June is Alzheimer's and Brain Awareness Month - Inflammation
Chronic inflammation has an adverse effect on the brain’s structure necessary for cognitive function and is a risk factor for dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease. A study investigating chronic inflammation in middle aged individuals showed that it may contribute to cognitive decline in the decades leading up to old age.
Here are some ways to reduce inflammation:
Physical exercise improves blood flow to the brain and decreases the risk of developing dementia in older age. Even just 20 minutes of exercise can reduce inflammation.
Supplement with Zyflamend™ by New Chapter®. Each dose contains a clinically studied blend of 10 powerful herbs proven to work better together to balance a healthy inflammatory response.
Anti-inflammatory foods should be incorporated daily in your diet such as extra virgin olive oil, berries, fatty fish, tomatoes (especially canned), avocados, green leafy vegetables, nuts and seeds.
