Your Brain is BEGGING for This “Forgotten” Vitamin
I’m sure you’ve heard an earful about vitamin C over the years.
You know it’s a powerful antioxidant… you know it helps boost your immune system… you even know it can prevent the common cold.
But there’s something about vitamin C that most folks don’t know — and are never even told by their doctors.
Because if you’re serious about preventing dementia… if you want to hang on to your precious memories for the rest of your life… you need to get serious about boosting your vitamin C levels.
And the sooner the better.
A recent study found that getting enough vitamin C is absolutely essential for protecting your brain function.
Researchers conducted a massive analysis of 50 studies from the past 37 years.
Some of the studies included people who were cognitively impaired, and others included mentally healthy people.
The results were clear — the folks with higher cognitive function consistently had higher levels of vitamin C in their blood.
And this wasn’t the first study to show vitamin C’s impact on cognitive decline and brain function.
And an earlier study showed that men who supplemented with vitamins C and E for 10 years had an amazing 88 percent lower risk of developing vascular dementia.
Nearly 90 percent less risk? That sounds good to me.
It turns out that vitamin C impacts the development of brain cells. It also helps with the formation of myelin – that’s the protective sheath around nerve fibers that increases the speed of communication between brain cells.
Loss of brain cells is common in all neurodegenerative diseases (including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s), and loss of myelin is common in central nervous system disorders (like stroke and multiple sclerosis).
If these studies make you want to pour a glass of orange juice, I don’t blame you! Just make sure it’s fresh-squeezed, and not the processed junk they sell at the grocery stores.
In addition to oranges, other good sources of vitamin C include strawberries, kale, and broccoli.
And if you’re worried about getting enough vitamin C, there are lots of inexpensive supplements on the market.
To a brighter day,
