Re: Alcohol and Ketones?

I can’t tell you that a little bit of red wine for you is okay, because I frankly don’t know. I think by now we’ve all heard alcohol isn’t good for brain health, especially for ApoE4s. But on the other hand we’ve likely all heard that polyphenol consumption can delay the onset of dementia and reduce...

Re: Does the protectiveness of APOE 2 cancel the 4, in a 2/4?

A friend tells me they are APOE 2/4. Does that exist? If so, does their 2 cancel out their 4? I know 2 is protective, at least when paired with other numbers. Yes, there is such a thing as a 2/4, but the 2 does not cancel out the 4. According to this paper, Association of APOE e2 genotype with Alzh...

Re: Why do different types of saturated fat affect the ApoE4 brain differently?

However, based on my experience, I am increasingly suspicious that it is not saturated fat per se that is the cause. It might be the form of that saturated fat. Try reading the ApoE4.info wiki: Coconut Oil, MCT oil, and other Ketone/Cognition Boosters (salts, esters) . I think that would help expla...

Re: talk about prevention strategies?

Anyone want to talk about prevention strategies? The biggies for prevention that are typically cited are diet, exercise, sleep, reducing chronic stress and avoiding toxins. Although the devil is in the details. For example, there are folks who are convinced a carnivore diet is the only way to go, a...

Re: Omega 3

Hi can someone please share the best brand and how much omega 3 should be taken daily for 4/4. . I can’t believe no one has responded! Placing importance on Omega-3 consumption is one of the incontrovertible tenants for ApoE4s! It’s a little disconcerting if no one else has knowledge on this. This ...

From this article, Root cause of Alzheimer's may be fat buildup in brain cells, research suggests published by Medical Xpress on 19 Mar 2024: Prior research has suggested that Alzheimer's disease is caused by a buildup of beta-amyloid in plaques that grow between nerve cells.

Excerpt from the New York Times, The Food and Drug Administration has decided to delay action on a closely watched Alzheimer’s drug, donanemab, which the agency was widely expected to approve this month. The F.D.A. will instead require d...
