Established by the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month provides educational programs around the world to promote awareness of this disease and raise funds for research. Alzheimer’s disease, commonly referred to as simply Alzheimer’s, was named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a German psychiatrist who had discovered the disease on a patient from a mental asylum in which he was working. Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia, a condition in which the brain’s cognitive skills decline at a rate greater than that from normal aging. Alzheimer’s is process of brain cells degenerating and dying prematurely, causing a loss in memory and other cognitive skills. In addition to memory loss, symptoms of Alzheimer’s include erratic personality or behavior, loss of language skills and abnormal sleeping patterns.
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, 5.4 million Americans are afflicted with Alzheimer’s. The disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Alzheimer’s indirectly affect families and friends of those inflicted with the disease. Due to the impaired cognitive and social skills of Alzheimer’s, victims of this disease have trouble engaging in daily routines by themselves. Most victims live with a caregiver to help them live their lives as regularly as possible. Unfortunately, there is no cure for Alzheimer’s. Although Alzheimer’s is a disease generally associated with the elderly, many people can develop early onset Alzheimer’s in their 40s or 50s. However, there are various methods to reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s including a healthy diet and regular exercise. An active lifestyle for decreasing the risks of Alzheimer’s includes not only physical activity, but mental activity as well. Mental activities involve the stimulation of the brain. Such activities include reading, learning a new language and playing puzzle or strategy games. Keeping the mind sharp is crucial to preventing any experiences of the early stages of Alzheimer’s.
Diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids can also help reduce the risks of suffering from Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. Omega-3 fatty acids can help promote mental and cardiovascular health. They are commonly found in fish. Fish oil supplements, such as those manufactured by Viosan Health, may help improve memory and increase concentration. In addition to omega-3, extract from the ginkgo biloba tree may help improve attention. Viosan Health’s supplements with ginkgo biloba extract may help improve cognitive function.
