Dark Grain SLAMS the Brakes on Alzheimer’s
The most precious thing each of us has is our memory. From school days, your first kiss, to your child being born… These pieces of your past are your most cherished treasures.
And I’m willing to bet you’d do anything to keep from losing them.
It all boils down to keeping your brain healthy and slowing down cognitive decline.
Now, there’s no cure for Alzheimer’s. But there IS a dark grain that can prevent cognitive decline and put the BRAKES on Alzheimer’s disease.
A number one indicator of Alzheimer’s is a build-up of these proteins that form on your brain called amyloid-B plaques.
These disrupt the cell-to-cell communication channels in your brain. It’s like a car that’s been detoured — it takes you twice as long to get to your destination. And sometimes you get completely lost.
These build-ups will also eventually destroy your brain cells, leading to the onset of Alzheimers.
A study published in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine found that brown rice REDUCES cognitive dysfunction in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s.
Not only that, it also reduced the levels of amyloid-B in the animal’s brains.
The most popular form of rice is the soft, white grains that go alongside savory dishes. However, it’s unrefined form is brown in color and takes longer to cook.
But the extra time it takes in the kitchen is made up for by it’s incredible health benefits. Brown rice is rich in fiber and vitamins like B, iron, magnesium and selenium. These nutrients including ferulic acid, which has antioxidant properties, are believed to stop the formation of amyloid-B in the brain.
The B-vitamins also prevent blood homocysteine (a chemical found in your blood) levels from shooting upward. High levels of this contributes to a HIGHER risk of Alzheimer’s.
Whether or not you’ve noticed your memory occasionally slipping, the time to start protecting your brain is now.
Add this power-packed grain to your dinner as a side dish or top it with a stir fry as part of a main course.
It’s the easiest — and most delicious — way to keep your memories and your mind fully intact.
