Change in brain due to Alzheimer’s.

This is an amazing invention!!!

Fernana de Felice at the Federal University of Rio de Janerio and some of the colleagues found that people with Alzheimer’s had low levels of hormone compared with healthy individuals. The team did a research on MICE learning about memory deficits by cutting out IRISIN and could reverse the effects by restoring the hormone. In the process of deep learning and memory deficits by cutting out irisin and could reverse the effects by restoring the hormone. When irisin signaling was blocked in mice with rodent version of Alzheimer's the brain benefits of physical exercise were lost. Alzheimer's is a complex disease. Its not like Huntington's or Parkinson's, where one gene is altered and you get the disease," said

senior author Dr. Margaret Pericak-Vance, director of the Hussman Institute. Alzheimer’s is a progressive disease that destroys memory and other important mental functions. It is the most common cause of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities serious enough to interfere with daily life. It accounts for 60 percent to 80 percent of dementia cases. There are seven stages of Alzheimer’s. The six pillars of Alzheimer’s prevention is regular exercise, Social engagement, healthy diet, mental stimulation, quality sleep and stress management. It’s a devastating developmental thing .So just be aware of the six pillars and have some time towards a healthy lifestyle.
