This new research puts inflammation back as the leading contributor to Alzheimer’s.  In particular, there is indication that one cause is a leaky blood-brain-barrier (BBB), not dissimilar to a leaky gut.  The likely suspect is the increased production of leukotrienes that can cause the expansion of both the gut barrier and the BBB.  The best way to reduce leukotrienes is to increase omega-3 fatty acid intake while simultaneously reducing omega-6 fatty acid consumption. This is also in line with research that demonstrates the resolution response in the Alzheimer’s brains is attenuated.  A significant increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids will increase the resolution response in the brain.
