How To Reduce Your Risk Of Alzheimer's Disease

There are several lifestyle changes you can make to possibly lower your chances of getting this disease. And none are difficult to do.

Eat the right foods
Eat a Mediterranean diet: Lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, legumes, and whole grains, with olive oil being the main source of fat. Moderate amounts of turmeric, the spice used in curry, seem to offer a protective benefit too. Avoid saturated fats, which have been indirectly linked with an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.

Tip: Moderate wine drinkers in particular, both red and white, have been linked with lower levels of Alzheimer’s.

Enjoy coffee
Drink caffeinated coffee every day, if you have no other health conditions that prohibit doing so. One study reported that people who didn’t consume caffeine were more likely to develop Alzheimer’s, and research suggests coffee may even help reduce some of the symptoms in those who already have Alzheimer’s.

Watch your cholesterol
If you have high cholesterol, lower it through diet and exercise. Research shows that people in their 40s with even moderately high cholesterol raised their risk for developing Alzheimer’s by 50 percent.

Keep moving
Be active. Studies have indicated that people who exercise regularly reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s. Get at least 30 minutes of aerobic activity three times a week.

Tip: People who follow a Mediterranean diet and exercise reduce their risk of developing Alzheimer’s by 60 percent, according to one study.

Be a social butterfly
Be a social butterfly. In one study, people with extensive social networks were less likely to develop the disease. But don’t let your socializing lead to frequent sleep loss: Researchers have found a link between chronic sleep deprivation and the development of Alzheimer’s.
