Recent research now shows that men who suffer from the common skin condition rosacea may be 25% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than those who don’t.
Here’s how the two conditions are linked and how you can protect yourself:
According to a new study in Annals of Neurology, rosacea sufferers may be at a higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
Researchers spent time analysing the medical records of 5.5 million people and discovered that people diagnosed the rosacea, the skin condition which causes sufferers to blush or turn red easily, were 7% more likely to develop dementia and 25% more likely to suffer from Alzheimer’s disease in later life than those who did not suffer from the skin condition.
What seemed to be two unconnected conditions has left researchers now to believe that there might be a common thread between the two.
Study author Alexander Egeberg, M.D., Ph.D. explains how inflammation and antimicrobial peptides are often found in people with rosacea and also been linked to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. These proteins are vital to your immune response.
To fully determine whether treating rosacea whilst sufferers are young can help protect your brain against dementia when you’re older still needs to be carried out.
However, the proteins in the brain thought to contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, beta-amyloid and tau protein might actually suppress as a result of certain rosacea treatments, like the antibiotic tetracycline.
If you think you might be displaying symptoms of rosacea which include:
- Facial redness
- Acne-like breakouts
We recommend Rosacure, which offers a revolutionary, clinically tested, complete solution to treat your Rosacea. It contains special patented ingredients which can only be found in the Rosacure Range which target the underlying causes of reddening skin as well as itching, burning and soreness.
When someone eats spicy food or drinks red wine and gets a flushing response, then this is why, the trigger of the food or wine triggers sensory nerves in the stomach wall, this nerve response sends a message to the face which triggers the release of millions of tiny peptide molecules in the skin. These peptides attach to receptor sites which then triggers stinging, burning, reddening. Rosacea sufferers are known to have a hyperactive stimulation of these receptors sites.
Rosacure also contains MSM, an ingredient which rapidly reduces the release of the chemicals released by this peptide stimulation. These chemicals can damage blood vessels increasing the number of veins on the face and also chemicals which can lead to thickened lumps on the face and nose and also the key reddening trigger chemical. The second important way Rosacure limits Rosacea.
Rosacure also works in a third way to desensitise the skin against reddening triggers such as UV and wind making the skin more tolerant. It also increases the skins resistance by improving the lipid structure in the top layers of the skin.
Last but not least inflammation and peptides leads to a lot of free radicals being formed which prolong the redness and inflammation. Rosacure contains powerful antioxidants to mop these up and so this adds a fourth way Rosacure targets the symptoms of Rosacea.
Unlike other standard antibiotic or antioxidant formulas, Rosacure has all the SPF, moisturising qualities expected of a high class cosmetic but is medically licensed. Evidence and Success Stories available.
