      A dietary supplement containing a blend of thirty vitamins and minerals—all natural ingredients widely available in health food stores—has shown remarkable anti-aging properties that can prevent and even reverse massive brain cell loss, according to new research from McMaster University.

      It’s a mixture scientists believe could someday slow the progress of catastrophic neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, ALS and Parkinson’s.

      I was curious about what thirty vitamins and minerals were in the supplement cocktail, so I searched for info about their previous studies.

      THE 30 NUTRIENTS USED IN THIS STUDY:

        Vitamin B1
        Vitamin B3 (niacin)
        Vitamin B6
        Vitamin B12
        Folate
        Vitamin C
        Vitamin D
        Acetyl-L-carnitine

        Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin)
        Beta-carotene
        Bioflavonoids
        Chromium picolinate
        Garlic

      Two other important pieces of information:

      A series of studies published over the last decade and a half have shown its benefits in mice
      The next step in the research is to test the supplement on humans, likely within the next two years, and target those who are dealing with neurodegenerative diseases.

      The mice were fed the supplement on small pieces of bagel each day over the course of several months.

      Apparently the bagel is a secret 31st nutrient!
