Memory! Memory! Memory! Is it all about senior moments like forgetting a client’s name you’ve known for over 30 years or where did I leave my car keys? With all the talk about Alzheimer’s disease, it’s easy to start to begin worrying about losing our memory. But with just a little new knowledge about how the brain and memory function together, we can start to unravel the modern confusion about memory. The answer to how to understand more about your memory is as close as three good questions and a simple inexpensive nutritional supplement. You don’t have to be a neurobiologist to understand the nuts and bolts of good memory. But asking one about your memory is a good idea. When asked by a seventy year old women who had reached the point of being unable to remember anything from one day to the next, Dr. Robert Russell, a gastroenterologist and director of Tufts Human Nutrition Research Center found the answer, in one single pill. While her family was frantic that she might be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, Dr Russell knew that aging causes the lining of the stomach to thin, which decreases the production of hydrochloric acid. And without sufficient hydrochloric acid, the body cannot absorb Vitamin B12 from the food we eat. The brain needs vitamin B12 and Vitamin6 to remember better! The woman’s memory started to improve immediately as she added the Vitamin B supplements to her diet. This show explains three key things you need to know to have a great memory!
