Vanilla helps in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease
Due to its unique flavor, vanilla is a spice widely used in cooking to enhance recipes, but, in the form of tea, it can be an excellent natural remedy.
Thanks to a substance called vanillin, vanilla acts as an antioxidant, helping to renew cells, preventing premature aging and the development of some diseases.
By preventing cell aging – including neurons – and diseases that compromise brain function, vanilla tea is effective in combating Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disease that causes forgetfulness and behavior disorders. According to the Brazilian Society of Neurology, approximately 0.2% of people over 60 years old suffer from this disease, which generally evolves quickly and leads to death.
