Inflammation Could Be Main Cause of Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer’s Disease
Inflammation could be the main cause of cognitive decline in those with Alzheimer’s Disease. This is according to a recent study by The University of Southampton in the UK. The study looked at the question ‘Does gum disease accelerate cognitive decline in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease?’. It also involved colleagues from King’s College London who carried out cognitive assessments of 60 patients who had mild to moderate cases of Alzheimer’s Disease.
The patients had their dental health examined and the blood samples as inflammatory markers. Following re-testing after six months, the patients with gum disease had a six-fold rate increase of cognitive decline. In addition, there was also increased systemic inflammation. Other studies also find that ingress of infection via the gums is a factor in other conditions, such as heart disease.
According to Professor Holmes, the leader of the study, TNF-alpha previously measured the degree of systemic inflammation. TNF-Alpha is an inflammatory module in the blood. It correlates with the pace of cognitive decline in those who have Alzheimer’s disease.
Perhaps what is most surprising to some however, are the 16 clinical trials and various studies that have tried to show a correlation between taking NSAIDs and reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s. Yet despite their hopes to show that NSAIDs slows Alzheimer’s Disease progression by targeting brain inflammation, many of the studies showed that the NSAIDs actually had negative side effects.
While there are other factors that contribute to Alzheimer’s, the main culprit of the disease is inflammation. The good news is that Serrapeptase, Curcumin, Vitamin D3 and Ecklonia Cava can lower inflammation. Moreover, they support the immune system to protect against infection. By dissolving the inflammation, it’s possible to find considerable relief. It also helps in the reduction in symptoms, especially of cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s Disease. Thus, it is also the natural solution for anyone looking for a drug-free alternative to NSAIDs and other painkillers.
