As we mentioned in previous articles Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder named after German physician Alois Alzheimer. Alzheimer’s destroys brain cells, causing problems with memory, thinking and behavior severe enough to affect language communication, memory, lifelong hobbies or social life. Alzheimer’s gets worse over time, and it is fatal. In this article, we will discuss what to avoid so you can cut the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
1. Limit intake of processed sugar
Study shows that intake of high amounts of processed sugar over a long period causes worse learning and memory retention and in the brain and increasing amyloid plaque deposits. Sugar beverage causes the increasing blood levels of beta-amyloid, a sticky protein substance that builds up in the brain resulting in Alzheimer’s disease.
2. Limit intake of salt
Sodium is crucial for maintaining the health of every cell in the human system. Excessive salt consumption contributes to the development of high blood pressure heart disease and stroke causing depletion of oxygen in the bloodstream resulting in plague and tangle building up in certain regions of the brain.
3. Limit the use of aluminum cook ware
Overheating aluminum cookware will cause a chemical reaction and aluminum leaking into your food resulting in heavy mental accumulated in certain regions in your brain increasing the risk of Alzheimer’ s disease.
4. Replace farm fish with wild fish
Farm fish grows in crown areas, contain high amounts of mercury and lead that are not only harmful to your body but also causes the accumulation of such chemicals in your brain resulting in a increased the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
5. Use purifier in your tab water
In order to avoid the intake of heavy metal through water drinking, the best solution is to purify your tab water before drinking or drinking only boiled water.
6. Avoid foods that are stripped of vital nutrition
Food that contains caffeine, artificial additive and trans fat will strip away the vital nutritions resulting in nutritional deficiency causing many health problems including malnutrition of brain cells.
7. Limit intake of alcohol
Alcohol damage the cerebral cortex and hippocampus region of the brain results in loss of memory and communication difficulty.
8. Stop smoking
Smoking depletes the oxygen level in our bloodstream and also causes the hardening, thickening of arteries and promoting calcium sticking to the arterial wall resulting in less nutrition to nourish our brain cells as well as causing rupture of the brain vessels.
