The race is on. Drug companies are scrambling to come up with the next Alzheimer’s drug.
And when they do, they’re going to see a colossal payday, the likes of which they’ve NEVER seen before. Because with 5.7 MILLION Americans waiting for a cure, so far everything Big Pharma has cooked up has been a dud.
Back in the day, a drug became a so-called “blockbuster” when it raked in at least a billion bucks. But come up with a winning Alzheimer’s drug, and that could be just a drop in the bucket.
In fact, the winner of this race could easily hit $10 billion a year in sales.
Alzheimer’s drugs trial failure rate soar past 99%
But at this rate, I wouldn’t hold your breath. Alzheimer’s clinical trials BOMB a shocking 99.6 percent of the time.
And with less than a handful of ho-hum Alzheimer drugs on the market, most folks can’t expect more than some mild symptom relief. Not to mention those “solutions” can come with some disturbing side effects of their own.
But waiting around for that next breakthrough… or shelling out BIG money for little results with one of the four existing meds on the market… aren’t you’re only options.
Research shows there are already a couple of effective natural approaches you can try starting today. And they will only cost you pennies a day.
I’ll tell you what they are in just a moment. But first, let’s take a quick look at why those Alzheimer’s drugs might be failing. And find out what new research is telling us about the new direction we SHOULD be taking to tackle dementia.
Could inflammation be the REAL cause of dementia?
You’ve heard of beta-amyloid plaques before, right?
They’re the proteins that build up in the brains of folks suffering from Alzheimer’s. And they’re typically the target of any mainstream medicine Alzheimer’s drugs.
But the latest research hints that we might have been looking in the wrong place all along.
Conventional medicine has always treated the inflammation we see in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s as a symptom which shows up only as the disease gets worse.
But it turns out it could be the CAUSE.
2 potent anti-inflammatories could help halt dementia
Which is why two brain-supporting solutions I’ve been recommending for years… omega-3 fatty acids and B vitamins… could be the key to building a protective barrier around your brain. Both battle inflammation.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat which naturally fights inflammation by targeting certain enzymes that trigger inflammation. And B-vitamins reduce levels of an inflammatory amino acid called homocysteine.
But to get the most brain benefits make sure you take them together. In one study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the combo also reduced the brain shrink that’s associated with cognitive decline by an average of 40 percent.
You can stock up on omega-3s by eating more wild-caught-cold-water fatty fish such as mackerel, sardines, trout, and tuna. And some of the best sources of B vitamins include grass-fed meat, poultry, eggs, dairy products, beans, nuts, and leafy greens. Plus both omega-3s and B-vitamins are also available as supplements.
Stop waiting around for Big Pharma’s next Alzheimer’s drug failure and start fighting for your brain health NOW.
