The study, completed in The UK and published in the prestigious British Medical Journal, is sure to raise some eyebrows among conventionally-thinking physicians who are still searching for a magic bullet drug. Why? Because the highly accredited researchers state unequivocally that lifestyle is the only answer to prevention - not drugs. Their evidence comes from a large study of more than 7,000 people aged between 45 and 70. The 5,000 men and 2,000 women agreed to undergo verbal and written tests on three occasions over a 10-year period.
Deterioration in the memory and thinking powers of the oldest people in the study was expected, but it was found that the brains of even the youngest were already affected. Amazingly, over a 10 year span, there was a sharp decline in the mental reasoning of men and women aged 45 to 49. The process sped up in the older age groups. Men and women aged 65 to 70 had more memory loss.
It was noted that those whose brains appear to deteriorate fastest may be more likely to develop Alzheimer’s sooner and because if there is any chance of slowing that process, those at highest risk need to be detected and treated at an early stage, before Alzheimer's or another form of dementia becomes apparent.
As I hope you recall, I have been advising of the importance of eating well, exercising and reducing stress. Supplementing your diet with brain specific nutrients contained in the BrainMEND formula is also a must. This formula will help to negate the effects of stress, enhance mental clarity, and protect and regenerate your brain function.
