Breakthrough research reveals that the secret to defeating Alzheimer’s can be found deep inside your own body.And not in one of Big Pharma’s drugs.This will come as more bad news to the pharmaceutical industry and their shareholders. After all, they’ve been lining their pockets for years, pushing expensive drugs that have a 99.9% failure rate.In many cases, these drugs have made things much worse for sufferers of this dreadful, mind-wasting disease.1The truth is, tens of billions of dollars, including more than $3.7 billion Just last year alone, have been poured into Alzheimer’s research over the past decade – and it has all been pointless.Because none of them has brought us one step closer to finding a cure or stopping the unprecedented global explosion of Alzheimer’s.This once-rare disease has now turned into a global epidemic and the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S.

But while researchers in America pour even more money into ineffective and expensive drugs, a team of scientists in Israel has made an astonishing breakthrough discovery.Researchers at Ben-Gurion University discovered that the root of Alzheimer’s lies in your mitochondria, the tiny energy powerhouses found in each one of your cells.2Piggybacking on the growing body of evidence that’s linked mitochondrial dysfunction to Alzheimer’s, the Israeli team used mouse models to target a mitochondrial gatekeeper – a protein called VDAC1 – which controls how these energy powerpacks function, as well as the life and death of the cell itself.The researchers found that when lab mice produce an excess of VDAC1 in their brain cells, they suffer mitochondrial and cell death, triggering an autoimmune response and neuroinflammation.This, in turn, leads to the release of neurotoxins that result in amyloid plagues and nerve tangles that are characteristic symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.But, by targeting VDAC1 with a special molecule that binds to the protein, the researchers prevented the changes that cause mitochondrial dysfunction and Alzheimer’s in the first place.This is great news…It means you now have the ability to prevent this dreadful disease from ever striking.

It’s one of the reasons we’ve had such success treating Alzheimer’s patients at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine.We have been recommending natural therapies that target mitochondria for years.Meanwhile, Big Pharma has been caught flat-footed.But the good news is you don’t need one of their expensive drugs to target your mitochondria and beat Alzheimer’s.At the Sears Institute, I help my patients keep their mitochondria firing on all cylinders with my favorite nutritional supplement, bar none. I’m talking about CoQ10.You already know how crucial this compound is for your heart. But it’s also a turbo booster for the mitochondria in your brain. It helps them burn fuel more efficiently.And your brain burns through a lot of CoQ10.As the most energy-hungry Organ in your body, your brain cells have the greatest number of mitochondria – more than 2,000 of them in each nerve cell.But as you grow older, your mitochondria decay, become weaker, and die. They also become fewer in number. This is a major cause of aging and the cause of many neurodegenerative disorders, like Parkinson’s and dementia.The problem is that your body makes less CoQ10 as you age – and, as a result, the less powerful your eyes and brain become.But boosting your CoQ10 levels can bring immediate, often brain-saving benefits.Unfortunately, it’s not easy to replenish this super nutrient through your diet anymore. That’s because some of the–– are no longer dinner table staples.The widespread use of statin drugs, which can lower your CoQ10 levels by as much as 40%, has only added to the problem.3

4 Simple Steps To Get More CoQ10 To Your Brain’s Mitochondria

For premium brain protection, here’s what I suggest:

1. Get more CoQ10 from your diet

The richest sources of CoQ10 come from grass-fed beef and organ meats like heart, liver, and kidney. I recommend bringing these foods back to the dinner table.

2. Supplement to replace what’s missing from your food

If you’re healthy, I recommend at least 50 mg of ubiquinol every day. Make sure it says “ubiquinol form” on the label. It’s eight times more powerful than the conventional CoQ10 you find at your local drugstore. In fact, 50 mg of ubiquinol is equal to 400 mg of conventional CoQ10. (If you are still taking a statin, increase your dose to 200 mg.)

3. Always include PQQ

I also recommend adding PQQ. While CoQ10 does an amazing job of getting more power out of your mitochondria, it does nothing for the mitochondria you’ve already lost. That’s where PQQ comes in. PQQ triggers your brain cells to build healthY new mitochondria. And it protects mitochondria by neutralizing the free radicals that damage them. Good food sources include natto, kiwi, green tea, and parsley. But if you’re already experiencing memory loss, I recommend going straight to a supplement. Take 10 to 20 mg of PQQ daily with your CoQ10.

4. Don’t forget the fat

CoQ10 is fat soluble, so it should be taken with a meal containing fat. That will help your body absorb it better. Also, supplementing with this antioxidant at night can help with your body’s ability to use it.

Of course, replenishing your mitochondria is just one aspect of beating Alzheimer’s. My Sears Wellness Foundation gives a series of lectures on the subject. I’d say that my seminars on beating this dreaded disease and improving memory are the most well-attended lectures I offer.
