9 Healthy Habits Reduce Dementia Risk

By Sunday, 24 December 2017 04:21 PM Current | Bio | Archive

Recently, the Memory and Aging Center at the University of California-San Francisco published an analysis of the most important factors for preventing Alzheimer’s disease.

Researchers reviewed 323 studies about development of Alzheimer’s, and came up with nine distinct lifestyle guidelines that can reduce a person’s chance of developing the most common form of dementia in the United States today.

1. Keep your weight under control, with particular attention to maintaining a moderate waistline.

2. Keep your brain active; don’t be a couch potato.

3. Keep your mood under control; don’t let stress get the best of you.

4. Keep oxygen flowing to the brain with good blood circulation.

5. To achieve healthy circulation, check your homocysteine level and be aware of any atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) in your vascular system. A high homocysteine level can be treated with vitamin B complex, B12, and B6. For data on atherosclerosis, go to nanobiotechpharma.com.

6. Rein in high blood pressure; keep your blood pressure under 120/80.

7. A weak body can lead to a weak brain, so keep your body active with plenty of physical exercise.

8. Don’t smoke.

9. Avoid high blood sugar.
