Our presentation on Natural Ways to Curb Your Risk of Alzheimer’s

We had a great time talking with the residents at Affinity, the topic of the day was curbing your risk of Alzheimer’s.  There are several easy to implement things we can do without a prescription, such as the anti-Alzheimer’s shopping list:

  • Omega-3:  Fatty fish (wild-caught salmon, tuna, sardines), seeds and nuts (especially walnuts and flax seeds), and healthy oils such as olive oil, coconut oil, and fish oil
  • Polyphenols:  Berries of all kinds (cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
  • Curcumin:  The primary compound in turmeric (used in curry)
  • Folate:  Leafy greens (spinach, kale, greens), cruciferous veggies (broccoli, bok choy, Brussel sprouts), beans and legumes, pumpkin, squash, and beets
  • Resveratrol:  Dark chocolate (70% cacao or higher), red grapes, red wine (in moderation)
  • Caffeine:  Coffee or tea (no sodas!)
