Look after your brain, Part 5.

This is another bookmarking post.

I spotted an article by Emily Deans M.D. called Nutritional Brain Bomb - Thiamine Deficiency.

So there's yet another way to knacker the brain, resulting in Wernicke's encephalopathy and in severe cases, Korsakoff's psychosis. Both of these conditions are partially irreversible due to neuron death. Both of these conditions are partially reversible by high-dose thiamine therapy.

Thiamine 500mg/day is one last therapy to try mum on after I've got her back on Vitamin K2 (hopefully today).

Continued on Quality >> Quantity.

Thiamine didn't make any difference and the capsules were huge, so I discontinued them.
