1. Memory improved with this essential ‘brain repair’

    Stop the LEAK in your brain to END the drain!

    You know you’re not thinking right – but you also can’t quite explain what’s wrong, either.

    You’re slower… more absent-minded… and feeling like you’ve got a whole bunch of fog in there that just won’t clear out.

    Now, most folks think that’s just part of the whole aging game.

    And unless you’re in decline or suffering from dementia, your doctor will probably tell you as much.

    But all your memory struggles… and maybe even dementia itself… could have another cause.

    It’s a LEAK where you least expect it.

    Today, I’m going to share with you my REPAIR KIT for plugging up that “leaky brain” to STOP the drain and RESTORE your memory.

    Restore your memory and boost cognition with this quick fix

    There’s a lot to love about living out here in the Berkshires in winter.

    There’s NOTHING as good for the body and spirit as a walk through the hills after a fresh coat of snow on a chilly night, with only a sliver of moon to light your way.

    But I’m not going to lie: Living out here in winter means a LOT of work, too.

    It’s a constant battle to keep the SNOW and RAIN out of your home… and the HEAT trapped inside.

    And that means we’re always checking for leaks.

    Your brain’s the same way…

    You could have leaks up there – breaks in the seal that could let the good stuff out, and toxic junk to slip inside.

    These leaks in the all-important blood-brain barrier can, over time, lead to memory loss, cognitive decline and a whole lot more.

    But a new study on mice suggests that damage ISN’T permanent.

    If you can PATCH UP those leaks – and I’ll share my repair kit in a moment – you can refresh, restore and rejuvenate your brain.

    In essence, you can make it YOUNGER again!

    In experiments on mice, plugging up those leaks in the blood-brain barrier led to:

    • LESS inflammation in the brain; and
    • GREATER ability to learn new tasks

    They were so good at learning, in fact, they were able to MATCH much younger mice!

    Yes, in a very real way, fixing these leaks reversed aging in the brain.

    And it’s entirely possible that the same could happen for you.

    Researchers in the new study used a drug on the mice, but there’s another option here – a natural way to fix those leaks and rejuvenate your own brain.

    Just start with a B complex.

    In a study of seniors, this blend of B6, B12, and folate helped improve function of the blood-brain barrier and slowed the progression of mild cognitive impairment.

    And curcumin, a compound found in the spice turmeric, has been shown in tests on rats to restore the “tight junction proteins” that make up the most important part of your blood-brain barrier.

    That helps explain why this same compound has been shown in humans to help protect memory and overall brain function.

  2. Memory enhanced in just 20 minutes with rosemary

    Holiday herb turbo-charges your brain… in 20 MINUTES!

    It’s a potent little herb that goes with almost any meal – especially during the holidays.

    Whether it’s a Thanksgiving turkey, a rack of lamb for Christmas Eve, or roast pork for the New Year, rosemary brings its own delicious taste to meat.

    And if you think what it does for your meals is great… wait ’til you see what it does for your brain!

    Rosemary is a potent natural memory-booster than can also help enhance focus and concentration.

    Even small amounts of this humble herb can pack big benefits.

    And in one new study of rosemary extract mixed with water, the compounds inside the herb enhanced blood flow through the brain.

    When your brain gets more blood, it gets to soak up more oxygen as well as the essential nutrients it needs to function, leading to IMMEDIATE benefits.

    In the new study, volunteers were given either plain water or rosemary water followed by a series of tests to measure both working memory and long-term memory.

    Long-term memory is just what it sounds like; it’s your ability to quickly access and use the stuff in your brain’s long-term storage banks.

    Working memory is the short-term memory you rely on for everyday tasks and decisions.

    Within just 20 minutes, the folks who got the rosemary extract saw measurable improvements in both compared to people who just had plain water, scoring up to 15 percent better on tests.

    Not bad for a humble and inexpensive herb. And along with improving the memory, the ursolic acid in rosemary can also help fight cancer

    The new study tested a type of water mixed with rosemary extract, and if that’s your thing then feel free to enjoy it.

    But decades of research – and centuries of traditional medicine – have found that you can get the same benefits from rosemary in just about any form.

    In ancient Greece, students even wore garlands of rosemary to smell as they were studying.

    It worked, too, as modern studies have found rosemary is so powerful that even the aroma can boost your brain, improve your concentration and enhance your mood.

    You can cook with rosemary regularly: It goes great on poultry, lamb and steak, you can roast it with vegetables, or even infuse it into your olive oil.

    It’s also available as an essential oil for aromatherapy and as an extract in easy-to-swallow capsules.
