Here’s How to Slow Brain Shrinkage of Alzheimer’s Disease
Here are the encouraging results of the latest research studies for slowing brain shrinkage:
  • Exercise boosts memory as well as improves the cardiovascular system. When you are heart smart, you are brain smart because of improved blood flow to the brain. Learning new movements helps form auxiliary neurological patterns. Aricept (donepezil) slows brain shrinkage when started in the early stages.
  • New drugs are being tested to get rid of amyloid protein in the brain. A brain protein cathepsin B (CatB) may curb brain plaque tied to Alzheimer's disease, possibly inspiring new treatments as published in the journal Neuron. According to Consumer Reports OnHealth intravenous immunoglobulin helps rid the brain of amyloid.
  • A moderate consumption of red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon helps prevent Alzheimer’s Disease. Moderate means: Daily, a 5 oz glass of red wine for women and two 5 oz glasses for men. (Mt. Sinai School of Medicine)
