Protecting the Aging Brain

Protecting your aging brain

Cardiovascular health is important for heart function in the aging process, but it’s also vitally important in brain function. The best way to protect the aging brain is to identify and aggressively treat vascular problems as soon as possible. In this episode of ALIve, CEO and Co-Founder of the Asher Longevity Institute John Asher interviews Dr. Jeffrey Boone, named one of the top cardiovascular doctors in America. Dr. Boone is the Founder and Director of the Boone Heart Institute in Denver and also is the Chief Medical Officer of the Asher Longevity Institute. John describes his own experience of increasing brain function under Dr. Boone’s care and Dr. Boone explains how scans can now measure brain function and how new therapies and drugs can help prevent strokes (the third leading cause of death) and early onset of dementia. While the brain is only 2% of the average human body weight, it receives up to 20% of the body’s blood supply. Protecting the aging brain by paying early attention to cardiovascular issues gives you a longer life span and also a longer healthspan.

PCSK9, LDL Little a, and Reversing Your Aging Brain

Dr. Jeffrey Boone talking about PCSK9, LDL little A and how it affects your brain

In this episode of ALIve from the Asher Longevity Institute, we continue with Dr. Jeffrey Boone of the Boone Heart Institute. This was taken from a presentation he made sharing case studies of the leaps in improved heart, circulatory, and brain health achieved through the use of PCSK9 and not accepting that some plaque is normal in your aorta. Although he refers to slides, the word pictures he gives us about the effect of cholesterol on our circulatory system and brains is invaluable in arming us to take control of our aging body, and especially brains. Listen through the case studies to determine what age you'd like your brain to achieve.

Here is the PDF covering this episode. It's from a 2020 Symposium presentation given by Dr. Boone.

Gut Microbiome - Protein Tips for Meats, Fish, and Veggies

ALI-tweet-ep4-mini-meat-fish-veggie-protein.png

There are dangers of eating meat. Based on a study of 6,000 people over 18 years who ate a lot of animal protein, four times higher risk of cancer, five times higher risk of diabetes, twice the risk of dying and the study of people who are vegetarians, vegetable protein does not increase the risk of any age relating diseases. Meat, in general, is going to shorten our life if you eat too much. How about the meat substitutes like the Beyond Burger or the Impossible Burger?  John tells this story. "My wife and I, about a year ago when it first came out, we said "Hey, yay, let's try this". So we bought a package of burger meat and a package of sausage. We took them home, cooked them up, actually tasted, frankly, it tasted great! However, my wife took a look at the ingredients on the package after we'd eaten them. I don't know why I didn't look?"

They're an ultra-processed food, meaning in the NOVA Food Classification system, it is the highest, worst processed food you can eat. It has 40 ingredients, including titanium dioxide, which is a whitening agent using paint potato starch, which is essentially candy, methylcellulose, a bulking agent used in laxatives, and 400% more sodium than lean burger meat. And the protein is provided by lagoons, peas, and beans. So it's full of lectin and it contains a ton of manufactured oils, canola, and sunflower, which means it's full of the omega-6 fatty acids.

Gut Microbiome - All About Cows and Sugar

ALI-tweet-ep4-mini-cows-sugar.png

About 2000 years ago in Northern Europe, there was a genetic mutation that changed the basic protein in cow milk from a casein a2 to casein a1. And the trouble with casein a1 is, it causes an attack on our immune system. And it explains why 65% of Americans are what is called lactose, the sugar in milk, intolerant. Actually, what we really are is intolerant of that protein casein a1. Most breeds of cows in the US are this type. So you can get great cheeses from Switzerland, France, and Italy, and it's fine to eat them, but not the cheeses that are manufactured in the US. You can also get goat milk butter, and clarified butter, ghee, with no dairy. Easy now to get goat milk and goat yogurt.
