What are the best memory enhancers

The strongest natural antioxidant smoothie that beats any cleansing possible

The health benefits of turmeric are numerous. It has strong anti-inflammatory effects, powerful antioxidant, fights depression, natural heart healers, brain function and memory enhancers. Studies have also shown that one of the compounds in turmeric can also help prevent Alzheimer's disease.

Health benefits aside, it's also one of the nicest spices around. I always keep a glass on hand to toss rice dishes, chicken dishes - and now my breakfast smoothie.

Turmeric goes wonderfully with citrus fruits, and this smoothie is perfect when you are at the door to face the day.
