“Golden Drink” Gives You a Super Brain
God only gave me one brain.
And I’m going to do everything I can to protect it.
I’m sure you feel the same way.
But if those “senior moments”… like forgetting a name or a face, or where you put the car keys… have you worried, I have just the answer you’re looking for.
Because a delicious tea may have the power to improve your memory… your thinking… and even your mood.
And it’s all thanks to a “super spice” that may be sitting in your kitchen right now.
A study published in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychology showed that curcumin, the key component of the spice turmeric, can improve memory and mood, while reducing signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
For the study, 40 older adults with memory issues took 90 mg of curcumin or a placebo for 18 months. To determined the effectiveness of curcumin, patients took cognitive tests every six months and they had their blood levels tested.
They also underwent PET scans to determine levels of beta amyloid plaque and tau proteins (two of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease). This was an important component of the study, since it provides a completely objective result of what’s going on inside the brain.
At the end of the 18 months, those taking curcumin experienced improvements in all measures tested.
Compared to those taking a placebo, they had a 28% improvement in memory, plus improvements in mood and attention.
But it was the visible results of the PET scan that were truly remarkable.
People taking curcumin had significantly less buildup of beta amyloid plaque and tau proteins in areas of the brain that control memory and emotions.
All of this adds up to meaningful benefits in the key areas of brain health that can determine your overall cognitive function.
In fact, many people believe that the reason why people from India have better cognitive performance and lower incidences of Alzheimer’s disease is because turmeric is a staple spice in their diet.
This latest study seems to validate this idea.
The best way to get curcumin is through the spice turmeric.
Personally, I like to have a drink called turmeric tea, or golden milk. To make it, you’ll need:
- 2 cups of milk (coconut, almond, dairy)
- 1 tsp turmeric
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- Pinch of black pepper
- 1 tsp raw honey or maple syrup
Blend the ingredients in a blender, then heat over medium heat for 3-5 minutes (don’t boil it), then drink up!
To a brighter day,
