New research published in PLOS Biology also supports adequate Sleep as an efficient trick to combat Alzheimer’s.
Cognitive deterioration due to Alzheimer’s has become exceedingly common in recent times, gearing up scientists to seek appropriate disease management practices.
Besides extensive R&D expeditions in vaccine discoveries, experts are emphasizing lifestyle alterations also.
People living with Alzheimer’s are growing exponentially in the US, with over 18 percent of Americans in the age group of 60 and above are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other variants of cognitive decline.
These recent findings are from Alzheimer’s Association experts.
After the recent expedited approval of the latest Alzheimer’s drug, aducanamab, scientists are also betting on lifestyle alterations to improve brain health.
The chances of cognitive degradation are slimmer in a healthy brain, claim several researchers. Scientists have recently revealed a regular walking routine, at least thrice a week, a Mediterranean diet routine, and recreation such as playing music help delay brain degeneration, thus vital Alzheimer’s management practices.
Toxic protein build-up in the body is adequately controlled with the right Sleep and restful non-rapid eye movement (NREM).
Further, scientists are emphasizing a healthy diet plan to improve Sleep quality. The inclusion of probiotic and prebiotic elements is considered elementary to improve dietary nutrients.
Toxic protein substances in the brain such as amyloid-β (Aβ) and tau contribute to Sleep deterioration and sleep-deprived conditions.
The brain has its waste disposal system wherein the cerebrospinal fluid forces the brain toxins outside the system through the central nervous system’s glymphatic system. Unperturbed deep Sleep further enhances Sleep quality, stoking glymphatic system activities to flush out the brain toxins.
