Reducing Your Alzheimer’s Risk Through Lifestyle Changes: The Science-Backed Ways to Protect Your Brain

Over 6 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease, and this number is projected to rise dramatically to nearly 14 million by 2050 according to the Alzheimer’s Association. As the population ages, more and more individuals will be impacted by this progressive, devastating neurological disorder. This disease robs people of their memories, independence, and abilities over time. Ultimately it leads to loss of bodily functions and death.

While Alzheimer’s cannot yet be cured or reversed, emerging research shows that certain lifestyle factors may help reduce the risk of cognitive decline and slow the progression of symptoms. The food you eat, exercises you do, sleep habits you keep, and way you manage stress could all influence changes in your brain that set the stage for dementia.

How Do Lifestyle Factors Influence Alzheimer's Biologically?

This disease is characterized by progressive neuronal damage and death in the brain. Two key pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer’s are the accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and neurofibrillary tangles of tau protein. Lifestyle factors can influence these underlying biological processes:



A Mediterranean style diet high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation in the brain. Antioxidants remove damaging free radicals while anti-inflammatory foods decrease cytokine production. This protects neurons from injury. Foods high in saturated fat can increase amyloid beta generation.

Physical activity increases blood flow which improves delivery of oxygen and nutrients to neurons. Exercise also stimulates the release of BDNF, a growth hormone that supports nerve cell health and synaptic plasticity. Aerobic exercise may directly reduce tau protein aggregation.



During sleep, the brain clears out waste metabolites like beta-amyloid through the glymphatic system. Lack of sleep hampers this waste clearance. Getting restful sleep is essential for neuronal repair and maintaining cognitive performance.

Stress Management

High cortisol levels due to chronic stress damage the hippocampus area of the brain. Stress-reducing practices lower cortisol, which protects hippocampal neurons involved in memory and learning.

While researchers are still unraveling the precise mechanisms, understanding the biological basis of how lifestyle influences Alzheimer’s risk empowers patients to take proactive steps to support brain health.

Bredesen alzheimer's treatment

A Revolutionary Approach to Alzheimer's Treatment

The Bredesen Protocol tackles Alzheimer’s in an entirely new way by identifying and addressing the root causes driving neural deterioration. Through decades of research, Dr. Bredesen discovered Alzheimer’s has multiple subtypes based on contributing factors:

  • Inflammation – Caused by chronic inflammation that damages neurons
  • Hormonal – Caused by deficiencies in nutrients, hormones and growth factors
  • Metabolic – Caused by insulin resistance and impaired brain glucose metabolism
  • Toxic – Caused by exposures to toxins like heavy metals or mold
  • Vascular – Caused by cardiovascular problems and impaired blood flow
  • Trauma – Caused by cumulative head injuries
