As researchers learn more about Alzheimer’s disease, one thing is clear: The plaques that build up in the brain and cause symptoms of dementia are strongly connected with low thiamine levels. In fact, in an animal study, Cornell researchers found that thiamine deficiency reduces protective activity in the brain by 80%. By the time folks notice memory loss, they are likely already low in thiamine. That’s why I recommend taking 300 mg. of benfotiamine daily.
The wardrobe tweak to FEEL YOUR BEST
One of the easiest ways to foster joy and good health: tailoring your clothes to your unique needs. When deciding what to wear, consider the radiant energy of the colors in your closet. Each one has an effect on your body, and color therapy has been used for centuries in the treatment of disease and injury. Anxious? Pick a blue top, which promotes tranquility and calmness. Sad? Add a pop of yellow. The sunny color has been shown to boost cheer. Grieving? Choose pink, which can help heal sadness and loss.
