Botanicals and Cognitive Health

Botanicals boast numerous health benefits, but cognitive health especially has been an interesting area of research. Certain botanicals have been researched for their benefits in areas such as dementia (specifically Alzheimer’s disease) and even depression, which Courtney Johnson, assistant editor, INSIDER, discusses with Lise Alschuler, chief medical officer and co-founder at iTHRIVE, in this podcast.

This podcast covers:

  • Symptoms of early signs of dementia, specifically Alzheimer's disease, and botanicals effects on these symptoms.
  • Research on ingredients such as curcumin and other botanicals for cognitive health.
  • Different formats to get certain botanicals in the diet, such as through supplementation and food sources.
