Researchers have developed a new method that uses antibody fragments encapsulated in nanomicelles which can cross the blood-brain barrier and reduce levels of amyloid-beta in the brains of mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
People who follow diets rich in leafy greens, olive oil, nuts, and fish, such as the MIND or Mediterranean diet, have fewer amyloid plaques and Tau tangles in their brains than those who follow a more conventional diet.
Taking a vitamin D supplement daily may help stave off dementia in older adults, a new study reports. Researchers found taking vitamin D was associated with adults living dementia free for longer, and there were 40% fewer cases of dementia reported in those who frequently took vitamin D supplements. The effects were significantly greater in women than men.
