[WARNING] This Condition DOUBLES Your Alzheimer’s Risk

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

When you think about your past, there are lots of wonderful things to remember, like your wedding… the first time you held your grandchild… and so much more.

At the same time, there are probably plenty of things you remember you’d like to change.

But for better or worse, it’s YOUR memory… and you’ll do whatever you can to save it from Alzheimer’s disease.

What if I told you, however, that one of those things from your past could actually DOUBLE your risk of Alzheimer’s?

And while you can’t change the past, you still have control over your future.

I’m going to tell you exactly what you could be facing and how to keep your brain healthy.

New research from the University of Pennsylvania Alzheimer’s & Dementia Center has found that even a single head injury could lead to dementia later in life.

The study conductors gathered seniors and followed up with them over 25 years, with office visits and phone calls.

And they found something shocking.

Those that had suffered a head injury were more likely to get dementia by 1.25 times.

The researchers also found that the more head injuries, the more likely the participants were to be diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

They also found that those who had suffered two or more head injuries DOUBLED their risk of dementia.

Finally, they calculated that almost 10 percent of all dementia cases could be attributed to at least one prior head injury.

Another study found that head injuries can lead to dementia and Alzheimer’s because the impact creates an uptick in beta-amyloid production, one of the main causes of these diseases.

How do you know if you’re at risk?

If you played sports, especially football, soccer, hockey, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, or softball, you could be at risk.

If you participated in boxing or martial arts, were in the military, or were in a car accident, you could be at risk as well.

Make sure you monitor signs of memory loss carefully, and talk with your doctor about the possibilities of developing Alzheimer’s or dementia based on your health history.

In the meantime, you don’t have to be a sitting duck. You can take the initiative and support your brain.

Dr. Scott’s Keys to a Healthy Brain

  • Eat a diet high in vegetables and good proteins. This means making sure you are eating a vegetable at every meal and focus on wild or free-range meats when you can.
  • Avoid processed foods and foods with too much sugar and vegetable oils. These increase inflammation in the body–which is deadly to your brain. I like olive and avocado oils the most, but you can also use butter.
  • Keep your blood sugar under control. Blood sugar and brain health are closely tied. If you need help controlling blood sugar, look to supplements that contain chromium and berberine.
  • Supplements: The best brain nutrients are Alpha-lipoic acid, CoQ10, curcumin, and astaxanthin. B vitamins are also your brain’s best friends; I usually suggest a good B complex that contains all the B vitamins.

P.S. If you’re concerned about Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, there’s another sign you should be on the lookout for. Find out what it is right here.
