Beets May Help Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease

Story at-a-glance -

  • Research suggests beets may be a powerful ally in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, decreasing damaging oxidation of neurons by as much as 90 percent
  • Beets also fight inflammation, lower blood pressure, help you detoxify, lower your risk for heart failure and stroke, and improve brain neuroplasticity
  • Turmeric supplementation has also been shown to improve memory and focus in seniors already suffering mild memory lapses, and reduce amyloid and tau deposits associated with Alzheimer’s
  • One of the most influential dietary factors is the amount of net carbs you consume on a regular basis. A high-sugar diet triggers insulin resistance, which is strongly linked to Alzheimer’s
  • Research shows high-carb diets increase your risk of dementia by 89 percent while high-fat diets lower it by 44 percent
