Do you have any suggestions as to what nutritional supplement is available to restore short term memory?
There are a couple supplements worth considering. One is our Brain Energizer, which is an all natural supplement that uniquely combines 6 ingredients that have demonstrated incredible results in clinical trials. The Brain Energizer contains DHA which help protect the signals being sent from cell to cell through out the brain as well as a host of antioxidants to help reduce free radical damage. It also contains nutrients that help with inflammation and increase blood circulation and oxygen to the brain-- So that's an excellent formula.
Another supplement worth considering is Lecithin. It helps support brain health from a variety of angles. It not only provides the brain with fatty compounds that support the health of the brain, it also helps support the health of brain cells, nerve tissues and the white matter of the brain.
What is the ideal level of Vitamin D one should have? I want to get my lab work done.
Ideally, the optimal vitamin D3 levels in blood should be around 50 ng/ml. If you have over 100 ng/ml, that is reaching toxicity. However, levels lower than 30 suggest a deficiency that should be immediately addressed.
Are there other sources of CoQ10? How do I know if I need to supplement? All I read on this subject is, "If you're over 30, you need it." In addition, how much should I take, 100, 200mg, or more?
Studies have shown that after the age of 30, our bodies produce much less coQ10 than what was produced when we were born, which is why supplementing with coQ10 is suggested. Natural sources of coQ10 include oily fish such as wild salmon, tuna and mackerel, organ meats (livers, hearts) and whole grains. As for dosage suggestion, if you are dealing with any cardiovascular issues or on a statins, consider taking 200 mg or more. If not, you can go with less and make sure you eat the foods that contain coQ10 about 2 times a week to add to the supplement. One "rule of thumb" is that you should take 1 mg per 1 pound of body weight, so that may be a good place to start.
I've been reading that vitamin B3 (niacinimide) inhibits the advancement of Altzheimer's. Any comment as to the truth of that?
It appears that B3 may be of come benefit in slowing the onset of alzheimer's. Jean actually wrote about vitamin B3, also known as niacin, or niacinimide, in her new book (due out late September, 2010). There have been several studies regarding the possible advantages for supplementing high doses of vitamin B3 and it seems to demonstrate very positive results in reducing one's risk for developing the disease. We will soon be launching 30 new products and niacinimide is among the list so stay tuned, it has so many other benefits associated with it as well.
