Here are 3 fundamental points to avoid Alzheimer's disease

The vast majority (75%) of Alzheimer’s disease cases are caused by the interaction of genetic background with several factors related to lifestyle, in particular diet, body weight, and physical and mental activity. Lifestyle changes can therefore have extraordinary repercussions in preventing or at least delaying the onset of this disease.

The best protective foods

Convergent studies suggest that people who consume plants rich in polyphenols (resveratrol, green tea, pomegranate, blueberries) as well as fatty fish rich in omega -3 (salmon, sardines) have a lower risk of being affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Find your ideal weight and keep it

Obesity is the main trigger of type 2 diabetes and people with diabetes have an increased risk (50%) of having Alzheimer’s disease. Maintaining a normal body weight is therefore a simple way to improve our chances of aging without suffering cognitive impairment.

Physical and mental activity to be maintained throughout throughout one’s life

Regular practice of cognitive activities strengthens neuronal connections, particularly in memory areas, and could therefore delay the age at which the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease appear. For example: read, learn a foreign language, do crosswords, board games, anything that pushes you to “phosphorize”.

Regular physical activity is also an important preventive factor : it is estimated that exercise alone could reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 30%.

The adoption of a healthy lifestyle remains the main approach to favor in order to live as long as possible in good health and to limit the risk of occurrence of this neurodegenerative disease.
