SUGAR CONSUMPTION AND DIMINISHED BRAIN FUNCTION
ALZHEIMER'S IS DIABETES OF THE BRAIN
COULD SUGAR BE SLOWING YOUR
BRAIN FUNCTION TO A CRAWL?
A study from this month's issue of Scientific Reports (Macrophage Migration Inhibitory Factor is Subjected to Glucose Modification and Oxidation in Alzheimer’s Disease) brought this whole thing to a head --- one more time. It seems that while the mechanism of brain damage (Tau Plaques) was not quite accurate, the underlying premise --- that consuming high glycemic index carbs --- was. The study's abstract states....
"Early Glycation inhibits MIF enzyme activity and ability to stimulate glial cells. MIF is involved in immune response and insulin regulation, hyperglycaemia, oxidative stress and glycation are all implicated in AD. Our study indicates that glucose modified and oxidised MIF could be a molecular link between hyperglycaemia and the dysregulation of the innate immune system in Alzheimer's Disease"
In essence, ADVANCED GLYCLATION END-PRODUCTS (AGES) inhibit the white blood cells (macrophages) that act as garbage scavengers, cleaning up your body on the inside, which leads to immune system reactions (inflammation), DIABETES or at the very least PRE-DIABETES, and OXIDATIVE STRESS, all of which stimulate the most abundant cells in the brain --- the GLIAL CELLS.
As I have shown repeatedly, the number one problem facing America is Blood Sugar Dysregulation (HERE). Why is it such a big deal? Because frankly, it is the root of almost every other non-genetic health issue there is. But here's the good news --- you can take the bull by the horns and actually do something about it. You prevent Diabetes of the Brain (Alzheimer's) in essentially the same manner you would strive to prevent Diabetes. I get it; there may be too much damage to to actually improve everyone who has full blown Alzheimer's Disease. But what have you got to lose?
Retirement will be here sooner than you think. If you plan on enjoying it, I would suggest you start your Alzheimer's Prevention Program right here and now. And if you know people who could benefit from this information, the best way to reach those you love and care about most is via FACEBOOK.
