Simple Steps To Protect Your Brain

Nutrition, Exercise The Best Defense Against Alzheimer’s Disease

As we age, cognitive decline is common, there is much that we can do to boost our brainpower, while promoting overall health.

Neuroplasticity means the brain can grow, rewire, adapt and strengthen when properly stimulated. Recent studies suggest physical and mental exercise, a healthy diet and other common lifestyle changes can improve brain function, delay dementia symptoms and even lower the risk for Alzheimer’s disease.

“Even though we cannot predict exactly who will get Alzheimer’s disease and when, we do know that people who practice Alzheimer’s prevention strategies improve their quality of life and reap immediate benefits in memory and health,” says Dr. Gary Small, director of UCLA’s Longevity Center and co-author of The Alzheimer’s Prevention Program: Keep Your Brain Healthy for the Rest of Your Life.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

Here are some smart ways to boost your brain, while building total body health:

Lose Weight and Lower Your Blood Pressure

Carrying around a lot of belly fat is often a sign of increased cell inflammation throughout the body, including the brain. In one study, men who had the most abdominal fat in their 40s were the most likely to develop dementia later on. Just another reason to improve your diet and lace up your walking shoes.

A sharp, healthy brain needs a good supply of oxygen and glucose to operate. Better blood flow gets it there. Increased blood flow helps brain cells communicate better, says Small, who believes that as little as 15 to 20 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day can lower Alzheimer’s risk.

Have it checked every year. If it’s high — that is, above 120/80 mmHg — work with your doctor to get it down. High systolic blood pressure limits blood and nutrients to the brain, making it more likely that you will lose gray matter in critical areas as you age.

Consume Salmon

Studies have shown that eating foods like salmon, tuna and other oily fish — along with flaxseed and walnuts — that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids is a good bet for all-around brain and heart health. Omega-3 fatty acids contain DHA and EPA, which are highly concentrated in the brain and crucial for optimal brain function, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

prevent Alzheimer's disease

These fatty acids are important to consume, because our neurons use them to build brain cell walls and maintain good brain health. In studies, people with low blood levels of omega-3s had lower brain volume than people with higher levels, suggesting their brains were aging more rapidly. One study at Tufts University found that people who ate oily fish three times a week reduced their risk of Alzheimer’s disease by nearly 40 percent.

Eat Leafy Green Vegetables

The ideal side dish to your salmon entrée is a leafy green vegetable like spinach, kale, Swiss chard or collards. All have been linked to slowing cognitive decline, thanks to their high concentration of vitamin K. According to a new study from Rush University Medical Center, people who ate one to two servings of leafy greens each day had the cognitive ability of a person 11 years younger than those who consumed none.

Eat Blueberries

And eat a bucketful. Inside each berry is a special antioxidant called anthocyanin, which can cross the blood-brain barrier and protect brain cells from oxidation damage. A Harvard Nurses’ Health Study of 16,000 women older than 70 found that women who consumed two or more half-cup servings of blueberries or strawberries per week remained mentally sharper than those who didn’t eat berries.

treat Alzheimer's disease

Brain Stimulation

Word-recall tasks and other brain challenges like Sudoku and crossword puzzles might decrease your risk of dementia, according to a recent study at the University of California, Berkeley. The scientists believe brain challenges prevent the buildup of beta-amyloid in the brain, the protein that accumulates in the brain of Alzheimer patients.

Olive Oil

A study from Spain showed that men who ate about four tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil a day showed better language comprehension, attention and abstract thinking than those on a low-fat diet. Its antioxidants may reduce brain inflammation.

Social Interaction

In an eight-year study reported in The Lancet Neurology, researchers gave cognitive-performance tests to 89 elderly people and then compared the results of testing with autopsy findings some years later. They found that the larger a person’s social network, the smaller an effect the neurological tangles and plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease had on cognitive ability. Researchers say the protective effects of having many friends were more evident for the parts of the brain where we store general knowledge, language and factual information.

Pomegranate Seeds Treat Neurodegenerative Disease

Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment Delivers Powerful Antioxidant

Granalix BioTechnologies has developed a new treatment for those with Alzheimer’s disease. The company announced the availability of GranaGard™ a food supplement based on pomegranate oil that helps prevent neurodegeneration.

Alzheimer's disease prevention tips

GranaGard, is a submicron Pomegranate Seed Oil (PSO) emulsion, and is an innovative formulation of one of the strongest natural antioxidants, Punicic acid (an Omega 5 lipid), which constitutes 80 percent of PSO. The novel patented formulation was shown to delay disease onset and prevent neuronal death in a model of genetic prion disease (a form of Mad Cow Disease)[i] and to reduce disease burden in a mouse model of Multiple Sclerosis[ii], while showing no toxicity after long term administration. In both diseases, GranaGard administration results in reduction of brain lipid oxidation, which is caused by increased levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS).

Prof. Ruth Gabizon, Founder and acting CEO of Granalix BioTechnologies, explained, “Reactive Oxygen species (ROS) are chemically active molecules that can lead to significant damage to cells, and in particular in the central nervous system. It is therefore widely accepted that this chemical agent contributes to chronic inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. And while anti-oxidants that can counteract ROS are ubiquitously present in a healthy human diet, their activity is limited by chemical degradation, poor bioavailability, reduced distribution to the CNS, and sub-pharmacological doses.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

To overcome these limitations, we generated GranaGard, a novel neuroprotective formulation with high bioavailability. In addition to its protective role in subjects at risk of neurodegenerative conditions, GranaGard is expected to be effective for general neurological wellbeing for the larger public. We are also currently testing GranaGard for its effect in various non-neurological diseases and as a protective agent during intense exercise.”

PSO submicron droplets have several advantages. First, the nano formulation may avoid the first passage of the oil through the liver, thereby enhancing the availability of the droplets to other organs such as the CNS. GranaGard is then able to enter the brain and protect membrane lipids from ROS attacks that occur as a result of both every-day efforts and pathological events. In vivo, Punicic Acid is metabolized into Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA), a compound known for its neuroprotective and other beneficial effects. When mice are given the GranaGard formulation, CLA was found to accumulate in the brain and can directly exert its neuroprotective effect.

Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease, Parkinson’s or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are late onset brain disorders that together affect millions of people around the globe. Alzheimer’s disease is already the 5th leading cause of death for people aged 65 or older in the US. It’s also the fastest-growing cause of death globally. Currently, there are no preventive or curative treatments for these conditions.

“GranaGard can currently be purchased at the Company’s website. We are seeking additional partners for worldwide distribution,” added Prof. Gabizon. GranaGard™ is produced by Supherb and can be purchased at the Company’s website at http://www.granalix.com.

Granalix BioTechnologies focuses on developing science-based novel formulations of natural antioxidants that can be used for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative conditions. The Company was established in 2014 by Prof. Ruth Gabizon from the Department of Neurology at Hadassah Medical Center, Jerusalem, Israel and Prof. Shlomo Magdassi at the Casali Center for Applied Chemistry, the Institute of Chemistry and the Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Prevent, Treat Alzheimer’s Disease With Smart Nutrition

Nutrition Delivers Effective Compounds To Brain

Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and other forms of brain disease are the fastest-growing causes of death in the world. Most forms of brain disease are preventable, transmissible and treatable with targeted nutrition. That’s the theme for a new book that shines light on the global epidemic of brain disease.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

According to Gary Chandler, author of Beat Brain Disease With Smart Food, Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Millions more will contract the disease this year, while just as many will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed.

Death rates from heart disease and cancer are dropping in most countries due to advances in nutrition, medicine and disease management. Meanwhile, neurodegenerative disease is spreading exponentially. In the U.S., deaths attributed to Alzheimer’s disease increased 71 percent from 2000 to 2013, while those attributed to heart disease decreased 14 percent. Experts suggest that the prevalence of brain disease will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner.

“Unfortunately, it appears that Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s are just as infectious as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease,” said Chandler. “Many industry practices are based upon a faulty risk assessment.”

The most common forms of neurodegenerative disease include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease–the most aggressive and infectious of them all. According to Nobel Prize Laureate Stanley Prusiner, they are all part of the same disease spectrum—prion disease. It’s also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.”

  • Women are contracting neurodegenerative disease at twice the rate of men;
  • Caregivers (spouses) are six times more likely to contract brain disease (most caregivers are women); and
  • People in Finland, Iceland, Sweden and the United States have the highest prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease.

Although there are many causes and pathways contributing to prion disease, many pathways are being mismanaged around the globe. Not only are homes and hospitals exposed to the prion pathogen, so are entire sewage treatment systems. Wastewater treatment plants are prion incubators. Sewage sludge and wastewater pumped out spread the disease.

infectious waste and food contamination

Sewage sludge, biosolids, and reclaimed wastewater are recycling prions from victims into our food and water supplies. We’re dumping killer proteins on crops, parks, golf courses, gardens, ski areas, school grounds and beyond. Wind, rain and irrigation spread these contaminants and many more throughout our communities and watersheds. Avoiding prions in your food and water is a critical step in wellness. Unfortunately, it’s easier said than done.

Some foods increase your risk of contracting brain disease, while some foods help prevent it. Other foods offer the best hope for effective treatment. Most drugs offer no help at all. Drug companies are making billions selling placebos. Targeted nutrition is our best hope for prevention and treatment.

Brain Disease The Fastest Growing Cause Of Death

More Than 50 Million People Have Alzheimer’s Disease

Neurodegenerative disease is now a global epidemic among many mammals, including humans. Advocates claim that mismanagement and misinformation around the world are fanning the flames and putting millions of people in harm’s way.

Anywhere from 50-100 million people around the world are dying of brain disease. Millions more will contract it this year, while just as many will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Adding to the madness is the fact that physicians are withholding millions of other diagnoses.

Alzheimer's disease epidemic

Death rates from heart disease, cancer and other leading causes of death are steady, if not dropping, in most countries due to advances in nutrition, medicine and disease management. Unfortunately, neurodegenerative disease is the one glaring exception. It’s spreading exponentially. If we had accurate mortality statistics, we would likely find that brain disease is already the leading cause of death around the world. Some countries are at a higher risk than others.

“This will be the most important documentary ever produced about brain disease,” said Gary Chandler, president of Crossbow Communications. “Thanks to mismanagement and the widespread contamination of our food and water, brain disease has more to do with neurotoxins than it does with normal aging and genetics.”

The most common forms of neurodegenerative disease include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease–the most aggressive and infectious of them all. According to Nobel Prize Laureate Stanley Prusiner, they are all part of the same disease spectrum—prion disease. It’s also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is “transmissible.”

Prions and Alzheimer's disease

Prions are unstoppable. The pathogen spreads through the bodily fluids and cell tissue of its victims. The blood, saliva, mucus, milk, urine and feces of victims are infectious. Once unleashed on the environment, prions remain infectious. In fact, they migrate, mutate and multiply.

Not only are homes and hospitals exposed to the prion pathogen, so are entire sewage treatment systems and their by-products. Wastewater treatment plants are prion incubators. The sewage sludge and wastewater released are spreading disease far and wide.

Alzheimer's disease prevention and treatment

Sewage treatment plants can’t detect or stop prions. Dumping sewage sludge (biosolids) from billions of people on land and at sea spreads prions far and wide. It also spreads heavy metals, radioactive waste, carcinogens, pharmaceuticals and more. The risk assessments for biosolids and wastewater reuse don’t mention prions because there is no answer.

“Although there are many factors contributing to the global epidemic, millions of these deaths could have been prevented,” said Chandler. “In addition to dietary risks, it appears that Alzheimer’s disease is just as infectious as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. There’s no evidence to the contrary.”

  • Women are contracting neurodegenerative disease at twice the rate of men;
  • Caregivers are six times more likely to contract brain disease;
  • People from Finland, Iceland, Sweden and the United States have the highest death rates from Alzheimer’s; and
  • Smart nutrition is the best strategy to avoid brain disease and the only way to effectively treat its symptoms.

biosolids land application sewage sludge

There are many more questions than answers, but we know that neurotoxins, head trauma and genetics can all trigger neurodegenerative disease. Unfortunately, that’s where much of the knowledge gets fuzzy. Diagnoses, for example, are barely more than a shot in the dark.

According to Chandler, truth and targeted nutrition are the best defense against environmental contamination and brain disease. His company is producing a documentary that will help promote food safety, wellness and reform. It’s called “Food For Thought.” It offers the most comprehensive guidance available about prevention, aversion and treatment, including vital advice for caregivers and family members.

Food Linked To Risk Of Acquiring Neurodegenerative Disease

Food Linked To Higher Risk Of Alzheimer’s Disease

People who eat more nuts, fish, poultry and certain fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of acquiring Alzheimer’s disease, while those who eat more red meats, organ meats, butter and high-fat dairy products have a higher risk.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

The conclusions come from a study of 2,148 adults aged over 65 published in the journal Archives of Neurology. All lived in New York and did not have dementia. They were followed for approximately four years. Their diet was studied and their dementia risk assessed every 1.5 years. Researchers found that 253 people developed Alzheimer’s disease during the study.

One dietary pattern apparently provided the best protection against the disease. Those who had a higher intake of the following foods had a lower incidence of Alzheimer’s disease:

  • salad dressing (oils)
  • nuts,
  • fish,
  • tomatoes,
  • poultry,
  • fruits,
  • dark and green leafy vegetables, such as cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli.

“Epidemiological evidence linking diet, one of the most important modifiable environmental factors, and risk of Alzheimer’s disease is rapidly increasing. However, current literature regarding the impact of individual nutrients or food items on Alzheimer’s disease risk is inconsistent, partly because humans eat meals with complex combinations of nutrients or food items that are likely to be synergistic,” said the researchers.

“For example, vitamin B12 and folate are homocysteine-related vitamins that may have an impact on Alzheimer’s disease via their ability of reducing circulating homocysteine levels, vitamin E might prevent Alzheimer’s disease via its strong antioxidant effect and fatty acids may be related to dementia and cognitive function through atherosclerosis, thrombosis or inflammation via an effect on brain development and membrane functioning or via accumulation of beta-amyloid (plaque).”

Documentary Will Shine Light On Neurodegenerative Disease

Sponsors, Investors Can Build Bottom Line, Better World

The Alzheimers disease epidemic has become an environmental nightmare. A new documentary hopes to turn the tide.

Help us expose the misinformation and mismanagement that is fueling the global epidemic that is killing 50 million people around the world right now. Several factors are fueling the surge in neurodegenerative disease. The truth is our only hope. Prevention is the only defense.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

Several forms of neurodegenerative disease are contagious. That’s why caregivers are 600% more likely to contract Alzheimer’s/Parkinson’s or the feared Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Doctors can’t distinguish between these diseases and they can’t confirm a diagnosis without an autopsy. Compounding the problem is the fact that doctors are withholding “diagnoses” from millions of people, which protects insurance companies, but not families.

That’s right, Alzheimer’s has become an industrial disease. Industry practices are contributing to it and industrial practices are trying to cover it up. The good news is that the truth can help you navigate this toxic minefield and the lies that are covering it up. Our documentary also will empower you with information that can help you refine your lifestyle to help avoid neurodegenerative disease.

Documentary Explains Causes, Prevention, Treatment For Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer’s disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s killing more than 50 million people now. The count is likely much higher. Millions more will be diagnosed this year, while millions more will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, most of these deaths could have been prevented. The discriminatory nature of the disease now reflects the characteristics of an environmental disease where some people are more exposed and more vulnerable than others. For example, did you know:

Alzheimer's disease infectious disease

  • Women are contracting neurodegenerative disease at twice the rate of men?
  • Caregivers are six times (600 percent) more likely to contract neurodegenerative disease than people who are not caregivers?
  • People from some regions of the world are at a higher risk of the disease than others. Finland, Iceland, Sweden and the United States have the highest death rates from Alzheimer’s disease in the world?
  • Food is the best strategy to avoid neurodegenerative disease and treat it?

The most common forms of neurodegenerative disease include Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. According to Nobel Prize Laureate, Stanley Prusiner, they’re all part of the same disease spectrum—prion disease. It’s also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathy (TSE). The operative word is transmissible.

There are many more questions than answers regarding neurodegenerative disease. Most diagnoses are just a process of elimination and an educated guess. If the patient has a memory disorder, it’s Alzheimer’s disease. If it’s a movement disorder, the diagnosis is Parkinson’s disease. If the patient exhibits both symptoms, flip a coin. If the person is near death and incapacitated, it might be Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). Confirmation requires an autopsy—which rarely happens.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

Most doctors can’t distinguish between advanced forms of Alzheimer’s disease and the highly contagious version known as CJD. Experts suggest that Alzheimer’s diagnoses are wrong at least 25 percent of the time, which means that at least 25 percent of Alzheimer’s cases are highly contagious cases of CJD. Millions of caregivers around the world are taking care of people with CJD, without warning. Given the imprecise diagnostics, all cases of neurodegenerative disease should be considered infectious.

Adding to the madness is the fact that millions of other diagnoses are being withheld altogether. Misdiagnoses and suppressed diagnoses represent a nightmare for caregivers and the public at large. It’s just the tip of an iceberg regarding misinformation and mismanagement that is fueling this devastating global epidemic. As we will discuss, there is no evidence to suggest that Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease are not infectious.

Prion disease also kills wildlife, sea mammals and livestock. It’s known as mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease in deer. There is no species barrier. It has become an environmental nightmare.

Death rates from heart disease, cancer and other leading causes of death are dropping thanks to advances in nutrition, medicine and disease management. Unfortunately, Alzheimer’s disease is the one glaring exception. It’s spreading exponentially. If we had accurate mortality statistics, we would likely find that neurodegenerative disease is already the leading cause of death around the world. It will get worse. It could be the greatest health threat that the world has ever seen.

There are many factors contributing to the global epidemic. Age and genetics are not the dominant factors for most people any longer. Navigating our toxic world is getting more difficult by the day. Some foods and water sources are contributing to our demise. Others are the best medicines on earth.

For example, there are three big reasons that organic foods can protect you from neurodegenerative disease. We discuss several foods and factors in our upcoming documentary that can help you and your family avert Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. We also will explain which foods help treat this spectrum disease.

Alzheimer’s Disease Discussed In Upcoming Documentary

As you probably know, Alzheimer’s disease is no laughing matter. It’s killing more than 50 million people around the world right now. It’s probably impacting your family or someone that you know.

As death rates from heart disease, cancer and other leading causes of death are dropping around the world today, Alzheimer’s disease is the one glaring exception. Death rates from Alzheimer’s disease are skyrocketing around the world. Finland, Iceland and the United States have the highest rates in the world. Regional hot spots also exist, including the state of Washington in the U.S.

Neurological diseases are the fastest-growing cause of death in the world today. If we had accurate mortality statistics, we would likely find that Alzheimer’s disease is already the number one killer around the world.

Alzheimer’s disease is the only major cause of death with no known prevention or cure. Its progression is unstoppable.

Dementia is a term used to describe a wide range of symptoms associated with the most common forms of neurological disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. They’re all part of the same disease spectrum—known as prion disease. The discussion is less confusing if we refer to them all as prion disease.

Prions are a deadly form of protein associated with several forms of neurological disease. Stanley Prusiner earned the Nobel Prize in physiology in 1996 for his pioneering work on prions. Unfortunately, his earth-shattering science has been ignored and a global health epidemic has ensued.

Prions and Alzheimer's disease

Red Chiles Can Spark Neuron Regeneration

Possible Treatment For Neurodegenerative Disease

Brazilian researchers from D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and Federal University of Bahia have demonstrated in laboratory that apigenin, a substance found in parsley, thyme, chamomile and red pepper, improves neuron formation and strengthens the connections between brain cells.

Alzheimer's disease treatment

Previous experiments with animals had already shown that substances from the same chemical group as the apigenin, known as flavonoids, positively affect memory and learning. Many studies highlight the potential of flavonoids to preserve and enhance brain function. While the effectiveness of flavonoids for brain health is not an entirely new concept, this research is the first to show the positive effects of apigenin directly on human cells and the first to unraveling its mechanism.

The scientists observed that just by applying apigenin to human stem cells in a dish they become neurons after 25 days — an effect they would not see without the substance. Moreover, the neurons that were formed made stronger and sophisticated connections among themselves after being treated with this natural compound.

“Strong connections between neurons are crucial for good brain function, memory consolidation and learning,” says neuroscientist from IDOR and UFRJ Stevens Rehen, leader author of the paper published in Advances in Regenerative Biology.

The research team conducted by Rehen demonstrated that apigenin works by binding to estrogen receptors, which affect the development, maturation, function, and plasticity of the nervous system. This group of hormones is known to delay the onset of psychiatric and neurodegenerative disorders such as schizophrenia, depression, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. However, the use of estrogen-based therapies is limited by the increased risk of estrogen-dependent tumors and cardiovascular problems.

Researchers believe apigenin can be used as an alternative approach on future treatments for neurodegenerative diseases as well as in neuronal differentiation strategies in laboratory.

“We show a new path for new studies with this substance,” points out Rehen. “Moreover, flavonoids are present at high amounts in some foods and we can speculate that a diet rich in flavonoids may influence the formation of neurons and the way they communicate within the brain.
