Hi and hope all is well!

I want to share with you some exciting and surprising new science that can improve your brain health. 

Recently, I was on the
Dr. Oz show discussing the emerging and fascinating link between the gut and Alzheimer’s disease.

I wanted to share with you some important additional information on this topic. 

Scroll down for the latest news on gut and brain health and what you should know about:

  • Super-agers
  • Gut bacteria in Alzheimer's patients
  • Actionable tips to improve your gut health
 
 
Super-agers
  • A study this year looked at super-agers.  These are individuals who are in their 80s and 90s and have memory ability and brain function like a healthy 30 year old.  The study found that the super-agers have similar bacteria in their gut as healthy 30 year olds.
 
Gut Bacteria in Alzheimer's Patients
  • A recent, first of its kind study found that those with Alzheimer’s disease have different types of bacteria in their gut as compared to those without Alzheimer’s.  This new understanding on the link between our gut and Alzheimer’s disease is hopeful in two key ways:

    1. Our gut is now an avenue to develop treatments for Alzheimer’s.
    2. In all of the vast complexity, we do understand key strategies to have a healthy gut and thus a healthy brain.
 
Actionable Tips for a Healthy Gut
  • Studies show that sleep, moderate exercise, and stress management all contribute to a healthy gut and environment for "good bacteria" to thrive.    
  • The actionable tip I mentioned on the Dr. Oz show was to include some prebiotics as part of our diet. Below is a list of prebiotic foods that can feed beneficial bacteria in your body.  It is important to discuss any major nutritional changes with your personal physician.  
 
Healthy Gut Grocery List (Prebiotics)
  • Asparagus
  • Bananas
  • Dandelion Greens
  • Garlic
  • Jerusalem artichoke
  • Leeks
  • Radishes
  • Raw chicory root
 
Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year!
