Alzheimer's disease is commonly known as an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks (Alzheimer's Society).
Recent estimates suggest that Alzheimer's is the third leading cause of death for older people in the United States, trailing behind heart disease and cancer.
Billions of dollars are spent each year in search of a cure, however the mainstream system seems to be missing the target completely as they have neglected the crucial piece of the puzzle – the root cause.
This devastating disease is due to cell death and a massive degeneration of nerve cells and connections in the brain. In patients with Alzheimer's, autopsy results show tangles and plaque between and within the brain cells. Additionally, immense markers of inflammation, as well as high traces of aluminum, are consistently found.
What can be done to prevent or even reverse Alzheimer's Disease?
It only makes sense to do less of the harmful things that contribute to brain degeneration and do more of the things that strengthen and protect the body's most precious organ. In order to protect ourselves and our loves ones against Alzheimer's, we must follow a health promoting diet and lifestyle.
EPA and DHA to protect the brain!
Consuming fish oils is a ritual that even our great grandmothers practised. It is no secret that omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants can be beneficial to people with a wide range of health problems, as well as protective for healthy people, and we now know how instrumental Omega 3s are for patients with a predisposition for Alzheimer's.
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid found in fish oil supplements. It is a building block of the brain involved with numerous cellular pathways. Clinical trials suggest that people with higher level of DHA are less likely to develop degenerative brain disorders.
Omega-3s Can Fight Inflammation
Chronic inflammation contributes to almost every chronic Western disease.
Omega-3s help reduce the production of molecules and substances linked to inflammation, such as inflammatory eicosanoids and cytokines. They protect cells by providing nutrients, adding integrity to the cell wall, and increasing overall circulation and blood/arterial flow.
When choosing a supplement, it is crucial to choose a brand that guarantees high potency. Dr. Dave's Best Wild Red Fish Oil contains 440 mg of EPA and 220 mg of DHA.
The difference between the fish oil that our great grandmother's had theirs actually tasted like fish oil. You can now enjoy all the benefits PLUS a great orange burst taste!!
