Inflammation could be the main cause of cognitive decline in those with Alzheimer’s Disease 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?’ and 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 along with blood samples that were measured as inflammatory markers. After retesting after the six-month mark, the patients who had gum disease were found to have a six-fold rate increase of cognitive decline along with increased systemic inflammation. Ingress of infection via the gums has also been shown in other studies to be a factor in other diseases such as heart disease.
Previously the degree of systemic inflammation was measured by TNF-alpha, an inflammatory module in the blood that is correlated with the pace of cognitive decline in those who have Alzheimer’s disease, according to the leader of the study, Professor Holmes.
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 may be other factors involved that contribute to Alzheimer’s, it’s thought that the main culprit of the disease is inflammation. The good news is that Serrapeptase, Curcumin, Vitamin D3 and Ecklonia Cava can lower inflammation as well as supporting the immune system to protect against infection. By dissolving the inflammation, it’s possible to find considerable relief and a reduction in symptoms especially in regards to cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s Disease. It is also the natural solution for anyone looking for a drug-free alternative to NSAIDs and other painkillers.
