Conquer Aging With This Miracle Sap

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about Alzheimer’s… or heart disease… or even diabetes.

Lots of these diseases of aging can be traced back to one thing — inflammation.

Keeping yourself healthy and disease-free in your golden years is all about keeping inflammation in check.

And University of Rhode Island researchers may have just found a way to do it.

You see, the sweet sap of a common tree could be the all-natural inflammation buster we’ve all been searching for.

And it couldn’t be easier to get your hands on it.

I’m talking about 100 percent pure maple syrup.

For years, scientists have known that real maple syrup is loaded with nutrients, minerals and antioxidants that can protect your body from dangerous oxidative damage and even shield your brain from the dangerous proteins that cause Alzheimer’s.

More recently, researchers from the University of Rhode Island have discovered this sweet treat can also greatly reduce disease-causing inflammation.

Pure maple syrup does this because it contains a special fiber called inulin, which helps to balance the bacteria in your gut. Inulin is a prebiotic, which encourages the “good” bacteria in your gut to grow and can help stop your body’s inflammatory response.

This means by simply enjoying a little maple syrup every day, you can stop inflammation in its tracks and help ward off all diseases!

And if you really want to get the extra health boost, try the darker syrups (like Grade B), which have higher levels of antioxidants and nutrients.

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.

Live well,
