Drinking Coffee May Delay Alzheimer’s Disease. Drinking three cups of coffee per day may help turn the tide against Alzheimer's disease among older adults who are already showing signs of memory problems, a new study shows. High Blood Caffeine Levels in MCI Linked to Lack of Progression to Dementia.
Moderate Drinking May Help Prevent Alzheimer's, Other Dementia. Drinking moderate amounts of alcohol, especially wine, may lower the risk of dementia, according to a review of previous research. Moderate drinkers were 23 percent less likely to develop dementia, Alzheimer's disease and other forms of "cognitive impairment," a phrase used to describe a decline in thinking skills. Moderate drinking is generally defined as a maximum of two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women. Moderate alcohol consumption and cognitive risk.
Green Tea May Protect Against Alzheimer's. Regularly drinking green tea might protect the brain against Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, scientists have revealed. The ancient Chinese remedy might also play a vital role in protecting the body against cancer, a study. In vitro protective effects of colon-available extract of Camellia sinensis (tea) against hydrogen peroxide and beta-amyloid (Aβ((1-42))) induced cytotoxicity in differentiated PC12 cells.
Fish Oil No Help Once Alzheimer's Starts. The fish oil supplement DHA doesn't slow the relentless progression of Alzheimer's disease -- even if started in the earliest stages of the illness. Docosahexaenoic Acid supplementation and cognitive decline in Alzheimer disease: a randomized trial.
Fish Oil Enhances Effects of Green Tea on Alzheimers Disease in Mice. Fish oil, when combined with epigallocatechin‑3‑gallate (EGCG—a polyphenol and antioxidant found in green tea), may affect chemical processes in the brain associated with Alzheimers disease, according to a study published in Neuroscience Letters. This study, which used an animal (mouse) model of Alzheimers disease, builds on previous research linking the disease to peptides (amino acid chains) called beta‑amyloids and laboratory studies suggesting that EGCG decreases memory problems and beta‑amyloid deposits in mice. Fish oil enhances anti-amyloidogenic properties of green tea EGCG in Tg2576 mice.
Study identifies food combination associated with reduced Alzheimer's disease risk. Individuals whose diet includes more salad dressing, nuts, fish, poultry and certain fruits and vegetables and fewer high-fat dairy products, red meats, organ meats and butter appear less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. Food Combination and Alzheimer Disease Risk.
