To prevent Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, you have to treat your brain and this organ...

Volume 7    |    Issue 65

Medicine tends to be very narrowly focused. If you have a problem with your heart, medical professionals will usually focus on treating the heart. If your brain struggles to work right, they focus on your brain. But all the organs, tissues, and fluids in your body are interconnected. So it might surprise some people that preventing Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other neurological proteins requires you to treat not only the brain, but also the liver. And there's one nutrient that's showing it has the ability to help both.

To prevent damage to the brain, your body has to clear out toxins. And the liver specializes in clearing out toxins. But as we age, the liver doesn't clear out old, damaged proteins as well as it did when we were young. This causes a buildup of toxic substances that can damage organs, including your brain. And we know they can cause a number of neurodegenerative disorders.

Fortunately, a lot of research has shown that assisting the liver's ability to remove these toxins can help prevent brain (and other) illnesses. One study, several years ago, showed how older mice could maintain their body functions. All they had to do was remove these damaged proteins. Removing these toxins resulted in better liver function.

When I struggled with significant digestive problems several years ago, I had an allergy test done. To my surprise, the biggest allergy I had was salmon. I've eaten fish all my life. It's never been a huge part of my diet, but I love to fish. And eating fish is something I do fairly often. So I was shocked when salmon came out as my biggest allergy.

This study focused on the liver. But the lead author, Dr. Ana Maria Cuervo, went on to do other studies that showed how the buildup of these same proteins were impacting the health of the brain.

So if we know these proteins are causing neurological disease, how can we help our body get rid of them? The answer is to help the liver stay healthy so it can remove these proteins. But you also need to take a nutrient that specifically targets the removal of these proteins. That nutrient is resveratrol.

One study in particular found that resveratrol is particularly effective at removing the plaque in the brain that leads to Alzheimer's disease. In this study, the researchers fed mice resveratrol for 45 days. They found that the nutrient from grapes significantly reduced the plaque in the brains of the mice. The researchers concluded, "This study supports the concept that onset of neurodegenerative disease may be delayed or mitigated with use of dietary chemo-preventive agents (resveratrol) that protect against β-amyloid induced neuronal damage."

So if you want to prevent neurological illnesses, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and other brain disease, then take plenty of resveratrol. And make sure you take care of your liver by taking nutrients that keep it healthy and able to remove these toxins from the body.
