Zinc deficiency and high copper-to-zinc ratios link to Alzheimer's disease | Dale Bredesen
Whereas the common form of Alzheimer's disease is characterized by memory loss and the inability to form new memories, one subtype of the disease is characterized by profound deficits in organizational skills, math capabilities, and visual perception. It is associated with toxic burden, and it typically manifests early in life. A key player in the pathogenesis of this subtype is zinc deficiency. Zinc is an essential nutrient that participates in metabolism, cognitive function, and immune response. In this clip, Dr. Dale Bredesen describes the role that zinc status plays in the development of the toxic form of Alzheimer's disease.
