Exercise is not only good for your waistline but it is also good for your brain.  The University of Colorado Boulder recently discovered that even a minimal amount of exercise can help to protect against brain damage and memory loss .  Microglial cells are the immune defense cells of the brain, these cells are known to become more reactive to infection with age resulting in excess damage to the brain including the memory centers.  The researchers at University of Colorado Boulder wanted to know if there was any way to prevent or even eliminate this process in order to preserve memory with age.  Their conclusion was very simple, exercise is good for the brain!The study showed that even small amounts of exercise profoundly reduced the amount of inflammation in the brain and it’s residual memory impairments.  Research has previously shown that dementia often follows bacterial infections, such as pneumonia or E.coli, due to the release of inflammatory cytokines.  It would stand to reason that if one could reduce brain inflammation and cytokine release they would also reduce the damage associated with memory loss.


A regular routine of voluntary exercise does just that, it is the easiest and most cost effective way to prevent dementia.  If you have ever known someone affected by memory loss it is one of the most difficult and debilitating conditions one can face.  Being proactive with a fitness routine now before the onset of memory loss can arm your body with the ability to fight bacterial infections, minimize brain damage and conserve memory for many more years.


Max T3 is an exercise program designed with this in mind.  It takes only 12 minutes and because of the “Burst” or “surge” elements – it’s especially designed to change body chemistry, regulate hormones, improve cardiovascular function, burn fat, and build lean muscle for all ages and fitness levels.


ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE ON INFLAMMATION AND INFLAMMATORY CYTOKINES:

Nutrition

Sugars, bad fats, and grains – yes, even whole grains – cause an inflammatory, cytokine reaction too.  Inflammation is linked to virtually every kind of disease, pain, or syndrome.  While to most people, eliminating these nutrients from the diet sounds like torture – it’s actually not difficult.  It’s not because there are endless alternatives that taste great and you can eat more, weigh less, feel way better.  Combine MaxT3 and this type of eating and it’s a literal fountain of youth.


If you have yet to begin a Max T3 program and/or want to learn more about this kind of anti-aging nutrition, the best time to learn how is at the Maximized Living Makeover on October 8th from 9am-12pm.  Your local Maximized Living doctor will be teaching you how to transform your body, save your brain and feel better than you ever have in only minutes per day.  They’ll make your eating life easier, not harder to live then it is right now.


If you don’t have a Maximized Living doctor, find one today.
