A recent survey found that a staggering 92% of people said they had “senior moments” every day. Do you constantly “misplace” your car keys? Or get up and walk into another room, only to forget what you came there for?
I always tell people that “B” Vitamins are called “B for Brain”. Every action of the brain needs lots and lots of B vitamins, every single day. Yet, these are practically non-existent in the Standard American Diet (SAD). No wonder its called SAD; unhappiness, anger tantrums and depression are the first signs of vitamin B deficiency in the brain.
But lack of B vitamins can lead to something far worse. Alzheimer’s, the unknown disease just a few years ago now seems to strike every single family with devastating effect.
My own family has been “struck” by Alzheimer’s. My dear old Auntie Gladys, was reduced to a life of a zombie, living in a constant fog, not recognizing any of us towards her untimely death a few years ago.
But good news is here! Mother Nature, as always, has an answer!
“Homocysteine” – Is this what causes Alzheimer’s?
The next time you get a cholesterol check up, ask for – NO, DEMAND – a “Homocysteine” check as well. Most doctors won’t tell you to get one because there is no kickback of big buck$ from drug companies, as there is no drug for treating homocysteine.
Homocysteine occurs naturally in the bloodstream and comes from an amino acid called “methionine”, which is present in all animal and vegetable protein. As part of the digestive process, methionine is broken down into homocysteine. As long as certain helper nutrients are present (like vitamin B6) homocysteine subsequently converts back into one of two harmless amino acids.
The typical American diet is chronically low in vitamin B6 and nowhere near the amount needed to protect the body. Just last week we introduced a new study out of Oxford University suggesting high doses of B vitamins (B6, B12, Folate) may HALVE THE RATE of brain shrinkage in older people experiencing some of the warning signs of Alzheimer’s disease.

Until your homocysteine levels are below 7, you are in extreme danger. (I know some people with homocysteine scores in the 20’s.)
Mega B-Vitamins & the Mystery Compound “Trimethylglycine”
As the Oxford University study suggests, high B-vitamin intake defuses homocysteine in the bloodstream, so it can’t flow into the brain and cause the glue-like plaque that jams up the neurons and destroys memory capacity.
Ten years ago I came across another amazing compound in Mother Nature’s cupboard of goodies that works even more powerfully than B-vitamins on homocysteine! It’s called “Trimethyglycine” or “TMG” and is a true miracle compound.
I found it in some voluminous research journals that delved into the actions of the common garden beet on cholesterol, triglycerides and lipids. TMG literally “defuses” the homocysteine immediately on impact, rendering it harmless on the body, particularly delicate brain tissue.
I figured when TMG was combined with B-vitamins and heart-healthy Magnesium, you’d have a super cocktail for the brain and the cardiovascular system, so I went to work to create a blockbuster formula. (This was 10 years ago and at the time, I was amazed that no one else in the alternative or natural medicine community had come up with it!)
The name says it all:
CHOLEST for Cholesterol
STEINE for Homocysteine
Cholesteine incorporates ultra-powerful, all-natural substances proven to reduce “bad” cholesterol (LDL), boost “good” cholesterol (HDL), lower dangerous trigylcerides and lipid levels and dramatically lower homocysteine counts.
I added every conceivable nutrient I could find to fight the twin dangers of high “bad” cholesterol and homocysteine. Natural compounds like:
- Vitamins B6 and Folic Acid (folate)
- Red Yeast Rice (to lower “bad” cholesterol)
- Garlic (to boost “good” HDL cholesterol)
- Fenugreek Seed
- Bupleurum Root (famous Chinese liver tonic)
- Taurine (the magic amino acid that conjugates bile and bad cholesterol)
- Artichoke Extract
- Flax Seed Powder
- Trace Minerals
- Beta Sitosterol
It’s a “who’s who” of fighting dangerous cholesterol and homocysteine.
|Declare War on Alzheimer’s No drug can match the proven power of Mother Nature when it comes to improving one’s health and well being.

Further Tips & Suggestions:
- Cut back or eliminate all dairy; milk, cheese, butter and ice cream. These are pure homocysteine-generating foods. Switch to soy or almond milk or hemp milk.
- Limit your red meat intake. Red meat dramatically increases cholesterol scores with homocysteine right behind it. Switch to tofu and tempeh and wheat meat.
- Walk every day for 30-45 minutes, the oxygen fights the cholesterol and homocysteine.
- Never eat a junk food hamburger or melted cheese pizza again. They are a gory mess of cholesterol and homocysteine.
- Add beets to your diet. Juice them or bake them like a potato or chop into smaller chunks and drizzle with olive oil and bake for 30 minutes and fight homocysteine at mealtime.
As always, here’s to your Contagious Health!
