Less Processed Foods and Refined Carbs Means Better Memory

According to a recent study, a Mediterranean diet may significantly decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.

“We know from previous research that a healthy diet like this is protective for cardiovascular risk factors like cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes,” said researcher Nikolaos Scarmeas. “Now this current study shows it may help brain function too.”

The Mediterranean diet refers to a diet high in vegetables, legumes, fish and monounsaturated fat sources such as olive oil, and low in saturated fats, meat and dairy. Researchers noted that the traditional diet of parts of Greece and Italy was as high in fat as the U.S. diet, but rates of heart disease were much lower.

Lipoic Acid Lowers Triglyceride Levels

Lab animals supplemented with lipoic acid experienced lowered triglyceride levels up to 60 percent.

“The extent of triglyceride reduction was really dramatic, we didn’t expect it to be this profound,” said Regis Moreau, an assistant professor with the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. “The potential is good that this could become another way to lower blood triglycerides and help reduce the risk of atherosclerosis. It’s pretty exciting.”

Research suggests that Lipoic Acid increases the need for Biotin by lowering levels of Biotin dependent enzymes. Thus Lipoic Acid should always be taken with biotin. Lipoic acid is available in Diaxinol, IPM’s combination supplement designed to stabilize blood sugar, and as a stand alone supplement in Lipoic -CR.
