Has B12 and folate helped your declining memory like it did mine?
Not all of us have these particular symptoms. Those of us who do and have B12 injections and correct folate supplementation regularly enough to help repair the nerves of brain, are proof of the fact that our cognitive decline has halted with this inexpensive treatment.
We as patients are largely ignored on this issue, and so are the scientists who report the same.
Read what Jerome Burne has to say on this issue ;
‘Do you believe there is a new drug for Alzheimer’s just over the horizon? That there is no truth in the popular idea that B vitamins might cut your risk of getting this dreadful disease?
Well you are wrong on both counts but it’s not your fault, you’ve quite reasonably fallen for some very sophisticated marketing. Let me explain.
You will be amazed at how tiny the benefit a drug needs to have to be hailed as a breakthrough and how ruthlessly a smokescreen of shoddy trials can be used to obscure the truth about the potential benefits of B vitamins.
This is not biased ignorant pharma bashing; it’s a reasonable conclusion from what has been happening. For instance, compare the enthusiastic way a new drug is greeted, with the low key response to research showing that cheap vitamins might do the job.’
….and what Margaret McCartney has to say; http://www.bmj.com/content/351/bmj.h4064
‘This is no breakthrough. How did this paper score such extraordinary publicity?’
