Research: The UK government gave £20 million this year for research to tackle the dementia epidemic, yet, virtually none of it has been spent on prevention:
Since 2006 the UK research councils have spent £140 million on research
But only 0.1% (£156,000) has been spent on prevention
Over $40billion has been spent globally on developing drugs, all of which have failed
How can we support this condition nutritionally?
Multi-Vitamin & Mineral is a broad spectrum of vitamins & minerals. Alzheimer’s sufferers are often found to be deficient in many vitamins and minerals
Multi Anti-Oxidant with Co-Q10: Antioxidants can help restore acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is deficient in Alzheimer’s sufferers. Acetylcholine increases attention span and concentration. Co- Q10 can reduce neuron damage and improve mental function
Vitamin B Complex: B vitamins have been shown to improve mental function in a number of ways. B3 in particular helps reduce the DNA damage to neurons associated with Alzheimer's disease
Vitamin D at optimum levels has been shown in research to reduce the incidence and progression of Alzheimer's disease
Magnesium: A vital mineral for Alzheimer's to help improve memory and reduce symptoms of the disease. Levels of magnesium within the brain are invariably lower in Alzheimer’s sufferers
Zinc & Copper are both known to help Alzheimer’s disease. Research has shown that 80% of sufferers showed improvement in memory, understanding and communication with optimum zinc levels. Low copper levels were found to increase the progression of Alzheimer’s. Copper helps stabilise the harmful substances that are known to damage neurons.
Essential Fatty Acid Complex: Optimum intake of EFA’s can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by 60%. EFA’s facilitated improved performance on the Alzheimer's disease cognitive assessment scale. EFA’s help stabilise brain wave patterns and are known to help alleviate inflammation
Probiotic E505: Recent research has shown clear improvement in mental function of Alzheimer’s sufferers with the use of Probiotics. Why? We know that Alzheimer’s is an inflammatory condition and we also know that changes in gut bacteria enhance inflammation. Disruption in gut bacteria could therefore logically hasten brain degeneration in Alzheimer’s sufferers
