Beat Alzheimer's With This DELICIOUS Treat
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s can leave you feeling completely helpless.
And the mainstream treatments are so worthless that you’d be better off using that expensive bottle of pills as a paperweight.
You deserve something that will give you a fighting chance against this dreaded disease.
And Canadian researchers may have just found it.
These scientists have discovered that the sap of an ordinary tree could be the Alzheimer’s breakthrough we’ve all been looking for.
And the best part — it’s tasty, cheap and may already be sitting in your fridge.
I’m talking about maple syrup. (Big surprise, aye?)
And while this sweet treat may not be top of mind when you’re thinking of healthy foods — it should be.
Maple syrup (the REAL stuff) is jampacked with nutrients, minerals and antioxidants that can protect your body from dangerous oxidative damage — one of the key drivers of disease.
Even better, maple syrup has been shown to help protect your brain and could save your precious memories.
Recent research from the University of Toronto shows that maple syrup extract can help stop the clumping of beta amyloid and tau — two proteins that lead to Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Another study found that maple syrup extract protected microglial brain cells whose loss is linked to Alzheimer’s and other neurological issues.
Slowing down these proteins and protecting these cells could stop Alzheimer’s in its tracks.
Even better, a different study found that maple syrup extract extended the life spans of worms, which are commonly used in aging studies.
This means by simply adding this delicious and rich syrup to your daily routine, you could boost your brain and even extend your life!
But be warned — not all syrups are created equal. Most “breakfast syrups” are loaded with high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors. So be sure to skip the substitutes and go for the 100 percent-pure maple syrup.
And if you really want to get the extra health boost, try the darker syrups (like Grade B), which have higher levels of antioxidants.
Additionally, be sure to use your 100 percent-pure maple syrup wisely — it’s still a sugar. So instead of dousing a stack of carb-filled pancakes in it, try adding just a teaspoon to your coffee or tea.
You can find pure maple syrup at most grocery stores and health food retailers.
Maple syrup also makes a great marinade ingredient. Today I’m going to share a recipe for a basic maple syrup marinade you can use on any meat or vegetable for a pop of sweetness.
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- ½ cup avocado oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
- 1 tsp mustard powder
- 1 tsp fresh thyme
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- In a container with lid, combine vinegar, maple syrup, mustard powder, garlic, thyme, salt and pepper. Secure lid and shake vigorously.
- Add avocado oil and shake again until combined
- Marinate meat or vegetables for up to 24 hours before cooking.
