This Diet REVERSES Alzheimer’s (YUM!)
There are a lot of reasons that Alzheimer’s disease is tragic.
The fact that it’s both progressive and incurable is right up there at the top of the list.
For people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s, the best you can hope for is to slow it down as much as possible… giving you as many clear-thinking years as possible.
Fortunately, researchers have found a delicious diet that does just that.
And it can even delay the progression of the disease by as much as three years.
To know how to reverse Alzheimer’s—or slow its progression—you have to get to the root of what’s causing it.
For years, science has been blaming toxic proteins in your brain called beta amyloid plaques. These proteins cause your brain cells to become dysfunctional and dead.
Scientists have been looking for a way to prevent these plaques from gunking up your brain—with the ultimate goal of slowing disease progression and helping folks maintain their quality of life for as long as possible.
And they’ve found their answer… in the Mediterranean diet.
In a study published in the journal Neurology, researchers followed 70 people from 30-60 years old who did not have Alzheimer’s. They tracked their adherence to a diet high in fruit, vegetables, and lean protein, and low in sugar and processed foods.
Then they conducted two PET scans to get a look at what was happening in their brains.
It turns out that the people who most closely followed the Mediterranean diet had less beta amyloid deposits in their brain compared to those who followed an unhealthy, Western-style diet.
Those following the less healthy diet also had less brain activity.
Both of these factors are early signs of dementia.
Based on these results, the researchers suggested that following a more Mediterranean-style diet can delay the onset of Alzheimer’s by three years or more.
That’s a lot of time considering the fact that Alzheimer’s is progressive and incurable.
But staving off Alzheimer’s is just one in a long line of reasons to eat a diet that consists of more fresh, whole foods (including lots of wild-caught salmon) and less processed, sugar-laden junk food.
This type of eating can prevent heart disease and strokes, protect against type 2 diabetes, and even help you live longer.
And besides, it’s just plain delicious.
