energy. If the body has ketones available, it will always take ketones first. A ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting will put your body in the state of ketosis and help supply your brain with energy. MCT oil is a great way to help increase your ketones.
Hypoxia is a situation where you have low oxygen in certain parts of your brain. This can come from many things, including head trauma, strokes, and sleep apnea. You can help increase the oxygen to your brain by doing aerobic exercises like walking, riding your bicycle, or jogging every day. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy may also have some incredible benefits.
