2-Minute Hack RESCUES You from Alzheimer’s!
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Let’s face it: none of us have time to lose.
If you’re like me, you’d rather make the most of each day, spending time with your loved ones and enjoying every moment.
But if you spend most of your life worrying about your health, the time flies faster than peanuts at a baseball game!
And all without any benefit!
That’s why this 2-minute hack is so important. Because when you add it to your daily routine, you can RESCUE your brain from Alzheimer’s… and still leave the rest of your day free.
I’m talking about brushing your teeth. AND flossing!
Now, unless you live in the wilderness, you probably brush your teeth. BUT, what about flossing?
Flossing is something most people do only occasionally. To remove a lodged piece of meat, or a popcorn kernel that’s stuck.
But flossing is actually something you should be doing (at least) weekly, if not daily!
Because there is a powerful connection between the bacteria in your mouth and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers writing in the journal Experimental Biology found that certain bacteria (called Porphyromonas gingivalis) in gum disease, can release toxins connected with Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis and even aspiration pneumonia (where you inhale something and it leads to pneumonia).
How does this happen?
Well, your mouth normally contains bacteria. But that bacteria shouldn’t live between your gums. And these bacteria have a way of locking onto your teeth by creating a biofilm.
You’ve felt this biofilm – it’s that slimy coating that builds up on your teeth after you’ve eaten a meal.
Usually brushing your teeth disrupts the biofilm. But that biofilm can also crawl between your gums and teeth. And once the bacteria work their way down there, it’s called gingivitis.
This is where Porphyromonas gingivalis thrives and multiplies, spilling its toxins into your bloodstream.
You know you have gingivitis if your gums bleed when you floss or go to the dentist for a cleaning.
Previous researchers have found Porphyromonas gingivalis in brain samples from Alzheimer’s patients.
What’s more, studies using mice found that Porphyromonas gingivalis can move from mouth to brain – something you definitely don’t want.
This is where flossing comes in.
You should start by brushing your teeth at least three times a day (if not more). Just don’t be overly aggressive with your toothbrush because that can also hurt your gums.
Then use floss to scrape the biofilm that your brush cannot remove from between your teeth.
A good flossing and brushing ritual can go a long way to preventing Alzheimer’s disease.
