Treatment of Dementia - DEMO


Pyridoxine and Biotin:  Pyridoxine (B6) is found in wheat germ, potatoes, dried beans, bananas, chicken, and fish.  Biotin (B7) is found in bananas, watermelon, grapefruit, peanuts, liver, and egg yolks.  B6 is responsible for redistributing amino acids in order to create the body's much-needed proteins.  B6 is also needed to form various enzymes.  B7 has several roles for keeping the body functioning properly, such as breaking down fats, proteins, and carbohydrates and turning them into energy.  A B6 deficiency may cause high blood pressure and anemia.  A deficiency of B7 may cause impairment in growth and/or neurological disorders in infants.

Folic Acid and Cobalamin:  Vitamin B9 is found in leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, dried beans, and wheat bread.  Vitamin B12 is found in poultry and dairy products.  Folic acid is beneficial for cell growth and division, and is especially important during pregnancy.  B9 helps control mood, appetite, and sleep patterns.  B12 helps convert proteins, fats, and carbohydrates into energy and helps form the protective covering of nerve cells.  Both B9 and B12 are important factors of B-Complex vitamins because they help keep arteries open, red blood cells healthy, and help prevent heart disease.
