Wonder Duo REVERSES Dementia
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
For years we’ve been told that dementia is irreversible.
Once you have it, you can only expect it to get worse… until all your cherished memories and even your personality are slowly swept away.
At least that’s what the mainstream says… and it looks like they were wrong again.
Because Chinese scientists say that they’ve discovered two powerful compounds that may REVERSE the brain damage caused by dementia.
And, believe it or not, they couldn’t be easier to get your hands on.
Melatonin and resveratrol are the wonder duo I’m talking about.
And recently, a group of Chinese researchers have found they can help reverse the brain damage caused by dementia.
For the study, researchers divided a group of mice suffering from dementia into two groups. One group got melatonin and resveratrol supplements and the other didn’t.
Before the trial, all the mice were suffering from cognitive problems caused by oxidative stress, inflammation and damage to the hippocampus (the “memory center” of your brain).
And after just four short weeks, the mice taking a combination of melatonin and resveratrol saw drastic improvements in cognitive function.
Even better, this powerful duo also REVERSED the damage caused by oxidative stress and inflammation and even helped to restore the balance of certain chemicals key to memory.
In short, a combo of melatonin and resveratrol could one day be the dementia breakthrough we’ve all been looking for.
Experts believe this wonder duo is so powerful because of their combined antioxidant powers.
The doses in this study were meant for mice, so they don’t translate well to humans. However, previous studies have shown that a 3 mg dose of melatonin can help improve cognitive function in folks already suffering from dementia.
For resveratrol, quality supplements often carry a dose of between 250-500 mg.
You can find both supplements at your local natural health store or through vitacost.com.
