neurogenesis tea

Generating new brain cells is a possibility. For anyone who like t’ drrrink… this is a very comforting fact. Years of reckless abandon can be counteracted with sleep, sunlight, sex, meditation, exercise and, lastly, diet… The body can repair itself given the opportunity!

This recipe combines ingredients that are all good for neurogenesis, enhancing memory, and even preventing dementia and Alzheimer’s. It is inspired by my obsession with neuroscience, haldi milk (also called manja milk or turmeric milk) and bulletproof coffee.

As with all my recipes there is no exact recipe. Play around with it until it tastes good to you. This is roughly what I do…

1 cup boiling water
a green tea bag/leaves
1 tblsp coconut oil
1 tsp turmeric (fresh/powdered)
a few squeezes of lemon juice

Mix it all together, let it cool and sip it down. Then enjoy that brain zing!
