Eight Herbs for Vitality and Healthy Aging
Alzheimer’s Disease. Just the thought of you or loved one having it can create anxiety and dread.
Which natural supplements you can take to help reduce the likelihood of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) in your family?
|Herb 1: Garlic
Herb 2: Ginkgo Biloba
Herb 3: Ginseng
Herb 4: Green Tea
Herb 5: Bilberry/Blueberry
Herb 6: Turmeric
Herb 7: Tribulus
Herb 8: Echinacea
With AD, you must be pro-active. According to researchers it takes 30 to 40 years for the causes of the brain damage in AD to occur. This means that treatments after a person has AD are less effective because of the severity of the damage already there when the symptoms appear.
Ginkgo, known as the “living fossil” is the oldest surviving species of tree on earth; individual trees live as long as 1,000 years. Its use has been traced back to ancient China where it was used for circulation, memory loss, the cardiovascular system and the lungs (asthma). Its leaves have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its constituents, flavonoids.
Studies have shown Ginkgo to be neuroprotective (protect the brain and nervous system), increase the brain circulation and help the brain energy pathways. It acts to prevent oxidative damage to the brain which means it slows down brain cell destruction. Recent studies support the theory that oxidative damage is the earliest sign of cellular and chemical changes to appear in AD.
Ginkgo promotes short term memory; it’s excellent for students on exam days. Bacopa herb promotes medium to long term memory retention. Together Gingko and Bacopa can be helpful herbs for people with Alzheimer’s, ADD and ADHD. Gingko can be used effectively when you've slipped into the annoying pattern of knowing what you want to say but are having trouble getting the thoughts out of your mouth.
What about diet and AD? At the International Longevity Conference held in Australia, Dr James Joseph reported that out of all fruits and vegetables, mainly berries (especially blueberries) and spinach are able to reverse the mental deficits associated with aging. He attributes these benefits to the antioxidant potential of blueberries, especially the anthocyanins. He recommends around ¼ to ½ cups of blueberries per day.
In upcoming newsletters we’we'll also discuss the positive influences of Bilberry herb and Turmeric on AD.
Because of its effects on increasing circulation, Ginkgo can also be used for impotence and erectile dysfunction. In addition to increasing blood and oxygen flow to the brain, it also increases blood flow to the genitals. Chinese ginseng (Panax Ginseng ) can also help increase sexual stamina.
Although Ginkgo is non-toxic and relatively free of side effects and therefore suitable for long-term treatment, some caution should be exercised. Because it increases circulation, use of Ginkgo with Warfarin, Heparin and other blood thinning drugs (like daily use of aspirin) is not recommended without trained supervision. Some studies have also recommended against the use of Ginkgo if taking anti-seizure drugs and some antidepressants.
Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention Core Herbal Supplementation
• Ginkgo 2000mg 2-3 tablets or Ginkgo 2:1 extract 2-3 mL with water per day
• Vitanox tablets (Green Tea, Turmeric, Grape Seed) (2 per day)

This yoga is more aerobic and at times more vigorous than Hatha Yoga, providing you not only with stress reduction, relaxation, inner growth and expansion, but also a good workout.
