In this episode, we are talking all about dementia, Alzheimer’s, and the studies that are being done to find a cure. We’re joined by Professor Rí­ona Mulcahy, who was involved in conducting a recent 18-month study in Ireland that may have identified a unique combination of nutrients that can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s. This is a very important conversation for anyone who is health-conscious and prioritizes being both proactive and preventative—altering your diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits has benefits at any age.
