Anti-Amyloids Linked to Accelerated Brain Atrophy
There are several alternatives to beta-secretase inhibitors for Alzheimer’s disease. One of them is gamma-secretase inhibitors which have been shown to be effective and safe treatments for Alzheimer’s disease 1.
Another alternative is natural beta-blockers such as potassium, garlic, vitamin B1, magnesium, vitamin D, ashwagandha, long walks and acupressure 2. However, recent studies showed that beta-secretase inhibitors did not slow down cognitive decline and were associated with significant side effects in those with mild or moderate Alzheimer’s 2.
