Protect your brain from dementia without drugs

Five years to an Alzheimer's cure? That's the latest claim making the rounds -- but don't hold your breath.

The so-called promising new drug that's just a few years away from sparing everyone the misery of dementia has actually flunked just about every test and trial thrown its way so far.

Every failure brings new excuses -- like the drug fell short because the patients didn't start early enough.

So now, they're pulling the oldest trick in the book: They're starting patients on this experimental new drug so early that it's unclear whether they even have dementia at all.

After all, there's no blood test for dementia or Alzheimer's. It's a diagnosis based on opinion more than anything else, especially in the earliest stages.

But by starting people on the drug who DON'T have the disease, they can claim success when many of them later DON'T develop it... even though they might not have gotten dementia anyway, even without the drug.

Don't fall for it. And don't buy into the nonsense that dementia is inevitable or that there's no way to stop it -- because if you take action now, you CAN protect your brain and slash your risk of getting this disease even if you're already starting to suffer from cognitive decline.

All you need are some brain-friendly nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins.

A blend of B6, B12 and folic acid has been proven in multiple studies to slow the brain shrink that marks dementia and slow or even reverse the decline that comes with it -- and you don't have to wait five years to get it.

You can find a quality B complex in any decent vitamin shop right now. Look for one with at least 0.5 milligrams of vitamin B12, 20 milligrams of vitamin B6, and 0.8 milligrams of folic acid.
