When you see the terrifying warning signs… and you’re fighting those frustrating battles with memory loss… you’re no doubt worried that they could turn into full-blown cognitive decline…or even dementia.
But the latest research shows that there’s a supplement combo that can protect your brain from the damage that leads to cognitive decline — even if you’re ALREADY showing the early warning signs!
And it’s as simple as getting enough of both vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids.
On their own, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil can protect your heart without wrecking your body — unlike the muscle-crushing, brain-stealing, disease-causing statin drugs.
But when fish oil is combined with vitamin B12, it’s even better.
Now, B12 is no slouch on its own. And even though most people don’t take it as a supplement, they probably should — because it’s positively critical to brain health. Studies have shown that a blend of B vitamins — including B12 — can slow the “brain shrink” linked to dementia and protect the memory.
But if you want to squeeze every last drop of brain protection out of B12, you need to make sure you have high levels of omega-3 fatty acids rushing through your blood.
In the new study, seniors who combined high levels of fish oil with taking B12, absolutely aced tests of memory and thinking when compared to folks given a placebo — despite the fact that they’d ALREADY been suffering from mild cognitive impairment!
Yet B12 combined with fish oil seemed to put that whole scary process on hold.
Seniors who had low omega-3 levels, on the other hand, didn’t get much of a brain benefit out of taking B12 supplements, if at all.
Listen, there are some partnerships you just don’t want to split up. Starsky was even better with Hutch…and if you ask me, a glass of scotch is never better than with a good cigar.
And if you want the best of the best for your gray matter, don’t stop with just B12 and fish oil. When it comes to B vitamins, there’s strength in numbers — so make sure you get the rest of the B family, specifically B12, B6, and folic acid.
