Evade Dementia with a VITAMIN?! Study says, "YES!"

Few things are as crucial as maintaining brain health as you age.

You can live with a bum knee or losing your hair. And cranking up the volume on the TV to hear your favorite shows might be annoying, but it’s manageable.

However, fading brain power is a horse of a different color. It means losing your memories, your identity, and eventually your freedom.

If you ask a mainstream medicine doc about protecting your brain against dementia, they’re likely to shrug and mumble something vague about diet or watching your weight.

Or worse, they’ll push some prescription pill that’s nearly useless and comes with a boatload of dangerous side effects.

But you DON’T have to take that risk. Because researchers uncovered a remarkable, all-natural solution for slashing your risk of developing dementia.

A recent study revealed how nicotinamide riboside (NR), a member of the vitamin B3 family, protects the brain.

When you take NR, your body quickly converts it into the coenzyme nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+).

NAD+ is essential to your body’s cellular and DNA repair processes. It transports electrons inside cells from one molecule to another to carry out various vital functions.

Plus, it naturally lowers blood pressure—which is ALSO good for brain health.

We’re swimming in the stuff when we’re young. But we use MORE of it as we age due to inflammation and DNA damage. And your levels can drop even further if you smoke, are overweight, or eat a lot of processed foods.

The researchers wanted to find out what NAD+ DOES once inside the brain. And that’s where things got REALLY interesting.

The NAD+ SIGNIFICANTLY improved signs of neurodegenerative brain disease.

In fact, some experts are now proposing that low NAD+ levels could be the CAUSE of dementias, such as Alzheimer’s.

Obviously, more research is needed to confirm this theory. But these findings are BIG news because nearly every available mainstream treatment for Alzheimer’s has failed or has a mild impact on the disease at best.

Both nicotinamide riboside (NR) and nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) are safe and affordable supplements. And for some extra brain protection, one is well worth adding to your daily routine.

And another thing…
