Nutrients that help your brain cells communicate with each other better

Volume 13    |   Issue 6

One of the most overwhelming things about Alzheimer's is that there's currently no known cure. Both vascular dementia and Alzheimer's disease can have enormous effects on quality of life, and once they strike, sadly, they cannot be reversed. They can, however, be slowed and possibly even prevented. Researchers are constantly conducting studies with the ultimate aim of finding a cure that provides new insights about prevention and slowed progression along the way.

Two such studies have recently been published that highlight the beneficial effects of polyphenols in the fight against dementia. The first, published last year in The British Journal of Nutrition, involved supplementing rats with strawberries or blueberries, which are both full of polyphenols. The researchers found that these berry polyphenols reversed age-related losses in motor and cognitive performance. They suspect this may be because the polyphenols reduce stress signaling, improve neurogenesis, and stimulate the signals involved in learning and memory. The rats' working memories particularly benefited from the supplementation.

The second study, published this year in Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases, also focused on rats. For this study, the researchers investigated chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH), which can lead to both vascular dementia and Alzheimer's. The researchers evaluated the learning and memory of rats with CCH and found that supplementing them with resveratrol, another powerful polyphenol, helped restore synaptic plasticity in the rats. This indicates that resveratrol has neuroprotective effects.

Polyphenols are essential to optimal health, particularly when it comes to protecting the brain. Fruits and vegetables, like the berries used in the first study, are full of polyphenols. But most of us don't eat enough servings or a wide enough variety of these foods to fully experience all the benefits polyphenols can offer us. That's why Advanced Bionutritionals Advanced Polyphenol Formula can aid in giving us a significant boost in protecting our brains. It contains both resveratrol and wild blueberry extract so that you can experience neuroprotective effects just like the rats did every single day.

Polyphenols are just one of many weapons we have in the fight against dementia. If you want to learn about more strategies for avoiding this disease, particularly vascular dementia, subscribers to Women’s Health Letter can refer to the February 2016 issue. You'll find a number of recommendations for helping avoid this disease or reversing its progression in a loved one.
