If you think that once Alzheimer's begins nothing you can do will stop it, think again! Not only can you easily prevent this terrible disease, but you can also reverse it once it starts.
This breakthrough came when researchers discovered what causes Alzheimer's. They found out years ago that the disease develops when a toxic protein builds up in your brain over many, many years. In fact, the build-up starts while you're still young and healthy.
As you may know, this toxic protein is beta amyloid. If you have high levels of beta amyloid in your brain cells, it's very likely you will develop Alzheimer's. So keeping beta amyloid under control is the primary way to prevent this dreadful disease.
What researchers have struggled to figure out is what causes the build-up. Just how do you control beta amyloid? It was a difficult question that one team of researchers has finally answered.
And the answer is actually so simple, it may surprise you.
You control beta amyloid by controlling triglycerides.
New studies show that when triglycerides are high, the brain cells become loaded with beta amyloid. This leads to the formation of the plaque we find in Alzheimer's patients. Simply keep your triglycerides low and you stop the build-up of plaque in your brain.
Can You Restore Your Hearing by Taking Nutrients?
Most doctors don't think nutrition has anything to do with hearing loss. But several new studies show just how important nutrition is to your ears - and how some people are actually reversing their hearing loss.

The best news is that you can bring elevated triglycerides down naturally.
One of the easiest ways is to eat plenty of garlic. This popular herb is known for its ability to lower cholesterol and triglycerides. However, you should know that it could take three to four months before you see a significant drop. Be patient and try it for six months. Eating raw garlic, and taking one of the many garlic products available may lower your triglycerides.
Be aware that garlic supplements vary in their chemical makeup. If you're going to take a garlic supplement to lower your triglycerides, I suggest you use Kyolic - the brand used in most studies. You can find it in all health food stores. The dose most studies use is one tablet, three times a day.
But there's a lot more you can do to lower your triglycerides. Next week, I'll show you how - and the earlier you start, the longer your memory will last.
