Brain Health Vitamins

Earlier, we were talking about brain health, Brain Health Vitamins, and why it’s so important to be concerned about our brain, isn’t it?

Yeah, and you know, this is a topic that hits home for me because my father developed early-onset Alzheimer’s at the age of 54.

Fifty-four? How fast did it progress, if I can ask?

Typically, it lasts about seven years from the time of diagnosis to death. He probably had symptoms before then, but he was first diagnosed at 54 and passed at 61.

Wow. From when you first noticed a problem to when it became a serious issue, how long was that?

The first time I recognised it as a problem, I was 21. He was diagnosed two years later, and he died when I was 29. So, I noticed an issue two years before he was diagnosed. It started when we were playing pool on my 21st birthday. He potted the black ball first, which you’re not supposed to do until the last shot. When we pointed it out, he seemed confused. It started from there but must have been brewing under the surface for a while.

Nowadays, we have a lot more information. I know we’ve got some genetic factors and new studies coming out. Recently, a study involving over 44,000 people was published, identifying the top three causes of dementia/Alzheimer’s. Can you guess what the top three are?

Tell us.

The top causes are alcohol, diabetes, and air pollution.

Air pollution, really? I can believe it. Studies about amyloid plaques and such have been shown to be falsified to sell medication. So, we need to look at environmental factors since only about 10% of Alzheimer’s is genetic; most of it is environmental.

In the picture I posted, my dad was an aircraft maintenance engineer. He used to work soldering radio circuits in airplanes, often in a smoke-filled room with no ventilation, breathing in the vapours from the soldering iron, which contained lead. This went on for years. He also drank occasionally, was deficient in B12 and B6, and had haemochromatosis (iron overload). All these factors likely contributed.

Absolutely. Whenever I hear your dad’s story, it consumes me. It’s sad because people shouldn’t suffer from these diseases at such a young age. My dad just turned 86 six months ago and was concerned about getting Alzheimer’s, although it doesn’t run in our family. One of his sisters had it, but that was likely chemo-induced. My dad has beaten six types of cancer, including skin cancer, and is still living on his own, doing well. He gets upset about forgetting names, but he was never good at that, even in his 30s and 40s. Otherwise, he’s sharp. A few years back, I got him taking Omega-3s, which are crucial for brain health because the brain’s connections are made of fatty acids.

Omega-3s are important because they act like high-quality wiring for the brain. Additionally, CoQ10 in Omega-3 supplements helps prevent certain heart diseases. Another product that made a big difference for my dad was Brain Vitality, especially after we reintroduced Magnesium L-threonate. After two weeks of taking it, he noticed a significant improvement and never wanted to go without it again.

That’s great to hear. Ros recently stopped taking Brain Vitality and noticed a difference, so she’s back on it. It’s got ingredients that support neurotransmitters in the brain, affecting cognitive function and mood.

Exactly. Omega-3s help with the synapses in the brain, ensuring messages are correctly transmitted. For people with Alzheimer’s, these messages get crisscrossed. We need to keep toxins out and get B vitamins and other nutrients in. Magnesium L-threonate is particularly important because it crosses the blood-brain barrier faster than other forms of magnesium.

Fantastic. Losing your memory is something you want to avoid, so it’s crucial to preserve your brain health. We’ll leave it there, as we could talk about this all day, but that’s some great information.

You bet. Thanks for joining us, Katie. Everyone, thanks for being with us. Listen to these messages and pass them on to others. It’s important for everyone to understand this.

Thanks, Dr Curt.

Alright, thank you. Goodnight, everyone.
