Discovered! Miracle Oil Stops Alzheimer’s

Dear Reader,

We’ve all be told the same story from friends and relatives – an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is nothing short of a death sentence.

It’s a slow and agonizing nightmare for you and your loved ones… a nightmare that can last for years.

But what if you could protect your brain from the ravages of Alzheimer’s, and maybe even reverse the disease?

A fascinating new study out of Temple University shows it may be possible.

And it’s all thanks to a miracle oil that may be gathering dust in your cupboard right now.

Olive oil may not be part of your regular cooking routine – but if you’re serious about protecting your mind and your memory, it should be.

A brand new study shows that extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO) has the potential to work miracles on our brains as we age.

EVOO not only protects against memory loss but it also preserves your ability to learn.

Researchers from Temple University’s Lewis Katz School of Medicine studied two groups of mice – one with an EVOO-enriched diet and one without.

They found that the mice who got EVOO had better memories and were able to process more information, faster.

It’s like a magic elixir for the senior brain.

The primary ingredient in EVOO is oleic acid, which stimulates the production of a molecule that prevents damage to brain cells.

It’s even been shown to prevent cancerous proteins from forming in the brain, as well.

Additionally, the olive oil reduces inflammation in the brain and activates what’s known as the autophagy process.

That’s where the brain is able to cleanse itself of toxins and debris that can cause chronic conditions like Alzheimer’s.

Senior investigator Domenico Pratico is already setting up new experiments in order to learn more about the best way for patients to benefit from the remarkable properties of EVOO.

“We want to know whether olive oil added at a later time point in the diet can stop or reverse the disease,” he said.

But, really, there’s no reason to wait to put the wonders of EVOO to work for you.

If you or someone you love is suffering from Alzheimer’s, or you simply want to protect yourself from this very real menace, be sure to incorporate as much EVOO into your diet as possible.

You can sauté vegetables, or even use it instead of butter on bread and pasta. Click here for more delicious recipes rich in extra-virgin olive oil.
