Did you know that less than 1 percent of those with Alzheimer’s develop it because of a rare genetic mutation? According to experts, that suggests that the remaining 99% of the Alzheimer’s population could’ve potentially prevented or dramatically slowed down the progression of the disease. “This doesn’t make sense,” you say. “Why then are there so many cases if so many cases can be prevented?” Read on to learn more and to learn why.
Brain Degeneration Starts Decades Before Serious Signs
So many people suffer from this debilitating disease because the brain changes that lead to Alzheimer’s begin 20-30 years before an Alzheimer’s diagnosis. So consuming the vitamins and minerals your brain needs to function at its best is not only conducive to firing on all cylinders now, but it’s also imperative to your brain functioning at its best decades from now.
The intense and unquestionable connection between your gut and your brain may be a surprise. You may think of a healthy diet, which includes vitamins and minerals, as a determiner of your waistline and, perhaps, even your skin complexion. Connecting what you put in your mouth to how your brain functions may not be something you thought about– but it’s time that you do.
Your brain is an organ, and it needs your attention just as much as you give all your other organs. Your skin is an organ that you take care of with lotion and sunscreen. Your bladder is an organ you keep from getting uncomfortable with trips to the restroom. Just as you take care of so many other organs in your body, you need to take care of your brain– and a phenomenal step toward doing just that is consuming the vitamins and minerals it requires.
Your Brain Craves & Needs Vitamins & Minerals
To consume those vitamins and minerals that your brain so desperately needs, start with food. If you’re able to eat perfectly, which means only unprocessed foods your ancestors would recognize to obtain all the vitamins and minerals you need, great! But if you’re like so many others, your diet is not perfect.
And when your diet isn’t perfect, nutritional supplements can fill the nutritional gap.
As always, do your due diligence when selecting a nutritional supplement. Do not just go with the most attractive label or the cheapest product. This is your body and your brain that you’re trying to fuel, so all the effort you give toward choosing a nutritional supplement that’s best for you is well worth it.

Your brain is the control panel for your body, so treat it with the care it needs to continue controlling and communicating with your body the way you want it to and the way you deserve.
