Dr. Dale Bredesen Notable Quotes

“There’s been much controversy because people will say, ‘Oh, there’s no supplement that reverses cognitive decline.’ Well, of course, not by itself. But as a part of an overall protocol, they can be very helpful when you use the right ones in the right ways.”
                                                – Dr. Dale Bredesen


Episode Summary

Alzheimer’s Disease is a neurological disorder that causes the brain to progressively atrophy and die. While it used to be a rare disease, there has been a significant increase in cases in recent years, and scientists have forecasted that that number will only continue to increase if we don’t do anything about it.

In this episode of This Podcast Burns Fat, we’re talking to one of the leading scientists on neurodegenerative diseases and Chief Science Officer of Apollo Health to shed some light on Alzheimer’s Disease while giving us hope in terms of both preventing and reversing the dreaded disease.
