Vitamin C and Alzheimer’s Disease

Vitamin C, the vitamin we take to fight colds, and is needed for normal growth and development, plays a crucial role in cognitive function.  Researchers in Australia found patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia have lower blood levels of vitamin C than people with normal cognitive function.1 Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.

Alterations in the Brain May Occur as Early as 34 Years Before the Symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease Appear

Researchers at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine found patients had increased levels of Tau, a biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease, as early as 34 years prior to the onset of symptoms.1 https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnagi.2019.00074/full Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are not legally approved yet in San Diego, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, New York, Jacksonville, Seattle, Houston, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Miami, Beverly Hills and other US cities.

Sleep apnea may be linked to higher levels of Alzheimer’s biomarker in brain

According to a study recently released by The American Academy of Neurology, people who experience sleep apnea, or stop breathing while sleeping, may have higher accumulations of the Alzheimer’s biomarker called tau, in an area of the brain that helps with memory. The study will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 71st Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, May 4 to 10, 2019.

Does Gum Disease Cause Alzheimer’s Disease?

The answer to this question is still unclear but new research shows the bacteria associated with chronic gum disease, Porphyromonas gingivalis (Pg) is present in the brains of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. For several years poor oral health has been associated with Alzheimer’s disease but it has not been clear whether gum disease causes Alzheimer’s disease or is a result of Alzheimer’s disease.

Could a diet rich in fish and meat help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease?

In a study published online in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, researchers at the Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s, at the Edith Cowan School of Medicine in Perth, Australia, results showed eating a diet high in protein may prevent or delay of the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.  Scientists evaluated the diets of 541 healthy volunteers and split them into one of three groups; high protein intake, moderate protein intake and low protein intake. Results showed that participants in the high protein intake group, those that consumed ~120 grams of protein a day, were less likely to have high levels of amyloid beta in their brain, reducing their risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

Stem Cell Therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease: From animal models to human clinical trials

Dementia is not a specific disease, but a medical term used to describe a syndrome, or group of diseases, that affect memory, problem solving, and other cognitive abilities. The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, which accounts for approximately 60-80 percent of dementia cases. Alzheimer’s disease like many neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) remains untreatable by current traditional medicine. Alzheimer’s is the result of damaged neurons or nerve cells in the brain. Once the cells in the brain are damaged, they can no longer communicate with other cells resulting in cognitive and bodily dysfunction and ultimately death. The Stem Cells Transplant Institute in Costa Rica, uses government approved stem cell therapy to treat patients with Alzheimer’s disease. Note: Despite all advances in stem cells research and the application of these therapies in many countries all over the world, stem cells therapies are
