Statins Aren’t the Only Heart Pills Stealing Your Memories
Health Watch readers know statins are one of the most dangerous drugs you can take. They won’t save your heart. They put it in danger…along with your brain. But these aren’t the only dangerous heart drugs on the market. New research reveals another class of drug that will rot your brain…
Researchers at Rutgers University looked at medical data for almost 500,000 statin users from 1987-2013. They compared it to two control groups. One with about 500,000 people who didn’t take lipid-lowering drugs (LLDs). The other with over 25,000 non-statin LLD users.
They found both statin and non-statin LLD users reported memory loss after 30 days of treatment. In fact, both of these groups were about four times more likely to have memory problems.1 But this doesn’t even surprise us…
We’ve known for years that statins cause cognitive impairment.2 That’s because they lower brain levels of cholesterol. Your brain can’t function properly when cholesterol levels get too low. This can impair—even erase—memory.3 So why would non-statins be any different?
Not all experts agree with the findings… But it’s not all that surprising. Visit any site saying LLDs are safe and you’ll have at least one big drug ad thrown in your face. That’s no coincidence. Don’t let them fool you. There are safer, natural ways to protect your heart… And preserve your memory.
Adding the right fats to your diet is a great first step. Something as simple as eating more avocado can lead to a 20% drop in LDL cholesterol… And increase your HDL—the good kind—by as much as 11%.4
Artichoke can lower your bad cholesterol by 22.9%.5 Even better? Dipping it in ghee or grass-fed butter could improve your heart health even more. This may lower your risk of heart disease by 23%.6 It’s a savory treat that you can feel good about eating.
These will help protect your heart—and your brain… But statins and LLDs aren’t the only drugs that are putting your health in danger.
We list several others in our special report, The Top 10 Dangerous Pharmaceutical Drugs—And Their Natural Alternatives. It’s an important read for you and your family. Why? Because millions of Americans take these deadly pills. There’s a good chance someone you love is endangering his or her life. And they may have no clue.
You’ll discover a proven plant extract that works as well as antidepressants—but without horrible side effects… A common nutrient that 23 studies have shown decreases blood pressure… An antioxidant found in beer that not only relieves joint pain, but can help you feel relaxed and calm… And that’s just the beginning.
