Astaxanthin: A Rising Star in Alzheimer's Prevention

Story at-a-glance -

  • In the prevention and treatment of dementia (including Alzheimer’s type) and its associated cognitive changes, the rising star is astaxanthin due to its powerful antioxidant properties
  • The causes of Alzheimer’s disease are multifactorial, and the more risk factors you have, the more likely you will develop this sad, debilitating disease which has few effective treatments, making prevention extremely important
  • Factors known to contribute to dementia include diets too high in fructose, certain health conditions, nutritional deficiencies, and environmental toxins
  • Key approaches to preventing and reducing the symptoms of dementia include good dietary choices, regular exercise (physical and mental), and making sure you are consuming enough B vitamins, vitamin D, vitamin E, and high-quality omega-3 fats
  • Besides astaxanthin, natural treatments that science has shown have promise in the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s are coconut oil, Gingko biloba, and alpha lipoic acid (ALA)
