Recent research indicates that certain bacteria in your gut may produce proteins that can damage the proteins that build up in your. This can lead to the development of Alzheimer’s symptoms and other neurodegenerative brain diseases.
Examiners reported that amyloid plaques present in the brains of patients suffering from Alzheimer’s, and the structures built by gut bacteria, may draw out the similar responses. Amyloid plaque swells, which is stored outside nerve cells. They lead to numerous diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s disease, Type-2 diabetes, amyloidosis, and prion diseases.
All these diseases are due to amyloid accumulation, leading to tissue damage. The plaque build-up in individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s disease appears to be similar to gut bacteria.
According to a recent study, organisms from 192 countries were evaluated against the presence of Alzheimer’s in every region. It was observed that the hygienic countries were at a higher risk of Alzheimer’s and countries that were harboring bacterial organisms had lower risks of Alzheimer’s due to the diversity of different gut organisms.
Another research shows that the signals transmitted by your brain may transmit in the opposite way as well. A study consisting of 36 women, categorized into three groups was conducted. These women were of an age group of 18 to 55. One group consumed no dairy products, the second group consumed diary with no probiotics and the third group ate products with bacteria that may lead to positive effects for 4 weeks.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) proved that the women who consumed bacteria compared to those who did not, showed a decrease in the body’s process of sensations beginning in the gut and they also showed a decline in brain functionality.
The women who consumed probiotics displayed better brain connectivity between vital regions in the brain such as the periaqueductal grey and cognition associated areas. The women who consumed no dairy products showed the best connectivity between periaqueductal grey and cognition regions,
UCLA examiners are researching certain chemicals that transmit signals to the brain and are studying how the brain responses when it comes to abdominal pain, bloating and digestive problems. Researchers may also find ways to treat brain related diseases by manipulating the sensation of gut stuffing.
The research establishes that people who eat a healthy diet have a healthier brain and people who consume high fat foods stand a higher risk of different brain diseases and can also have poor metabolism, which in turn can lead to other digestive complications.
The examiners are also studying the benefits of certain probiotics for brain health and may discover nutritional strategies to treat symptoms of anxiety, mood swings and brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Displaced gut bacteria can lead to inflammation and may be associated with depression and fatigue. Bacteria present in your gut can play tricks with your mind and can alter your brain’s cognitive functionalities.
Alzheimer’s is a genetic disease to an extent, But a high intake of sugary foods and foods rich in fats can also increase the risk associated with this disease. You need to consume foods that sharpen your mind, increase your focus and help you prevent Alzheimer’s.
Autoimmune diseases and Alzheimer’s risk is closely associated with one another. To reduce the risk of brain diseases you need to decrease the chances of autoimmune diseases. A precise combination of bacteria can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s as healthy bacteria may combat with the symptoms of senility.
Alzheimer’s may be prevented with exercise and diet. Leading a sedentary life is not only bad for your body, but can also be detrimental for your health and may stimulate certain brain diseases. So, to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s and live a healthy life, eat well and exercise regularly.
