B vitamins

  1. The real secret to a super-charged brain

    How to reverse cognitive decline

    Next time some holier-than-thou vegan starts blabbering about how man wasn't designed to eat meat, ask him if he knows what powers the human brain.

    The answer ain't tofu.

    Your brain was specifically designed to function on a diet of the fats and nutrients you can only get from meat and fish.

    Studies have consistently found that low levels of B12 lead to the highest brain problems -- and that boosting your levels can prevent or even reverse that damage.

    The latest research adds even more proof.

    One study found that seniors with the lowest levels of vitamin B12 had the highest risk of cognitive shortcomings, including low scores on thought, reason, and memory tests. And it's no wonder! Low levels of B12 can literally cause your brain to shrink.

    Sound like fun? Of course not -- but that's exactly what you're in for if you stick to a plant-based diet, because you won't find B12 in leaves, roots, and fungi. You'll find it in meats -- especially organ meats -- as well as fish and dairy.

    But if low levels of B12 will turn a mind to mush, high levels can actually save it. Megadoses of B vitamins can slow or even stop brain shrinkage and reverse the cognitive slide linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.

    British researchers put 271 seniors suffering from mild cognitive impairment onto either a daily placebo or a supplement regimen of 0.5mg of B12, 0.8mg of folic acid, and 20mg of B6.

    After two years, the seniors who got their B vitamins did 70 percent better on memory tests than those who got the placebos -- with some of them actually showing improvements over their initial scores.

    They got older... and their minds got BETTER with age. Imagine that!

    But wait, there's more: The patients on the B vitamins had slower rates of brain shrinkage -- in one case by 500 percent.

    Now, any reason to eat a steak is a good one to me, but these kinds of results won't come from diet alone. For the best brain boost, invest in a good, quality supplement.

    If you're getting up there in years, no excuses -- you need a B complex, and you need one now.

    That, and steak.

  2. The biggest lies about aging

    Getting old doesn't mean getting weak

    It's enough to drive you nuts: You know your body better than anyone, and you definitely know when there's something wrong -- but your doctor doesn't seem to give a hoot.

    It doesn't matter if you're suffering from a slower gait or a slower mind -- all your doc sees is the age on your chart. If it's past a certain number he'll just chalk your symptoms up to "old age."

    In other words: Here's a dime, gramps -- call someone who cares.

    I suggest you use it to call another doctor because those "old age" symptoms are often the sign of something much more serious.

    In the first study, researchers examined the brains of 418 deceased priests and nuns who had been tracked since 1994 and lived to an average age of 88. They found a surprising number of blocked blood vessels that hadn't turned up on their regular screenings -- even in patients with no history of stroke or brain disorders.

    The seniors with the most blockages had the most problems getting around. The blood vessel abnormalities were also linked to stooped posture and trembling hands.

    In other words, these folks weren't just getting older, as their docs almost certainly assumed -- they had serious blockages in their brains.

    So when your mind does slip, don't listen to a doctor who tells you it's normal -- listen to me and take the quick action needed to save it. Better yet, boost your brain now by making sure you get the high levels of B vitamins it needs to stay sharp.

    The drug industry likes my plan so much they've stolen it. They're working on patented blends of B vitamins that are supposed to combat cognitive decline and keep dementia at bay.

    So I've stolen it back. I've got all the details on their secret formula down to the microgram -- and you can read it for free right here.

  3. Stop dementia before it starts

    Yet another study has found that vitamin B12 can lower your Alzheimer's risk -- and since you can't get this key nutrient from bunny chow, find yourself a good butcher now.
  4. Heart drug, heart risk

    I don't know of too many good treatments for atrial fibrillation -- but I know of one you need to avoid like the plague.
  5. Stop dementia before it starts

    Yet another new study finds that vitamin B12 can lower your Alzheimer's risk...
  6. B blend can slow dementia

    At first glance, it's a big win for supplements: Researchers say megadoses of B vitamins can dramatically cut back on the conditions that lead to dementia. But dig a little deeper, and you'll uncover yet another Big Pharma attempt to bully its way into the supplement game.
  7. Meaty nutrients hold the keys to happiness

    I take a lot of flak for pointing out that the vegan lifestyle leads to gloom and doom, but I don't care -- because I'm right, and yet another study backs me up.
