Today we’re going to talk about Alzheimer’s prevention and natural ways to support cognitive function.
There is an interesting molecule that helps transport cholesterol into the brain, maintains cholesterol levels, and clears cholesterol out of the brain.
Different variations of a certain gene determine how efficient this process is.
One variation, ApoE4, isn’t very efficient and is associated with a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Without enough cholesterol driven into the neurons, you could lose synapses, especially in parts of the brain that involve memory, learning, and concentration.
However, even if you have this genetic problem, there are things you can do to suppress this gene and potentially help keep it from becoming a problem.
Tips for suppressing this gene:
1. Avoid alcohol
2. Avoid smoking
4. Consume omega-3 fatty acids
5. Take TUDCA
6. Take vitamin D3
