3 Healthy Lifestyle Choices To Slow Down Alzheimer's’
Did you know that you can adopt a lifestyle that might help you prevent or delay the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s disease?
Here are three ways to adopt healthy lifestyle choices that may prevent or slow Alzheimer’s.
Get regular exercise:
A growing amount of research seems to indicate regular exercise might help you avoid Alzheimer’s. Talk with your doctor about the types and amount of exercise that is best for your health.
Consume a healthy diet:
Alzheimer’s prevention is another reason to make a well-balanced diet a priority. One to consider is the Mediterranean diet. It focuses on consuming fruits, vegetables, nuts, legumes, fish, and whole grains. People who live in the Mediterranean have lower incidences of both heart disease and Alzheimer’s.
Practice brain aerobics:
A study published in JAMA Neurology highlighted how giving the brain a regular workout can help protect cognitive health. The sooner you get started, the greater the odds your brain will be protected. Activities that act as aerobics for your brain include learning a foreign language, mastering a musical instrument, reading, and playing board games.
