Healthy Lifestyle Choices May Help Prevent Alzheimers
The brain ages just like other parts of the body as we get older. Brain healthy activities that can help to keep the brain agile include staying mentally active, socially active, physically active and eating a brain healthy diet.
Alzheimer's is a disease with mysteries left to be unlocked. There are risk factors that cannot be controlled, such as genetics. Adopting healthy lifestyle choices are measures that can be controlled and may help to keep the disease at bay.
Stay Mentally Active
Mental decline appears to be connected to altered brain connections as we age. Research has shown that keeping the brain active may increase its vitality. Well educated people have been shown to have a lower incidence of Alzheimer's later in life, so it appears that the mental stimulation of an education has protective benefits.
Keeping the brain active may achieve many benefits. Here are some relatively easy ways to stimulate the brain.
1. Stay curious and commit to lifelong learning
2. Puzzle and crossword puzzles are a great brain activities
3. Attend seminars, school courses and plays
4. Play games
6. Try memory exercises
Remain Socially Active
Research has shown that people who are regularly engaged in casual interaction keep their brain vitality. Recommendations are to stay active in the workplace, volunteer in community groups, join clubs and travel.
Stay Physically Active
Physical exercise maintains good blood flow to the brain and encourages new brain cells.
Exercise can also reduce the risk of heart attack, diabetes and stroke and protect against those Alzheimer's risk factors.
Physical activity does not have to be strenuous, but is most effective hen done regularly. Recommended activities include walking, gardening, bicycling, tai chi, yoga and other activities. About 30 minutes of exercise a day get the heart pumping.
Eat a Brain Healthy Diet
Research has shown that a brain healthy diet is low in fat and cholesterol, reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes and encourages good blood flow to the brain.
Recommended foods include dark skinned fruits and vegetables, cold water fish with omega 3 fatty acids (halibut, salmon, mackerel, tuna and trout) and some nuts.
Vitamins that may be helpful are vitamin E, C, B12 and Folate.
