Alzheimer’s Cure Hiding in the Dairy Section?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Alzheimer’s is one of the scariest realties of aging.

And if you are diagnosed, you could spend your golden years in a state of endless confusion and isolation, as your most precious memories slip away.

Nobody wants to live that way… and you don’t have to.

Because new research shows there’s a common food that could help you win the fight against Alzheimer’s and control the way your brain ages.

And you’re going to love adding more of this tasty treat to your diet.

This everyday food is tasty yogurt, and it could be the key to your brain running on all cylinders well into your final years.

There’s a strong connection between gut health and brain health. This means things like taking probiotics (“good” gut bugs) and eating a healthy diet are crucial for a healthy brain.

That’s where yogurt comes in…

A recent study followed 60 Alzheimer’s patients for three months. Half of the participants had a daily regimen of yogurt with active bacteria cultures, and the other half had milk. At the end of the experiment, the yogurt group scored better on cognitive tests than those who had milk.

Even better, the yogurt group also had significantly lower levels of inflammation markers and oxidative stress, which can speed up the aging process.

This means adding a daily serving of yogurt to your diet can help keep your gut healthy and your mind sharp

Can’t do dairy?

Don’t worry, you can get all the good gut bugs you need from other fermented foods, like kimchi and sauerkraut, or you can pick up a probiotic supplement at your local pharmacy.

Live well,

Natalie Moore
