Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease Part 2!

Alzheimer's and Cardiovascular DiseaseAs we’ve seen from the previous post, there is a natural connection between Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. In your skull is a 3 pound wonder that has 100 billion neurons sending each other electrical and chemical signals in an orchestrated pattern that creates memories and allows for learning. 

Each nerve cell communicates with many other neurons to form networks. These networks of neurons have special jobs. Some help us to see, hear, and breathe. Other networks are involved in thinking, learning, and remembering. To keep everything running requires large amounts of nutrients and oxygen.

It’s your cardiovascular system that will deliver the needed resources for brain function. If your circulation is compromised then you will compromise brain function. Maybe you’ve experienced first hand the emotional and financial costs of being a caregiver to a loved one who has Alzheimer’s or any other form of dementia. Although there are no current cures for Alzheimer’s, there are steps you can take to prevent this dreaded disease.  

How to Prevent Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease Naturally! 

In our previous post we examined how folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, and beta carotene can significantly reduce your risks. In this video we’re going to look at Iron and the Mediterranean diet as part of the mix. Our goal is to give you a game plan for the prevention of Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease since they are strongly related. 

We’re also going to examine how cholesterol, diabetes, and aerobic exercise play a role in your cognitive health. After these videos were produced, we received the Health & Nutrition Letter Volume 10G from Tufts University. Their lead article was “Eat Like a Mediterranean to Protect Your Aging Brain.” The following two quotes will reinforce the information you are about to learn in this next video: 

In an updated analysis of that earlier study of 1,880 older New Yorkers, those who most closely followed a Mediterranean-style diet were at 40% lower risk of Alzheimer’s over 5.4 years than those with lowest adherence.” 

The new analysis also looked at physical activity, finding that participants with the highest level of activity were at 33% lower risk of Alzheimer’s than the least-active subjects. . . that the association of physical activity with Alzheimer’s disease risk was independent to that of the diet.” 

This video will also introduce you to an organ in your cardiovascular system

that makes all the difference in the prevention of Alzheimer’s

and cardiovascular disease since they are strongly related:

A Concise Game Plan to Prevent Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease Naturally! 

In this final video we’re going to put all the pieces together into a concise plan of action. You’re going to learn how: 

  • You need to repair and nourish your endothelial cells to improve their ability to properly produce nitric oxide – the master signaling molecule of your entire cardiovascular system!
  • The amino acids L-arginine and L-citrulline need to be part of your daily diet!
  • Green vegetables are key to improved brain health!
  • You need to consume at least 400 micrograms of folic acid on a daily basis.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids make such a difference!
  • A yearly physical can help you pay attention to your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and iron levels!
  • Exercise can improve brain function! 

Watch and listen as we help you focus this information into a powerful plan of action that everyone can do. This plan of action will significantly reduce the risk for Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease:

Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease Part 1!

 

Alzheimer's and Cardiovascular Disease

The connection between Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease is real. Learning about this connection also becomes the key to preventing both of these diseases.

The educational videos on this page (and in my next post) will help you understand this connection and provide you with a game plan for prevention!  

It’s normal to experience a loss of memory with age. What’s not normal is for this loss of memory to become so dysfunctional that it leads to dementia diseases like Alzheimer’s. Because of this Alzheimer’s has become the number one fear of the Baby Boomer population. That fear centers on experiencing the emotional, physical, and financial devastation of seeing a loved one suffer from this dreaded disease. 

Here’s the good news:  

There are steps you can take to prevent this sad reality for yourself and your loved ones! 

These educational videos will help you develop a simple but highly effective game plan for prevention. You really do have the power to make choices that will enhance your health and lower your risk.  

You Can Prevent Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease Naturally! 

FACT: One out of five people (20%) over 65 and 50% of people over age 85 are afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Approximately 5.2 million Americans and 26.6 million people worldwide currently suffer with this disease. Sources: U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Alzheimer’s Association. 

The other sad reality is that there is currently no known cure for Alzheimer’s. Once you have it it’s a progressively disabling disease that will result in death. 

Pretty depressing until you understand the following: 

The Cure Lies in Prevention! 

That’s right. You have the power to make a significant difference in how this disease affects you, as well as the people around you. There is enough research and clinical data to positively demonstrate that if you properly care for your cardiovascular system you will substantially reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. 

Our first educational video helps set the stage:

The Connection Between Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease! 

Alzheimer’s is a progressive brain disorder and is the most common form of dementia. More and more research is showing that there is a direct connection between Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease.  

This next video will help you understand the connection between your cardiovascular system and brain function. If your circulation is compromised then you will compromise brain function. They go hand-in-hand. To improve both we look at:

  • Antioxidants to Reduce Free Radical Damage!
  • The Need for Folate or Vitamin B9!
  • How Omega-3 Fatty Acids Lower the Risk of Alzheimer’s by 40 to 50 Percent!
  • The Need for Beta Carotene!

Our goal is to help you develop a cost effect, natural approach that can make a significant impact on all aspects of your overall wellness. Enjoy the video:

We’ll Continue This Series on Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease in Our Next Post! 

Folic acid, omega-3 fatty acids, and beta carotene have all been shown to significantly reduce your risks for both Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. In our next post we will examine Iron and the Mediterranean diet as part of the mix. Our goal is to give you a game plan for the prevention of Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease since they are strongly related.  

While I cannot promise you that if you follow the plan of action outlined in my next post you will be free from these dreaded diseases, I do believe you will significantly reduce your risk. Not only can you lower your risk but you can also empower others to lower their risk for Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease as well.

Dr. Louis Ignarro – Nobel Prize Laureate

Preventing and Reversing Cardiovascular Disease thru Nitric Oxide!

In 1998 Dr. Louis Ignarro shared the Nobel Prize in Medicine with two other American scientists for the discovery of Nitric Oxide and how it is the master signaling molecule for the cardiovascular system.  Dr. Ignarro has over 30 years of research in Nitric Oxide.  He firmly believes that Nitric Oxide can both prevent as well as reverse cardiovascular disease. 

How important is preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease?

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both the United States and the world.  Over 60 million Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease.  Heart disease is 12 times more deadly to women than breast cancer.  As you can see by these statistics preventing and reversing cardiovascular disease could make a huge impact on life expectancies especially if it was your own life.

The American Health Journal produced a 30 minute feature on Dr. Ignarro and his work with Nitric Oxide.  This feature can be found on YouTube.  Whoever posted this feature divided it into 3 parts and misspelled Dr. Ignarro’s name (Ignarrao instead of Ignarro).  I wanted to bring all three parts into one blog post.    

The information is excellent.  In Dr. Ignarro’s own words he will tell you how Nitric Oxide and the amino acid L-Arginine can prevent and reverse heart disease naturally to age proof your cardiovascular system.    

Part 1 – Please be patient with the first 45 seconds since it contains a promo for Western University and the lead in to the American Health Journal.  As Dr. Ignarro is introduced, he takes us back to when he received the Nobel Prize in Medicine.  After he shares his feelings about this high honor Dr. Ignarro talks about Nitric Oxide.  How it lowers blood pressure, prevents strokes and heart attacks, improves blood flow to the organs, acts as a vasodilator, protects against coronary artery disease, lowers bad cholesterol levels, and is the body’s natural way to protect against heart disease.  This video abruptly ends and is picked up in Part 2.  Total time is 8:58.

Part 2 – Dr. Ignarro’s completes his discussion about how the body uses the essential amino acid L-arginine to product Nitric Oxide.  How a deficiency in Nitric Oxide is really a deficiency in L-arginine.  Then Dr. Andrew Myers is introduced and he discusses how the endothelial cells regulate the production of Nitric Oxide.  Dr. Ignarro returns to discuss all the different benefits of Nitric Oxide such as keeping the blood vessels healthy, preventing blood clots, maintaining blood pressure, maintaining the normal balance between HDL (good cholesterol) and LDL (bad cholesterol), and the necessity of Nitric Oxide for the prevention of erectile dysfunctionThe segment that I found most interesting was how Nitric Oxide facilitates memory and learning.  Dr. Ignarro even discusses how Nitric Oxide can restore memory and help in Alzheimer’s disease.  Total time is 9:06.

Part 3 – For some reason the sound is a bit off in this segment so please don’t let it distract you.  Dr. Ignarro discusses the importance of diet and vitamins especially the antioxidants found in garlic and green tea.  He talks about the importance of exercise and how exercise has been shown to boost or stimulate Nitric Oxide production.  And, he concludes by talking about his book NO More Heart Disease and how he tried to communicate the science of Nitric Oxide at a level everyone could understand and apply.  Total time is 8:50.

Dr. Ignarro’s Passion!

As you can see and hear from these three videos Dr. Ignarro passionately believes that Nitric Oxide can prevent and reverse heart disease.  He firmly believes that Nitric Oxide is the body’s natural way to protect against cardiovascular disease and without side effects.  Dr. Ignarro and I both share a common goal.  That goal is to educate as many people as possible on the health benefits of an effective L-arginine/Nitric Oxide protocol so that they can work with their physician to help prevent and/or reverse heart disease.

Together we can work to save a million lives!
