The CURE For Alzheimer's Disease Anyone Can Afford
Scientists found out that a form of vitamin B3, nicotinamide, also known as niacinamide, can restore the memory loss caused by Alzheimer's disease.
The human dose equivalent of 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams of niacinamide was injected into mice who had Alzheimer's disease. After four months of this regimen, the mice cognitive abilities were restored. Niacinamide protected mice brains from further loss of memory and restored what was lost. Excitedly, the researchers said that the mice were cured.
Studies have shown that 2,000 to 3,000 milligrams in humans is totally harmless. As a matter of fact, dosages approaching 375,000 milligrams per day (almost a pound!) could be toxic. Prescribed Alzheimer's drugs cause over 250,000 deaths every year!
An expert on niacinamide, Dr. William Kaufman, has determined that the body can only absorb 250 mg (milligrams) at any one time. He and his wife have been taking six doses of niacinamide totalling 1,500 mg a day for over 55 years!. Dr. Kaufman says that 1,500 mg is a good maintenance dosage.
Based on a patient's Alzheimer's disease severity, Dr. Kaufman has prescribed anywhere from 1,500 to 4,000 mg of niacinamide a day. His observations have shown that people with Alzheimer's disease would achieve optimum results if they took 250 mg every 1-1/2 hours (for a total of 12 doses.)
Niacinamide is water-soluble and quickly absorbed. After about three hours, the vitamin will have cleared the body.
Many niacinamide products on the market have preservatives. Results are much better with preservative-free capsules. One such product is Freeda Vitamins. Freeda Vitamins is located at 47-25 34th Street, 3rd floor in Long Island City, New York 11101; their toll-free number is 800-777-3737.
History of Alzheimer's Disease
Currently (2011), 5,300,000 Americans have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease; that number is expected to grow to over 14 million by the year 2050! Globally, there are 26.6 million cases of Alzheimer's. This number is projected to quadruple to over 100 million by 2050.
Alzheimer's has grown so fast in America that it is now the fourth leading cause of death - after cancer, heart disease, and strokes.
Alzheimer's is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer who lived from 1864 to 1915. Dr. Alzheimer was a German psychiatrist who discovered that this dreaded disease was organic, and not a mental psychosis.
During Dr. Alzheimer's lifetime, top American psychiatrists promoted the idea that Alzheimer's disease was a psychosis caused by repressed memories, conflicts of a sexual nature, etc.
However, Dr. Alzheimer's conclusion held up strongly against all opposing beliefs because his evidence was so abundant and logic crystal clear. He is known in history as one of the fathers of neuropathology.
Alzheimer's disease is particularly difficult to treat because the brain is protected by what's called the blood-brain barrier. This barrier is a protective covering that allows oxygen and nutrients in but prevents bacteria and other dangerous substances from infiltrating it.
The primary pharmaceutical answer towards treating Alzheimer's disease is the drug Aricept. Its website contains this forthright statement:
"Alzheimer's is an illness that gets worse over time ... Slowing the symptoms of Alzheimer's may mean still being able to dress, make phone calls, or bathe without help a while longer."
Statistically, if you are over the age of 65, there is a one in ten probability that you have Alzheimer's.
Alzheimer's Miracle - Niacinamide
Even laboratory mice with no trace of Alzheimer's disease had their memories and behavior improve by introducing niacinamide into their diet. Beyond 50 years of age, most of us will experience an occasional memory slip - we will draw a blank when trying to recall something.
Niacinamide is present in foods like turkey, pork, peanuts, chicken, veal, fish, salmon, tuna, and sunflower seeds. The caveat is that you would find it impossible to eat enough food to get therapeutic quantities.
Niacinamide is cheap; you can purchase perservative-free niacinmide at Puritan's Pride.
