ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE… HOW CAN WE PREVENT IT TODAY?

Yes the thought of Alzheimer’s Disease might seem like something you don’t need to worry about, especially if you’re young… but there is no harm in prevention is there? Here are a few tips to keep in mind… Actually sat next to a researcher in this area at dinner last night and it got me thinking, so wanted to make us all aware of the things we can do early on.

  1. Have Strong Social Support: Findings indicate that an active social life and strong network of friends may help prevent Alzheimer’s in later life.
  2. Eat More Fruits & Veggies: A population-based cohort study of 1,836 older Japanese-Americans found that consumption of fruit and vegetable juices was associated with decreased incidence of Alzheimer’s over seven to nine years of follow-up.
  3. Reach for Berries: Berries contain high levels of biologically active components, including a class of compounds called anthocyanosides, which fight memory impairment associated with free radicals and beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. Eat berries each day for maximum benefits.
  4. Daily Folic Acid Intake: Eat foods high in folate. High levels of homocysteine may be associated with poor cognitive function. Some findings indicate that reducing homocysteine with folic acid may increase cognitive function.
  5. Control Your Blood Pressure: Hypertension appears to be associated with an increased risk of both vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

ALICIA IS NOT CLUELESS

We all remember Alicia Silverstone from Clueless, such a classic movie… but nowadays she has dicthed the the valley girl accent, for a strong voice that helps grow the vegan community. She is all about ”The Kind Life” and I agree with her. We should be kind to our bodies, ourselfs, and others – whether they are humans or animals.

WHY DOES YOUR BODY NEED MAGNESIUM?

When combined with calcium, it works a as natural tranquilizer.

What to eat to get this nutrient? Nuts, seeds (sunflower), green vegetables, kelp (seaweed), etc.
