Your BPM Can Predict Your Risk of Cardiac Disease

By Dr. Jerry Mixon August 16, 2013

How fast your heart beats may predict how long you live. There are a lot of fancy and expensive medical tests that can be done to determine your risk for heart disease, stroke, and premature death. But there’s one test that you can actually do at home sitting on your couch that costs nothing, takes about one minute, and will give you a pretty good idea of your risk.

Brains SHRINK with age, but why?

The average brain shrinks about 0.5mm per year after age 50; those with Alzheimer’s may lose up to 2mm annually. This loss is “normally” accompanied by a decline in memory and mental agility. Sure, losing your mind is a “normal” part of aging. But normal is not my goal. We all know what I think about being normal, it STINKS! The fact is, your brain does not have to shrink as you get older. There are those rare individuals who have robust brains into their 80s and even 90s. If you want to be one of them, here is how you go about it.

First of all, give your brain the Omega 3 fats it needs for repair and maintenance. About 70% of your brain is made of Omega-3 fatty acids. Taking enough of LMC’s Ultra Omega will give you the raw material to work with. The next step is to stimulate your body to use that raw material for brain
