You don’t have to suffer from dementia to experience those “senior moments” that come with aging.  

Even so, no one likes to think of their mind as “slipping.” 

But as common as it may be in this day and age, cognitive decline is NOT an inevitable part of aging. 

Let’s put it this way: Your brain can be as sharp at 70 as it was at 35. 

All sorts of factors play into your brain health… from diet to exercise to spending time with friends. 

But today, I’m going to tell you about something even easier.  

It’s a tasty drink… and it can give you a SUPER Brain in as little as 12 weeks. 

In a study published in the journal Food & Function, researchers studied 37 healthy individuals between 65 and 80 years old who had normal cognitive function. 

One group drank two cups of tart cherry juice every day for two weeks. The other group consumed a placebo drink that looked and tasted the same. 

After just 12 weeks, the people drinking the tart cherry juice experienced the following improvements in their brain health: 

  • Better memory 
  • Sustained attention 
  • And quicker reflexes 

In other words, their brain just worked BETTER! 

These benefits likely came from the numerous brain-boosting compounds in tart cherry, like polyphenols, anthocyanins, and melanin.  

Others studies show that tart cherry can also help lower your blood pressure. This can help brain health, too, because better blood pressure equals better blood flow to the brain.  

If you’re worried about the sugar content in tart cherry juice (a valid concern), you could always consider taking a tart cherry supplement instead. These are available at your local pharmacy or from online retailers like
