Go Purple for Alzheimer's &
Brain Awareness Month
Join hundreds of thousands of Alzheimer's advocates who are making a difference.

Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death, and affects millions of people daily. At the Association, we are working toward a time when we will have effective treatments, preventive strategies and gold-standard care for all people affected by Alzheimer's disease. Join the network of advocates, and you'll receive timely alerts to take simple actions that will help influence national policy and create widespread awareness of this devastating disease.

What's Normal, What's Not?
The “Mighty Mind” Muffins
These “Mighty Mind” muffins pack lots of brain-healthy ingredients and nutrients in every bite. Zucchini, carrots, raisins and dates help you reach your veggie and fruit goals for the day. Walnuts and chia seeds deliver much needed omega-3 fatty acids plus boost your fiber intake. The spices – cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger – not only add flavor but antioxidants that can benefit your brain too.

Make these ahead on a quiet day. Freeze, thaw and warm for those days when you need a quick breakfast on the run.
