It’s a common thought that Alzheimer’s is a problem in the brain that starts in the brain. But, there is some interesting data that suggests that Alzheimer’s may originate in the liver.
The liver helps clear out amyloid B plaques so that they don’t spread to other parts of the body. But, when the liver is compromised, it can have a hard time getting rid of that plaquing, which can then develop in the brain.
Symptoms may not arise for 20 years. People often wait until they notice symptoms before they do anything about the problem. So, I want to emphasize this important connection, especially for those who want to prevent Alzheimer’s.
It’s very important to take care of your liver to help prevent Alzheimer’s disease. If you already have dementia, it’s important to immediately start supporting your liver.
