The link between your teeth and Alzheimer's - find out what it is...
Scientists have found a strange link between oral health and the state of the mind.

Regardless of how strange it is, it does give us hope against Alzheimer's because it's something we can control.

Prevent gum disease and keep Alzheimer’s away…

Dentists could soon be thanking scientists at the University of Central Lancashire for a boost in business. This, after their study showed that people who look after their teeth and gums have a lower risk of getting Alzheimer’s.

But what could the link possibly be between gum disease and Alzheimer’s?

It all comes down to Porphyromonas gingivalis, the bacteria responsible for gum disease... 

REVEALED: Combat one of the most vicious “side effects” of an ageing brain

The study showed that the same bacteria that causes gum disease is present in high levels in deceased Alzheimer’s patients.

Scientists believe when the bacteria reach the brain, they trigger an immune response that can lead to the death of neurons – causing brain cell death which could ultimately lead to Alzheimer’s.

Boost your BRAIN POWER in as little as 7 days

…no more ‘senior’ moments thanks to this recent scientific discovery
 
What if combating brain fog, memory lapses, and age-related mental decline...

Was as simple as doing just ONE simple thing every day?

It sounds too good to be true. But research has uncovered the REAL reason you could be ‘silently’ losing your memory and mental agility. 

And, putting a stop to it, just couldn’t be easier.

Take a look at this astounding research!

************************************************ 

In one study involving patients aged 60 and older at West Virginia School of Dentistry, scientists compared participants’ oral health examinations, their performance on a memory test and blood work that measures their level of inflammation to see whether gum disease is associated with memory loss.

According to the study, “the men and women with the highest levels of gum disease bacterium were three times as likely to have trouble recalling a three-word sequence as those with the lowest amounts.

They were also twice as likely to fail on a memory test based on mental arithmetic subtractions, according to the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry.

This mirrors the symptoms evident in patients with early Alzheimer’s disease.

It would be beneficial to brush and floss your teeth thoroughly daily and visit your dentist regularly to reduce these bacteria levels in your mouth – especially if you have a history of Alzheimer’s in your family.
