Knowledge is Power: Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Prevention Tips

1. Eat More Fruits and Vegetables (especially 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. Via



2. Switch to Mediterranean
 You may know that a Mediterranean diet, rich in fruits, vegetables, olive oil, legumes, whole grains and fish, offers heart-healthy benefits. But a Mediterranean diet may also benefit your brain. Studies show that people who closely follow a Mediterranean diet seem less likely to develop cognitive decline when compared with people who don't follow the diet.Via



3. Sip Red Wine & Green Tea
  Green tea and red wine contain natural chemicals called ‘polyphenols’, also called antioxidants, such as EGCG and resveratrol, which are known to protect against a number of diseases, including certain cancers, stroke, and heart disease. New research from the University of Leeds, published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry, shows that the natural chemicals found in these two beverages may also help treat Alzheimer’s disease.
