Most of the people prefer to take a healthy diet in their daily life to maintain their health. However, they fail to take vitamins and omega 3 fatty acids. This leads to the condition called Alzheimer’s Disease. This disease results in shrinking of the brain due to inefficiency of vitamins. There is no cure for this disease. At the same time this can be avoided by several the guidelines in terms diets.

This disease can be recognized with certain symptoms like getting confusion unnecessarily, aggression towards others, and the like. This disease results with less memory loss towards any age of a human being. The behavioral aspects will be changed. There is no treatment to stop this disease. But a proper diet may prevent the occurrence of this condition.

Omega 3 fatty acids are used to treat people with low blood pressure. The vitamins which includes of B, C and E will make the nutrients level higher. These vitamins are mainly available in fresh vegetables. The vitamin D and Omega 3 fatty acids are obtainable from all kinds of fishes and sea foods.

On the other hand, trans-fats can promote brain shrinkage. In short, these foods must be avoided to overcome this disease. People with a measurement of 104 trans-fats are subject to further tests and studies. Most of the people are aged 87 and above. The brain volumes are also measured among 42 participants. Among the participants, majority of them have good health conditions but with certain cognitive issues.

This study author is Gene Bowman, MD, MPH of Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. He is also the member of American Academy of Neurology.

Also he said that, “these results need to be confirmed, but obviously it is very exciting to think that people could potentially stop their brains from shrinking and keep them sharp by adjusting their diet”.

Furthermore, Dr. Simon Radley, head of research at Alzheimer’s Research UK, said:

“One strength of this research is that it looked at nutrients in people’s blood, rather than relying on answers to a questionnaire.

“It’s important to note that this study looked at a small group of people with few risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease, and did not investigate whether they went on to develop Alzheimer’s at a later stage.

“There is a clear need for conclusive evidence about the effect of diet on our risk of Alzheimer’s, which can only come from large-scale, long-term studies.”
