Use Iron and B Vitamins To Improve Your Brain Activity
by Rudy Silva  

When a person is deficient in iron, they may have difficulty in keeping a conversation
or in keeping a good attention span.

The actual ability to absorb iron into your body is dependent on the amount of acid
you have in your stomach. If you have acid reflux or heartburn and are using drugs or
antacids to get relief, you are affecting your ability to absorb iron.

To absorb iron, the pH in your stomach has to be normal, 1 - 2 pH. Under these
conditions, iron in your stomach chemically reacts with other chemicals and is
prepared for absorption in the small intestine.

When you take drugs to reduce the acid in your stomach, the iron does not
chemically react and change for proper absorption in the intestine. The result is iron
deficiency.

Here are some of the best foods that have iron.

Fired liver, fried kidney, fired chicken liver, wheat bran, ovaltine, coco powder,
spinach, parsley, radishes, peas, leeks, carob bar, sesame seeds, pistachio nuts, dried
coconut, cashew nuts, muesli, cornflakes, oatmeal, brown rice, total cereal, baked
potato

Use 25 to 50 mg of iron supplement daily. If you take iron supplements check with
your doctor to see if you really need them. Take excessive iron can result in
poisoning. Keep iron supplements away from children

B-Vitamins

The B-vitamin folic acid and B12 have also been a major problem in the US. B12 has
been consistently found deficient in people with Alzheimer's. Folic acid and B12 have
been found to improve mental health in people who were in metal institutions.

Folic acid and B12 work to produce neurotransmitters and replace nerve cells. The
lack of neurotransmitters is responsible for loss of a good memory.

To make sure B vitamins work for you in keeping your mental capacities in tack start
making sure you are getting them in your diet or taking them as a supplement. If
supplementing, use the B50 or B100 complex.

It appears that after a certain age B12 will not help in alleviating mental changes or
problems.

Here are some of the best foods that have B vitamins.


It is always best to get your minerals and vitamins in food. In food, minerals and
vitamins are combined with other chemicals that allow your body to absorb them
better than supplements.

Iron and Dementia

In the US iron deficiency has
been found to be a major
problem in people of all ages.
Everyone knows the lack of iron
causes anemia. Iron is the center
of our red blood cells, which
allow oxygen to be carried
throughout your body and into
your brain. Your brain uses over
20% of the oxygen available in
the blood. Lack of oxygen has a
major impact on your brain's
health and in the formation of
dementia.
