Forbidden Food BEATS BACK Alzheimer’s
By now, we know for a fact that diet and lifestyle play a big role in whether or not you’ll develop Alzheimer’s.
But sometimes what your doc says is BAD for you is the VERY THING that your brain needs the most.
That’s the case with this particular brain-protecting nutrient.
Studies show that it can help prevent Alzheimer’s by combatting two of the most devastating memory-robbing processes that occur in the brain.
The only problem?
You’ve been told to avoid the ONE FOOD that can supply your brain with exactly what it needs.
Red meat has been villainized for decades. But meat contains loads of beneficial nutrients—and one key one can play a major role in preventing Alzheimer’s.
It’s called choline.
It’s also in other foods like eggs, shellfish, and spinach.
Throughout their lifetime, scientists included high doses of choline in the diets of female mice bred to develop Alzheimer’s.
Compared to those mice receiving normal amounts of choline, those getting the high doses showed improvements in their spatial memory.
Research in male mice found similar beneficial effects of getting higher amounts of choline throughout their lives.
In this particular study, choline reduced the activation of specialized cells microglia. These cells can be harmful when overactivated because it can lead to inflammation in the brain and the death of brain cells.
Interestingly, overactive microglia are associated with numerous types of neurodegenerative diseases besides Alzheimer’s, including Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
The fact that something as simple as choline could reduce these diseased cells is an exciting finding that points to a promising new area of research for treating numerous brain disorders.
The study also shows that choline can prevent the production of amyloid-beta plaque in the brain. These toxic, tangled proteins are the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
These findings fall right in line with what science has already revealed about choline—which is that it is a key nutrient that is necessary for proper brain function.
It plays a key role in the production of acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for memory and mood.
Since Alzheimer’s disease is incurable, the time to boost your choline levels—and your brain protection—is NOW.
As I mentioned earlier, one way to do that is by eating more choline-rich foods, which include red meat, shellfish, spinach, and eggs.
You can also take a choline supplement.
