Nutrients Working Synergistically to Improve Brain Health
Combing nutrients to support Brain health
For decades, Dr. Joel Wallach has stated that you need 90 essential nutrients for optimal health. Not 12, not 60, but 90. Although each of the 90 essential nutrients provides a specific health benefit, Doc’s message has always been that it’s the power of these combined nutrients that work synergistically to support the body’s total fundamental needs; helping you live younger, longer. This message has now become even clearer as a new study has found that B vitamins, which are believed to benefit brain health, may be dependent on Omega-3 levels.
For years, research has been conducted exploring the benefits that B vitamins offer for brain health. A study published in 2013 reported that high doses of B vitamins could stop the onset of Alzheimer’s by combining B12, B6 and Folic Acid. Now, there is a new study which found that the benefits provided to the brain from B vitamins, are also dependent on Omega-3 levels.
B Vitamins + Omega 3
The new study from the University of Oxford, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, found that high dose supplementation of B vitamins slowed brain degeneration in people with mild cognitive impairment by 40%, but only when Omega-3 levels were already high. Conversely, when the study looked at individuals with low levels of Omega-3 in their blood, there were no benefits found by supplementing with Folic Acid, and Vitamins B6 and B12. Not only does this study solidify the need for a whole nutritional supplement regimen, but it could also really help the elderly, who are already experiencing a decrease in cognitive function.
