What do the vegetable beets and a music beat have in common, other than the same pronunciation? Well, research has shown that they can both provide benefit to those living with Alzheimer’s disease.

In this week’s edition of Alzheimer’s research news you can use our first expert-reviewed article explores how a substance found in beets that give the root vegetable their rich color could help to fight the brain damage that occurs in Alzheimer’s disease. In our second expert-reviewed article, researchers report that music activates parts of the brain spared by Alzheimer’s disease and may be a good way to help ease the anxiety and agitation of the disease. Both provide really great findings to show how a vegetable and music can be a benefit in more ways than one.

As always, if you would like to learn more about the above-mentioned studies, please read the below articles and for more information about Alzheimer’s; please visit our website at www.alzinfo.org.

Together we can end Alzheimer’s disease!
