Borage is a natural herbal medicine used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related disorders.
Borage’s ability to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in the brain and improve brain function could help with memory loss and other cognitive disorders, according to the Alzheimer’s Association.
The herb is also believed to improve cognitive performance in people with Alzheimer’s.
The American Academy of Neurology, the American College of Cardiology, and the American Heart Association have all endorsed the medicinal benefits of Borage.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Borage has been found to improve memory, reduce inflammation, improve blood pressure, reduce fatigue, increase energy, improve focus, reduce pain, and improve overall quality of life in patients with dementia.
A 2014 study found that Borage can reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 20 percent in people who were taking it daily for at least one year.
The Mayo Clinic recommends Borage for patients with Alzheimer, depression, or dementia and their families.
