As 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:

You Can Repair and Nourish Your Endothelium to Help Reduce the Risks for Alzheimer’s and Cardiovascular Disease!
As our last video showed, here is your best plan of action:
- Take ProArgi-9 Plus on a Daily Basis!
- Adopt a Mediterranean Diet Lifestyle!
- Exercise at Least 3 Times per Week!
- Get a Yearly Physical!
Over the course of these four videos we have given you a lot of information and options for improving brain health and function. We have tried to simplify the information into a doable plan of action. One that has the potential to reduce your risk for Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease. The longer you apply this plan the greater the benefit. Now it’s up to you to make the difference in how you and your brain age.
