By the year 2020 senility and Alzheimer’s disease will be affecting more than 14 million citizens of the United States. The baby boomers and significant advancements in medicine have led to the fact that a large portion of the American population is actually in the senior age group. It is a common thing to live to a ripe old age, so now there are ways of focusing on the quality of life. The human brain needs to be nourished properly like all the other organs in the human body. It needs to be free of toxins, and it requires significant amounts of rest and exercise so that it can function properly. There are certain herbal remedies which can be of great help when it comes to prevention and sometimes even treatment or reversal of memory loss. It is known fact that the brain both consumes and processes significant amounts of oxygen. That is why it produces abundant amounts of free radicals which make it very susceptible to oxidative damage. The normal process of the metabolism produces unstable molecules of oxygen which cause damage to the cells in the human body. All anti aging products include different types of antioxidant substances.
Gingko is one of the best herbal remedies when it comes to memory loss. It was found in China in the 18th century and it is also sometimes referred to as duck foot tree. It may also be of great help for all those who suffer from hearing loss, sight loss and poor circulation. Gingko is also very efficient in thinning the blood. Lycium is another potent herbal remedy, sometimes referred to as lycii berries or Chinese wolfberry. It has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for more than 20 centuries. It is a very potent antioxidant, which means that it fights off the free radicals and reduces the amount and severity of damage they cause on the cellular level in the human body. Lycii berries are very efficient in relieving cough, reducing fever, improving the blood circulation, reducing high blood pressure and relieving wheezing. They can also be used for the treatment of blurred vision, ringing in the ears and dizziness. Other important herbal remedies which contain many beneficial ingredients and possess very potent antioxidant properties include blueberries, rosemary, blackberries, rutin, hawthorn, periwinkle and shilajit. Fish oil is also an excellent remedy for all those who suffer from memory loss because it is immensely rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids.
