B Vitamins Used To Aide Alzheimer's & Dementia
Reuters Health recently released their findings done in a two year trial of 168 volunteers with MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment) which is a major risk factor in both Alzheimer's and Dementia. In the study, part of the control group were given a pill with high doses of B vitamins while the other half were given a placebo pill. The results were interesting, to say the least.
In the next 20 years it is predicted that 1 in every 4 Americans will suffer from Dementia or Alzheimer's. Neither of these diseases are a natural part of aging and can be warded off according to the results of the study.
"Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) affects around 16 percent of people aged over 70 worldwide and is characterized by slight problems with memory loss, language or other mental functions. MCI does not usually interfere with daily life, but around 50 percent of people diagnosed with it go on to develop the far more severe Alzheimer's disease within five years." In the above mentioned study the researchers found that on average the shrinkage of the brains of those on the B vitamins was .76% compared to the placebo group which suffered a shrinkage of 1.08%. An interesting finding was that none of the participants measured low in B vitamins, just on the lower side of the normal range. Yet the results of giving the vitamin was surprising. One of the concerns we have at Natural Horizons is that often when people are taking vitamins they are not getting adequate absorption to make remarkable differences in their health. That is why we recommend by-passing the digestive system and introducing the vitamins directly to the cells through the blood stream with Intravenous Vitamin Therapy.
