High-Carb Diet Linked To Alzheimer's Disease

High-carb Diet Is Linked To Alzheimer’s Disease

Older people who load up their plates with carbohydrates have nearly four times the risk of developing mild cognitive impairment, a study out Tuesday finds. Sugars also played a role in the development of MCI, often a precursor to Alzheimer’s disease, according to the report in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. Eating more proteins and […]

Change Your Diet To Prevent Alzheimer's Disease

Vitamin C May Help Protect You Against Dementia

In a new study, researchers have discovered that the serum-concentration of the antioxidants vitamin C and beta-carotene are significantly lower in patients with mild dementia than in control persons. It might thus be possible to influence the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease by a person’s diet or dietary antioxidants. 74 Alzheimer’s Disease patients and 158 healthy […]

What is Alzheimer's and what can be done?

State-Of-The-Art Imaging Technology For Alzheimer’s Disease Biomarker Development

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most common brain disorders, with an estimated 35 million people affected worldwide. In the last decade, research has advanced our understanding of how AD affects the brain. However, diagnosis continues to rely primarily on neuropsychological tests which can only detect the disease after clinical symptoms begin. In a […]


Alzheimer’s Disease Linked to Diabetes

Researchers from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), collaborating with scientists from Northwestern University in Illinois, have provided direct experimental evidence that diabetes is linked to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. The study, published online this week in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, used an experimental model that shows potential as an […]

Nutricia has patent on drink to help Alzheimer's

Nutrient Drink Might Boost Memory in Early Alzheimer’s Patients

A daily drink combining several nutrients appears to help people with early Alzheimer’s disease improve their memory, a new study suggests. As Alzheimer’s progresses, patients lose their memory as synapses (connections between brain cells) deteriorate, according to background information included in the study. The new drink, called Souvenaid, may actually stimulate the growth of new […]


Drinking Coffee May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease

A new study published on June 5, 2012 in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease suggests drinking coffee with caffeine may help delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease or prevent the disease. Researchers from the University of South Florida (NSF) and the University of Miami conducted the case control study and found high blood caffeine levels […]


Tai Chi Found To Increase Brain Size and Benefit Cognition

Scientists from the University of South Florida and Fudan University in Shanghai found increases in brain volume and improvements on tests of memory and thinking in Chinese seniors who practiced Tai Chi three times a week, reports an article published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. Findings were based on an 8-month randomized controlled trial […]


Drink Coffee to Reduce Alzheimer’s Risk, Scientists Recommend

After a study suggests drinking coffee regularly is linked to a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, one researcher’s advice is quite clear: Drink coffee. “Moderate daily consumption of caffeinated coffee appears to be the best dietary option for long-term protection against Alzheimer’s memory loss,” Dr. Gary Arendash said. “Coffee is inexpensive, readily available, easily gets […]


Pulse Pressure Elevation Could Presage Cerebrovascular Disease In Alzheimer’s Patients

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego and Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System have shown that elevated pulse pressure may increase the risk of cerebrovascular disease (CVD) in older adults with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Their study has been published in the early online edition of Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease in advance of the […]

New Hope For Treating Alzheimer's Disease

New Hope For Treating Alzheimer’s Disease

New research in humans reveals that the so-called FKBP52 protein may prevent the Tau protein from turning pathogenic. This may prove significant for the development of new Alzheimer’s drugs and for detecting the disease before the onset of clinical symptoms. A study published online March 21 in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, for the first […]
