DRUG-FREE Breakthrough SLASHES Your Alzheimer’s Risk by 50%
If you’re diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, your doctor will give you meds to take.
But no drug can cure Alzheimer’s.
And no drug can prevent it, either.
But you don’t need to take a drug to prevent the disease.
A new study has shown that there’s a drug-free way to reduce your risk by nearly 50 percent.
You know that foods like kale, spinach, and beans are good for you.
But did you know that eating them can dramatically lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease?
That’s because they contain plant chemicals called flavonoids that give fruits and vegetables their various colors.
These compounds have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and previous studies show that eating more of them is associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
More recently, researchers took a closer look at a subcategory of flavonoids called flavanols.
Animal studies link flavanols to a lower risk of developing dementia. Now, a study published in the journal Neurology finds that those protective effects extend to humans as well.
For the study, researchers included nearly 1000 senior citizens averaging 80 years old who did not have dementia. They all answered food frequency questionnaires and underwent neurological evaluations every year for six years.
After considering other factors, the researchers determined that those who had the highest flavanol intake had a 48 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
Breaking it down even further, the two particular flavanols with the most protection were kaempferol myricetin.
These flavanols are found in foods like kale, beans, tea, spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, wine, and olive oil.
Does this mean that you should go on an all-kale diet?
But it does show that by incorporating a variety of healthy foods into your diet can do what no drug can: Protect your brain and lower your risk of dementia.
