It’s Never Too Late to Properly Feed Your Brain
Getting enough folate? Folate is one of the most important nutrients that is essential for life. Folic acid deficiency has been linked to dementia, anemia, cancer, mental illness, and birth defects. This is why it’s commonly added to food and prenatal vitamins as a preventative measure.
The problem with depending on your food or prenatal vitamins for folate, is that the best type of folate - methylfolate, is rarely used. Most of the time they use a synthetic form that is hard to assimilate, with around half the population not being able to fully benefit from it.
Fortunately there’s a great way to get your dose of the right type of folate...our very own TianChi! We use Quatrefolic, an excellent form of methylfolate, because it’s a powerful nutrient for your brain and can be properly absorbed.
Folate deficiency can show up in as little as a few weeks, setting you up for the type of mental decline seen in early stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
These types of conditions don’t just show up out of nowhere, but can be linked to long-term deficiencies of nutrients. Folate deficiency can even lead to numerous types of brain atrophy, setting the stage for a very frightening diagnosis.
Always remember that memory issues are rarely related to only one thing, but often to a decades long lack of nutrition and inflammation in your brain.
Lowering your stress levels and feeding your brain essential nutrients, such as methylfolate may be your best bet to heading into your later years with a strong and active mind, and it’s never too late to start!
