Medical researchers are finding ways of slowing and preventing Alzheimers.
Fortunately, Alzheimers prevention may be easier we thought!
Here's simple, low cost ways to slow and prevent alzheimers disease! How? Medical scientists have found targeted nutritional interventions that work.
Here's what they are discovering:
There are studies showing which nutritional intervention can help people with Alzheimers best.
Scientists, are showing what to use to “stimulate synapse formation” and effectively REDUCE Alzheimer Disease “neuropathology.”
They are determining which nutrition can best “Counteract specific aspects of the neurodegenerative and pathological processes in the brain.”

“Folic acid and polyunsaturated fatty acids improve cognitive function and prevent depression, dementia, and Alzheimer's disease”

Vitamin B Slows Brain Shrinkage in Alzheimer’s Patients
An Oxford University study showed that that taking vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid in medicinal quantities slowed brain shrinkage by 30% to 50% during the two years of the study.
Participants were taking supplements of Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and folic acid.
(Published in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, by Celeste de Jager, a neuro-psychologist at Oxford)
low cost supplements cover a lot of bases, so they are worth taking for
Alzheimers prevention, especially for early signs of Alzheimers!
It is known that high homocysteine is associated with cognitive decline in the elderly -- both for Alzheimer's disease and for vascular dementia
This research showed that vitamin treatment can help with memory, language and other mental functions.
Folic acid and vitamin B slowed the development of MCI, the mild cognitive impairment that leads to Alzheimer’s. This is remarkable considering it is a simple Alzheimers cure, when medications only marginally help Alzheimers symptoms.
Why Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
(ReviewOmega-3 fatty acids and neurological injury. Omega-3 fatty acids and dementia. Palmblad J, et all. J Neurochem. 2006]
Scientists report that because Essential Fatty Acids, EFA’s “suppress inflammation, augment healing, and are of benefit in the PREVENTION and MANAGEMENT of conditions such as depression, coronary heart disease, stroke and Alzheimers Disease."
(Can Essential Fatty Acids Reduce the Burden of Disease(s)? Lipids Health Dis. 2008 Mar 18;7:9.)
Build a Better Brain with the Master Antioxidant
Antioxidants protect, including vitamins E, C, but most important is the protective MASTER ANTIOXIDANT called glutathione, GSH.
Why is GSH important for Alzheimers treatment and prevention?
(Glutathione in Health and Disease. Dr. Patricia Kongshavn, MSC, Ph.D. January 2005)
(Alzheimer’s Disease by Dr. Jimmy Gutman, MD, FACEP, from the book, “GSH, Glutathione, Your Key to Health”)

Tumeric and Alzheimers: Eat Curry For Preventing Alzheimers Disease?
Why does India have a very low rate of Alzheimers disease?
Researchers have traced the fact that very few people in India get Alzheimers to the anti inflammatory action of Turmeric -- the spice that gives curry its yellow color.
Scientists say that the active ingredient in Turmeric -- curcumin -- can be used:
“as a useful adjunct in the TREATMENT of neurodegenerative illnesses characterized by inflammation, such as Alheimers Disease, because of the involvement of curcumin in restoring cellular homeostasis and rebalancing redox equilibrium.”
(Immun Ageing. 2008 Aug 13;5:7.Racchi M,et all. )
Best to eat curries for preventing Alzheimers, and Alzheimers disease stages!
Best brain protective Alzheimers Diet? What to eat for preventing Alzheimers?
Why? Researchers at the The Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, New York, USA warn of a connection between high calorie intake, metabolic syndrome and Alzheimers Disease.
They show that lifestyle, especially nutrition, can be crucial in preventing Alzheimers and stopping early signs of Alzheimers.
They explain that:
"Unhealthy lifestyle choices lead to an increasing incidence of obesity, dyslipidemia and hypertension--components of the metabolic syndrome. These disorders can also be linked to Alzheimers Disease."
(Pasinetti GM, Eberstein JA. J Neurochem. 2008 Aug; 106 (4): 1503-14. Epub 2008 May 3)
Are there differences in the diet of people who get Alzheimers and those who don’t?
Japanese researchers compared the diets of a group of people with Alzheimers disease or with vascular dementia, to the diet of those of the same age who were free of the disease.
What were these differences?
The women especially, ate LOWER amounts of fish and green vegetables.
People who had Alzheimers had EXCESSIVE INTAKE of Omega 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and relative DEFICIENCIES of multiple vitamins including antioxidants, vitamin C and carotene, and the vitamin B's as well as folic acid Alzheimers test.
Why is nutrition so Key?
The researchers explain that these dietary imbalances would cause chronic inflammation, and oxidative stress, thereby increasing the chances of Alzheimers disease and Alzheimers dementia. (vascular dementia)
(Otsuka M, Yamaguchi K, Ueki A, Ann N Y Acad Sci. 2002 Nov; 977: 155-61)
Research for preventing Alzheimers generally agrees on the following:
Take VITAMIN B and the OMEGA’s
ANTIOXIDANTS C, E and GSH
Particularly vitamin C, E as well as the Master Antioxidant glutathione GSH have been shown to prevent damage from “oxidative stress.”
Re-build glutathione GSH in the BRAIN by using neuro-protective brain health supplements.

We hope you have found our article on how to prevent Alzheimers and stop early signs of Alzheimers to be helpful.
Whether you suspect early symptoms of Alzheimer's, or simply "don't want to go there," you can stay healthy, and certainly improve all alzheimer disease stages.
Our recommendations can make caring for Alzheimer's easier, and the patient more involved and self sufficient.
We look forward to hearing from you and your experiences with Alzheimers treatment, or Alzheimer disease stages and your experiences of caring for Alzheimer's patients!
