The medial temporal lobe is the area of the brain that atrophies to cause the cognitive decline characteristic of Alzheimer's Disease.  Gwenaelle Douaud, from the University of Oxford (United Kingdom), and colleagues administered a combination of vitamin B12 (500 µg), vitamin B6 20 mg, and folic acid, or placebo, to 156 older men and women, for a two-year period. 

The researchers observed that the 80 subjects receiving B vitamins showed significantly less brain degeneration, as compared to the placebo group. Specifically, the plasma homocysteine levels were lowered by 29%. 

Submitting that: "Our results show that B-vitamin supplementation can slow the atrophy of specific brain regions that are a key component of the [Alzheimer's Disease] process and that are associated with cognitive decline," the study authors conclude that: "Further B-vitamin supplementation trials focusing on elderly subjects with high homocysteine levels are warranted to see if progression to dementia can be prevented."

Our Bare Skin Care products promote natural skin care and can be used for wrinkles, acne reduction, scar reduction, skin lightening and more. 

My personal recommendations for vitamin supplements:

                   Multiple B vitamin supplement daily

                   CoEnzyme Q10 - 100 mg, starting age 40; up to 300 mg if heart disease

                   Melatonin - 300 mg at bedtime

                   Baby Aspirin over age 50 - one daily

Bare Skin Care - Is it possible for a retinol eye cream to make my under-eye wrinkles worse?

by Charles Bollmann May 28, 2019

First, the answer is yes, retinol can make wrinkles worse, especially when you first start using it. What is happening is a drying effect, and one can get epidermal sliding from separation from the dermis. But this is temporary, and will eventually end up tightening the skin around the eyelids, provided you are using a potent retinol preparation.
