Today in this blog topic by CRB Tech Reviews we shall discuss about the ways to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. A disease that is affecting mostly the aged and causing much harm.
What you need to do is keep your brain healthy, sharp, and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s with the below mentioned scientifically-proven strategies.
It’s never too late to take up a smart lifestyle change that will protect your health in the coming years. Boost your brainpower and keep your mind fit for a lifetime with research-backed Alzheimer’s prevention tips from the book, The Anti-Alzheimer’s Prescription.
1. Eat more fruits and veggies
A population-based unit study of 1,836 older Japanese-Americans found that eating of fruit and vegetable juices is associated with reduced incidence of Alzheimer’s by a difference of over seven to nine years.
2. Eat berries
Berries have high levels of biologically active components, which include a class of compounds called anthocyanosides, which fights memory loss associated with free radicals and beta-amyloid plaques in the brain. Hence eat berries each day for maximum benefit.
3. Increase the intake of omega-3 fatty acids
In the Framingham study, people with top quartile levels of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) found in fish like salmon, mackerel, and tuna, measured at baseline had lower risks of Alzheimer’s over nine years of differences. These fish are very rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
4. Take folic acid supplements
If you don’t wanna take a supplement, eat foods high in folate. High levels of homocysteine may be associated with poor cognitive function. Some findings pointed that reducing homocysteine with folic acid might increase cognitive function.
5. Sip smart
Sip 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.
6. Go Mediterranean style diet
Two studies that used dietary questions to validate and quantify adherence to the diet in different populations found that patients who were adherent to the Mediterranean style diet had a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s, compared with others.
7. Control your BP
Hypertension appears to be associated with an increased risk of both vascular dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
8. Have a strong social support
Researches indicate that an active social life and strong network of friends might help prevent Alzheimer’s in later life.
So with this we conclude the discussion here.
