An Apple a Day May Keep Alzheimer’s at Bay

Guest Author - Debbie Mandel

Latest research notes that the old adage, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, may help neurotransmitters in the brain to restore acetylcholine levels which improve memory!

Apples and apple juice may be among the best foods that baby boomers and senior citizens could add to their diet to help boost brain function similar to medication.

“We anticipate that the day may come when foods like apples, apple juice and other apple products are recommended along with the most popular Alzheimer’s medications,” says Thomas Shea, Ph.D., director of the UML Center for Cellular Neurobiology and Neurodegeneration Research.

In this latest study mice, specifically bred to exhibit Alzheimer’s symptoms, consumed the equivalent of drinking approximately two 8 oz. glasses of apple juice or eating 2-3 apples a day. Dr. Shea claims that consumption of antioxidant-rich foods such as apples and apple juice can help reduce problems associated with memory loss. Blueberries, also said to improve memory, move over! The apple takes center stage.
