Link between vascular disease and Alzheimer's strengthened

Link between vascular disease and Alzheimer's strengthened By Honor Whiteman, Medical News Today, Published Tuesday 11 April 2017 The more risk factors for vascular disease one has in middle age, the higher the risk may be of developing Alzheimer's disease in later life. This is the conclusion of a new study published in JAMA. A higher number of risk factors for vascular disease in midlife could raise the risk of dementia, researchers suggest.

Fish Oil – A Terrific Lifestyle Choice

Fish Oil – A Terrific Lifestyle Choice By David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM According to the World Health Organization, chronic degenerative conditions now represent the number one health threat globally. That means that, likely for the first time in history, more humans are losing their lives to chronic, and largely preventable, conditions than to trauma, infectious diseases, and even war. Yet, chronic degenerative conditions are largely preventable as they are powerfully linked to lifestyle choices. Diets higher in sugar and carbohydrates coupled with lack of physical activity are strongly related to increased risk for some of the most common degenerative conditions,...

DHA Keeps Your Brain Healthy

DHA Keeps Your Brain Healthy By David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that plays a central role in brain health. As I have discussed before, one of the key factors that correlates levels of DHA to brain health and disease resistance is DHA’s ability to turn on the brains “growth hormone” called BDNF.  In this report, from the Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research, researchers evaluated the level of DHA in red blood cells in a group of over 1500 men and women aged 67 ± 9 years who were dementia free . The study then...

Daily Dose of DHA

Daily Dose of DHA By David Perlmutter, MD, FACN, ABIHM If you follow my work, you know that I strongly advocate for making sure that your diet includes a hearty dose of omega-3 fats, the healthy ones we’ve replaced in our current diet with omega-6 fats. For me, one of the most important omega-3 fats is Docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, and that’s why fish oil or algae-derived DHA is so important. For starters, DHA is a valuable anti-inflammatory, and you all know how dangerous inflammation is to our brains and our bodies. A recent study found that macrophages (a type of...
