Alzheimer’s disease is a serious and fast-growing disease that has risen to the point of being the sixth main cause of death in America.

The good news is that there are proven ways that have been documented on people who have been diagnosed with the disease and have been able to turn their symptoms around. The Mary S.

It was found that aerobic exercise helped to improve the cognitive condition of both. More studies have to be conducted to see how long the exercise results stay in effect, but the main thing was there was definitely the improvement.

Researchers there found that giving recipients higher amounts of specific B vitamins cut down on the level of atrophy that the gray matter suffered from the disease. The B vitamins involved were B6, B12 and folic acid, and the results showed a sevenfold improvement!
