Brain Surgeon’s Health Advisory for Those Over 40
Dear friend “of a certain age,”
If you’ve hit mid-life, you’ve probably noticed signs of aging — wrinkles, thinning hair, and maybe a few extra pounds around your hips or belly.
And while that creeping middle-aged weight gain may not be desirable . . .
There’s one area of your body you should keep as plump and fat as possible — and that’s your brain.
You see, your brain shrinks by about 5% per decade after you hit age 40.
Maybe that doesn’t sound like much to you, but listen . . .
Your brain contains about 86 billion nerve cells called neurons.
Each piece of your brain the size of a speck of sand contains 100,000 neurons all trying to talk to each other through 1 billion connecting points called synapses.
This allows over 100,000 chemical reactions to occur in your brain every second. Crucial chemicals called neurotransmitters move across connection points and release their contents into gaps between these synapses.
And all these connections going on inside your brain are what allow you to create and retain memories, form ideas and thoughts, experience emotions, and even express your unique personality.
Why You Want a Fat Brain
Your brain only weighs about 3 pounds. Yet about 60% of your brain is fat. This makes your brain the fattest organ you have.
And this fat is essential for your brain to function.
For one thing, your brain requires fat for energy. Although your brain makes up only about 2% of your body weight, it uses a whopping 20% of the energy your body produces just to function normally.
Fat is necessary to create brain cell membranes and produce neurotransmitters. Plus, it serves as the raw material to make hormones.
And fat makes up about 60% to 80% of the myelin sheath, a protective covering around nerve axons. These axons represent the primary transmission lines of your nervous system.
As you can see, the fat in your brain serves many vital functions.
Shrinkage Matters to Your Memory —
Especially if You’re a Woman
Two areas of your brain especially prone to age-related shrinkage are the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex. These are important parts of the brain when it comes to memory, learning, and other complex mental activities.
With aging, neurons themselves shrink in number and volume. The connections between nerve cells deteriorate and become less extensive. The level of neurotransmitters declines.
And a shrinking brain is only one of the changes your brain faces as the years pass.
- With aging, the brain undergoes a gradual reduction in blood flow.
- Aging speeds up an imbalanced process of inflammation in the brain (as well as the entire body).
- Free radicals in the brain and body accumulate at a faster rate with age. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can damage neurons and other cells throughout the body.
Scientists have found that women suffer more age-related shrinkage in areas of the brain related to memory than men do. And while men are not exempt from those frustrating “senior moments,” their brain shrinkage tends to cause more changes in areas related to thinking and feeling.
So what does all this mean?
Well, by the time you hit mid-life, when it comes to brain health, you’re no longer on the offense.
After 40, You Need to Play a Strong Game of Defense
You may have noticed that you tend to forget where you put things — like your car keys. Or your phone. Or your glasses, even when they’re sitting on top of your head.
Or you might forget appointments or names of people you’ve just met.
You might have more difficulty concentrating or focusing on tasks than you used to.
Or perhaps you have a foggy brain feeling that keeps you from thinking clearly.
You see, aging is the single greatest risk factor for developing memory concerns.
And over 60% of people middle-aged and older suffer some degree of memory impairment.
In fact, according to the National Institute on Aging, memory problems are one of the first warning signs of cognitive loss, which involves mental slowing and declining intellect.
Fortunately, while you can’t stop the inevitable march of time . . .
You can take some simple steps to combat brain shrinkage and other signs of aging that could impact your memory — and your quality of life.
A Retired Brain Surgeon Comes to the Rescue
Russell Blaylock, M.D., practiced conventional medicine as a board-certified neurosurgeon for nearly 30 years.
Over his many years in practice, Dr. Blaylock worked on the brains of thousands of patients.
As he became more and more disillusioned by mainstream medicine, he began to research safe and effective natural treatments for the brain and body. He has written several popular books on nutrition and wellness.
Of course, as an actual brain surgeon, Dr. Blaylock might be a tad bit biased. But I’m betting you’d agree with him that your brain is your most important organ.
And whether you’re middle-aged or even older, Dr. Blaylock says that “NOW” is the time to start making positive lifestyle changes to keep your brain in peak health.
Here are seven of his simple and natural tips to rejuvenate and nourish
1. Eat Brain-Healthy Foods — and Stay Hydrated
Eat brain-healthy foods in a diet loaded with fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, beans, olive oil, and wild-caught fish. And don’t forget to drink enough water. When your brain becomes even mildly dehydrated, it cannot operate at peak performance.
2. Take Steps to Maintain Your Optimal Weight
The latest research indicates that being significantly overweight can multiply your risk for cognitive decline as you age. Abdominal obesity (belly fat) can lead to a variety of health concerns that compromise brain health and function.
3. Avoid Chronic Stress
Some stress in your life is inevitable. But severe or chronic stress can speed up shrinkage of your brain and cognitive decline. So find a good relaxation method that works for you. Try meditation, yoga, tai chi, or prayer. If you feel overloaded, ask for help and support.
4. Move, Move, Move
Dr. Blaylock recommends you get at least 45 minutes of moderate — but not intense — physical exercise most days of the week. This could be brisk walking, riding your bike, swimming, or anything that gets your heart beating faster. From a brain standpoint, this is important because moderate exercise reduces inflammation in the brain (as well as the rest of your body).
5. Challenge Your Brain
You’re never too old to learn something new — whether it’s speaking a foreign language, taking a photography course, or mastering chess. Anything that stimulates your brain will also help strengthen your memory and help form new connections between nerve cells.
6. Invest in Your Social Relationships
A Harvard study found that people with the most active social lives had the slowest rate of age-related memory decline. So invest time and attention on your friendships and family connections. Join social clubs and seek out interesting conversations with new people.
7. Consider Supplementing Your Diet With Brain-Loving Nutrients
Dr. Blaylock has spent decades studying the latest findings on nutrition and brain health. To that end, he has researched specific nutrients shown to play important roles in supporting optimal brain and memory function.
Unfortunately, he couldn’t find a single supplement containing all the nutrients that satisfied his requirements.
And he knows many folks can’t afford to buy multiple products — or spend hours researching which nutrients work best.
That’s why Dr. Blaylock decided to create the comprehensive brain formula KERALEX™.
Take Control — Flood Your Cells With Brain Nutrients
Dr. Blaylock’s exclusive KERALEX formula provides you with a simple, easy way to support optimal brain health and cognitive function.
This comprehensive blend of hand-picked nutrients contains not one or two, but six ingredients — all with the following benefits in mind:
Supports Brain Health
Supports Cognitive Health
Supports Circulatory Health
Provides Antioxidant Protection
Supports Heart Health
- Supports Brain Health
- Supports Cognitive Health

“My brain is still very alert. I take KERALEX every day — would not do without it. Thanks!”
“I feel I am getting the best brain protection from KERALEX - based on research. It gives me hope that I will not have memory problems that run in my family.”
“My use of Keralex which has given me a renewed vitality. Medix Select's product possesses such a wonderful comprehensive brain health, I only wish I had had this product when I was younger.”
“My brain is still very alert. I take KERALEX every day — would not do without it. Thanks!”
“I bought KERALEX to help defog my brain and it started working in just a day or two.”
“This supplement has improved my brain function. While taking it, over time I’ve noticed real improvement with memory.”
“Upon adding KERALEX to my diet, my memory improved dramatically and I have the ability to resource my vocabulary better. This brain enhancement has made a significant improvement in my life.”
How KERALEX Supports Your Brain & Cognitive Health
While nothing can stop the hands of time, the seven lifestyle changes Dr. Blaylock suggested above can help slow the aging process.
More importantly, KERALEX can help support your brain health
by promoting healthy blood circulation and a proper inflammatory response. That’s important because a decrease in blood flow — and an increase in inflammation and damaging free radicals — only worsen the problems of an aging brain.
Dr. Blaylock took many factors into consideration when he formulated KERALEX. This formula promotes healthy brain structure and function, including all-important cognitive health.
Because so many brain functions are essential to your enjoyment of life and ability to age successfully, Dr. Blaylock personally selected all the nutrients you will find in KERALEX:
Omega-3 Fish Oil — Including DHA
As you saw earlier, approximately 60% of your brain is composed of fat.
Omega-3 essential fatty acids provide the building blocks for your brain’s 86 billion nerve cells. And since your body can’t make them, you must get your omega-3s through food or supplementation.
Research demonstrates that consumption of more omega-3s produces larger, more functional brains.
A 2009 scientific review concluded that omega-3 fatty acids play a role in promoting healthy outcomes associated with age-related cognitive decline in older adults.
KERALEX contains 750 mgs of omega-3 fish oil, including 570 mgs of DHA per daily serving.
DHA is the most abundant omega-3 fat in brain cell membranes and most concentrated in brain regions involved in memory.
DHA is particularly important to offset oxidative stress from damaging free radicals. It also promotes blood flow to memory-critical areas of the brain and supports a balanced inflammatory response.
In addition to supporting brain health, research shows that omega-3s also promote cardiovascular health. This is another critical benefit for those over 40.
Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10)
Tiny mitochondria inside your body’s cells convert oxygen and nutrients into energy.
Unfortunately, these crucial mitochondria become damaged with aging, particularly in brain cells associated with learning and memory.
Due to their intense energy requirements, brain cells need an adequate supply of the vitamin-like substance coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for optimal function of their mitochondria.
Declining cellular energy production is a hallmark of the aging process, with aging individuals found to have 57% less CoQ10 on average compared to young adults.
Supplementation with CoQ10 helps combat mitochondrial dysfunction in the brain and nerve cells, thereby preserving vital brain functions.
Coenzyme Q10 not only provides energy to cells, but also acts as an antioxidant. With its antioxidant capabilities, CoQ10 helps scavenge cell-damaging free radicals in the brain and in nerve cells.
Your heart also has a high need for energy to keep it pumping continuously. Just as with omega-3s, CoQ10 promotes heart health as well as brain health.
Phospholipids are key fat components of cell membranes throughout the body.
Unfortunately, as you grow older, phospholipid levels tend to decrease. This can result in age-related memory issues.
Phosphatidylserine (PS) is a key phospholipid compound and one you’ll find in the KERALEX formula.
PS helps maintain brain cell integrity. And by keeping nerve cell membranes more flexible, PS allows nutrients into the cells and facilitates the removal of waste products.
PS also helps improve nerve cell communication by promoting the release of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine.
Studies show that PS enhances antioxidant activity, defends against oxidative stress, and supports memory and learning.
Turmeric is a bright yellow herb and spice used in American mustard. It also gives Indian curry its flavor and yellow color.
Aside from its use in food, turmeric (and its active component curcumin) have been used for thousands of years, both in Chinese healing and the Ayurvedic tradition.
The curcumin in turmeric is an antioxidant scavenger of free radicals and promotes an optimal inflammatory response.
As an antioxidant, curcumin supports mitochondrial function and helps offset free radical damage.
Preliminary studies show curcumin may help balance levels of brain-derived neurotropic factor (BDNF), a protein that supports the growth and survival of nerve cells.
Vitamin E — Gamma and Alpha Tocopherol
The tocopherol form of vitamin E is a potent antioxidant. It plays a protective role in brain health and helps support cognitive health.
Research indicates that tocopherols promote a balanced inflammatory response and help scavenge free radicals. This supports healthy cognitive and brain function.
BioPerine® Black Pepper Fruit Extract
While you probably use black pepper to spice and season your food, Ayurvedic healers have used it for thousands of years as a traditional folk remedy to help with digestion.
Scientists have proven that the spiciness of black pepper is due to the chemical piperine. Besides being spicy, piperine helps with absorption of vital nutrients.
That’s why the KERALEX formula contains 5 mg per capsule — a full research dose — of black pepper fruit extract as BioPerine.
BioPerine is the only product sourced from black pepper fruit piperine to get a patent for its ability to increase the bioavailability of nutrients.
Bioavailability is vital because your body must be able to adequately absorb and use the nutrients you consume in foods and nutritional supplements.
In general, BioPerine has been found to enhance absorption of certain nutrients by at least 30%.
