Alzheimer's and Controlling Your Diet

Physicians and organization suggest that eating a Mediterranean type diets which is high in healthy fats, fruits and vegetables may help prolong the onset of Alzheimer's disease. By eating any type of a balanced diet may prolong a healthy life and prevent early onset of Alzheimer's disease.

Alzheimer's and Red Wine

For some a glass of red wine at the dinner table is natural and expected. But a recent study shows evidence suggesting that something in red wine, grapes, or apple skins might offer protection against Alzheimer's disease.

A naturally occurring compound in red wine called polyphenols, blocks the formation of proteins that build the toxic plaques thought to destroy brain cells, and further, they reduce the toxicity of existing plaques, thus reducing cognitive deterioration or the onset of Alzheimer's. As we know alcohol consumption can cause many health problems, but drinking it in moderation or a single glass of red a day may help your overall health.

High Fat Diets

We've been hearing for years about all the bad things that occur when we stay on a high-fat diet. A high-fat diet might lead not just to heart disease but also to Alzheimer's, a disease. A high-fat diet during early and mid-adulthood may be associated with an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Americans might be able to change that future in part by steering clear of artery-clogging foods. A diet containing more Omega-3s and less saturated fat could prevent the development of Alzheimer's, at the very least among people genetically predisposed to the disease. These can be found in a lot of popular fish, such as salmon and tuna.

Good Cholesterol

High levels of high-density lipoprotein, or HDL, the so-called “good” cholesterol, appear to protect against Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new report. Good cholesterol foods to indulge in are soybean products, fish oil, and leafy greens. Another way to increase HDL levels is to lose weight.

Supplements

Folic acid, vitamin B12, vitamin D, magnesium, and fish oil are believed to preserve and improve brain health. Studies of vitamin E, gingko biloba, coenzyme Q10, and turmeric have yielded less conclusive results, but may also be beneficial in the prevention or delay of Alzheimer’s and symptoms.

Lifestyle and Nutrition

It's never too late to start a healthy lifestyle. No matter what, there is going to be a benefit if you maintain a healthier lifestyle and incorporate a good nutrition regime into your life. A higher body mass index and weight do correlate with a higher risk of Alzheimer's disease. Elderly people and those with Alzheimer's in their family should keep active and do all they can to maintain good health. There is still a long way to go before scientists will truly understand Alzheimer's and find ways to prevent it.
