Here’s what we do know so far.
There appears to be an age related accumulation of amyloid plaques, that is, fatty deposits in the brains of sufferers of Alzheimer’s Disease, and even in those with senile dementia.
The diagnostic difference between these two are, well, academic really. They both involve progressive memory loss and cognitive decline.
Hope was recently dashed when a study revealed that statin drugs, those used for cholesterol lowering by many for decades now, were not significantly affecting the accumulation of these plaques.
Being in the wellness and supplement world, we ask ourselves:
“What can we do to prepare our community and avoid or delay this scourge"?
So far, no “silver bullet” has been found.
Multiple studies are currently underway at many research centers and a solution, even a partial one, is sure to be found.
Hope springs eternal.
