A vitamin in fish can protect your brain

It’s time to put tuna back on the menu!

The hippy-dippy lefties have been waging a campaign against tuna for years, lately even making the absurd claim that the fish have been hunted to the brink of extinction.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve literally NEVER seen a tuna shortage!

So, go ahead and enjoy some tuna without a twinge of guilt – and not just to stick your thumb in the eye of the Greenpeace loons.

It’s because new research shows how that simple meal – plain old delicious TUNA FISH – could hold the secret to protecting your brain as you age!

Tuna is the best natural source of vitamin B6, a brain-boosting nutrient that can light up your lobes like Times Square at night.

The less you have of it, the HIGHER your risk of cognitive decline, according to the new study.

Vitamin B6 helps your brain crank out fresh neurotransmitters, or the communications network that allows your gray matter to send and receive messages.

Without B6, that network goes dark – and your memory ends up like Hillary’s lost emails.

B6 also helps the body create fresh hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to your brain. Since your brain sucks up 20 percent of all the oxygen in your entire body, you can see how critical that is.

As a result, when you fall short in vitamin B6, you can suffer a faster, steeper decline as you get older.

In the new study, folks in their 70s who had lower B6 levels were 3.5 times more likely to suffer a greater degree of cognitive decline.

So, if you’ve been falling short yourself… or aren’t sure how much you’re getting… it’s time to get to work.

Start with that supposedly endangered (and definitely delicious) tuna.

After that, the best source of B6 is turkey – especially the dark meat the health nuts have told you not to eat.

It’s not only the tastiest part of the bird, it’s also got the most B6 and higher concentrations of other essential vitamins and minerals.

Number three on the list is BEEF – and while it’s also a great source of B6, it has about one-third less than tuna.

Chicken and salmon round out the top sources.

Notice a trend here?

If you’re sticking to the Greenpeace-approved, PETA-backed fringe diet the mainstream keeps pushing, you’re not getting anything close to what you need.

So, if the veg-heads want to miss out, let them. Eventually, they’ll forget why they even stopped eating meat in the first place.

But you don’t have to suffer their fate. Get plenty of fish and meat as part of a low-carb diet. And if you’re already starting to slip into cognitive decline, you can up your game by adding a B complex to your daily routine.

Studies show a blend of B6, B12, and folate can slow, stop, and even REVERSE cognitive decline – but it works best if you act NOW.
