Omega-3 DHA Supplements for Alzheimer

Having a friend or family member suffering from cognitive decline is reason enough for us all to be concerned ourselves. Believe it or not, 40% of people in the U.S., and elsewhere, will face some form of cognitive decline in their lifetimes. At current rates, within the next decade, the number of persons with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia may double.

Now there is increasing evidence that dietary factors play a major role in onset rates. New research suggests the disease is increasingly preventable. Non-genetic factors include upwards of 90 percent of Alzheimer’s cases. Genetic factors are linked to a receptor in the brain involved in fat metabolism.

Recent studies from the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet show mice given a high fat, high sugar and high cholesterol diet for nine months developed preliminary signs of Alzheimer’s Disease using markers also seen in patients. The study results have yet to be reproduced, but are supported by numerous correlative studies in the scientific literature that suggest diet and lifestyle are increasingly considered central factors in the onset and prevention of the disease.

Top researchers are now reporting that Alzheimer’s, the most debilitating form of dementia, may also be linked to chronic omega-3 DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) nutritional deficiencies. In what is known as the Framingham Study, trial subjects with low plasma DHA levels were at greater risk of onset plus DHA levels were lower in the brain and plasma of patients with dementia.

Doctors always will say diet and lifestyle are the first consideration. In addition, research suggesting DHA is the only omega-3 that protects cognitive function during aging, a topic reiterated by a recent Johns Hopkins Health Alert which states that appropriate levels of dietary DHA alone could help prevent up to 70% of new Alzheimer’s cases. The FDA recognizes DHA levels are an essential part of the healthy structure and function of nerve cells in the brain.

Is prevention linked to something as simple as replacing the bad fats with the good fats? In the past 40 years, there is a correlation between increases in weight gain and Alzheimer’s onset rates. Perhaps the growing rate of all dementia is partly linked to diet and DHA deficiency together. Therefore, one’s diet and DHA intake is at the heart of the question: What are we going to do with grandpa?

What else can you do for yourself? Exercise both your body and your brain. Ironically, studies have found that people who regularly work crossword puzzles and brain teasers like Sudoku, significantly extend the time their brains stay sharp and improve their memory.

DHA Nutritional Supplements

This may be a real failure in our food sources. Omega-3 efas, especially DHA are essential for the optimal functioning of our bodies as well as of our brains. You need omega-3 fatty acids to live a long, healthy, vibrant life!

For this reason, in order to live to your fullest, you need to supplement your omega-3 intake, especially those of DHA and EPA. You should probably research more details on DHA to learn more. But suffice it to say that DHA can be a critical part of brain and body health.

Omega-3 fatty acids generally speaking promote health and well-being by affecting countless of our bodies’ processes.

By way of example, the correct intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids creates a positive influence on your heart health. Not only that, it also makes your brain function better, along with your joints, skin, eyes, including your immunity process.

DHA especially is paramount in brain health.

DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid. DHA is found in cold water fishes. It originally proceeds from the organisms these fish and their food eat. DHA is easily the most prevalent omega-3 acid within the brain. So, you can see why it is so central to brain function! For that reason, DHA, or the deficit of it, may be associated with anything from strokes to Alzheimer’s disease.

Reducing Food Cravings

We’ve all heard the wise old adage that ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day,’ but do you know why? Not only does it kick-start your metabolism and feed your brain some awakening energy, it is also a powerful force in shaping your food choices of the day ahead. This is because a well balanced, nutritious breakfast increases satiety and reduces hunger throughout the day – which influences what types of foods you will eat and importantly – how much…

Protein is the most fundamental feature of breakfast when it comes to setting you up for the day ahead. Eating a protein rich breakfast has been found to actually reduce the brain signals which control food motivation and reward-driven eating behaviour. Protein also slows down the release of energy, which keeps you fuller for longer and less prone to unhealthy snacking before lunchtime. Eggs are a brilliant breakfast food as they contain essential amino acids in the ideal ratio, making them the ‘perfect protein.’ Other great breakfast proteins include yoghurt, lean (grilled bacon), nuts, beans and lentils. Or try quinoa cooked in oat milk with seeds and nuts – a delicious protein-rich twist on porridge.

Fifty percent of the population choose to ignore their hunger pangs and leave the house on an empty stomach in the morning. Skipping breakfast has been strongly associated with unhealthy snacking, over-eating, weight gain and obesity. If you have a sweet tooth and find the biscuit tin to be your mortal enemy, ensure that you start your day with a savoury meal. If you sit down to a bowl of chocolate coated cereal and jam-smeared toast in the morning you will be setting yourself up for sugar hits galore throughout the day and a predictable pattern of over-eating. This is because a sugar-rich breakfast will encourage your energy levels to soar and crash very quickly, leaving you wilting over your desk and in desperate need of a sweet pick-me-up. And this cycle is set to be repeated throughout your day, which is also likely to be punctuated with coffee-shop-stops.

Typical ‘snack foods’ are almost always high in sugar, fat and salt and contribute a substantial heap of empty calories to the diet. Even some ‘healthy’ snack foods have cleverly disguised levels of salt and sugar inside.

Snacking is certainly not an unhealthy habit, as regular nutritional fuel throughout the day keeps your metabolism ticking. It is your choice of snacks that is an important consideration here. Combining a protein source with all meals and snacks provides a much steadier release of energy into the bloodstream which prevents slumps, cravings and over-eating. Some healthy snack choices include fresh fruit with natural yoghurt and seeds, hummus with carrot sticks and celery, or a small handful of nuts with a few pieces of dried fruit.
