For too many of us, Alzheimer’s is waiting in the wings; waiting to usher in the dementia that will rob us of a lifetime of memories and relationships. Waiting to overtake a nation that is currently without a formidable drug to oppose it. How can we fight back against the tide that threatens to take three times the number of casualties it has taken already?

The first thing you should do is buy curcumin now. Curcumin is the active ingredient in turmeric and is your number one preventative weapon against Alzheimer’s disease. Literally, a thousand studies have explored the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits of curcumin, with some research recording noticeable improvement after just a year of ingesting turmeric capsules.

Nearly six years ago, researchers in India published a review of research that investigated curcumin’s anti-Alzheimer’s possibilities. They believed that the ingredient would someday lead to an effective treatment. What does that mean for you? It means that soon curcumin will quickly become a hot commodity. It will be an expensive commodity too, snapped up by drug companies and a market that will drive up the price. Save yourself the worry and hassle; buy curcumin now. Take the supplement or, better yet, simply eat the spice regularly and protect your mind.

Further protection from Alzheimer’s will include a healthy, colorful diet. Be sure to include lots of blue and purple foods that, according to studies, seem to assist in dementia prevention. Try eating blueberries several times a week. Stay away from popular, processed foods as well. Instead move toward a more natural diet, like the “Paleo” diet, which greatly reduces your intake of gluten, a very real danger to health. Read Grain Brain by David Perlmutter to learn more. Finally, a daily dose of organic coconut oil and some time spent exercising will go a long way to improve memory, extend your life, and keep you from getting caught in Alzheimer’s wave.
