When you or someone you love has Dementia, you may be open to any and all possible ways to treat it and to keep from worsening. At the present moment there is no cure, and a limited number of medications for this progressive disease. Some may look to what vitamins and supplements can do.
New research shows that certain vitamins may actually help prevent dementia or slow down the progression. Below are a few “super-vitamins” :
- Vitamin B1
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid
- Omega-3 fatty acids
New preliminary evidence suggests that the brain can change for the better with the use of natural remedies. Research informs us that the change will take years, not weeks or months, to see the beneficial effects with a natural approach due to the fact the brain takes a longer time to heal than any other organ.
Aside from these top natural remedies, please be aware that severe imbalances in various hormones (estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, cortisol, insulin, thyroid, pituitary and several others) can have profound effects on brain aging. As well as chronic stress, your personal genetics or family history, and the amount of time you exercise and have restorative sleep.
For all these or any other brain aging concerns, see a natural health care practitioner or your primary doctor to discuss further, and of course before implementing a new regimen of vitamins and/or supplements.
