(NaturalNews) Go ahead and tell someone that they should give their loved one, who is suffering from Alzheimer's Disease (AD) or Dementia, a dose of vitamin B12 that is 300 times the recommended daily intake, and they'll probably cover their ears and run the other way or tell you they are afraid of "overdosing."

In fact, most people don't even know where vitamin B12 comes from, or what the body needs it for in the first place. On top of that, there are several myths about vitamin B12 that need to be dispelled, and several misconceptions of where it comes from in its most natural, most beneficial form.

There is a widespread belief that meat is the primary source of vitamin B-12; however, many nutritionists and their research reflect that cooked animal protein actually impairs the ability of the body to absorb this essential vitamin.

The vitamin is heat sensitive, and therefore normal cooking can destroy up to 90 percent of its usefulness. So then what foods do we turn to in order to find useful vitamin B-12? Although animal and dairy products are a "popular source", the natural soil microbes and bacteria found on wild food, such as unwashed garden plants, are typically enough to supply many of your vitamin B12 needs.

In other words, organic vegetables, which most likely are not doused in pesticides, herbicides and insecticides, have exactly what the body needs. The "sterile" process of washing your vegetables is mainly known to be done to remove the chemical agents farmers use to keep away pests and bugs from destroying them, but that same "sterilizing process" also washes away soil microbes and bacteria that grow on raw fruits and vegetables, which our bodies need to duplicate in the intestinal tract for proper "assimilation" of vitamin B-12 to take place.

The ultimate source of all nature's B-12 is manufactured by the friendly bacteria in an animal's intestinal tract, and this is true for all vegetarian animals, including human beings.

Alzheimer's is a degenerative disease, which may have its beginnings rooting from a deficiency of vitamin B-12. Humans are born with serum levels of B-12 at about 2,000 pg/ml. This level often declines steadily throughout life, giving "credit" to common Western diet.

If consumers and natural medicine advocates can keep an open mind when addressing AD, we give our loved ones a fair chance at stopping AD in its tracks and possibly reversing dementia, and according to recent research, the earlier you address the problem, the better fighting chance you have of reducing or even defeating it.

In the early 1980's, my grandmother Esther began showing signs and symptoms of dementia. At the time, I was about 13 years old, and when my parents brought me to visit her at my Aunt's home, my grandmother barely recognized me.

My father said she was having problems with her memory, and then she actually walked us into a bathroom as she offered to show us her "bedroom." Within two years, she did not recognize even her closest family members, including her husband. It was a total nightmare for the entire family, and Grandma Ester lived liked this for over ten years.

Could vitamin B-12 have been the remedy? I wish we had known about it then so we could have tried it. So clear the clouds of doubt you have about vitamin B-12. If it can't hurt, and can only help, why wouldn't you try it?

It's water soluble, so if you take "too much," your body will simply excrete the excess. There are no proven side effects. So, if a simple at home nutritional program could actually save your loved one from a degenerative disease that is considered "worse than death," why wouldn't you try it?
