So easy!  Adjust ingredients to your taste.  I hope you enjoy this super easy dressing! you can substitute the balsamic vinegar for lemon juice and the Dijon mustard for honey mustard to make a lighter summer dressing.  Both can be used as marinade for chicken, or fish (lemon dressing), or add to any salad for a burst of flavour!  Be aware and eat with care 🙂

Article: Chinese herbal medicine for Mild Cognitive Impairment and Age Associated Memory Impairment: a review of randomised controlled trials

Chinese herbal medicine and mild dementis systematic review

Click on the underlined link above to read a  systematic review on Chinese and English randomized-control trials looking to determine if Chinese Herbal Medicine (CHM) can improve mild dementia onset or mild cognitive impairment (MCI).  The herbal lists are included in the tables and its an interesting read about the potential for memory improvement.  Ginkgo Biloba has apparently been excluded, which is a shame because I think it has some major potential and should be studied more in terms of its effects on cognitive abilities.  Hope you enjoy reading this, and just remember:  trying to understand is the first step. The more you read, the easier it will become, and the more knowledge and understanding you will gain!  Be aware and eat with care 🙂
