Banish Brain Fog and Reverse Mental Decline.
New Evidence Suggests You Can Begin Enjoying a Razor-Sharp Mind in Only 48 Hours. Many Americans over 50 are damaging their brains without knowing it. Forgotten facts and precious memories lost don’t have to continue.
As an example, one man started waking up and, even after a good night’s sleep, he was still exhausted. Then he became more forgetful than usual and started to get a little concerned. His wife was petrified! He started to be snappy with his wife and was becoming a “grumpy old man.” What on earth could be going on?
Now, of course, there can be several things causing those symptoms but a lot of it sounded like a lack of methylcobalamin B12. So, it was pretty simple (and inexpensive) to take some.
Well, guess what? He had some numbness that left, his brain fog cleared up and his symptoms vanished! You can imagine how happy he was waking up each day with a clear mind (not to mention his wife rejoicing).
So, What’s Up with Vitamin B12?
Some of the world’s best scientists are researching B12 deficiency. This research is leading to some very surprising results. They are saying many of us need more vitamin B12. The Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation says if you live to be 80, your chances of suffering from severe loss of cognitive function are 50/50.
It shouldn’t surprise you that that is about the same percentage of older adults who are deficient in B12! But even younger people aren’t exempt. Researchers from Tufts University found that nearly 1 in 4 people over age 26 are at least borderline deficient in B12.
The good news? B12 deficiency can be remedied easily, quickly and inexpensively. Our Foundation multi-nutrient is loaded with it – or you can buy it separately.
How Does B12 Do It?
Your body relies on vitamin B12 for energy production. It’s a key part of the metabolic process that converts carbohydrates and fats into energy – this is why it’s often called the “energy vitamin.”
B12 is also one of the building blocks your body uses to produce DNA. It’s vital for healthy cell growth and repair. Proper levels of B12 helps keep your immune system functioning optimally, regulate mood and sleep cycles and lessen the harmful effects of the toxic stress hormone homocysteine.
Most important is that B12′s helps protect your brain and entire nervous system. It does this by keeping your nerves communicating in an optimal manner. A recent study showed that B12 supplementation slows the accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and declining cognitive function in older individuals to a crawl.
Scientists at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago found those who had markers linked to vitamin B12 deficiency were more likely to have the smallest brains and the lowest scores on tests measuring short-term memory, concentration, and other thinking processes. Another study showed that older people with higher levels of B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier brains and score higher on cognitive tests than those with lower levels.
Another major benefit of having enough B12 in your body is that it works to reduce levels of the toxic stress hormone homocysteine. Homocysteine is known to cause damage to the inside of blood vessels and arteries, making elevated levels a serious risk factor for heart disease. Not only does lowering homocysteine levels make you feel less stressed, studies have shown that it also confers protection for your heart, bones, vision and hearing.
A final bonus: Harvard researchers found a 34% decreased risk of vision loss and improved retinal blood vessel function for study participants aged 40 and older who supplement with B12. Another study found low blood levels of vitamin B12 are linked to a higher risk of hearing loss in subjects in their 60s. Researchers think homocysteine may damage the delicate cells that transmit sound waves in your inner ear.
Take the Methylcobalamin Form of B12.
There are two forms of B12 – and we have both of them in our Foundation multi-nutrient (8,333% of the RDA amount). Both are important but it is the methylcobalamin form of B12 that is often in short supply.
Within 1-3 days you’ll be noticing:
- Sharper memory and clearer thinking
- Improved energy and stamina all day
- Fewer mood swings and greater well-being
- Better sleep so you wake up refreshed
- A stronger immune system to avoid illness
- Protection for your heart, vision, and hearing
If this is a need in your life, add some B12 and find out how good it feels to reclaim your Youthful Brain – and take back control of your own health!
