Since we don’t completely understand how Alzheimer’s disease happens, to say that we can definitely prevent it by doing certain things would not be right. However, risk factors for developing Alzheimer’s are clearly known and there are specific lifestyle changes you can make to reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Specific mental exercises, being socially active, etc. seem to help. Keeping other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, at bay also seems to work. Many people with Alzheimer’s seem to have poor nutritional status, on vital nutrients like the whole family of B-Vitamins, so ensure that you are getting the right balance of nutrition that your body and brain need, to stay active.
