Dementia Aids - Medication or Probiotics

Progurt Team - Friday, January 30, 2015

The Probiotics Institute offers a natural but compelling gut solution to help the structural loss of critical brain function, without side-effects. While most people connect probiotics with better digestive health, increasing scientific evidence shows that gut bacteria play a powerful role in brain health and the prevention of Alzheimer’s.

A study publicised throughout the world this week links a significantly increased risk for developing dementia, including Alzheimer's disease, to taking commonly used medications with anticholinergic effects at higher doses or for a longer time.

The new study tracked the onset of dementia in 3,500 older adults. One of the studies authors, Shelly Gray, PharmD, MS, reported, "Older adults should be aware that many medications—including some available without a prescription, such as over-the-counter sleep aids—have strong anticholinergic effects."

Research is increasingly linking this dominance of pathogenic bacteria with a number of chronic health problems, including obesity, autoimmune disease and poor brain health or dementia. A healthy brain that is less likely to develop Alzheimer’s starts with a healthy gut and a good balance of bacteria.

Five and a half million Americans currently suffer from Alzheimer’s and within 20 years it is predicted that, one in four will suffer from the disease. There is much that we can do with our diet and lifestyle to avoid becoming one of these statistics.

Happy New Year - 2015.

Progurt Team - Monday, January 12, 2015

We wish you a wonderful 2015. We hope that you enjoy the best of health and live long and happy. We wish you a wonderful day today.  “Happy the man and happy he alone, he who can call today his own” (the Roman poet Horace, written 30 years before the birth of Christ.) Yesterday cannot be changed and we cannot change by any worry tomorrow, but we can live the best we can today. So says all wise men.  As all disease begins in the gut, we must strive each new day to have a fit and healthy gut, mind and body. Progurt has been developed to restore healthy human strains of bacteria to your gut to help your mind and body to function optimally.  More...
