Natural Ways to Prevent, Delay, or Even Reverse Alzheimer's Disease

“You’re not getting any younger.” That expression is often bandied about, frequently in a humorous or playful context. However, the implication of that remark is that you’re getting older, and for a significant number of older and elderly adults, there is the real chance of them developing Alzheimer’s disease.

An estimated 5.4 million Americans currently are living with this most common form of dementia, and that figure is expected to double by the year 2050. While there may not yet be a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, and the causes of the disease have yet to be firmly identified, experts are working hard on ways to help prevent, treat, and ultimately cure the disease.

The good news is that experts have uncovered some potentially helpful natural ways to prevent, delay, and possibly reverse Alzheimer’s disease. For example, you may be familiar with reports that diet can play a significant role in preventing or slowing the disease. If you want to take advantage of that approach, be sure to investigate the Mediterranean diet, which focuses on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, low-fat dairy, olive oil, fish, and fowl and limits red meat, fats, and sugar. Research also suggests exercise can help ward off the disease.

Another natural path involves the use of certain natural supplements or nutrients and their role in preserving cognitive function. That is the approach I will discuss here.
