Alzheimer is a progressive neurological condition. People suffering from Alzheimer will progressively experience a fall in cognitive ability, and increasingly severe memory loss. This can lead to an immense sense of loss for sufferers, and cause huge changes in personality. Now, a new research recently claimed that a drink containing fish oils, which is also available over the counter (OTC) could slow down the progressive nature of the disease.
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the feared diseases as one gets older. When we start to get older, and end up forgetting about recent things, we start to worry about what is potentially happening to us. Similarly, when we watch our spouse, parents, grandparents get more and more forgetful, we might not want to chuck these symptoms to old age and not care enough to get intervention straight away. Alzheimer is a progressive disease and usually gets worse with time, and accounts for 60-80% of dementia cases. Dementia is a more general term and is used to explain a decline in mental ability which can be severe enough to hinder daily life.
