These 9 Tricks STOP Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s has become an absolute epidemic – and we all know someone who has been affected. 

Your chances of developing Alzheimer’s in your senior years have never been greater. 

And even middle-aged folks are showing signs of dementia, thanks to the crappy processed foods we eat and the brain-destroying toxins that are all around us. 

Yes, Alzheimer’s is becoming more typical – but you don’t need to be typical. 

There are nine simple ways to slash your chances of ever getting Alzheimer’s.

Let me show you. 

One in ten people age 65 and older (10%) has Alzheimer's. Let’s keep you out of this group.

Dr. Scott’s Guide to Preventing Alzheimer’s

  1. Enjoy Your Coffee– Coffee contains a chemical called eicosanoyl-5-hydroxytryptamide (EHT) that, in studies done on rats, has been shown to protect against Alzheimer’s disease. Other studies support the brain-health benefits of coffee.
  1. Tea Too!– Green tea is a rich source of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), which has been shown to reduce beta-amyloid plaques and tau tangles (the causes of Alzheimer’s disease). Tea has also been shown to drop blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which is good for the brain. 
  1. Get a Pet– A pet encourages you to be social and get exercise as well as providing companionship.
  1. Get Colorful– When you eat, that is. Higher vegetable consumption is associated with slower rate of cognitive decline. That’s based on 3,718 people aged 65 years and older who participated in the Chicago Health and Aging Project. Choose foods of many different colors.  
  1. Nap– Researchers at the Laboratory of Human Chronobiology at Weill Cornell Medical College in White Plains, New York, studied how 22 men and women reacted to varying napping regimens, finding that naps of all lengths enhanced cognitive performance during the day.
  1. Exercise Hard – But Not Too Long– In a study on Alzheimer’s, participants walked for 30 minutes before dinner. Those who walked in six-minute vigorous intervals experienced better post-meal blood sugar levels than study participants who did the once daily, moderate session. Blood sugar is closely related to brain health. 
  1. Get Crafty –Researchers at the Mayo Clinic studied crafting activities—such as woodworking, pottery, ceramics, and quilting – and found they reduced the likelihood of Alzheimer’s by 55%.
  1. Get Spicy– Cinnamon, turmeric, rosemary, and lavender all help with brain health. 
  1. Volunteer– Staying active and having a sense of purpose help people to stave off the signs of Alzheimer’s.
