The Common Spice That Can Dissolve Deadly Brain Plaques and Prevent Memory Loss
If you or a loved one are experiencing forgetfulness, brain fog or disturbingly frequent “senior moments,” and you’re worried that these memory lapses could be early signs of dementia or the dreaded brain disease Alzheimer’s, you’re not alone.
The latest statistics show that Alzheimer’s and other forms of significant cognitive decline are becoming increasingly common and are affecting people at younger and younger ages. In the U.S., 1 in 8 people over age 65 and as many as 1 in 2 of those over age 85 have Alzheimer’s, making it the most common type of dementia. Sadly, it’s become the 6th leading cause of death.
If you’ve ever watched a close friend or loved one experience this devastating disease, you know how terrifying and heartbreaking it can be. Alzheimer’s robs its victims not only of their memories, but also of their ability to think, to care for themselves and to perform even simple everyday tasks.
No one wants to lose their dignity and independence in this way or to become a burden to their spouse or children in their final years together.
Could President Reagan’s Painful Decade-Long Struggle Have Been Avoided?
In the early stages of his widely publicized 10-year struggle with Alzheimer’s, the late former U.S. President Ronald Reagan wrote in a public letter:
“I have recently been told that I am one of the millions of Americans who will be afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. … I only wish there was some way I could spare Nancy from this painful experience. … I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life. I know that for America there will always be a bright dawn ahead.”
Ten years later, Nancy Reagan spoke of her sadness as her husband’s mental state deteriorated:
“Ronnie’s long journey has finally taken him to a distant place where I can no longer reach him. We can’t share the wonderful memories of our 52 years together. And I think that’s the hardest part.”
More than a decade has passed since Reagan’s death, and I know that many people still feel absolutely powerless against the threat of Alzheimer’s.
Could President Reagan’s descent have been prevented with modern science? No one can say for sure, but cutting-edge research is showing that there are many extremely effective ways to keep Alzheimer’s at bay. However, most people are still completely in the dark about what they are, and unfortunately most doctors are unaware of the latest science or rely exclusively on a pill from Big Pharma as a “solution.”
Please keep reading, because the latest research from UCLA, Tufts University and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, as well as dozens of other prestigious institutions, is revealing that there are actions you can take right now to stack the odds in your favor for maintaining a healthy brain and a sharp memory throughout your entire life. And you deserve to know what they are!
The Truth About Alzheimer’s and Cognitive Decline
Scientists have identified a basic pathologic process underlying Alzheimer’s development that involves the formation of abnormal protein deposits in the brain known as beta-amyloid plaques, but they still aren’t entirely sure what causes this to happen.
The pharmaceutical drugs that have been approved to treat Alzheimer’s are only marginally effective, at best, and come with a variety of undesirable side effects, such as nausea, headaches and dizziness, that someone who is already scared and confused clearly doesn’t need to deal with.
If you try talking to your doctor about your memory loss concerns, chances are you’ll be told there’s nothing you can do, aside from taking a diagnostic test to confirm your worst fears.
But the truth is that Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline are much less inevitable than you might think. The latest research is showing that cognitive dysfunction is really a lot like heart disease and type 2 diabetes — it develops over time as a result of our habits and lifestyle. And while some of us may be genetically predisposed to have a higher risk, it does not strike at random. In other words, you CAN beat the odds!
Simple Steps for Preventing Alzheimer’s
The latest science is showing that you can significantly reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s with some simple strategies that most anyone can implement.
But with so much conflicting information out there, knowing what’s truly best for your brain can be tricky.
For example, did you know that the low-fat, low-cholesterol diet the medical establishment has promoted for years is actually disastrous for cognitive health? That’s because it can literally starve your brain of essential nutrients it needs to function!
You won’t likely hear this from your doctor, but emerging research is showing that you can protect and enhance your memory and prevent Alzheimer’s and dementia by doing things like:
- Taking specific supplements, like an extract of a common spice that has been shown in studies to dissolve the plaques associated with Alzheimer’s. More on that in a moment…
- Maximizing your intake of certain key essential fatty acids, while minimizing your consumption of carbohydrates and avoiding sources of certain toxic heavy metals
- Using simple strategies to keep stress under control, keeping your brain active by learning new things, cultivating close interpersonal relationships and maintaining a positive outlook
Don’t Let the Mainstream Medical System Make a Tragic Statistic Out of You
Without proactively caring for your brain, your chances of suffering from severe deficits in cognitive function at some point in your life are about 50/50 — no better than a flip of a coin. But if you take action now, you can change the odds of subjecting yourself — and your loved ones — to so much stress, sadness and suffering.
As Editor-in-Chief of the Live in the Now newsletter, I’ve published thousands of articles on scientifically proven natural heath strategies, many of them focusing on cognitive health. The newsletter has over 200,000 subscribers, and one of the parts of my job I enjoy most is interacting with our readers. Through emails and conversations, I’ve learned firsthand that many people are utterly confused as to how to best care for their brain as they age.
That’s why I got together with Live in the Now’s Senior Medical Editor and practicing physician, Dr. Kevin Passero, to write a book based on our over 30 years of combined knowledge and experience that provides you with a clear action plan to give you the best possible chance of avoiding Alzheimer’s and cognitive decline.
Drawing on Dr. Passero’s medical training and clinical expertise and utilizing a wide range of in-depth scientific research that I have aggregated from other leading experts in the field, we’ve created a simple, easy-to-read guide to keeping your brain healthy for life.
It’s called Save Your Brain from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, and for a limited time, you can get this 127-page book for only $19.95. I priced it this low because I want as many people as possible to benefit from it — starting with YOU!
In Save Your Brain from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Dr. Passero and I break down the research to make it easy for you to identify your cognitive health risk factors so you can protect and restore optimal brain function — with specific dietary and lifestyle changes that anyone can easily embrace.
The simple 4-week program outlined in the book will improve your memory and concentration now, while protecting your long-term brain health. And the best part is, a lifestyle that promotes long-term brain health not only strengthens neurons and combats mental decline, it also improves blood sugar regulation, cardiovascular function, mood balance and overall health.
Turmeric: So Effective, Big Pharma Wishes It Could Turn It Into a Drug
If you learn nothing else from reading this message, and even if you don’t purchase Save Your Brain from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, please remember this: A growing body of scientific evidence is indicating that a compound called curcumin, found in the curry spice turmeric, can be one of your best weapons against cognitive decline — when taken in the right form and dosage.
As I mentioned, a major trigger of memory loss is the buildup of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. As these plaques accumulate, brain cells lose their ability to function and communicate properly.
Exciting new research shows that curcumin stops the process that causes the buildup of beta-amyloid plaques in the brain! And perhaps even more significant than blocking the buildup of new plaques, a study by researchers at UCLA showed that curcumin actually helps to clear away existing plaques.
So why haven’t you heard about curcumin from your doctor or the “authorities” on Alzheimer’s prevention? Well, I won’t go into detail here, but the short answer is, mainstream medicine relies heavily on the drug “solutions” Big Pharma provides. And Big Pharma hasn’t yet figured out a way to turn curcumin into a lucrative pharmaceutical drug.
The Alzheimer’s Prevention Plan Your Doctor Won’t Give You
Curcumin is just one of the powerful brain protectors that should be part of your daily routine. In Save Your Brain from Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Dr. Passero and I give you a comprehensive plan with all the tools you need to take advantage of cutting-edge nutritional science. This way you can easily stack the deck in your favor by halting or reversing the decline in cognitive function that leads to such memory lapses as forgetting common words or the inability to recall the names of familiar faces.
We’ll also describe how leading researchers are using specific foods and nutrients to suppress brain inflammation, restore healthy cardiovascular and cerebrovascular function, and reduce the buildup of toxic compounds in the brain linked to Alzheimer’s and other cognitive health problems.
Best of all, like many of the patients Dr. Passero has worked with, there’s a good chance you’ll begin to see improvements in your mental functioning and overall health within the first week of the program.

It’s Never Too Early — or Too Late — to Start Protecting Your Brain
New research suggests that Alzheimer’s takes longer to develop than previously thought, with the onset of brain changes seen as early as your 40s. And that means there’s a large window of opportunity to take action. The best advice is to start early, and stay at it, especially if you have a family history of the disease.
But even if you’re in your 60s, 70s or 80s, you can still benefit tremendously by taking a proactive approach to protecting your brain.
The undeniable truth is that Alzheimer’s is preventable. And by taking action now, you truly can stack the odds in your favor for keeping your brain healthy, so you can enjoy the years ahead without becoming a burden to your spouse or children.
