It’s a well known fact that daily alcohol consumption leads to worsening your brain health, especially your memory and recalling. A recent Austrian study has found an explanation for that.
According to the study, high alcohol consumption leads to elevated iron levels in the blood and vitamin B1 deficiency, which, among other factors, is important for maintaining the blood-brain barrier. As a result, iron enters the brain and accumulates there, causing oxidative tissue damage. You can notice that as inability to memorise, to retrieve information from your memory, and to think clearly and fast.
Researchers believe that an intake of vitamin B1 can protect the brain from this accumulation and therefore can be used for preventive and therapeutic purposes.
