Spice Rack Favorite BOOSTS Brain Power

With time comes a greater appreciation for the value of a sound mind and a healthy brain.

Because if you lose your brain power, you lose your past, your personality, and eventually your freedom.

The only options your conventional doctor will likely recommend for memory or learning issues are potentially harmful medications or impossible-to-follow exercise routines. He may even suggest you should expect a little slippage at your age.

But let me tell you right now, that’s NONSENSE.

Because there’s a powerful substance in your kitchen that can put your brain on the pathway to better memory and quicker learning.

To get your hands on this brain booster, head straight to your spice rack.

Because I’m talking about cinnamon.

New research finds this baking favorite has powerfully positive effects on your brain.

The study, published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience was a meta-analysis. It combined data from 40 studies focusing on cinnamon’s potential health benefits.

And researchers confirmed the natural antioxidant has a bunch, including:

  • battling inflammation
  • boosting immunities
  • fighting cancer

But the spice’s benefits don’t end there. The researchers found the bioactive compounds eugenol, cinnamaldehyde, and cinnamic acid benefit brain function.

They were linked to improvements in cognitive abilities, including memory and learning.

And, of course, that kind of mind makeover is EXACTLY what our aging brains need.

It’s easy to slip more cinnamon into your daily diet. For example, the spice is delicious in tea, coffee, and oatmeal. Or you can take a supplement instead.

For the best results, you only need to shoot for two grams (less than half a teaspoon), the amount used in one of the studies.

And another thing…

Here’s what else we’ve been chatting about this week in Living Well Daily:

POTENT Combo Fights Frailty

With each passing year, your risk of becoming frail grows. But scientists have discovered a dynamic duo to fight back.

  • Your goal should be to AVOID frailty as long as possible. New research revealed a combo that can help.

  • Signs of cognitive decline and early dementia can be so subtle you hardly notice them at first.
  • Researchers say you can significantly slash your risk without resorting to risky drugs.

Stunning Coffee BENEFIT Revealed [STUDY]

  • There’s plenty of research highlighting the BENEFITS of drinking coffee.
  • Faulty research is to blame for the FALSE belief that drinking coffee spikes blood pressure.
  • A new study finds that not only is coffee safe for your heart it could SUPPORT heart health.

“Filter Fix” STOPS Viruses in Their Tracks

Viruses don’t stand a chance when you fix THIS issue in all indoor spaces where people gather.

  • Fighting back against viruses like COVID takes multiple solutions.
  • Masks, distancing, and vaccines still help reduce the risk of infections, including COVID.
  • One measure that has the potential to slash the risk of viral transmission is constantly being overlooked.

P.S. Cinnamon isn’t the only spice-rack favorite with health benefits. If you’re battling autoimmune issues, THIS delicious baking spice could be the peace treaty for the war in your body.
