No hope for Alzheimer’s? Don’t you believe it!
When they SAY there’s no hope, what they MEAN is that there are no drugs – because as far as the mainstream’s concerned, that’s all that matters.
But not as far as I’m concerned.
There are safe and proven ways to STOP Alzheimer’s from striking and help BLOCK the damage if you have it, including…
- B vitamins that can slow the brain shrink the leads to decline
- High-dose omega-3s which can power your brain and slow the damage
- Caffeine and other compounds in coffee to enhance brainpower and memory
All three can lower the risk of getting Alzheimer’s, and slow it down if you have it.
But the latest animal research reveals what could be the most powerful weapon yet against this disease… from two of the humblest origins.
How TEA & CARROTS could stop dementia cold
Yes, tea and carrots.
Mice with a rodent form of Alzheimer’s disease were given EGCG from green tea and the ferulic acid found in carrots and tomatoes in amounts that would be perfectly normal and safe when boosted to human levels.
Over three months, the mice were completely restored to normal.
On the one hand, the researchers are saying don’t get TOO excited since it’s a study on mice and not people. And that’s fair.
But on the other… well… we’ve seen incredible results in humans just from tea alone.
One study found tea drinkers, in general, have HALF the risk of dementia when compared to seniors who rarely enjoy a little brew.
That’s not even the most impressive part of that study.
They also isolated patients with the HIGHEST possible risk: Folks genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s.
And in these folks with the highest risk… people who need help the most… the results were absolutely stunning: Tea cut the risk by 86 percent!
The KEY to choosing the RIGHT Alzheimer’s fighting tea
All tea is loaded with age-fighting catechins and theaflavins, not to mention brain-boosting caffeine.
But what makes green tea so special is that it has all of the same healthy compounds as black tea as well as higher levels of the EGCG used in the new study with so much promise.
So while that new study was on mice, there’s CLEARLY something to this “tea stuff.”
And if you love tea yourself, drink up.
There IS a catch.
Tea can have ANOTHER compound that, unlike brain-supporting EGCG, caffeine, catechins, and theaflavins could HARM brain function.
The tea plant is like a sponge for brain-sapping fluoride.
If it’s in the ground, it’ll end up in the leaves. China, India, and Sri Lanka all tend to have higher fluoride levels in the soil and the groundwater, so tea grown there is just LOADED with the stuff.
The solution is simple. Avoid it, and drink tea grown in the U.S., Europe, or Japan instead.
