I recently came across something that seems to revive the brains of those suffering from this horrible affliction [Alzheimer's Disease]. Some of you may be familiar with Doctor Mercola, anyway he sent out an video link in his last email update about VCO & Alzeimers. I highly recommend that anyone dealing with this affliction on any level take the time to view it. I was SO impressed that I upped my personal intake of VCO as a preventive. Apparently the medium chain fatty acids are the perfect brain food. When combined with ALL the other good that VCO provides, its a no brainer (no pun intended).

Coconut Oil cited as Alzheimer Remedy
I recently received this article on the benefits of coconut oil against Alzheimer's. Others may be interested, too!

[YEA] Drinking coffee has been tipped as a possible way of delaying and even preventing Alzheimer's disease in previous research. However these studies have only ever involved a small number of people and were reliant on participants remembering how much tea and coffee they drank earlier in their lives.
This latest study showed that cognitive decline was significantly less among people who drank three cups of coffee every day. These findings add weight to the body of existing evidence suggesting long-term caffeine intake may have a protective effect against the onset of Alzheimer's disease.
It is too soon to say our morning coffee or afternoon cup of tea is anything more than a pleasant pick-me-up. It is important to now research further how caffeine consumption impacts on dementia risk.Replied by Bonnyjishop

I couldn't find "Niacinamide" nor "B3" listed under the big main "Supplements" Tab, so I'll put it here.
Also, I note some topics have a "Remedies Wanted" URL link on the right, yet others like this Alzheimers don't?
Supposedly, according to very recent research at UC Irvine on mice, daily high doses of plain old niacinamide form of Vitamin B3 (NOT the niacin form, which gives the "hot flush"), in amounts equivalent to 2000-3000 mg/day per adult human divided into 4 doses, totally reverses Alzheimers within about 4 months!
The B Vitamins are all water soluble, so like Vitamin C to get maximum flooding of body tissues they need to be taken in doses spread out throughout the day.
Any Search with about 4 of the keywords will return dozens of results. This one is late 2009:
How does niacinamide work? Neurons are constructed with microtubules. These are scaffolding within the cells that conduct information. When the microtubules break down, the cells can die.
The tubules are like highways inside cells. Dr. Green said that niacinamide is "making a wider more stable highway. " Alzheimer's disease breaks down the highway (tubules). But niacinamide prevents this from happening.
I've previously told you how the toxic metal mercury also destroys these microtubules, potentially causing Alzheimer's disease. So anything that can prevent the damage or reverse it is a huge discovery.
Note that the mice were bred with a genetic defect to produce the amyloid plaques, so it seems the niacinamide just completely overrides that. IOW, it did not eliminate the plaques!
The articles in the Search give slight variants of the dosage. Another article says " 500mg 4 to 6 times/day".
If you have dementia of any kind, consider niacinamide, 1, 500 mg twice daily.
EC: Hi Tom,
Thanks for the suggestion. New B-3 (Niacin/Niacinamide) supplements page created.Replied by Gavin
