5 “Grandmother” Cures BOOST Memory, Vision, and More!
My grandfather always used to tell me that eating venison would help me run faster… and that carrots would help me see better.
My grandmother said that eating apples would help “keep the doctor away.”
Many of us have grown up with these sayings… but are they actually true?
Today, we’re going to see what science has to say about five popular folk remedies.
Let’s start with the most popular…
An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Researchers put this to the test in a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.
In a study that included over 8,000 people, 39% of the apple-a-day eaters avoided going to the doctors, compared to 34% in the non-apple-eating group.
That’s not a statistically significant difference, which means that apples did NOT keep the doctor away.
But we do know that apples are full of beneficial fiber, vitamins, and minerals that can reduce inflammation, while also combatting cardiovascular disease and even cancer.
So while they may not reduce your trips to your doctor, they’re still worth eating… even every day.
Carrots help you see better.
The verdict is in, and the answer is YES!
Carrots are rich with beta carotene – the precursor to vitamin A – which is essential for good vision. For example, vitamin A makes a pigment that helps your eyes work better in low light.
The beta carotene in carrots—along with lutein—also helps prevent oxidative damage that can damage your eyes.
Diets high in lutein are proven to help protect against age-related macular degeneration, a leading cause of blindness.
Turkey makes you sleepy.
We’ve all experienced that post-Thanksgiving dinner sleepiness—and we’ve all heard that turkey is to blame.
So is there any truth to it? Yes and no.
Yes, turkey contains tryptophan, which can promote sleep. But since tryptophan can’t get past your blood-brain barrier on its own, it’s not likely to make you want to take a nap.
However, tryptophan’s effect increases when it’s combined with a lot of carbs—which sounds to me like the typical Thanksgiving dinner.
Plus, when you eat a lot of ANYTHING, more blood flows to your stomach for digestion, causing less blood to get to your brain.
Ginger relieves nausea.
It sure does!
Plenty of clinical studies show that ginger can relieve nausea and vomiting caused by all sorts of issues… motion sickness, morning sickness, drug side effects, and more.
That’s because ginger contains compounds that help empty your stomach, which helps relieve nausea.
However, a sugary can of ginger ale probably won’t do the trick. For real relief, opt for ginger tea or a ginger capsule.
Fish is good for your brain.
If you read my articles regularly, you know that this one is 100% TRUE.
Eating fish every week has been associated with more gray matter in the brain, which controls vision and memory.
Fish intake has also been shown to delay cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s.
