8 Ways To prevent Alzheimer’s
- Eat more fruit and 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
2.Eat fatty fish.In the Framingham study, individuals with the top quartile levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in fatty fish like salmon, mackerel, and tuna, measured at baseline had lower rates of Alzheimer’s over nine years of follow-up. These fish are all rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
3.Eat like a Greek.Two studies that used dietary questionnaires to assess and quantify adherence to the diet in different populations found that patients who were most adherent to the Mediterranean style diet had a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s, compared with those who did not follow this diet.
4.Have a glass of red wine.Drink a glass of red wine or purple grape juice with your evening meal. Components in grape skins protect brain cells from the toxic effect of oxidative stress and beta amyloid.
5.Control your blood pressure.Hypertension appears to be associated with an increased risk of both vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
6.Eat 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 benefit.
7.Make friends.Findings indicate that an active social life and strong network of friends may help prevent Alzheimer’s in later life.
8. Control inflammation.Once thought to be a by-product of Alzheimer’s it has been found to be one of the causes of this and many other chronic illnesses.
