Book Review: A Nutritional Approach to Alzheimer’s DiseaseWhen it comes to Alzheimer’s disease, anything that offers hope gets attention. Dr. Blake analyses the latest scientific information and results from his clinical trials with Alzheimer’s patients at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience Institute on O‘ahu, and dishes us up a simple diet — berries, green vegetables, nuts and beans — to prevent and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and related dementia. The subject is rocket science, but his book is easy to understand. Learn how powerful flavonoids in plant foods preserve brains cells and keep them active. See how how antioxidant vitamins protect our brain cells.

One indicator of Alzheimer’s disease is the presence of amyloid plaques, little fuzz balls that get stuck in the brain and kill off brain cells. He explains ways to reduce these brain plaques, including taking vitamin B12 (little tabs that melt under your tongue, not pills) and eating plenty of green vegetables.

Clogged brain arteries and tiny strokes cause trouble too. If we eat fewer animal fats, blood flow to our brains will increase. If you need a reason to improve your diet, this is it.
