Did you know that in Canada, currently, there are 564,000 individuals living with dementia according to the Alzheimer Society of Canada. This number is expected to increase to 1.4 million people by 2031.
With so many different forms of dementia, with varying degrees of severity, it is no wonder that at times it is hard to diagnose, find treatment and more importantly find a cure!
Symptoms that may include memory loss, difficulty completing tasks, reduced reasoning, communication problems, mood changes, forgetful of family/friends, and loss of coordination.
Let’s face it, from time to time we all may struggle with a bit of mood changes, difficulty communicating or forgetfulness which we cause us to laugh at ourselves or dismiss, especially if we are over tired or under a lot of stress.
The signs that present in those who suffer from depression; sadness, frustration, anxiety and concentration to name a few, have similarities with symptoms of individuals with dementia. No matter how such symptoms appear, they all impact our overall brain health.
The good news is, we can boost brain function by introducing EVOO into our diets.
Of course we insist that it be high phenolic EVOO!
EVOO actually slows down the aging process and helps to keep our brains young and healthy.
