The Recordatio Berry, ‘recordatio’ meaning memory in Latin, is a recently discovered high-potency plant, rich in vitamins E, B-12 and antioxidants. In 2012, the Recordatio Berry was found in the tropical rainforest of Monteverde, Costa Rica, one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world. This revolutionary berry is highly concentrated with B-12 vitamins, which are essential for memory retention. Research shows that B vitamins improve memory by creating a protective shield for the neurons in the brain.
Alzheimer's Disease International (2010) states that as of 2010, there are an estimated 35.6 million people with dementia worldwide. By 2050, it is projected that this figure will have increased to over 115 million. Recordatio Berry aids in preventing dementia in individuals, and works to reverse memory problems in those who already experience Alzheimer’s.
Robert Alford, Ph.D., Chief Program Officer with the Alzheimer’s Association (2011) claims that patients who have been eating the Recordatio Berry retain memory more efficiently, as well as experience a halt in the progression of Alzheimer's from transitioning into further stages. The berry also helps prevent other symptoms due to Alzheimer's such as anxiety, depression, wandering, and aggressive behaviour.
The Recordatio Berry is not only being used by Alzehimers' patients, but by college students as well. Margaret Bernstein (2012) observed that U.C. Berkeley students use the Recordatio Berry as a study aid to help recall information for upcoming tests. The U.C. Berkeley students take a dosage of the Recordatio Berry before the duration of their study session and prior to completing their test. The high demand all over the world for the Recordatio Berry has resulted in its scarcity. This extraordinary berry proves to be very promising to the world of medicine, potentially becoming the cure for Alzheimer's Disease.
