If you’re looking for a simple way to sharpen your memory, strengthen your brain, and improve your overall health, Dr. Fred Pescatore has just the thing…
It’s a traditional Chinese remedy called Panax notoginseng, an herbal cousin to the more famous Asian ginseng.
As Dr. Fred Pescatore explains in his Alzheimer’s Prevention and Treatment Plan, one landmark study from the University of Michigan found that Panax notoginseng has antioxidant effects which may be neuroprotective in neurological disorders.
They tested Panax notoginseng’s ability to protect brain cells from oxidative stress. And not only did it protect brain cells from harmful reactive oxygen species, or ROS—it actually led to a 23 percent reduction in brain cell death.
“This is major stuff.” Dr. Pescatore adds, “We’re talking protection from the damage caused by Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and traumatic brain injury—not to mention ‘everyday’ damage caused by oxidative stress and the resulting ROS.”
But that’s not all. Dr. Pescatore details four more studies that focus on Panax notoginseng and the brain…
- Chinese researchers studied the effect of Panax on toxic beta-amyloid plaque build-up—a so-called “hallmark” of many Alzheimer’s cases. The Chinese trial showed that Panax can stop beta-amyloid from destroying brain cells.
- In a study from the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease and the Aging Brain at Columbia University, scientists found that a Panax extract strengthened brain cells against beta-amyloid. The extract also improved the “learning performance” of mice bred to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
- In another trial, researchers gave a Panax extract to mice who were bred to develop Alzheimer’s. At the end of the study, the mice had less beta-amyloid and less mental decline compared to mice that weren’t given Panax.
And as impressive as these results are, the benefits of Panax notoginseng aren’t limited to your brain.
For instance, in one study, people who took 1,350 milligrams of Panax notoginseng per day for a month experienced improved endurance, enhanced aerobic capacity, and lower overall blood pressure.
And a Chinese study showed that Panax notoginseng significantly improved kidney function—a particularly important finding because the rate of kidney disease in the U.S. is skyrocketing.
Other benefits of Panax notoginseng include its natural blood-thinning capabilities, as well as overall anti-inflammatory qualities.
“Bottom line,” Dr. Pescatore says, “Panax notoginseng is a powerful, protective tool, for your brain and the rest of your body. I recommend 100 milligrams per day.”
You can also enjoy Panax in the form of tea—but not before bedtime. This stimulating ginseng can disrupt your sleep like a shot of espresso.
