Sleep Disorders & Dementia

According to Google Health, dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases, and it affects memory, thinking, language, judgment and behavior of oneself. Dementia often happens to old people, and as you may have guess correctly, Alzheimer's Disease is one of the many diseases categorized under dementia.

Recently, a new study published under the online issue of Neurology claimed that 63% of people who experienced Rapid Eye Movement Behavior Disorder (RBD) developed dementia or Parkinson's disease in later life. Speaking of RBD, it's actually a sleep disorder that involves abnormal behavior during the sleep phase, where under such phenomenon, vivid dreams occur, and causing sufferers to be unconsciously acting out their dreams where they might injure themselves or their bed partner.

According to the acting chief executive of this new research, Ruth Sunderland, he pointed out that however, the link between sleep disorder and dementia is not yet conclusive, but it is important for us to know that lifestyle factors play a vital part in reducing our risk of dementia, such as eating a healthy diet and doing regular exercises. In relation to that, GTF products (GTF Milk Powder) could play a very pivotal role in ensuring you a deep and comfortable sleep other than regulating your metabolism.
