How to Protect Your Brain from Chronic Stress

00:00:00
Today we’re going to talk about how to actually protect your brain against stress here’s the problem stress shrinks your brain it causes the brain to experience atrophy

00:00:13
especially in the hippocampus which you nearly always see when someone has Alzheimer’s now, fortunately, there are two parts of your brain that have the capacity to regenerate

00:00:28
only two, not the whole brain and it just so happens that the hippocampus is one of them thank goodness and then you also have the olfactory bulb which has to do with smelling and the

00:00:40
differentiation of smelling one thing versus another the hippocampus is a structure that they’re still debating as far as the function there’s a lot of theories on what it does

00:00:52
but it has something to do with affecting short-term memory like some type of mechanism related to a relay switch to tap into your database of certain memories

00:01:03
but mainly short term not the long term also it can affect your ability to learn it can also affect your ability to be orientated so if you have damage with your

00:01:15
hippocampus you’re disoriented and that has a lot to do with this right here navigation because the hippocampus is involved with your ability to navigate through space

00:01:27
so if you were in a city for example and you had a map and you had to get out of the city if you had damage in your hippocampus you would have a difficult time navigating through this space and also

00:01:39
remembering where you were in space so you’re definitely gonna have problems finding out where you parked your car and you see that with Alzheimer’s it just so happens that 80 of Alzheimer’s patients also have type 2

00:01:54
diabetes symptoms so it’s not only the stress that can shrink the brain but also high sugar glucose carbs can also shrink the brain but what i want to talk about is what can you do

00:02:07
about this how can you protect the brain because everyone goes through stress and so you want to do these things right here six things make sure on a regular basis you’re taking b1 i recommend nutritional yeast

00:02:18
as a good source not the kind that has the added enriched fortified synthetic b vitamins but the one that’s unfortified unenriched you know nutritional yeast because you want the b1 b1 uh greatly

00:02:36
improves the hippocampus in fact if someone’s an alcoholic for example and they become b1 deficient they have problems with this and they start getting dementia so there are all sorts of conditions that

00:02:47
occur when you’re deficient in b1 affecting the hippocampus this will reduce stress number two DHA and EPA both of these together are omega-3 fatty acids

00:03:01
so whether you’re doing fish oil or especially cod liver oil or getting it from algae DHA EPA can help prevent the brain from shrinking and I’m going to put some links down below

00:03:13
of the research that I’m basing this off of so you need omega-3 fatty acids why because part of the brain is made from these healthy fats number three zinc there’s a lot of receptors

00:03:30
in the olfactory bulb and hippocampus for zinc if you lose your sense of smell that could be one symptom of a zinc deficiency so zinc not only affects this but this

00:03:42
too so shellfish is really good to get your zinc also you can take it as a supplement zinc does a lot it helps your immune system it helps keep testosterone at normal levels and then we get to

00:03:55
number four which is fasting creates a very interesting effect on the hippocampus and the olfactory bulb it actually increases something called

00:04:05
the brain-derived neurotrophic factor which is miracle growth for your brain so when you fast you grow your brain cells back fascinating number five

00:04:18
of course, keto low carb healthy keto ketones are wonderful for your brain loves ketones they’re anti-inflammatory they can feed the neurons even if there’s damage

00:04:30
and difficulty of your brain cells getting glucose so ketones bypass the whole thing and feed the brain and help to keep it nourished and number six is an exercise which can

00:04:42
also, help slow down or prevent shrinkage of the brain probably because you’re flooding the brain with all sorts of powerful chemicals as well as

00:04:53
oxygen okay so you’re gonna get a lot of oxygen too and there are other things you can do too like the hyperbaric oxygen therapy and uh using different types of exercise which I’ve done videos on but these are the

00:05:05
most important things to implement um just to make sure that you can maintain normal size of your brain all right thanks for watching before you go if you have a question

00:05:17
about a product or you’re new to keto and you want to know how to begin keto or you’re on keto and you need a debug because it’s not going as smooth I have a keto consultant standing by to

00:05:29
help you this is just for the people in the u.s hopefully in the future we’ll be able to answer everyone’s call but i put the number down below so you can call
