Memory Loss Hormones


Memory loss and mental deficiency are increasingly being linked to nutritional and blood sugar problems.

A recent message “A toast to good health”  looked at the benefits of toasting oatmeal to avoid the blood-sugar-insulin-roller coaster and the risks of obesity and diabetes.

New research shows that low glycemic nutrition can also assist memory retention and brain health.

Can oatmeal help us think more clearly?

A recent article at healthspa.com, “The Dark Truth Behind Sugar” (1) points out a link between sugar, memory losss and dementia.

The article says: Could you be prediabetic? According to the United States CDC, one-third of Americans are prediabetic and 90% of them, some 100 million, do not know it.

When researches compared blood sugar of 249 healthy adults in their 60s, there was a significant increase in brain atrophy and shrinkage in those whose blood sugars were high, but still in normal range, as set by the World Health Organization.

High-normal blood sugars can glycate, or clump together, sticking to proteins in the blood, becoming what are called advance glycation end products (AGEs). Studies show that AGEs may be the smoking gun for one’s chances of developing liver, kidney, heart, joint, or cognitive issues over time.

The article explains how sugar triggers dopamine receptors in the brain. Dopamine is the gotta-have-it-now hormone.  Most of us were raised on sugar… addicted early on so it became our poison of choice for life.

The article goes on to show that high-fructose corn syrup may be even worse.

While sugar is our new poison, linked to numerous chronic health issues,processed sugar is even worse. Americans consume more than half the world’s supply of high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS), a processed sugar linked to weight gain, cardiovascular issues, and cognitive issues now known as type 3 diabetes.

Research on the woes of HFCS has lead scientists to understand more about the difference between sucrose and fructose. Sucrose, or white table sugar, contains glucose, which the body, muscles, and brain can readily use. Fructose has a different story and needs to be understood.

Some 22 million years ago, apes in Africa lived on fruits picked right off trees. Around 17 million years ago, the earth cooled and the ice caps grew larger, leaving land bridges where the nomadic apes could migrate north.

As the earth cooled, fruit trees were replaced with deciduous trees, and soon what is now Europe and Asia was filled with starving apes. At some point, an intelligent genetic mutation occurred that allowed apes to store fructose as fat to endure long winters, rather than burn it quickly as food and energy. Many of these apes migrated back into Africa, passing the fructose-storing gene to the original African apes and possibly enabling them to forage for new sources of food.

According to scientists, this mutation was so powerful that only apes with the mutation survived to become our ancestors. Today, we carry this same gene, which has made high-fructose corn syrup our new poison.

In other words sugar and high-fructose corn syrup can not only lead to diabetes, liver, kidney, heart and joint distress, it can ruin our thinking!

Oats are known to lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels and they are nutritious in other ways also.  Oats are a very good source of fiber and are high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  Oats are believed to have protective effects against both heart disease and cancer.

Not All Oats Are Created Equal.

When it comes to modulating blood sugar, not all oats are anywhere close to the same.  Oats comes in numerous forms.

  • Whole oat grains or kernels (oat groats).  These oats are harvested and the outer hull is removed.
  • Steel cut oats (or Irish oats).  Oat groats are cut 2 to 3 times with a steel blade (‘steel cut’).
  • Whole rolled “Old Fashioned” oats. Oat groats that have been steamed, rolled under heavy rollers and lightly toasted.
  • Quick-cooking whole rolled oats.  Whole rolled oats cut into smaller pieces so they cook more quickly
  • Instant oatmeal.  Thinly rolled or cut oats that absorb water much more easily and therefore cook faster.
  • Oat bran.  This fiber-rich outer layer of the grain is often consumed separately as a cereal, with muesli or in breads.
  • Infant oatmeal.  Oats processed into powder.

Blood sugar control is a benefit of oats but not all oats offer equal modulation.   According to the American Diabetes Association, rolled oatmeal, steel-cut oatmeal, and oat bran are all low glycemic index foods, with a Glycemic Index (GI) value of 55 or less.

Quick oats have a medium GI, with a value of 56-69.

Instant oatmeal is considered a high GI food, with a value of 70 or more.

Oat groats, steel-cut oats or rolled oats are best for modulating blood sugar.

Preparation can make oats even healthier.

Oats are a good food for maintaining blood sugar, but research shows that three steps of preparation make oatmeal’s glycemic index even lower.  Step #1. Cook it. Step #2: Chill it.  Step #3: Reheat it.

Oat groats, steel-cut oats or rolled oats are best for modulating blood sugar and research has found that whole oats contain more fat than most other grains, ranging from 5-9%, mostly of unsaturated fatty acids.  Oats contain more protein and fat than most other grains.

Pure oats are gluten-free, plus the starch porridge oats contain feeds good bacteria in the gut, the health of which is increasingly being linked by scientists to the brain.   Additionally, it provides a great stream of sustained energy to power the brain.

An article at express.co.uk, “Foods That Induce Memory Loss” (2) leads to that evidence that oats help promote brain health.

The article says: Unfortunately, the foods that hamper memory are common staples in the American diet. White breads, pasta, processed meats and cheeses, all of these have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Some experts have even found that whole grain breads are as bad as white breads because they spike blood sugar, which causes inflammation.

DEMENTIA symptoms include memory loss and problems thinking, but adding porridge oats to your diet could help prevent brain decline.

The starch porridge oats contain feeds good bacteria in the gut, the health of which is increasingly being linked by scientists to the brain.

Additionally, it provides a great stream of sustained energy to power the brain.

Drizzling honey on top could also help according to recent research.  Eating honey daily could reduce the risk of developing dementia, scientists found.  Although high in sugar, honey could prevent neuroinflammation in the hippocampus section of the brain – part of the brain that’s directly involved in spatial memory.  Honey possesses natural antioxidants, and therapeutic properties, that help to prevent cognitive decline and dementia, scientists claimed.

Personally, I buy steel cut oats and oat groats in bulk.  I like the creamy nature of steel cut oats and the chewy feel of oat groats.  I toast and cook a week’s supply of 50-50 steel cut and oat groat at a time.  I store this in the fridge and then reheat breakfast each day.  This saves time and provides a convenient and fast healthy reheated breakfast whenever I want it on a busy day.

Become Smarter

 

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.
