Vitamin B and Brain Health



Whether we like it or not, we all age—the difference is that some of us age better because we live well. Of course, no one knows the future and you may live as healthy as you can and still get sick.

However, living a long life is sweeter when you’re living a well live. Quality of life is what is so important. If you’re feeling sick and continually not feeling well, your emotional well-being goes downhill.

Keeping our brains healthy is key to having the best quality of life. So, what can we do to protect our brains and strive to have that top-notch quality of living?

I read an interesting article: B Vitamins Protect Brain from Dementia by Dr. Jonathan Wright which explained a study that was done with an amazing breakthrough—a way to fend of Alzheimer’s disease. According to Dr. Wright, “three simple vitamins could work together like a well-oiled machine to offer your brain up to 90% protection against the most common cause of dementia!”


The main take away from the research is that you should take vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid.

It’s been proven that reducing alcohol consumption and exercising decreases brain shrinkage.

Yet according to the research from this study, taking B6, B12 and folic acid appeared “to be 350% more effective.”

Dr. Wright recommends taking folate over folic acid since the latter doesn’t do as much for your brain. We rely on our livers to convert folic acid to folate but that doesn’t always work and some peoples’ livers can’t convert it at all. So you’re better off taking supplements with folate.

The B Complex from the Shaklee Store has a powerful blend of all eight B vitamins. These vitamins are vitally important for good health.

The daily stressors, alcohol consumption and various prescription drugs increase your risk of having your B-vitamin stores depleted. In order to have proper bodily function—heart health, energy and DNA synthesis—maintaining vitamin B stores in your body is essential.
