If you want to lower your risk of losing your mind to Alzheimer’s, researchers believe you should be consuming two common nutrients that help the brain keep itself clear of memory-damaging plaque. Right now, most of us don’t consume enough of them.

Researchers at UCLA have found that vitamin D3 and omega-3 fatty acids (found in fatty fish) enhance your immune system’s ability to clear the brain of amyloid plaques, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.

“Our new study sheds further light on a possible role for nutritional substances such as vitamin D3 and omega-3 in boosting immunity to help fight Alzheimer’s,” says study author Dr. Milan Fiala, a researcher at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

    I normally don’t subscribe to articles like this although I am aware of some meds that can destroy what they are trying to help.
    reason most of the articles wind up want to sell you something, there like a sale department .
    I Live on SS and can’t afford them. so they are catering to people that have money.

    I am on 3 Prescriptions and that has just been in the last year,and at 83 no one has ever guessed my age past 65-67,so I know the importance of taking care of your self, but I have been on a Victims for 40 years, and it has paid off in health values.
