It’s what the world has been searching for and praying for. A way to beat Alzheimer’s disease when it matters most.
That’s BEFORE it starts.
New research reveals how the answer may have been hiding in plain sight all along. And what makes this approach SO exciting is that it has THREE major factors in its favor.
Some of the other potential Alzheimer’s solutions you hear about from time to time might check one or even two of the items on that list. But not many are solid on all three – especially the most important one, that last one.
Because when I say this one is “effective,” I don’t mean some minor 5 or 10 percent reduction in risk.
Sure, ANY leg up you can get against a disease as devastating as Alzheimer’s is a good one. But this is so much better than just good…
Because it reveals how one simple action could cut your risk of Alzheimer’s disease almost in half.
Slash dementia risk up to 48%
The secret’s in the sauce… almost literally. Since, as you’ll see in a moment, humble tomato sauce is one of the ways you could enjoy this life-saving benefit.
Tomatoes and other richly colored plants and vegetables are all terrific sources of a pigment called flavonols.
The more of these flavonols you get, the lower your risk of dementia. And according to the new research, folks who get the most overall have a 48 percent lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease than those who swallow the least.
But some flavonols are better than others.
The quercetin found in apples, for example, did NOT cut the risk of the disease (but please keep eating apples, they’re rich in fiber and packed with other benefits).
The three other types had a MAJOR impact on dementia risk…
- Kaempferol cut the risk by 51 percent
- Isorhamnetin cut the risk 38 percent
- Myricetin cut the risk by 38 percent
Wipe out Alzheimer’s risk with COLOR
Since kaempferol is the big winner, let’s start there. It’s also just about the EASIEST of the group to get since it’s in greens like spinach and kale as well as broccoli, beans, and tea.
With little effort, you can have some kaempferol on the plate – or in your mug – at almost every meal.
Isorhamnetin is the fun one. This flavanol is the one you associate with “living the life” because you’ll get it in olive oil and wine as well as rich, delicious, ripe pears (I like Comice pears myself, they’re so sweet it almost feels like cheating).
You’ll even get some isorhamnetin in tomato sauce.
Wine and tomato sauce are twofers here. They’re also terrific sources of myricetin, which you can likewise get from sources such as kale, oranges, and fresh tomatoes.
But really, for maximum benefits – for protection for your brain, heart, and beyond – follow the sage, old advice to “eat the rainbow.” A wide variety of colorful fruits and veggies each day and at every meal will ensure you get all the nutrients you need and then some.
And for a little extra boost, pick up an antioxidant blend from a maker you trust.
