Researchers have shown that clearance of the substance amyloid-beta that forms plaques is impaired in individuals with Alzheimer’s. A group of 12 individuals with early Alzheimer’s were compared to 12 cognitively normal individuals of the

Meditation - breath in 7 sec, hold 7 sec, release slowly 3. tease your memory 4. physical exercise blood flow to brain generates new brain cells. 5. see other foods, esp DHA supplement
Recent anecdotal reports claim coconut oil produces remarkable recoveries from Alzheimer's disease, but is there research to support this? Now, a new study published in the Journal of Alzheiner's Disease shows that a mechanism for coconut oil's brain rescuing properties does in fact exist.
Molecular Trigger for Alzheimer's Disease Identified: Researchers at Cambridge’s Department of Chemistry have pinpointed a catalytic trigger for the onset of Alzheimer’s disease – when the fundamental structure of a protein changes to cause a chain reaction that leads to the death of neurons in the brain. For the first time, they have been able to map in detail the pathway that generates “aberrant” forms of proteins which are at the root of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s.
Oxford researchers have proven in a new clinical study what nutritionists and other research have been indicating for years - that supplementation with certain B vitamins can slow and possibly even reverse the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
