Do you SLEEP well? If not, Alzheimer’s may be in your future!

Just a quick entry…

It looks like research is finding that poor sleep and Alzheimer’s may be related!  Sleep is a critical time for the body and mind to repair.  A good nights rest helps wash the Amyloid plaque out.  Amyloid Plaque is responsible for cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s.  A 2014 study in Alzheimer’s & Dementia “found that those who cited regular sleep disturbances had one-and-a-half times the risk of developing Alzheimer’s later in life compared with those who did not report any sleep problems.”

Exercise has also been found to reduce the chances of Alzheimer’s.  Most know that exercise and sleep go hand and hand, so get your ass moving! Get fit, get sleepy and stay healthy!

ps, there is also some chatter on the use of aluminium foil and Alzheimers.  I will dig to see what all that is about!
