REVEALED! The TRUE Cause of Alzheimer’s
If you’re worried about Alzheimer’s, you’re probably paying close attention to your mind.
Things like memory slips… and trouble learning new information are classic signs of the disease.
But now we know there’s another part of your body you should be focused on, too.
Because new research has found that a MAJOR underlying causeof Alzheimer’s isn’tsomething that happens in your brain at all.
And this discovery could help you STOP this devastating disease before it begins.
The true culprit behind Alzheimer’s might not be what’s in your brain… but what’s in your mouth.
That’s right, it turns out that a type of bacteria involved in gum disease could play a major role in Alzheimer’s disease.
In a recent study published in the journal Science Advances, researchers looked at the brains of people with Alzheimer’s and found that they contained a type of bacteria called Porphyromonas gingivalis, or just Pg for short – a bacteria involved in gum disease.
They also found toxic enzymes produced by Pg, called gingipains.
A mouse experiment gave a bit more insight into the connection.
When the mouse gums were infected with Pg, their brains had higher amounts of the bacteria. And they also had more beta-amyloid plaque, the toxic proteins that have come to be the hallmark of the disease.
But when the mice were given a drug designed to bind to the gingipains (those toxic enzymes produced by Pg), two things happened:
- It reduced the amount of the Pg bacteria
- And it blocked the produce of the beta-amyloid.
So what does all this mean?
It shows us that the presence of gumdisease bacteria plays a key role in the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
This study falls right in line with other studies showing that people with gum disease have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Some scientists are saying that the research is still too early to definitively say that preventing gum disease can prevent Alzheimer’s… but with the evidence connecting the two, it sure seems like a great place to start.
Plus, gum disease has been linked to other major diseases, ranging from heart disease and rheumatoid arthritisto cancer. And then there arethe direct consequences of gum disease – plaque, inflammation, and ultimately tooth loss.
But if you think I’m going to recommend brushing and flossing… hang on to your hats.
Gingivitis is a bacteria issue, and the best way to eliminate bacteria in your mouth is by making changes to your diet.
Cut out sugar because it feeds bacteria, and avoid processed foods, which promote the growth of bacteria, and hydrogenated oils, which are highly inflammatory.
Be sure to eat whole, organic food and get plenty of sunlight.
For an added boost, try xylitol chewing gum, which prevents bacteria from building up.
