Vanilla For Memory?

Updated: Mar 13

Why was vanilla in the Himalayan Long Life Botanicals Super Superfood for memory? It is no longer there because of the cost. But why was it originally in the blend?


Vanilla for our brain and our body


Vanilla has been used medicinally for vanilloids to combat inflammation. Your skin gets swollen and you get a cut or a burn – and the same biological mechanism may happen inside due to to stress, bad food, and harmful chemicals and poisons.


Inflammation is worse your brain. The release of inflammatory cytokines contribute to brain fog, so it’s hard to focus, think clearly, or remember.


Vanillin promotes relaxation to calm the cytokine inflammation.

Vanilla has been used for:

  • Calming stomach pains

  • Fever reduction

  • Stress relief

  • Reduction in joint pain

  • Handling nausea, morning sickness

How do vanilloids work?


Vanilloids are chemical compounds found in spices like vanilla, ginger, allspice, and cloves and even capsaicin.


Vanilloids bind to receptors in our body and so disrupt the pathway of pain.


Part of this is that vanilloids “use all” our body’s major pain signaling compound called substance P. Substance P is found in arthritis, fibromyalgia, and other inflammation.
