Researchers have discovered that drinking a particular brain-boosting beverage can restore your depleted intellectual abilities, improve your mental focus, banish fuzzy cognition and even change the way your neurons fire off signals to each other.

A few weeks ago (Issue #534) I wrote about the role infections play in Alzheimer’s disease. Much of the focus of that article was on herpes viruses. The herpes-dementia link is an important enough discovery to visit again, and go into in greater depth. For one thing, it may finally move the pharmaceutical companies to [...]

This Powerful Air Purifier Comes with Other Brain-Boosting Benefits, Too!

You may remember learning in school about the reciprocal relationship animals (including us) have with plants. We inhale oxygen and exhale CO2 (carbon dioxide.) Plants “inhale” carbon dioxide and send out oxygen. That means we need plants as much as they need us. But plants do even more for us than create oxygen. They can [...]

Grown in the warm, marshy wetlands of India, Pakistan and other Asian countries, this creeping herb has been prescribed by traditional Ayurvedic (Indian) health practitioners for thousands of years.

In the field of Alzheimer’s research, it’s a million-dollar question whether an infection is the root cause of Alzheimer’s disease. When I say “million-dollar question” I mean it literally. Leslie Norins, a physician and medical publisher, is offering a million dollar “Challenge Award” to any researcher who can provide “persuasive proof the ‘Alzheimer’s germ’ is [...]

Environmental scientist Barbara Maher was clearly surprised and alarmed by the results of a study she led. She described the findings as "dreadfully shocking." She said it was “a discovery finding, and...a potentially very important environmental risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease.” Her concern centers on a metallic industrial toxin that's been found in higher amounts [...]

Your Eyes Hold the Key to Brain Health and Memory

Poems often proclaim the eyes to be a direct window to the soul. Medical researchers are more prosaic, but they make much the same point without the poetry. We now understand that the eyes provide a direct view into the health of your brain. Plus, you can actually use your eyes to improve your memory. [...]

When you get hit by a 255-pound offensive tackle up to 50 times a game, it's bound to inflict physical harm. That's exactly what brain scans of hundreds of active and retired football players have found -- clear evidence these helmet-to-helmet blows cause damage.1 But you don't have to be an NFL footballer to experience [...]
