I frequently discuss the latest vitamin research with my patients to ensure that they are getting the maximum daily allowance.
Neuroscience 2013, held November 9-13, 2013 in San Diego, was the site of a presentation by Susan Farr, PhD of Saint Louis University of a benefit for extracts of rosemary and spearmint in an animal model of memory loss. The extracts contain antioxidants which help reduce aging-associated oxidative stress, which is believed to contribute to cognitive impairment that occurs among the aged.
The greatest gift you have as a human being is your intelligence… your “brain power.” Your ability to reason, to solve problems and, most important, to remember – is what makes you the individual that you are.
I’ve mentioned to you a few times how your heart and brain health are connected and that what’s good health practices for one benefits the other. That’s why, as a cardiologist, I also look for new research that benefits the brain as well as the heart. Recently, I came across some new research about Vitamin E that I’d like to pass on to you as it is especially helpful in protecting your memory. And the positive side effect is that it also benefits your heart! Is Your Memory Getting The Full Benefit of Vitamin E? You may not know this, but […]
If you’re having problems with those senior moment memory glitches, wouldn’t it be great if you could just smell something regularly to improve them? Well, with the results of new research out of Wales, you may be able to do just that. I’d like to share with you the findings of that research using an ancient, common spice believed to boost memory. Just by smelling it… Rosemary: Just The Smell of it Boosts Your Memory A few decades ago, aromatherapy became the big thing on the New Age, natural health scene. Practitioners were having their clients diffuse essential oils and […]
Scientists have for the first time discovered what effect multiple, rather than just single, foods with anti-inflammatory effects have on healthy individuals. The results of a diet study show that bad cholesterol was reduced by 33 per cent, blood lipids by 14 per cent, blood pressure by 8 per cent and a risk marker for blood clots by 26 per cent. A marker of inflammation in the body was also greatly reduced, while memory and cognitive function were improved. “The results have exceeded our expectations! I would like to claim that there has been no previous study with similar effects […]

Have you noticed some “senior moments” occurring here and there? You forgot what you came into a room for or you draw blanks on someone’s name.

And it doesn’t take any more time than taking a pill… Ward off Senior Moments with This Common Spice As you get older, your body’s metabolic processes don’t work as efficiently as they did when you were younger. One of these processes is […]
I make a point to read a lot of research findings on many common foods and nutritional products that will boost heart health. But, many people don’t know that your heart health is directly linked to your brain health. As such, I came across the findings of a recent study that showed that a common food already found to boost heart health a few years ago is now being credited for improving brain health – specifically memory. Let me tell you about it. The Heart Doctor’s Rx for Good Brain Health It’s generally accepted amongst doctors and medical researchers that […]
The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published the results of an analysis of a trial which found that supplementation with folic acid and vitamin B12 improved immediate and delayed memory in older men and women. The study analyzed data from a trial of 900 participants with elevated psychological distress who received 400 micrograms of folic acid plus 100 micrograms vitamin B12, or a placebo for two years. Cognitive function was assessed at the beginning of the study and at 12 and 24 months. While orientation, attention, verbal memory and processing speed remained unchanged, greater improvements from baseline in immediate and delayed recall […]
