Individuals who are concerned about staying healthy as they get older should consider taking an herbal anti-aging supplement. Another thing that they may want to do is make sure they are eating the right foods including fruits, vegetables and fish that contain omega 3 fatty acids. That was the conclusion of recent research published in the journal Neurology, which found that the right vitamins and nutrients may help protect against Alzhemier's disease.
Elderly study participants whose blood contained high levels of marine fatty acids and vitamin B,C,D and E performed better on cognitive ability exams and had less brain shrinkage associated with Alzheimer's than those who consumed mostly trans fats and "junk food."
"This approach clearly shows the biological and neurological activity that's associated with actual nutrient levels, both good and bad," said Maret Traber, a principal investigator with the Linus Pauling Institute and co-author on the study.
It is estimated that more than 5 million people have Alzheimer's disease in the U.S. These findings suggest that focusing more on one's diet may result in a decreased risk of developing this condition.
