Thomas Jefferson’s “Super Brain” Secret

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

He wrote the Declaration of Independence. Some people even say he helped bring macaroni and cheese to America (the REAL kind).

But as we take a moment to celebrate President’s Day, it looks like Thomas Jefferson has left us with one final gift.

Because there’s one amazing herbal remedy that Jefferson prized so much that he grew it himself.

And research now proves it can give you a sharper brain — and even a better memory — in as little as six hours flat!

It’s no secret that Thomas Jefferson was a genius. Right until his final days, he was creating new inventions (like the dumbwaiter) or improving everything from clocks to farm equipment around his home.

But could Jefferson have been getting a little bit of help?

Historians say he had one of the greatest natural brain-boosters around growing right on his Monticello estate.

It’s American ginseng, and you may have heard it can help control blood sugar and even kill cancer cells. Jefferson valued it so much that he even set aside a garden to grow it.

And now studies show it can help give you a better brain in as little as six hours.

In an international study published in Psychopharmacology, 32 healthy adults took American ginseng supplements and went through a battery of cognitive tests just six hours later.

And it was like they’d been given the answers to the tests!

The volunteers experienced significant improvements in their “working memories,” such as their ability to recall words and numbers. They even had faster reaction times!

And these results didn’t take days or weeks… just hours!

Aside from being a powerful antioxidant, ginseng seems to work by increasing blood flow — especially to where you need it most, like your brain.

Better still, American ginseng is incredibly easy to get your hands on. You can pick up a month’s supply for less than $10 at

And who knows? American ginseng just may get you tinkering around your house — or your workbench — again!

Live well,
