Discover the Simple Natural Solution to Lifelong Cognitive Health

Are you concerned about maintaining the health of your brain as you age?

You’re not alone. Losing one’s memory and mental abilities to cognitive decline is something we all fear, and the current statistics on the prevalence of cognitive decline in the western world are not pretty.

By age 65, sadly 1 in 8 adults in the western world will suffer from severe cognitive decline, and by age 80, an astonishing 1 in 2 will.

Researchers have been working for years to develop an effective treatment. But one “miracle” drug after another has failed to live up to its promises, and it’s becoming more and more apparent
that pharmaceuticals are not the solution. Unfortunately, the medical establishment is so narrowly focused on finding an elusive “cure” that scientifically proven prevention strategies are often ignored.

I’m Joshua Corn, Editor -in-­Chief of Live in the Now, one of the fastest growing natural health publications in the USA. My passion for natural health drives me to seek the truth about the causes of health problems and to educate people on alternative solutions that are both safe and effective.

Please keep reading, because I’ll tell you about an amazingly effective way to protect your brain from the ravages of cognitive decline and boost your thinking and memory abilities quickly, naturally and safely.

Nature’s Brain-Protecting Breakthrough

There are a number of natural brain protectors out there, but did you know that one herb has shown more promise when it comes to supporting your neurological system than any other medical finding to date? It’s a scientific fact that ‘curcumin’, an antioxidant compound found in the root of the turmeric plant, is one of the most powerful natural brain protecting substances on the planet! It continues to amaze scientists with its remarkable cognitive health benefits.

You may be familiar with turmeric as the bright yellow spice that is commonly found in curry powder. Turmeric has a long history as a healing herb and culinary spice in India. Interestingly, India has the highest per capita consumption of turmeric AND the lowest incidence of cognitive decline worldwide!

Here is a short video by Dr Oz:

Your Brain on Curcumin

The hallmark process associated with certain types of cognitive decline is the formation in the brain of abnormal protein structures called beta-amyloid plaques. That’s why I was excited to read about a landmark clinical trial involving people with severe cognitive decline that measured the effects of curcumin. Amazingly, the participants taking curcumin had significantly higher levels of dissolved plaque in their blood compared to those in the placebo group.

This study showed that curcumin has the ability to effectively pass into the brain, bind to beta- amyloid plaques and assist the body in their break down. Curcumin is one of the only substances known to have such a profound protective effect on the brain.

The Incredible Health Benefits of Curcumin

  • Protects brain cells from ageing
  • Boosts overall cognitive function
  • Promotes healthy cardiovascular function
  • Supports healthy mood balance
  • Boosts detoxification and liver health
  • Increases memory retention and clarity
  • Supports joint and muscle health
  • Fights body-wide inflammation
  • Promotes a healthy digestive system
  • Supports natural weight loss

Curcumin Combats Dangerous Inflammation

You may have heard about the dangers of “silent” chronic inflammation. It’s been discussed by Dr. Oz and has made headlines in publications such as Newsweek and Time. It’s important for you to know that slow-growing, body-wide inflammation is rapidly becoming recognised as the root cause of the development of cognitive decline, as well as a wide range of serious health problems.

Unfortunately, most people don’t do anything until the initial symptoms, such as muscle aches and joint discomfort, appear. When this happens, their gut reaction often is to go see a doctor, who is unlikely to correctly diagnose the problem, and more than likely will prescribe drugs that are far from safe and only provide short-term benefits.

But the initial symptoms of pain are just the beginning.

If left unchecked, chronic inflammation can damage your body in many ways. One of the worst examples of this is cognitive decline, which can ravage your memory and severely impact your quality of life in what should be your golden years.

Here are 7 ways chronic inflammation can damage your body:

  1. Memory loss and cognitive decline.
  2. Increased cardiovascular risk.
  3. Joint pain and loss of mobility.
  4. Abnormal growth of healthy cells
  5. Accelerated skin ageing and wrinkles
  6. Compromised digestive function
  7. Weight gain 
  8. Loss of muscle tone

Cutting-edge science is showing that curcumin is one of the most powerful, natural anti- inflammatory ever studied. Curcumin is so effective because it is a potent inhibitor of the body’s most powerful inflammation-causing chemical, called Nf-kappa beta. Miraculously, curcumin has been shown in numerous studies to tame joint pain and muscle soreness, protect the brain, support cardiovascular health, bolster immunity and more. If you have a lingering health problem that no doctor can resolve, you may be suffering from chronic inflammation and curcumin may be just the natural solution you’ve been looking for.

How to Get the Most Out of Curcumin

Although you may be able to find high quality turmeric powder at your local market, it’s very difficult to verify its purity and potency. Plus, it’s almost impossible to incorporate therapeutic amounts of curcumin into your diet on a daily basis as a spice. So, to put it simply, a high-quality curcumin supplement is your best bet!

However, not all curcumin supplements are created equal. Unfortunately, most supplements out there don’t have the necessary doses and components to get the job done. If you take the wrong supplement, you’ll end up not only wasting money, but missing out on an incredible opportunity to protect your brain and keep harmful inflammation at bay.

Here’s what you can expect:

  • Protection for your brain and cognitive function
  • Improved mental clarity and memory retention
  • Better mood balance and more energy
  • A healthier heart and more balanced cholesterol
  • Fewer aches and pains and less stiffness
  • Smoother, more youthful-looking skin
  • Support for liver health and detoxification
  • Antioxidant protection against free radicals
  • An overall increased sense of vitality

The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

The Amazing Benefits of Turmeric

As a professional businessman who faced a major heath challenge, when just at the point of retirement with an expected future of enjoying the fruits of my diligent work in a career that I truly loved and enjoyed. I would like to share my story with you and the related  experiences I had in finding the cause and a subsequently a solution, just one part of which, took me to begin using an ancient far eastern herb called turmeric, a natural yet versatile remedy for many ailments, which goes back many thousands of years.

History

The history of Turmeric goes way back to the Ryukyu Dynasty and was found growing in the hills of a tiny Japanese tropical island called Okinawa. At the time the Island was part of the Chinese empire, and as many of you are well aware, turmeric spread out across the continent of Asia and was used as a spice herb in many far eastern recipes. One that many of you will recognise is the famous Indian dishes of ‘masala ‘ and ‘tandori’, both of which use turmeric to not only taste great, but notable for the rich ‘orange’ appearance as well.

I’d like to explain the health benefits of curcumin, the active ingredient in the autumn turmeric plant.

Benefits

Believe it or not, the curcumin from the turmeric plant, has been used for a long, long time! I mean it’s been used for over 4000 years in Asia, as the all-natural, almighty cure, medicine and relatively recently scientists in the Western world have  started to back up the incredible health benefits with over 9,000 medical research studies.

The first benefit is that it is highly anti-inflammatory, it is 100% safe and an all-natural pain relief remedy.

It relieves chronic joint pain, back pain, neck and muscle pain and even as I was to discover, invaluable for relieving the chronic and debilitating pain of arthritis.
After all it was the recommended use of turmeric, (prepared correctly) which was the turning point, in my own personal major health challenge, just 4 short years ago.

Another Benefit is that it can not only help people with Alzheimer’s by reducing the fever inside the brain, but turmeric  can even prevent Alzheimer’s , because it helps  improve the brain function memory level and everything from mood changes to the depression that occurs in patients with that condition.

Turmeric really is a powerful anti-inflammatory

Yet another major benefit, is that turmeric boosts the body’s antioxidant mechanism.
That means the ‘free radicals’ responsible for rapid aging, body decay, breakdown and damage to DNA, are effectively removed by the active ingredient curcumin from the autumn turmeric plant.

Everybody knows that heart disease is the biggest killer in the world, well turmeric (curcumin) works for heart disease, it’s known to clean up your arteries and if you have plaque in your arteries, turmeric will clean up and eventually eliminate that plaque.

Turmeric works to reduce high blood pressure and high cholesterol as well

Turmeric is also a great natural remedy for type 2 diabetes and works by balancing the blood sugar levels in the body.

There are many other benefits in turmeric, it supports detoxification, it’s an antibacterial, it will fight against colds, coughing and influenza, it’s a home remedy for asthma.

Recently several studies have shown, that turmeric can decrease cancer cells, by reducing and eliminating the damaged cells.

Many people have discovered that it also helps to break down fat cells, thereby helping you
with weight loss.

Think it sounds too good to be true?

I suggest you check out the benefits for yourself!  I did, and it has certainly helped me to maintain and improve my chronic auto-immune condition.

Thank you, and I do hope you enjoyed reading this post.
