For A Healthy Brain Put Less Carbs in Your Diet Plans

Alzheimer’s disease, far and away the most common form of dementia, now affects some 5.4 million Americans, representing the third leading cause of death in our country. Even more troubling is the fact that this number is predicted to double in just the next 15 years. Moreover, women are disproportionately at risk, representing 65% of Alzheimer’s cases. In fact, a woman’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease now exceeds her risk of developing breast cancer.

There is no cure for this disease and experts expect this number to double in the next 15 years. So why is this happening?

Some people look to genetics, but if that was the ONLY link, we would not see the explosion of increased cases. As we search for answers we can look into things we can modify, like lifestyle. Mayo Clinic has been doing just that. They released results from their study to the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The Study explored the role of diet as it relates to Alzheimer’s.

They studied 2,000 elderly individuals for approximately four years. The results were astonishing. The risk of Dementia was increased by 90% in those who consumed higher levels of carbohydrates. Those who calories came from fat were at reduced risk by around 44%. Higher protein consumption was associated with 21% reduced risk.

The message is clear. Increasing healthful fats and decreasing carbohydrates in your daily diet plans can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s.
