Brand new research reveals that this popular supplement is actually TOXIC to men…
The Terrible “Healthy” Fad That’s Killing Men Sooner
There is a terrible fad these days about how healthy fish oil and krill oil are supposed to be.
Many nutritional gurus parrot the same line about how you should be taking fish oil… And they say you should do it in proportion to the amount of seed oils you’re eating.
The thought is that the “ratio” of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids is what is important.
However, research is showing how the fatty acids in fish oil, such as DHA, are particularly toxic.
They may even be the most toxic fatty acids we could possibly consume.
Today I want to show you how the fatty acid in fish oil, DHA, promotes cognitive impairment, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease.
According to the researchers:
“Alpha-synuclein…is the major constituent of Lewy bodies and glial cytoplasmic inclusions, which are pathological hallmarks of neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinson’s disease or multiple system atrophy.”
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, alpha-synuclein forms what are called Lewy bodies in the brain.
Lewy bodies are associated with dementia, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.
It is quite probable that most people who have cognitive impairment do not actually have obvious Lewy bodies.
But in all cases, alpha-synuclein is implicated.
So, even if you don’t have full-blown Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, you build up alpha-synuclein in your brain as you age.
In this study, exposure to DHA, a fatty acid found in fish oil, caused α-synuclein and is a precursor to all of these brain diseases.
The researchers chose to study DHA because it exists in high amounts in the brains of people with cognitive impairment, Parkinson’s, and Alzheimer’s.
“…arachidonic acid and DHA were found to initiate the aggregation of α-synuclein…”
These are exactly the fats that modern medicine promotes as “good fats.”
But they are the exact fats that help cause cognitive impairment and eventually Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or plain old senile dementia.
The good news is that this is probably reversible to a great extent!
In a very new study, they show that alpha-synuclein is actually a scavenger that protects the brain against harmful polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) such as DHA.
However, too much of this PUFA jams up the scavengers and inhibits them from working anymore.
The alpha-synuclein, once jammed up, can’t protect the brain any longer.
As the researchers say:
“…we show that fibrillar alpha-synuclein loses almost 80% of its scavenging activity, thus lacking a potentially protective function.”
So by removing PUFAs from our diet and replacing them with fully saturated fatty acids, we may be able to reverse this damage.
This may actually help to free up the alpha-synuclein, un-jamming the works, and letting our brains gradually recover from the assault of bad fats.
This may actually prevent or even reverse the early stages of cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, or Parkinson’s.
How I Maintain Testosterone of 883 – And You Can Too
Men who do things a little differently are maintaining extremely high testosterone levels throughout their entire lives…
…even men who are 70, 80, or 90 years old…
See this graph?
These men keep their natural testosterone levels high until their last day on Earth.
And high testosterone gives men incredible erections and sexual stamina.
