Can Naturally Improve Our Memory?
Extract of Rosemary
Mark Moss and Lorraine Oliver at Northumbria University, Newcastle identified 1,8-cineole (a compound in rosemary) as an agent potentially responsible for cognitive performance.
It’s possible that the 1,8-cineole (and potentially other compounds) from rosemary is (are) acting on the cholinergic neurotransmitter system, and these neurons are widespread across the brain. Prospective memory has been shown in brain imaging studies to activate the frontal lobes of the brain (as well as other areas to a lesser extent). There are lots of cholinergic neurons in the frontal lobes and drugs that are used to treat dementia have been shown to enhance cholinergic activity in the frontal lobes. Put all that together and it would seem plausible that the mechanism of impact of rosemary on prospective memory would be via frontal lobe cholinergic neurons.
It is likely that rosemary does affect other parts of the brain. For example, long term memory is located in the hippocampus and this structure has the greatest density of cholinergic neurons in the brain. As rosemary improves long-term memory it seems plausible that this effect is via cholinergic neurons in the hippocampus.

Molecule of Youthfulness
Naturally Hyaluronic Acid
Would you take an anti-ageing advice from an 85-year old who has never been to the medical school before? More people from the village of Yuzurihara, Japan live beyond age 85 than do people anywhere in the entire United States, according to a report on HealthWomen.com.
Dr. Toyosuke Komori, the town’s doctor and author of five books on Yuzurihara, suggests the reason for the youthful healthiness is due to a low-iron, sticky vegetable-based diet that promotes hyaluronic acid levels in the body.
With age, the body produces less hyaluronic acid and the skin and cells lose moisture and elasticity, causing wrinkling, dry eyes, thin hair and shrinkage of cartilage. Forget botox cosmetic surgical operations – Rumba Water naturally has Anti Ageing properties because it is specially formulated with hyaluronic acid in such a way that it subtly combines with other natural ingredients that have been proven to naturally make the body resist symptoms of ageing.
Reasons To Start Using Hyaluronic Acid
Superhydrant - They hydrate dry skin.
They help reduce and prevent wrinkles
A 2014 study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology proved that hyaluronic acid skincare products were linked with less wrinkles and reduced skin sagging.
Plumps & is Safe for sensitive skin
Super-moisturizing abilities of hyaluronic acid is part of what helps it to plump the appearance of our skin, which is why hyaluronic acid is a common ingredient found in skin care products that help plump the look of skin. It is also hypo-allergenic.
Brilliant All Year!
Wonderful for restoring skin’s hydration year-round. As we head into fall and winter months, cold, dry air, and heaters zap our skin’s moisture. In summer, heat and sun exposure totally dry us out.
Health Benefits of Lemons
Hidden Health Secrets of Lemons
Tremella fuciformis mushroom is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a tonic for overall immune health. It has enjoyed popularity for centuries by the women of China and Japan who believed it had value because of its ability to help improve the complexion and overall appearance of the skin.*
Tremella may help maintain the appearance and texture of the skin by helping the body maintain the production of hyaluronic acid. The production of hyaluronic acid normally declines with age.*
The function of hyaluronic acid in the body is, amongst other things, to bind water and to lubricate movable parts in the body such as joints and muscles. It is also thought to be important in maintaining the suppleness and structure of the skin. Its consistency and tissue friendliness also allows it to be used in skin care products, and is said to be an excellent moisturizer.*
Combine With Honey to Alleviate Eczema Troubles
The two biggest are lemons’ strong antibacterial, antiviral, and immune-boosting powers and their use as a weight loss aid because lemon juice is a digestive aid and liver cleanser.
Put Insomnia to Rest
Helps reduce anxiety and promote sleep. In a recent double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 18 healthy volunteers received two separate single doses of a standardized lemon balm extract (300 mg and 600 mg) or placebo for 7 days. The 600 mg dose of lemon balm increased mood and significantly increased calmness and alertness.
Loaded With Vitamin C
The healing power of lemons works both internally, by supplying urgently required vitamin C to your defence cells, and externally, through the application of its antiviral properties to the virus on the mucous membranes in the nose and throat.
