Alzheimer's Disease and Antioxidants

Recent prospective studies have indicated that dietary intake of several exogenous antioxidants is associated with a lower risk for Alzheimer's disease.

Healthy Antioxidants

Consuming a healthy diet rich in fish oil can lower the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease, possibly by decreasing inflammation. Fish oil can be obtained from eating fish or by taking supplements.The healthy fats in olive oil may also improve the function and health of the brain. Antioxidants have the ability to bind and inactivate free radicals and thus may offer neuroprotection.

Foods such as blueberries and spinach are rich in antioxidant nutrients that can fight free radical damage in the brain; they also contain a range of vitamins and minerals that may also fight inflammation. Kale, Strawberries, and raspberries are also among the higher ranked foods that provide an antioxidant.

Nutrients

Antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin E, vitamin C, and beta carotene are among the body's natural defense mechanisms against the free radicals as the cause of Alzheimer's disease. Important sources of vitamin E are grains, nuts, milk, and egg yolk

Antioxidant Studies

Foods rich in antioxidants may reduce risk of Alzheimer's disease. The Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation recommends taking vitamin and mineral supplements daily, particularly suggesting Vitamin C and E as well as coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10). Make sure to include at least 7 servings of fruits and vegetables to your everyday routine. Your body and your mind will thank you in so many ways.
