The accumulation of free radicals in the brain leads to massive nerve damage and the death of neurons in certain parts of the brain which contributes to the development of the well-known symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease including memory loss, verbal challenges and unpredictable behavior.
With potentially 200,000 people under the age of 65 having early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease, awareness and prevention is key, and taking steps to keep a healthy mind and body is a priority here at CardioMender. While many key environmental, lifestyle and genetic factors account for the onset of Alzheimer’s, we suggest an appropriate diet rich in pigmented fruits and vegetables and possibly the addition of certain nutritional supplements to help offset or even prevent the development of this degenerative disease*.
