Reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s

September is World Alzheimer’s Month.

While there is no cure for the disease, there are healthy steps people can take to reduce their risk for getting it.

One of the biggest things someone can do is exercise, doctors said.

Being active requires the brain to multitask, which produces a chemical that supports memory.

In addition to being active and getting plenty of rest, a third tip doctors have is to focus on a Mediterranean diet. This includes eating healthy fats, lots of leafy greens, and whole foods.

Doctors say these are all great for brain and heart health.

Maybe the most important thing – according to doctors – is simply getting a good night’s sleep.
