Mailbag! Power Supplement STOPS Depression and Alzheimer’s
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
You’ve got questions…
We’ve got answers!
Depression and Alzheimer’s can go hand in hand.
And since they both are linked to the chemistry of your brain, they can be incredibly hard to treat.
But it looks like this could all be about to change.
Because researchers have found that an all-natural power supplement can help balance your brain chemistry and shield you from both of these devastating diseases.
Let’s dive in…
I’ve been taking SAM-e to help with my depression for about 6 months and it REALLY works! I can’t remember the last time I felt this good. I also seem to be remembering things better – is this a possible effect?
Thanks for the great question, James.
SAM-e (S-Adenosylmethionine) is a natural compound that helps process several brain chemicals like serotonin, melatonin and dopamine. It’s as if SAM-e can balance and organize these chemicals in a way that allows your brain to use them quicker and more effectively, which helps relieve your depression symptoms.
Since all of these chemicals play vital roles in mood and brain functions, it would make sense that SAM-e would have an impact on your brain in other areas like memory loss or even Alzheimer’s.
In fact, that’s exactly what some new research just found.
Recent animal and lab studies show that SAM-e can help nip Alzheimer’s in the bud by protecting brain cells from beta-amyloid proteins, the root cause of dementia. Stopping the growth of these proteins is the key to halting the progression of the disease.
Experts report that SAM-e is so effective against beta-amyloid because it can up your levels of glutathione, a potent antioxidant that can help neutralize the oxidative stress and inflammation that damage the brain.
Additionally, research shows that folks who suffer from Alzheimer’s and/or depression have very low levels of SAM-e. This means by upping your SAM-e levels, you can help your body fight both of these devastating conditions.
SAM-e is natural but isn’t found in any foods. So you have to take it as a supplement.
Fortunately, you can find SAM-e at your local pharmacy or vitamin shop.
