  1. Vitamin E can slow Alzheimer's decline

    How vitamin E can ease Alzheimer's

    Alzheimer's patients are usually pumped full of meds that are worse than ineffective. Some of them can actually speed the progression of the disease and even up the risk of an early death.

    It's downright criminal, if you ask me.

    Meanwhile, safe and effective approaches are dismissed by the mainstream as alt-med nonsense.

    Well, let's see them try to dismiss this: A major new study finds vitamin E can do more for Alzheimer's patients than any dementia drug out there right now.

    That's not saying much. Like I said, the drugs are downright lousy.

    And the E isn't a cure. It won't stop or even slow the memory loss. But it WILL do something almost as important: It can preserve physical function, like your ability to bathe, get dressed and take care of yourself.

    The longer you can do that, the longer you can stay out of a care facility (or, more accurately, a lack-of-care facility).

    And the longer you stay out of those joints, the longer you stay ALIVE.

    In the new study, vitamin E was able to slow functional decline by about 6 months over two years when compared to a common dementia med. That's the equivalent of keeping one major skill that otherwise would have been lost during that time.

    Having said that, let's call this what it is: A good start. Keeping your physical function is great, but you want to keep more than that. You want to keep your mind and your memory. And despite what you've heard from the mainstream, there is a way to do just that.

    High doses of vitamin B6, B12 and folate have proven to be so effective at fighting cognitive decline that Big Pharma is working on a way to turn these ordinary nutrients into the next great dementia "drug."

    You know what they'll come up with, right? A synthetic blend that's not nearly as effective, but is 100 times the price (or more).

    To heck with that. You can get in on this miracle cure right now. I had everything you need to know, down to the exact doses of these vitamins used in the most promising clinical trials, in the August 2013 edition of my Douglass Report newsletter.

  2. Stiff arteries lead to brain damage

    Keep traffic moving on the highway to your brain

    Healthy aging starts in your arteries -- even a mainstream pill-pushing quack will tell you that. And if yours are so flexible you could yank them out and crack 'em like a whip, you don't have much to worry about.

    But if they're stiffer than the president trying to defend his health care plan, you've got problems -- and not just in your heart, where hardened arteries can lead to heart attack and stroke.

    They could wreck your brain, too, by boosting levels of beta amyloid, according to one new study.

    That's the so-called "brain plaque" linked to dementia and Alzheimer's disease, and the damage doesn't stop there. If you let your arteries get REALLY stiff, you could also end up with lesions in your white matter -- and yes, that's every bit as bad as it sounds, as brain lesions are another major dementia warning sign.

    Stiff arteries make it harder for blood to flow. And when the blood can't flow, it can't reach your bloodthirsty brain (not to mention your heart and other vital organs).

    Clearly, you want to keep yours nice and flexible -- but if you ask the pill-pushers, they'll push their favorite pills at you. You know the ones I'm talking about: cholesterol-lowering statin drugs.

    The theory is that since hardened arteries have buildups of cholesterol, the cholesterol must be the cause.

    I'm here to say that's absolutely and completely false.

    On its own, cholesterol will flow freely and cause no problems. It only sticks to the artery walls when your inflammation levels rise -- which is why high inflammation, and not high cholesterol, is the REAL cause of hardened arteries.

    And that's precisely why high levels of the inflammation marker homocysteine (and NOT high cholesterol) will lead to heart attack, dementia and more.

    So put down the statins and pick up a quality B complex instead -- because B6, B12 and folate can fight inflammation and keep your arteries free, clear and flexible.

    Not coincidentally, they're also proven to protect both heart and brain.

    I'm not done with artery health yet. Keep reading for the one thing in your home that could be turning your own arteries to stone right now.

  3. B blend beats dementia

    A potent blend of B vitamins can dramatically slow the brain shrink that leads to dementia and Alzheimer's disease.
  4. Vitamins boost brainpower

    Big Pharma has pumped billions into the hunt for a brain-boosting drug, and all they have to show for it so far is a bunch of tax write-offs. But there is something you can pop right now to get your brain juices flowing, and it's the cheap little pills you should be taking anyway -- your daily vitamins.
