One of the most shocking and disturbing predictions that I recently came across was that by 2025, 13 million Americans will have Alzheimer’s disease (currently there are about six million). And there is a connection between tooth loss and Alzheimer’s.
I’ve talked a lot about ways to be proactive about preventing Alzheimer’s, but I have not really discussed ways to be proactive when someone already has this devastating form of dementia.
Although Alzheimer’s is most common among people over the age of 65, the Alzheimer’s Association reports that Alzehimer’s starts to develop 20 years or more before memory loss and other symptoms appear. Just because you may be young does not mean that you can afford to not be proactive about preventing this devastating neurodegenerative disease that is progressive and currently has no cure.
President Biden might want to implement vitamin D testing and supplementation for veterans asap. In a recent study of more than one million U.S. veterans, researchers suggested that supplementation with vitamin D3 (animal sources) and D2 (plant sources) was linked to a 45 percent and 48 percent lower risk of suicide and self-harm.
If you are not adding cinnamon to your coffee, oatmeal, tea or even smoothie, you might want to consider starting asap. The potential health benefits of cinnamon have been discussed for quite some time, and now a recent study found evidence suggesting that consuming cinnamon may help with brain function particularly when it comes to memory and learning.
So many people have been affected by Alzheimers disease! A few of the famous ones include Charles Bronson, Sean Connery, Peter Falk, Charlton Heston, Ronald Reagan, Rosa Parks and Rita Hayworth. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common type of dementia.
Creatine. It’s one of those things many people don’t know exactly what it is, but they know it is important for bodybuilding. Although it is true that creatine is important for building muscle, there is much more to it.
It is true. We really don’t know what cards we will be dealt in life Take Luton Shelton, a professional soccer player from my home country Jamaica. Shelton recently died of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. He was just 35-years-old. He is survived by his wife and three children.
The brain is the most complex organ of the human body. Weighing three pounds, the brain has about 100 billion neurons (nerve cells). Without our brains, we could not walk, talk, eat, breathe, control our heart rate and so much more. I cannot express enough how important it is to be proactive about brain health. Some medical research suggests that we slowly start to lose some of our cognitive skills at the ripe old age of 27!
This disease essentially causes you to lose control of your brain. And if you do not have control of your brain, you may find it difficult to control your body.
Part of what I love most about my job is that I get to learn about different health issues and educate the public about them. The pH Labs team and I really pride ourselves on creating a safe online community where members can share their health obstacles and receive feedback on how they can be proactive about them.
You have probably heard of the term “hangry,” when you are so hungry that you become angry and irrational. It’s like you turn into your evil twin until you get something into your belly.
