Blueberries may help prevent Alzheimer's, new research suggests

Lead researcher Dr Robert Krikorian said: "There was improvement in cognitive performance and brain function in those who had the blueberry powder compared with those who took the placebo. "The blueberry group demonstrated improved memory and improved access to words and concepts. " The researchers also conducted MRI scans which showed increased brain activity in those who ingested the blueberry powder. Dr Krikorian said that blueberries' beneficial effects could be due to flavonoids called anthocyanins, which have been shown to improve animals' cognition. A second study included 94 people aged 62 to 80 who did not have measurable cognitive decline but reported experiencing memory loss.

"The results were not as robust as with the first study," said Dr Krikorian. Link between vitamin D, dementia risk confirmed. Vitamin D deficiency is associated with a substantially increased risk of dementia and Alzheimer's disease in older people, according to the most robust study of its kind ever conducted.

Link between vitamin D, dementia risk confirmed

An international team, led by Dr David Llewellyn at the University of Exeter Medical School, found that study participants who were severely Vitamin D deficient were more than twice as likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer's disease. The team studied elderly Americans who took part in the Cardiovascular Health Study. Low vitamin D among elderly associated with decline in cognition, dementia. Vitamin D insufficiency among the elderly is highly correlated with accelerated cognitive decline and impaired performance, particularly in domains such as memory loss that are associated with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, researchers with the UC Davis Alzheimer's Disease Center and Rutgers University have found.

Astaxanthin Provides Broad Spectrum Protection. Researchers in Japan have long looked to the sea for sources of new medications.

Astaxanthin Provides Broad Spectrum Protection

A big focus has been on astaxanthin found in microalgae.1,2 Astaxanthin functions as a natural sunscreen for marine plants.3 Because astaxanthin is so effective at absorbing solar radiation, investigators first proposed it would make an effective topical sunscreen.1-4 But as researchers looked closer, they discovered that astaxanthin shields other areas against destructive free radicals.4,5 Almost every cell in the body, including the eyes, brain, heart, and kidney, can benefit from astaxanthin.1,6,7 Recent laboratory studies show that astaxanthin can even increase life span!

8,9 The discovery of a new way to boost astaxanthin absorption by 12-fold means more of this broad-spectrum nutrient is available to your entire body. Astaxanthin is a red pigment molecule that is a member of the carotenoid family found in certain marine algae. Astaxanthin: Potent Skin Protection from the Inside Out Boosting Immune Function.

It sounds almost too good to be true, but two recent studies have suggested that a pretty commonsense diet, appropriately called MIND , can help prevent or delay age-related cognitive decline and reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Done by the same researchers at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, both studies appeared in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia and were funded by the National Institute on Aging.

MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Diet Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. As that awkward name indicates, the diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean and DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets. Both diets have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and have also been linked to protective effects against age-related cognitive decline.

The researchers said they picked elements from the diets “based on the most compelling findings in the diet-dementia field.” The Journal of Prevention of Alzheimer's Disease.
