PERFECT your memory with this ‘elephant’s trick’

What did you have for breakfast this morning?

Do you remember?

We often forget minor details like this as we get older… but we shrug them off.

Those memories don’t really MATTER.

But there are plenty of faces, places, and names that ARE important… and you DO want to be able to recall quickly… and without a struggle.

Unfortunately, you can’t choose which details your brain will remember…

And which ones you’ll lose forever.

If you’re struggling to keep your precious memories under lock and key… and your mind feels like a sieve… you’ve got to FEED your brain with THIS.

Like a steel trap

Legend has it that ages ago, the people of Sri Lanka admired the local elephants for their knack of never forgetting anything.

Desperate to know the elephants’ secret for memory, they looked to what the creatures were eating.

It was the leaves of the gotu kola plant (Centella asiatica) – which, as they noticed, resemble the shape of the brain.

After trying this “brain food” themselves, the Sri Lankans began to refer to it as the much-prized “herb of longevity.”

Because it keeps your brain young… for as long as you live.

In Ayurvedic medicine, gotu kola is known as “Brahmi.” Ancient medical texts refer to it as a rejuvenating herb that can restore many parts of the mind and body.

In a 2016 study, researchers out of Oregon found that while gotu kola helped improve memory function in healthy mice of all ages, its effects were MOST remarkable on the mice that needed it the most…

The older ones.

In a study on Indonesian patients with cognitive impairment after a stroke, gotu kola extract noticeably improved memory… and in just six weeks.

The theory is that compounds in this youth-promoting herb called triterpenoids help increase blood flow to the brain.

These compounds also help repair and restore function to the hippocampus – the “memory center” of your brain.

Gotu kola is available as a loose powder, tincture, or in capsule form from several quality makers.

It’s incredibly safe and non-toxic when taken at recommended dosages… but only for six weeks at a time.

If you want to continue taking gotu kola past six weeks, be sure to take a two-week break first.
