A Lack of B6 Linked to Cognitive Decline


Vitamin B6, uncommonly known as pyridoxine hydrochloride, may play a large role in defending the brain against the rigors of aging, according to a paper published in Nutrients. Researchers in Scotland examined 155 subjects who had taken part in a previous cognitive functioning study from four years prior. During the original inquiry, all the participants exhibited normal cognition. Four years later, the scientists re-tested for mental acuity as well as for pertinent biomarkers.

Nearly three-fourths of the test subjects regularly consumed foods fortified with B-vitamins. However, it was sufficient amounts of vitamin B6 that correlated with healthy brain activity.  Those with low levels of the vitamin were 3.5 times more likely to see a drop in cognitive functioning. A marked decline was also noticed in those with merely sufficient levels of B6, indicating that B6 may be more important to healthy aging than once believed.

Peak Endurance offers a battery of six B vitamins (including 50% of your daily vitamin B6) in every serving. Additionally, AIM’s Peak Endurance provides adenosine triphosphate (ATP), “the currency of cellular energy.”  ATP levels tend to decline with age, making Peak Endurance a wonderful and tasty supplement for those looking to keep their mind and body in top shape during their golden years.

We hear that Peak Endurance is also pretty good before a workout.
