Why do Alzheimer's patients love sweets so much? by Connie b. Dellobuono
Answer by Connie b. Dellobuono:
Sugar craving is an addiction that is controlled by our brain (Pituitary gland) and very close to the Serotonin pathway – the direct pathway linked to Alzheimer. Most Alzheimer's have diabetes, metabolic disorder (lack of good bacteria such as acidophilus in gut) and depression. Happy foods include sugary foods. Healthy happy foods are yams, eggs, strawberries, bananas and dark chocolate. The Serotonin and Dopamine pathways are links to Alzheimer's path.
