Memory Problems? Try THIS EASY Fix
Everyone has “brain glitches” as you get older.
…Forgetting the name of a movie you’ve seen a dozen times.
…The conversation between two people that’s difficult to follow.
…And of course the stereotypical forgetting where you put your keys.
It’s easy to think the worst when your memory starts letting you down… especially with Alzheimer’s cases skyrocketing.
But if you’ve been experiencing some lapses in thinking and reasoning, there could be a simple reason that has nothing to do with Alzheimer’s—and an equally easy fix.
Your brain is a complex piece of machinery, and there’s a lot that goes into making it run smoothly. A deficiency is any ONE thing that can show up in how well it does (or doesn’t) function.
And if you’ve been having problems with thinking and reasoning, it could be due to a deficiency in vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 does many important jobs in your body, like supporting red blood cell formation, DNA synthesis… and neurological function.
So it’s no surprise that numerous studies have found a connection between brain glitches and low levels of B12.
In one meta-analysis of 43 studies, researchers determined that low blood levels of vitamin B12 were associated with neurodegenerative disease and cognitive impairment.
Another study also found the connection between B12 deficiency and cognition… and it also showed that supplementing with B12 helped improve patients’ cognitive outcomes.
So while your memory problems could be due to a B12 deficiency—and NOT Alzheimer’s—keep in mind that some studies have shown that having low B12 levels can increase your risk of Alzheimer’s, vascular dementia, and Parkinson’s.
Cognition problems aren’t the only sign of a B12 deficiency. Others can include numbness and tingling in your hands and feet, anemia, swollen tongue, weakness, and fatigue.
If these symptoms are hitting close to home, consider taking steps to increase your B12 levels.
Food sources of B12 include fish, meat, poultry, eggs, and milk.
You can also take a B12 supplement.
