Just a few years ago, they said it could kill you. But new research shows this vitamin reduces cognitive decline by 20 percent annually.

The Controversial Answer to Fighting Alzheimer’s Naturally

In All Health Watch, Cognitive Health, Featured Article

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) may have finally met its match.

A common—but controversial—vitamin delays the cognitive decline of AD by almost 20 percent each year.1 It even helps you live longer.

But an old study came to the ridiculous conclusion that taking even small amounts of it can kill you. Don’t be fooled by bad science.

Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant. It protects you from environmental free radical damage. But it also widens your blood vessels and helps keep blood from clotting where it isn’t supposed to.

The latest research shows that not getting enough of this vitamin is the real danger. If you don’t have enough, you won’t be able to protect your brain from AD. Vitamin E is good for your body. But it’s even better for your mind.

Researchers found that it is more effective than memantine, a popular AD drug. In fact, taking vitamin E by itself showed even better results than a combination of the two.

2,000 IU of it each day not only prevents AD but helps you live longer compared to not taking it.2

Because of the supposed “dangers,” people probably aren’t getting enough vitamin E. Some of you may be avoiding it entirely! Meanwhile, Alzheimer’s related deaths increased nearly 70 percent between 2000 and 2010.3

Vitamin E is safe. But it’s interesting that this study only used one form, alpha tocopherol. This is a synthetic type of vitamin E, and only one of eight forms. If you really want the full benefits of this vitamin—and why wouldn’t you?—get it naturally from food. Almonds, hazelnuts, avocados, and wild-caught salmon are naturally high in it.

And while we’re on the subject of supplements for brain health…here’s another you must know about if you or someone you love is worried about AD. The study results on this are so promising that Big Pharma is trying to turn this natural herb extract into a drug.

Of course when they do, they’ll sell it to you for hundreds of dollars. And who knows what kind of side effects it will come with. Luckily, you can get the safer, natural version now, for just pennies a day. All the details are revealed right here.
