 “Holy Herb” HALTS Alzheimer’s Disease!

Alzheimer’s disease is perhaps the most devastating age-related disease around… a memory-robbing condition that wreaks havoc on your mind and saps your independence. 

Mainstream doctors don’t have a thought of how to stop it… 

But thanks to a recent discovery out of California’s Salk Institute, there’s finally new HOPE for suffering seniors… a way to naturally REVERSE symptoms of age-related memory loss and Alzheimer’s! 

Now, before I tell you about this incredible discovery and its brain-saving potential, let’s talk about Alzheimer’s disease. 

While most people think of memory loss as the hallmark symptom of this disease, there is actually a brutal CASCADE – seven whole stages! — of brain changes that lead to death. 

Alzheimer’s disease affects each person differently, but it generally interferes with memory, language, problem-solving, thinking, personality, and movement as it progresses. 

Most folks aren’t diagnosed until stage four, when real mental impairment sets in… and after that, many people only live between four to eight years. 

In the final heart-wrenching stage, patients lose their ability to communicate entirely and require around-the-clock assistance… 

But as I mentioned, NOW there is HOPE 

For decades, native Californians have been using yerba santa (Eriodictyon californiucum), known as the “Holy Herb,” in everything from teas for respiratory ailments to poultices for sore muscles. 

Its potential has been largely OVERLOOKED by mainstream science… 

But in revolutionary new research – published in the journal Redox Biology — Salk Institute scientists examined the healthful properties of 400 plant extracts and identified an unexpected standout: yerba santa’s most active component, a flavonoid called sterubin. 

Then, researchers tested sterubin and other plant compounds on the brain cells of mice… and found that sterubin had potent anti-inflammatory effects on brain cells known as microglia.   

This is particularly EXCITING because recent genetic research has IMPLICATED microglia in virtually every neurodegenerative disorder — including the progression of Alzheimer’s disease! 

And the brain-boosting potential doesn’t stop there… 

Researchers determined that sterubin also DETOXES the brain’s excess iron, which is known to damage nerve cells and lead to neurodegenerative diseases. 

Next, scientists plan to test sterubin on animal models of Alzheimer’s disease to determine its true potential and test for toxicity… 

But you can get started SAVING YOUR BRAIN right now! 

Yerba santa is available in various forms, including loose teas, extracts, tinctures, and even smudge sticks (used by some cultures to bless or cleanse certain people and spaces). If you are already taking Alzheimer’s medication, consult with your doctor before supplementing. 

Plus, there are other steps you can take to naturally preserve your cognitive abilities. These can be summed up in two words: DIET and EXERCISE. 

Eating a Mediterranean diet (high in healthy fats and lean meats) has been shown to protect your brain, and a recent study found that at least 30 minutes of brisk exercise per day can help improve memory.
