Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia in the UK, effecting approximately 850,000 people. It is a progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalised degeneration of the brain affecting multiple brain functions including memory. The exact cause of Alzheimer’s disease is unknown, yet there are a number of risk factors for the condition, namely: increasing age, a family history of the disease, previous severe head injuries and lifestyle factors such as cardiovascular disease.
Despite their attempts, the pharmaceutical industry has failed to deal a hammer blow against the progression of Alzheimer’s. Despite early successes in the clearance of amyloid plaques, the prospective Alzheimer’s drug, aducanumab, was found to hit a snag in that it allows leakage of fluid into the brain, a condition that could itself trigger cognitive impairment.
Despite the fact Alzheimer’s clinical trials have doubled since 2013 the mainstream is still struggling to come up with an effective treatment that can actually slow down the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Millions of people are wracked with fear that there is nothing that can be done to prevent this disease from destroying their precious memories.
Fortunately, there have been some breakthroughs on the alternative health front, like astaxanthin – the pigment that gives salmon their pink colour – which has shown promise in reducing the risk of developing dementia. Regular tea consumption has also been found to help lower your risk of developing age-related cognitive impairment by as much as 63 per cent. Other natural alternatives include the traditional Indian berry, ashwagandha, which was shown to help eliminate plaques as well as reduce oxidative damage in the brain.
When it comes to protecting your precious memories the Daily Health is here to bring the latest alternative health breakthroughs to show you that there are safe and effective ways to combat cognitive impairment.
