Fire bug strikes again

• By Julia Evans

AN ARSONIST continues to

operate in Burnside and Ilam.

Last week Nor’West News revealed

there have been a series of

arson attacks in the area around

Greers Rd where wheelie bins, a

car and a for sale sign had been

set alight.

At the weekend three more

bins were set on fire, two on

Westburn Tce and one on Greers

Rd.

A police dog unit was sent to

the area to attempt to track the

offender or offenders at about

3.30am on Saturday. The offender

was not found.

But resident James Wallace,

whose flaming bin scorched

the side of his house while his

children were asleep two weeks

ago, is not happy with the way

the police have responded to the

string of arsons.

Mr Wallace said it took six

days for police to contact him,

and he hasn’t heard from them

since.

Senior Sergeant Stephan

McDaniel said the police are currently

investigating the

fires.

“We’re pushing residents

to keep their bins in at night

and make sure they’re not

visible from the road,” he

said.

He said police take all arson

matters seriously.

Mr Wallace said the latest

attack in Greers Rd was within

100m of his property, just across

the road.

“It was up beside their house.

It did damage to the ground and

the concrete wall,” he said.

It’s was only a matter of time

before one of the fires spreads to

a house and claims a life.

“It’s not like tagging, it has the

potential to burn a house down,”

he said.

One of the fires on Westburn

Tce was also up against the side

of the house.

The other bin on fire on Westburn

Tce is the second time it has

been set alight, the Fire Service

said.

“Hopefully, there will be more

public vigilance around it,” Mr

Wallace said.

Touching tribute

to mine disasters

• By Julia Evans

A MOVING stage performance

about two tragic West Coast

mining disasters had a very

personal connection for two of

the participants.

Burnside High School won

the first night of Stage Challenge

& J Rock last Thursday, with a

powerful performance on the

2010 Pike River mine tragedy

that claimed 29 lives, and the

1967 Strongman explosion that

killed 19 miners.

Burnside teacher and Stage

Challenge organiser Anastasia

Boyle said one of the students,

the production lost her brother

Mrs Boyle said before they

proceeded with the theme, she

asked Jorja to go and talk to her

family make sure they weren’t

going to be upset by it.

Not only were they okay with

the theme, they felt “so honoured”

by the choice, she said.

Another student Aliyah

Prendegast’s great grand-father

was in the Strongman Mine and

was hauled to safety by two of his

best mates.

“All these close connections

felt like fate, it was meant to be,”

Mrs Boyle said.

THE FIRE bug continues to

operate in Burnside and Ilam.

The arsonist was active again at

the weekend, setting fire to wheelie

bins on private property – one of

the properties now being targeted

twice.

Police sent a dog unit to try

and track the offender after being

alerted by the Fire Service.

After what appears to have been

an investigative delay, Nor West

News is assured police are now

actively trying to find the offender.

Also on page 1 today, a very

High School which won the first

night of Stage Challenge & J Rock.

It is about the 2010 Pike River

and 1967 Strongman mine disasters.

One of the students lost a

brother at Pike; another’s great

grandfather was rescued from

Strongman. Very powerful.

Community centre delayed again

• By Julia Evans

THE SHIRLEY Community

Centre has hit yet another

stumbling block in its recovery.

Another delay has meant

instead of being completed in

2019, designs for the community

centre won’t begin until the

2020 to 2021 financial year.

City

councillor and

Papanui-Innes

Community

Board member

Mike Davidson

(left) said that’s

too far away.

“THere’s a genuine need in

the Shirley community,” he

said.

Cr Davidson said the

project has been pushed out

too many times so it’s a matter

of making sure it doesn’t get

pushed out too far and never

completed.

priority” to see the centre’s

rebuild get under way.

“It has been on the table

and off the table like a yo-yo,”

she told the city council at

the board’s draft Annual Plan

submission.

Ms Jones said the board had

received a flood of emails from

community groups wanting to

return to the area after being

displaced for six years.

“It’s been dangled in front of

that community for so many

years now,” she said.

In its draft Annual Plan

submission, the board asked

for the $153,000 earmarked for

2020-21 to be brought forward

to 2018-19.

New community centres are

being rebuilt such as those in

Halswell, Sumner, Lyttelton, Mt

Pleasant and even St Albans so

the board does not understand

why Shirley keeps being taken

off the table.

Last year the centre was one

of many city council projects

that was put on the back-burner,

much to the frustration of the

Shirley-Papanui Community

Board.

THe centre on Shirley Rd

closed after significant damage

during the February 22, 2011,

earthquake and was pulled

down in October 2012.

It was utilised for meetings,

art, pottery, yoga, karate,

aerobics, spinning, lace-making,

and dancing, and was largely

self-funded.

In Brief

GRAFFITI RISE

THere has been little change to the

list of suburbs most affected by

graffiti, except in Richmond. The

suburb has stormed its way onto

the top-10 list in the last month,

coming in at number five after a

73 per cent increase. St Albans has

always feature high on the list and

has not changed places at number

two but has seen a 15 per cent

decrease in graffiti reported in the

area throughout April.

PAPANUI PARALLEL

Work on the Papanui Parallel

cycleway is expected to be

completed before the end of the

month. The cycleway will connect

Northlands Shopping Centre

and the Northern Line Cycleway

to the central city via Colombo

St, Rutland St, Grassmere St

and Sawyers Arms Rd. The city

council said it is expected to

attract new commuters, shoppers

and recreational cyclists alongside

those attracted to it for its level of

service.

STOP SIGN FOR SAFETY

THe give way sign at the

McSaveneys and Marshland Rd

intersection will be changed to a

stop sign. This is to improve safety

at the intersection, which now

has restricted lines of site due to

recent upgrades at the corner of

Marshland and Mairehau Rd.

Ghost cities in China

St Albans

resident

Margot

Fluitsma

writes about

her trip China

where she saw

the bizarre

phenomena of Chinese

ghost cities

Over the past 36 years,

hundreds of cities have been

built from scratch in China to

accommodate for the country’s

urbanisation.

Many of these centres remain

unoccupied.

I witnessed these breathtaking

sights first hand while travelling

the country.

It is common to see bizarre

skylines in varying stages of

completion.

Identical high-rise apartment

complexes void of people, wide

roads void of traffic.

Many of the projects are fullscale

cities where you couldn’t

see any signs of life.

Some of these prefecture level

ghost cities are modelled on

iconic destinations. Most notably

there is a copycat Paris that

currently sits at one third of the

occupancy rate (fun fact, there

are at least three ‘Eifel Towers’ in

China) and then there is a replica

Manhattan ‘Yujiapu’ which sits

half-finished and completely

empty after construction ceased

in 2010.

These eye-wateringly ambitious

projects were the result of

China’s new-found prosperity

over the course of the last halfcentury.

The country’s burgeoning

middle-class had few options to

invest their money.

Excluding real estate, Chinese

could invest in one of two options

the bank or the domestic

stock market.

But as hordes of Chinese

continued to migrate from their

country dwellings to urban

centres, many investors saw real

estate as the most prosperous

financial move which explains

the phenomena of ghost cities.

In such a large and insulated

nation as China, it is difficult

to put an exact figure on how

many of these centres remain

unoccupied though the number

is thought to be into the high

hundreds.

But in a country of 1.3 billion,

these centres will likely fill up in

the years to come. Recent history

has proven this already.

Neighbouring centres to the

greater Shanghai area that once

had occupancy rates as low as 10

per cent but I saw first hand that

they are now bustling at 90 per

cent.

Demand will show its head but

I think it might just might take a

few years.

Readers respond to an

article about Housing

New Zealand tenants

developing a charter of

rights with the city council

Gary Knight – With the

revelation by Prime Minister

Bill English, for sale of up to

2500 state houses in November

rationale must prevail over this

issue.

In many cases the proposed

sell-off would have a devastating

effect on tenants in the Bryndwyr,

Riccarton and Shirley

areas where this is destined to be

actioned.

A myriad of tenants having

through varying circumstances

little or no choice but to reside

in a state house are facts that Mr

English as former housing minister

would be aware of and must

consider this vital aspect prior to

any sell off.

It is imperative that amalgamation

between the city

council and Fendalton-Waimari-

residents in these three areas

to state their views, concerns

and queries relative to inherent

Rob Eder – Always thought

good, people will still go there.

Jennie Moreton – You can

never get a park outside these

anything. People in this city

need to stop expecting to get a

park right outside the door of

everywhere they go. Park down

the road and walk to the shop or

Fresh water from new wells

A $15 million programme to

replace shallow wells supplying

water to 80,000 residents in the

north-west is progressing well,

with all those residents now

receiving water from 14 new deep

wells.

The remaining unconfined

shallow wells are being

upgraded as it is possible that

microbiological contaminants in

surface water could seep into the

aquifer.

In September last year, city

council agreed to fast-track

work to drill deeper wells in the

north-west as a response to the

contamination event in Havelock

North which heightened

concerns about water quality

nationwide.

Workers take samples from the

new Avonhead well.

City council planning

delivery manager three waters

and waste John Moore said the

programme was progressing

well, with 14 out of 28 new wells

already commissioned and in

use.

“In terms of the physical

drilling, we are halfway there

which is great progress and on

target for our planned finish in

June 2019.

“We’ve already been able to

decommission six of the old

wells and have turned off the

remaining old wells. As a health

and safety issue, we need to

retain the option to turn those

old wells back on until work is

complete on all 28 of the new

wells and we have them all fully

functional.”

Mr Moore said the current

water grading on the shallow

wells was D, compared to a B

grading across the rest of the city

where drinking water is sourced

from secure, deep wells.

The north-west water supply

zone stretches from Belfast

through to Yaldhurst and

includes parts of Riccarton and

Addington, supplying 80,000

people.

“We’ve got an excellent

working relationship with the

Canterbury District Health

Board and they’re happy with the

progress we are making on this

programme. It is a huge project

that started in 2012 and is going

to continue for two more years,

costing around $15 million. In

the end we will have a secure

supply of high-grade drinking

water for the north west of the

city.”

Mona Vale dilemma

• By Julia Evans

ARTISTS ARE queuing up for a

live-in residency opportunity at

Mona Vale.

But red tape is holding them

back.

Earthquake repairs to the

Mona Vale gatehouse on

Fendalton Rd are on track to

be completed by early

December.

But after a briefing from city

council staff, the Fendalton-

Waimairi-Harewood Community

Board turned down a

recommendation that the city

council would cover the cost of

any residency.

The initial proposal meant

the city council would cover the

full cost of artist’s rent for the

gatehouse, which the board did

not think was appropriate.

“The artist may leave behind

some artworks but they would

be living rent-free,” board chairman

David Cartwright said.

However, during the city

council’s draft Annual Plan submissions

city councillor Vicki

Buck questioned how close it

was to finding someone suitable.

She said she’d been approached

by several groups who

were desperate for it.

“There are a number of groups

of artists in residence that do

want to pay rent for that site,” Cr

Buck said.

Mr Cartwright said the board

was currently looking at alternatives

in which it might partner

with Canterbury University or

Ara, which already have residence

programmes.

“It’s a work in progress,” he

said.

Mayor Lianne Dalziel told

the board it would have to find

someone suitable before the

gatehouse is repaired.

Emergency

response

items sought

• By Julia Evans

THE BELFAST Emergency

Response Plan has expanded, as a

result of the tsunami alert after the

November 14 Kaikoura earthquake.

The plan began in 2014 as a

community run response for Civil

Defence emergencies.

However, it has now expanded to

include Spencerville and the Prestons

subdivision, which are closer

to the coast.

City council northern strengthening

communities adviser Christine

Lane said it’s a collaboration between

the city council and community

associations. It includes the Belfast

Community Network, Belfast

Rugby Club, Belfast Primary School,

Northwood and Belfast Residents’

associations, Belfast Bowls Club, the

Belfast Pharmacy and Belfast Medical

Centre, Salvation Army and the

Rotary Club of Belfast and Kaiapoi.

A Portacom sitting on Sheldon

Park acts as a hub, which Ms Lane

said is currently seeking donations.

“The next phase is to do more

marketing and get the container

filled with things that are relevant,”

she said.

Items sought include blankets,

rope, torches, axes and ladders.

Library being demolished

Work has begun on demolishing the

old Bishopdale Library. Although

the Farrington Ave library was not

completely written off by the February

22, 2011, earthquake, the damage was

significant enough that it was deemed

earthquake-prone and not fit for use.

The Fendalton-Waimairi-Harewood

Community Board approved removing

the building and will begin talks about

what to do with the site once it is clear.

Touching tribute to mine disasters

•From page 1

Aliyah brought in a necklace

her great-grandfather had

carved into the shape of a heart

for his fiancé out of coal from

the mine.

But not only was it powerful,

it was personal for two of the

100 year 9 and 10 students who

were a part of the performance.

Although there were tears

before, after and during the performance,

she said it sent chills

up her spine seeing the students

perform with such passion.

Performance judge Chris

Kirk said the performance was

“touching.”

“It was extremely personal

but they didn’t let it hold them

back,” he said.

Project to improve health

A GROUP of five Canterbury

health organisations are

collaborating to help improve

the lives of the region’s Pacific

communities through their

churches.

The initiative known as

the ‘Tutupu Project’ has been

widely welcomed.

Seven churches

from around

Christchurch

and as far afield

as Ashburton

and West

Melton are

Maria

Pasene

participating in

a nine-month

commitment

to educate and empower

nominated ‘health champions’

who will then take information

back to their communities.

“I wanted to be involved in

the Tutupu Project because

this is an opportunity for me

to learn and gather information

about health, so I can then

pass on to my family, church

and community,” said Teuila

Saafi, youth leader of Christchurch’s

Tongan Seventh Day

Adventist.

Pegasus Health, Community

and Public Health, Rural Canterbury

PHO, Etu Pasifika and

Healthy Families Christchurch

will mentor the health champions

in nutrition, exercise and

ways to improve their health

literacy.

Pegasus Health’s Pacific

health manager and project

leader, Maria Pasene, said the

health champions will attend

health education sessions to

expand their knowledge about

nutrition and the importance

of physical activity with a particular

focus on children and

young people.

“We have discussed the ways

in which Pacific peoples can

help clinicians to assist them

in their health journey. This

includes pushing past their

natural shyness, speaking

up and providing important

information at visits to the GP

and hospital and asking questions

when they aren’t sure

about what’s being discussed.

It’s important to assert our

needs to improve our communities’

health.”

Ms Pasene said Pacific communities

were at a point where

they see themselves as part of

the solution rather than the

problem.

“They are willing to investigate

ways to improve

the health of their families

and communities. We have

the ability to link them to

resources and services that will

work with them in a way that

makes sense, such as church

environments where Pacific

peoples naturally connect, support

and communicate with

each other.”

Neighbour

Hello

A taste of Germany

Sunday and Monday are rest days.

Tuesday is “back into business” day.

Wednesday afternoon, from 2.30pm

to 5pm, is Happy Coffee Hour day,

with hot drinks and cake so cheap

you might want to have more than

one. Thursday is Black Forest Gateau

day. Friday is pork hocks day, with

the hocks selling out so fast that

you better pre-order one. And

Saturday, well, that’s the day when

everyone needs everything for the

weekend. Sauerkraut, potato salad,

sausages for the BBQ, smallgoods,

cheeses, fresh bread and a spread

named “Fleischsalat” – which is

a delightful mixture of chopped

smallgoods, gherkins, spices and

mayonnaise. It is very German, like

most of the delicacies that are available at

Café Berlin, a German deli and café at the

corner of Normans and Wairakei Roads in

Strowan. As is the owner, Anneke Molly,

who opened the place in July 2015.

Molly has come a long way since.

Originally a chartered accountant, the

48-year old has upped her skills in the

food and hospitability sector. She has

learnt fast how to make perfect espresso

coffees (Hummingbird), she bakes the

popular bee sting (Bienenstich), a cake

filled with custard cream and topped

with caramelised almonds, and together

with two staff she prepares meatballs,

currywurst, potato salad and warming

winter soups that are on offer at the café.

Bread, rolls and pretzels (Brezeln) are

sourced from a German baker, and the

grainy rolls, pretzels and pretzel sticks

freshly baked on site several times a

day. A few German butchers deliver the

traditional smallgoods and a huge variety

of sausages that are made with imported

herbs and spices. “All our meat

products are gluten-free, without

gluten substitution, and are of the

highest standard”, says Molly who

also orders products on demand.

The fresh cheeses come from

Germany, the Netherlands, France

and Switzerland. Mixed platters

(eat-in, takeaway and catering) are

bestsellers.

The shelves are filled with pantry

items like Sauerkraut, red cabbage,

potato dumplings, pickled gherkins,

German vinegar, mustards and custards,

as well as a wide variety of sweets, from

chocolate over Haribo gummibears to

Niederegger marzipan. Next on the menu

will be Maultaschen, a meat-filled pasta

speciality looking like oversized ravioli,

and poppyseed cake (Mohnkuchen) during

winter.

Although the place sometimes is

brimming with backpackers from overseas

who miss European bread, Germans make

only about 40 per cent of the

customers. “Locals who have

travelled and go in for quality

love our café”, says Molly who

is not from Berlin but from a

city named Einbeck in Lower

Saxony. The Berlin name and

theme of the café has been

chosen because everyone

knows the capital of Germany

– and Berlin is easier to

pronounce than Köln or

München…

CBHS take top spot

in UC Championship

SPORTS

St Andrew’s first IX

fight for fourth place

• By Andrew King

CHRISTCHURCH Boys’

High are at the top of the UC

Championship table with a

convincing 76-3 win over Aoraki

Combined on Saturday, and

were the only north-west team to

record a victory in round four.

The defending champions

leaped Nelson College into the

top spot after the boys from the

north had a bye.

Up 45-3 at half-time, CBHS

kept the foot on the throttle with

first-five Ryan Barnes bagging 29

points, including a hat-trick and

seven conversions, and Jack Harris

in his first start also grabbing

three tries on the left wing.

CBHS coach Rob Smith said

it was a testament to doing the

basics well and playing for the

full 80 minutes.

Looking ahead to their home

game against Mid-Canterbury

Combined, Smith said they will

be wary about the physical nature

the boys from down south

play with.

Meanwhile, St Bede’s had their

first loss to St Thomas since 1983

when they went down 27-15 at

home on Saturday.

On top of missing out on

competition points, they also

relinquished their hold on the

Catholic Schools Trophy,

which St Bede’s have held for 10

years.

The trophy is competed for by

St Bede’s, St Thomas, Timaru’s

Roncalli College and Oamaru’s

St Kevin’s College.

St Bede’s will turn their

attention to their upcoming

home match against Burnside on

Saturday.

Burnside remain at the bottom

of the table without a win after

being beaten 33-10 by Waimea

Combined.

St Andrew’s travelled north

and were narrowly beaten by

Rangiora 28-22.

St Andrew’s spent their first

week of the competition on

the sideline with a bye before

travelling for the next three

rounds, recording two solid

away wins over Marlborough

and Aoraki Combined before

their first defeat to Rangiora.

Now they will relish their first

home game against Lincoln on

Saturday.

• By Andrew King

ST ANDREW’S have cracked the

top four in the Connetics first XI

football competition and will look

to continue their winning ways

when they meet Christchurch

Boys’ High in round four at

5.45pm tomorrow.

The match-up between fourth

placed St Andrew’s and 12th

placed CBHS at Christchurch

Football Centre will be an opportunity

for CBHS to get their

first win under their belt, while St

Andrew’s will want to keep up the

pressure on the top teams.

CBHS come off a bye, while

St Andrew’s had a great outing

against St Bede’s with a 5-0 win.

St Andrew’s coach Matthew

Jansen ​said CBHS put a dent in

their push for nationals last year

when they beat them 3-2, and

they will be looking to right that

wrong.

“(CBHS) are a tough squad and

will really be raring for the game

but so will we,” he said.

He said standout performances

from striker Declan Hickford,

who scored four goals, and goalkeeper

Ralph Clink, who kept a

clean sheet, contributed to a really

good result against St Bede’s.

Meanwhile, Burnside and Pa-

panui will square off against each

other at 4pm in another northwest

derby in which both teams

will be looking to add to their

season total of a win a piece.

Burnside gave a solid showing

against table-topping Cashmere in

round three, ending the game 4-4.

Papanui lost 2-0 to Middleton

Grange and will look to turn their

form around.

St Bede’s will face Cashmere at

7.30pm tomorrow in an attempt

to knock them off the top of the

table.

Cashmere could be slightly

distracted with their upcoming

match against Waimea College

where they will challenge for the

equivalent of the Ranfurly Shield,

the Alex Harvey Industries Cup,

in the Nelson region.

The last time Cashmere played

St Bede’s, they took the three

points with a 1-0 win.

Migraine relief

Your headache or migraine may literally be a pain in the neck

It’s not very well known that almost 13

percent of people – including childrensuffer

from headaches and migraines.

It is the 3rd most prevalent illness in

the world and causes 91 percent of the

people it affects to miss work or reduce

their functional capacity. In the past 10

years, the understanding of what causes

headaches and migraines has significantly

changed. The research now shows that

the sensitisation of the brain stem in

your neck is what causes this pain; and

the specially trained physiotherapists at

Muscle People are well versed in how to

treat it.

Krissy Winter, a patient of Muscle

People, had this to say about her

experience: “My migraines were

debilitating and they’d often come without

warning. Sometimes once a week, but

generally about once a month. I’d moved

up from Dunedin where I’d managed them

with my Osteopath, yoga and Pilates. In

Christchurch I was so reluctant to let

anyone near my neck. I read the article

and I must admit I wasn’t convinced and I

went to the first appointment with a page

of all the concerns I had. The first time I

met Laurie I remember walking out and

feeling more in control. After about four

treatments with Laurie and perfecting the

technique she taught me I truly began to

reap the benefits. Now I’m fantastic. If I

feel a migraine coming on I now have the

control to manage it myself, even stopping

them from taking over, without needing

someone to drive me in to the osteopath

or the hospital for an injection to relieve

the pain. With the technique Laurie

taught me I’m armed and dangerous!”

Laurie, Clare and Naomi were trained

in Australia in the award winning and

ground breaking Watson Approach to

dealing with headaches and migraines.

This proven method examines and treats

the movements of the first three segments

of the neck, which when sensitised cause

headaches and migraines.

“In our clinics we see people from

as far away as Invercargill who come

to us specially to seek treatment” says

Laurie Moore, Director of Muscle People

Physiotherapy. She says “The symposium

in Australia we went to just recently

reaffirmed the effectiveness of what we

do, and honed our skills even more.”

Generally patients will come to our

clinic four or five times in the first few

weeks of treatment. We show them some

very simple exercises to do at home. After

the first few weeks, treatment sessions are

guided by how the patient is feeling.

“Often patients come to us at the end

of a long journey having tried quite a few

other treatments, and we are able to help

them reduce or remove their pain.” Laurie

says.

“If I feel a migraine

coming on I now have

the control to manage

it myself.”

FOCUS ON HEALTH

Time Honoured

Remedy

1 in 2 People

Deficient in B12

According to a country Doctor “D.C. Jarvis”

from Vermont in the USA cider vinegar and

honey (CV & H) can be an important part of

a long healthy life. Dr. Jarvis noted Vermonters

who regularly consumed cider vinegar and

honey had excellent health with many putting

in a vigorous day’s work on the farm even

when well into their eighties.

Dr. Jarvis found the effects of cider vinegar

and honey on arthritis can be remarkable

with many patients reporting almost total

relief after taking a course of the cider vinegar

and honey. Dr. Jarvis surmised that the acid

and potassium in cider vinegar counteracted

calcium deposits and helped the body control

calcium use.

As well as a general tonic Dr. Jarvis found

regular administration of cider vinegar and

honey at the onset of complaints such

as the common cold, sinusitis,

asthmatic attacks, hay fever,

and childhood diseases

such as chicken pox

and measles, was

accompanied by

an improvement

in the condition

with symptoms

either disappearing,

or the conditions were

extremely mild and soon

over.

Apple cider vinegar contains all the goodness

of the apple in a form that is readily accepted

by the body. Scientists have found over 90

different substances in ACV, among them 20

important trace elements, minerals, essential

enzymes, a number of different acids including

malic acid, amino acids and roughage in the

form of potash and pectin. A scientific study

at the Shizuka University in Japan has proven

ACV to have potent antioxidant benefits (It can

destroy free radicals, which are a major factor

in ageing.) and also the ACV can break down

cholesterol formations in the blood vessels.

ACV and H is a powerful tonic that also

promotes digestion, assimilation of nutrients

and elimination of waste, and helps neutralize

any toxic substances that enter the body.

It is important to note not all cider vinegar

is made in the traditional way and results are

likely to prove disappointing with these other

vinegars.

Emerging research has shown as

many as 50% of older adults and as

many as 25% of younger adults are

deficient in vitamin B12. Scientists at

Rush University Medical Center found

those most deficient in vitamin B12 to

have the smallest brain mass and the

lowest scores on tests measuring shortterm

memory, concentration and brain

performance. Another study showed

that older people with higher levels of

B12 in their blood have bigger, healthier

brains and score higher on cognitive

tests than those with lower levels. Yet

another recent landmark study showed

that B12 supplementation slows the

accelerated rate of brain shrinkage and

declining cognitive function. B12 is essential

for energy production, cell health, regulation of

mood and sleep cycles, nerve health and repair,

and prevention of homocysteine a serious

cardiovascular risk factor that is known to

cause damage and plaque in the blood vessels.

It can also increase the chances of a stroke.

Harvard researchers found a 34% decrease risk

of vision loss in a study of participants aged

40+ who supplemented with B12. Another

study linked a higher risk of hearing loss in

subjects in their 60’s who were low in B12.

The reason so many people lack B12 appears

to be our body’s ability to absorb it declining

with age as the digestive system becomes less

efficient. Anti-reflux medication and other

drugs further reduce B12 absorption. The good

news is B12 in the form of Methylcobalamin

sublingual tablets that are dissolved in the

mouth and thru bypassing the digestive tract

have been shown to effectively raise B12 levels

in the body.
