Blender’s Notes Alzheimer’s:
Steep Me Self-help Tea combinations are a great way to get health benefits outside of the standard tea leaf. This combination of teas and herbs has come about with the long and extensive research into how Alzheimer’s has evolved and the ability to diagnose early. Plus, this combination of herbs works well in prevention of this debilitating disease and keeping the brain healthy and strong while helping to enhance mood stability, rest, and energy levels. These herbs will provide nutrition and are useful for the treatment of complications that may result from this diagnosis.
We based this tea on Chinese Ti Kuan Yin Oolong and Japanese Gyokuro Green tea because drinking at least one cup a day, yielded the most brain health benefits. Both green tea and oolong tea were found to be protective, but they also need to be brewed from tea leaves for the most effectiveness. The natural properties of tea are attributed to the bioactive compounds in the leaves, including catechins, theaflavins, and L-theanine. The flavonoids in the tea leaves have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that prevent vascular damage in the brain. Lions Mane has been included because it contains two special compounds that can stimulate the growth of brain cells: hericenones and erinacines and they have found that it may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease. Cat’s Claw is used today as an herbal treatment for Alzheimer’s Disease by helping remove the plaque and tangles buildup that is a part of the aging process. These areas of plaque and tangles are believed to play a role in the devastating degeneration of cognition and memory that is the symptomatic hallmark of dementia.
Gingko was added to promote healthy circulation and brain function. It has been found to be effective for reducing cognitive decline among aging adults, including memory loss and forgetfulness. Ginkgo aids the ability to concentrate and focus, and it can help stabilize symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. This herb is great for depression which is a common thread for patients of this diagnosis. Rhodiola was added for its anti-inflammatory actions. It has displayed neuroprotective properties along with increasing learning abilities and memory. Some may even experience help in treating some general age-related difficulties such as mobility troubles. Lemon Balm and Chamomile are used to improve mood and to assist relaxation. It can even help with cognitive function and reduced agitation for Alzheimer sufferers. Sage, Ashwagandha, and Ginseng are all used to help with and enhance cognition and circulation in the brain because of their strong restorative powers. Some studies show that Ginseng can even improve various dementia-related cognitive deficits. Finally, we added Turmeric because it is such an impressive anti-inflammatory, and many deficits can be caused by inflammation.

Latest Research from Stir Magazine April 2019
Tea and Alzheimer’s
A recent study convincingly shows preventative and curative properties of EGCG found in high concentrations in green tea, on Alzheimer-like neurodegeneration in mice. It carefully builds on
more than a decade of research on EGCG. Its new and exciting contribution is to open up a pathway towards the use of a combination of today’s botanical compounds in reducing the risk of and spread of this dreadful malady rather than rely on a “magic bullet” pharmaceutical that at best will take ten years and $1.5 billion to develop. The study confirms that the rich store of antioxidants that green tea is packed with has potential medical powers. EGCG – and carrots– are part of prevention and possibly cure. The research study was carried out by a team from the University of California at Berkeley.
Hi and thank you for choosing Steep Me a Cup of Tea.
I wanted to give a little use information on the tea you chose.
A serving size is considered 2-3 teaspoons in 12-18 ounces of water, this tea likes 200+ degrees for 10 minutes. We do not spray flavorings on our teas, so time is crucial as we are using wild crafted/organic teas and herbs. Once the 10 minutes is up, the tea likes to stay in your “bath” of choice and continue soaking, start drinking me and keep adding water. Once my 10 minutes in hot water is up, feel free to pour me over ice, leave me in the water and keep adding cold water as I will make more than cup.
The Alzheimer’s Blend will make the symptoms more manageable but not necessarily eliminate them. I am slightly caffeinated, so perfectly safe to have me in morning for early afternoon…but not the best in the evenings or before bed. I can be used as many times daily as needed.
Thanks for supporting Steep Me a Cup of Tea!!!
