Just released that Scotland had an increase in deaths from Alzheimer’s and other dementias year over year of 31%! That is incredible. The US has been increasing it’s Alzheimer’s population by 15% a year with someone dying of it every 66 seconds. The people are getting it at younger ages, it’s not just your grandmother getting old. If we lose our memories, we lose ourselves. The cost to society and to care givers is enormous. The loss wisdom is incalculable.

What is Alzheimer’s? Well it is, in reality, an extremely rare genetic disorder leading to brain loss, dementia and early death. Today it is used as a blanket term for all dementia but what we are seeing today is not classic Alzheimer’s. Something has fundamentally changed in our world to see such a meteoric rise in dementia. The one thing that links us all is food. We are all eating from the same grocery stores, the same food no matter where we live in North America. That was not the case 100 years ago when all food came from local farmers or more likely, your own farm. Our food today is very grain centric, loaded with pesticides and herbicides. We have dropped the healthy fat content from 70% of our calories 100 years ago to just 30% or less today. The brain is made of fat! These dietary patterns were bound to have an effect and now we are seeing it.

 

A recent study1 showed that the biggest difference in dementia brains as compared to normal brains was the amount of cholesterol and the amount of Linoleic acid (the essential Omega-6 fatty acid) it contained. We are literally waging war on our brains with our current dogma of attacking cholesterol and reducing the amount of Omega-6 in our diet.

 

Pure Form Omega® contains the essential Omega-6, in pure, organic form that is cold processed under a blanket of nitrogen to prevent damaging it. Each capsule has a bubble of nitrogen, so no antioxidants or preservatives are needed. Do your brain a favour and try it today. As always, your feedback is what keeps us going.
