A Healthy Heart Could Prevent or Delay Alzheimer’s
Research shows that certain heart medications, as well as heart-healthy lifestyle changes, can reduce your risk of cognitive decline.
While there remains no cure for Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a recent study shows that a variety of heart medications can significantly slow the disease’s progression. Another, separate study shows that people with cardiovascular disease demonstrated sharper declines in cognitive function than their heart-healthy peers. By extension, then, in taking good care of your heart you may also be preventing or delaying the onset of AD and other forms of mental impairment.
