Whenever I talk to someone who is losing their memory, I can hear the fear in their voice. Most of them fear Alzheimer's disease. But you don't have to get Alzheimer's to be affected. Memory loss is all too common without the dreaded disorder. I've showed you several nutrients that can help. And today I'd like to show you three more that can protect your brain and reduce your risk of memory loss.

The first nutrient can slow cognitive decline by 30%. That's what researchers said about those people who have more biologically active vitamin B12 in their body. One way to know your vitamin B levels are low is your homocysteine levels. In fact, when your homocysteine levels double, these researchers found that it can increase your rate of cognitive decline by 50%.

Another study looked at omega-3 intake. These researchers found that the more fish you eat, the less cognitive decline you'll have. They found the maximum benefit at a mean daily fish intake of approximately 75 grams (about 2.5 ounces). And another study actually measured omega-3 fatty acids in the blood of the participants. Those with higher levels had less cognitive loss over three years.

Finally, yet another study suggests that small amounts of melatonin may be beneficial in slowing cognitive decline. In this study, the researchers divided the participants into two groups. One group took 3-9 mg of fast-release melatonin at bedtime for 9-18 months. The other group took a placebo. The researchers said those who took the melatonin showed significantly better performance on various mental tests (including the Mini Mental State Examination, the Alzheimer's Disease Assessment Scale, and others). They also said these participants had significantly reduced levels of depression (a major problem that often accompanies dementia).

Please try these remedies before giving into what your orthodox doctor would call "the inevitable."

You can take vitamin B12 orally, but it's much more effective when given as an injection. Your alternative-minded doctor can help determine which would be better for you.

If you want to eat fish, make sure it's wild Alaskan salmon. All other fish is just too toxic. I prefer you to get your omega-3s from plant sources. I've written about a fantastic source of omega-3 that's even better than salmon in the upcoming issue of Second Opinion
. If you haven't subscribed yet, now's a great time to do so. You can sign up on my website. Other plant sources of omega-3 include hemp oil, flax oil, and to a lesser extent, walnut oil.
