When scientists from Northumbria University discovered a juice that lowers not only blood pressure but also increases brainpower, they created quite a stir.
But if this is not enough – this juice is also said to improve, or even cure, dementia.
Then they watched in amazement how the blood pressure of those drinking this specific juice dropped almost instantly, and the great thing is that this juice is so common and easy to get your hands on, unlike other exotic cures from further afield.
The good news is that Montmorency tart cherry juice is everywhere – you can even find it at Walmart and Amazon.
Researchers tested the hemoglobin concentrations in their subject’s brains at different intervals following consumption. They also tested their subject’s actual brain functions.
In the first three hours after the drink, the participants experienced a drop in systolic blood pressure of up to 6 mmHg, which is enough of a reason to get people off dangerous meds for good.
They also found a definite increase in the blood flow to their brain’s cerebral cortices, suggesting it might be a solution to dementia that results from an age-related decline in blood flow to the brain.
This cherry juice contains flavonoids like anthocyanin, quercetin, and catechin, which again shows that flavonoids have major health benefits that researchers are only now starting to understand.
