Improve Brain Function With Sage

By Tom Herrin


Who would have ever thought that something we use to enhance the flavor of food would be of any real benefit to our overall health? We all know that some foods are healthier for us than others, but we seldom think much about other things we take into our bodies. We use spices for all kinds of things and even refer to them as phrases such as some things being the spice of life. When we use terms such as this, we certainly acknowledge the impact that spices can have on us. When it comes to health, some spices have shown to be pretty useful, and many have quite a history of success.


Sage May Be a Powerful Brain Booster


Many people suffer from mental loss as they age or experience some kind of illness. There seems to be a connection between the use of sage and the improvement or preservation of mental abilities. Recent studies have found that age may help to support improvement in memory and function, particularly in people with Alzheimer's disease. It seems that Alzheimer's is accompanied by a drop in the chemical acetylcholine. Sage can somehow interfere with the breakdown of this chemical. Studies have also indicated that even healthy people of varying ages may have mental benefits from sage,


Peppermint Is a Standard for Many


You have probably had peppermint served with some kind of fast food before. For the most part, you may have just thought it was for a fresh breath. This could be the reason, but it also serves to settle many stomach issues. This can include irritable bowel syndrome. At our home, we often use either peppermint candies or drink peppermint herbal tea whenever we have an unsettled stomach. Peppermint is used successfully as aromatherapy as well. 


Garlic Does More Than Smell Bad


Many cultures have used garlic for a variety of health purposes for years. Some believed it helped drive away bad diseases. It actually has shown promise when it is used to help combat some common illnesses such as a cold. There is good evidence that it can be a great support for problems with the heart and circulatory system. It is believed to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure. According to one study, it is as useful as taking some blood pressure medications.
