  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. Yes, you do need your antioxidants

    Antioxidant study misses the point

    Let's face some facts here: It's downright impossible to get all the nutrients you need from diet alone.

    Just look at vitamin E.

    One of the best sources of E is spinach -- and if you're not a fan you should also know that you have to choke down a POUND of the bitter greens a day just to get the measly levels recommend by the feds.

    Not even Popeye eats that much spinach!

    It's like that with a lot of the antioxidants -- some are in gross foods, like spinach. Some are in delicious foods, but ones that aren't always in season or cost too much to eat every day.

    Have you seen the price of berries lately?

    Plus more than a few just don't exist in food in helpful amounts at all -- like resveratrol.

    And that's the REAL reason a recent study found that high levels of antioxidants didn't protect against stroke and dementia -- because the study didn't look at truly high levels of these nutrients.

    Researchers instead looked at only DIETARY levels, comparing seniors who ate the most to those who ate the least.

    Why bother? There was barely any difference between the two groups. In fact, the number one dietary source of all antioxidants in the study -- the one "food" that accounted for 90 percent of the difference in levels -- was coffee and tea.

    Now, I love coffee. As a Dose reader you know that. It's healthy, it can protect the heart and brain, prevent cancer, and it's got more than a few antioxidants. Same for tea. But if you're relying on your daily cuppa jo for the bulk of your antioxidants, you're going to fall short.

    So while the mainstream message is "maybe antioxidants aren't so good for you after all," the real message here is to make sure you actually get these nutrients in the amounts proven to protect the heart and brain and prevent heart disease, dementia, cancer, and more.

    And you can do it in two easy steps.

    First, do your homework and find out which nutrients are in the foods you already eat regularly.

    Then, do the math and figure out which ones you're not getting and how much you need -- and, if they're not in your daily multi already, get your hands on some supplements.

    Imagine that -- good nutrition can help a woman get pregnant.
  6. Eggs-tremely good news from the henhouse

    Turns out eggs aren't so bad for you after all. That's right! You can even eat the yolks now. (Of course, if you've been listening to me, you never stopped eating them in the first place.)
  7. Vitamin E under attack

    The study found that while vitamin E users appear to have that slight increase in hemorrhagic stroke risk, they actually have a lower risk of the more common type of stroke -- ischemic stroke.
  8. Potential dangers of antioxidants

    Speaking of metabolism, there's a new study that claims that people should steer clear of antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E if they're exercising to help prevent diabetes.

    Researchers are doing their best to put a positive spin on two of the latest HRT studies, but in the end, I'm more convinced than ever that HRT is one of the most dangerous scams being foisted upon our nation's women…
