The Vitamin Cocktail That Saves Your Mind and Wards off Dementia

No one wants to lose their mind.

So along with eating more fish, getting exercise, socializing, and doing puzzles, there’s a simple cocktail of vitamins to add to your daily brain-preserving regimen.

Elderly people with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), the precursor to dementia and Alzheimer’s, who took this mixture of vitamins showed significant less brain degeneration.1

In a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers found that the vitamins prevented shrinkage of the medial temporal lobe. That’s the part of the brain associated with the disease.

Before the study, these seniors had high levels of homosysteine. That’s a protein in the blood linked to Alzheimer’s. But after taking the vitamins? Their levels dropped by 29 percent. This helped prevent and slow down brain shrinkage—as much as eight times slower.

A sure way to a healthy brain is a good night’s rest. Chronic brain inflammation can deteriorate brain cells. Proper sleep acts as an anti-inflammatory. Even just a six-minute power nap enhances memory.

This was the first treatment that has shown to potentially stop Alzheimer’s-related brain shrinkage.

What’s the treatment that can prevent brain shrinkage and save your memory?

A high dose of B vitamins. B12, B6, and folic acid to be exact.

Another study found similar results with the same B vitamin cocktail. It lowered homocysteine levels by 30 percent in people with MCI.2 Cognitive function also improved. And the people performed better on mental tests.

Nobody’s quite sure how high homocysteine levels can cause Alzheimer’s. But high levels put you at a greater risk of suffering from a blood clot.3 And blood clots block blood flow. A lack of blood flow means lack of oxygen to your brain. If your brain doesn’t have proper blood flow and oxygen then it suffers damage. Leaving your memory impaired.

You are also at a greater risk of suffering from a stroke. That alone raises your risk of developing dementia.4

People with MCI are still able to function. They just have the casual memory slip ups. Sound familiar? So it’s vital to do what you can now to ward off dementia. And B vitamins hold the key.

Editor’s Note: In the October 2012 issue of INH’s Natural Health Dossier, we revealed the top three natural treatments that can not only prevent Alzheimer’s—but also reverse it.  Simple, natural ways to protect your brain and preserve your memory. But the time to start using them is now. To access this issue and our entire archives, join Natural Health Dossier today. It takes just a few minutes.

  1. Homocysteine is not a protein, ut is a kind of amino acid.

  2. Don’t forget about antioxidant fruits like blueberries. And, Turmeric, dissolved in coconut oil (which is GOOD for you) and used for cooking, is VERY Worthwhile. Alzheimer’s is Rare in India.

    The Mediterranean Diet is Great, Too. Greeks live to 82 on average, and have 1/17th the rate of Dementia.

    1. Hello Marianne Did you ever get the ICT Protocol cocktail. If you did do you mind sharing it with me Please. Thank you

    1. Did anyone get the ICT Protocol cocktail. If you did do you mind sharing it with me Please. Thank you

    1. It seems that quite a few people are interested in the ICP PROTOCOL but when asked it doesn’t seem to be freely available without a catch. I’d like the recipe without the catch. Is that possible? Cheers, Martin ( NZ)

  4. I would also like the recipe for the ICT protocol cocktail and I thank you in advance….Meg

  5. yes… the recipe is talked about but nobody is human enough to share it .. we live in a sick society, if I found a cancer cure I would share far and wide.. the P&L statement appears to cancel the human empathy

  6. Well…..1 ingredient is …. coconut oil…..organic….unrefined….2 tblspoons..daily…..the other..I believe is vitamin B complex…50 mg…they emphazize…B6, B12, & folic acid…which are all in vit B complex…other ingredient. …not sure….yet…I started my mom on this a couple days ago…

  7. Joe, let us know how your mother responds to this cocktail

    1. THE ALZHEIMER ASSOC HAS THEIR OWN SUPPLEMENT,,CHECK OUT THE INGREDIENTS AND PURCHASE EACH SEPARATELY

  8. the recipes I found included: A mushroom extract, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, high dose of B-Vitamin complex, Vitamin G (Riboflavin)

    I listened to a super long video that listed the Mushroom extract and read through countless articles to find about the other two ingredients..

    Take the MCT or Coconut Oil in the morning. It takes 3 hours to get the effect of the ketones.

    they never really give a recipe.

    20 grams of MCT a day, according to Dr. Newport, is the recommended dose. (Others recommend 20-40 grams a day of MCTs – 1 to 2 tablespoons of MCT oil a day – see below)

    How Much Coconut Oil?

    Since coconut oil is about 66% MCT, this equates to 35 mL = 2 tablespoons = 7 teaspoons.
