( — July 13, 2021) Orlando, FL — In 2015, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia have been found to produce a cost of $226 billion in the U.S. By 2050, this cost is projected to rise to $1.1 trillion. 

It is worth mentioning that on a global scale, around 46.8 million people have Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. The staggering statistics of this condition in many areas around the globe continue to alarm more and more experts.

Due to the staggering statistics of Alzheimer’s, more and more experts carry out studies to learn more about how the brain can be provided with added protection.

A new study was carried out by the Duke University School of Medicine.

In this study, it has been found that magnetic stimulation of the brain enhances working memory. The findings of this research have led scientists to suggest that this could provide hope for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease. 

The research findings were published in PLoS One. 

It has further been shown that healthy younger and older adult participants who received repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) therapy performed better on a memory task than during an rTMS-like placebo.

According to Lysianne Beynel, Ph.D., now that they have shown that these specific parameters can improve performance in healthy subjects, we will be able to extend it to populations with memory deficits.

Beynel is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. 

It is interesting to note that among the studies carried out to investigate dementia are those looking into the therapeutic goodness of certain nutrients. In some research studies, it has been found B vitamins may produce a range of brain-health benefits.

A study from Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences was recently carried out.

This research involved more than 150 seniors with mild cognitive impairment who were at increased odds of developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.

The study findings have shown that the group treated with vitamin B supplement had reduced gray matter shrinkage compared to the placebo group. It is worth noting that grey matter in the brain tends to shrink when cognitive decline is developing. 

Due to the results, the researchers suggest that vitamin B supplementation may slow the atrophy of particular brain regions, which are a key component of the Alzheimer’s process. These brain regions are also linked with cognitive decline.

While B vitamins can be obtained from various foods, there are also supplements available. One to consider is Purest Vantage Vitamin B Complex, which is popularized by its high potency and purity.

It contains Choline, Pantothenic acid, Biotin, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Niacin, Riboflavin, Thiamin, and vitamin B6 ( ).
