Simple rules of supply.
If you notice that you quickly forget recently received information, the person’s name, you find it hard to focus on detailed tasks, especially if they are associated with the digits you been looking for the right thing just somewhere put, you become harder to read words on a page, distinguish colors, you may not immediately remember the name of the things that you use every day at home, you quickly upset or even depressed – keep in mind that these may be the first manifestation of Alzheimer’s disease.
Alzheimer’s is a disease of the brain, which gradually develops after age 50 and is characterized by progressive intellectual impairment, memory loss and personality change.
In Alzheimer’s disease in brain tissue formed many “plaques” – deposits of amyloid protein that lead to the degeneration of neurons (nerve cells) and their processes.
I think that the main importance in the development of disease is heredity. One of the reasons is also called alcohol abuse, which has a toxic effect on the brain and leads to impaired digestion and absorption of essential nutrients, in particular vitamins B1, B5, B12, C, A, E, PP, magnesium, calcium and vitamin D and lecithin.
Unfortunately, medications for Alzheimer’s disease today do not exist, but correction of the diet matters, emphasizes nutritionist Oksana Skitalinskaia.
It turned out that the people in the diet which is dominated by berries, herbs and fish (omega-3 fatty acids) have a significantly lower risk of disorders of the brain.
Mental health to a ripe old age is another reason that every day is essential for your brain foods, which can reduce the chance to live out their lives with Alzheimer’s.
“Diet of the mind” (10 food groups):
Green leafy vegetables (spinach, lettuce): 6 servings per week
– Vegetables: daily
– Nuts: 5 servings a week
– Berries: 2 or more servings a week
– Beans: 3 servings a week
– Whole grains: 3 servings a day
Fish: 1-2 servings a week
– Poultry (chicken / Turkey): 2 times a week
– Olive oil: 1 tablespoon a day.
– Black grapes, or raisins 1 serving per day (grapes) or 1 tablespoon a day (raisins)
Serving size: approximately tennis ball (or Cup).
– Red meat: less than 4 servings per week
– Butter: less than 1 teaspoon per day
– Cheese: at least 2 servings a week (1 portion – 4 dice)
– TRANS fats: margarine, “light” oil with “vegetable fats”
– Cakes, in butter and margarine (puff pastry, waffles, etc.)
– Sugar: sweets, sugary drinks
– Fried foods
The benefits of “diet for the mind”
People who followed these recommendations reduced the risk of Alzheimer’s by 54%. That’s a lot. But more importantly, people who began to follow these recommendations, already in adulthood, reduced the disease risk by approximately 35%.
Aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease
Risk factors include environmental pollution, especially adversely affected by aluminum, which, when applied to the brain, is deposited in nerve cells.
Sources of aluminum:
Aluminum cookware (to cook vegetables worsens their digestion, when cooking eggs phosphates are formed, deteriorating the absorption of calcium, while frying meat increases the amount of nitrates).
Tap water, purified flocculants.
E-supplements: 311, 312, 541, 554, 555, 556, 559.
Water pipe (with a lining of cathodic corrosion protection with use of aluminium).
Cigarette filters contain aluminum.
To test baking powder, vanilla powder, bleached flour: the aluminium is added in the production.
