TIP #10: Got to Love those Grapes

Recently, when my husband and I were coming home from running errands, we noticed a new nursing/Alzheimer's care facility being built nearby.  I commented to my husband that this was the fourth one I had seen in recent months being built within five miles of us.  

 My husband and I realized that the reason so many of these facilities are being built is due to the fact that they are expecting HUGE numbers of people in America to need this type of assistance in the future.  Aside from the staggering cost of these homes is the staggering statistic that more than 13.8 million Americans will be affected by Alzheimer's Disease by 2050 according to the Alzheimer's Organization.  That is nearly TRIPLE the patients that have the disease right now in 2015!

If you are like us, the thought of living our later years in a nursing home or worse, contracting Alzheimer's disease, scares us thoroughly! That is why we find doing all of the things that the experts suggest to prevent the disease is so important. Among some of the tips are the following: 

1.  Eat a healthy diet filled with antioxidant-rich vegetables and fruits, like the Paleo Diet!

2.  Keep your blood sugar at a healthy level, preventing diabetes.

3.  Exercise regularly.

4.  Keep your mind active.

5.  Enjoy an active social life.

Along with these items, I was really excited to learn about a recent study of an antioxidant supplement that my husband and I take daily.  It is called RESVERATROL, and it is found in foods such as red grapes, red wine, cocoa in dark chocolate, and blueberries.  

Here is what the CNN article said about the study on Resveratrol supplementation on Alzheimer's patients:

"The study is encouraging enough that we should certainly go ahead and do a [larger] clinical trial because we showed that it is safe and does have significant effects on Alzheimer's biomarkers," said Dr. R. Scott Turner, professor of neurology at Georgetown University Medical Center and lead investigator of the study..." 

Aside from the promising studies on Alzheimer's Disease, Resveratrol has been shown to help cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, lower inflammation and it is often referred to as the "fountain of youth" (we all can appreciate that)!

My father has been taking a Resveratrol supplement for many years and is still leading an active life of acting and travel.  My mother loves red wine and is also still leading an active life of exercise and travel!  All of these reasons are good enough for my husband and I to love taking this wonderful supplement and eating foods rich in Resveratrol. 

The one that we have been taking is found can be found here

Finally, please note that it is important to take a Resveratrol Supplement that is made from Muscadine grape skins and seeds, as they carry a high amount of Resveratrol.
