We’re all used to hearing about how exercise and a balanced diet help keep our hearts healthy. But a healthy lifestyle is also essential for looking after your brain. Here we explore some tips that could reduce your chances of developing Alzheimer’s in later life. Alzheimer’s disease affects the brain, causing a range of symptoms such as memory loss, difficulty concentrating and becoming confused and disorientated. Although no main cause has been found, people who keep their blood pressure, cholesterol and weight in check are less likely to develop Alzheimer’s as they get older.
For those who follow a diet without gluten – whether because of Coeliac disease or a wheat intolerance – finding quick and easy dinners can be a challenge. But with Oakhouse, there’s no need to spend hours in the kitchen each day, thanks to our selection of delicious, gluten-free ready meals. Many people who have to avoid ingredients containing gluten – such as wheat, barley and rye – choose to prepare meals from scratch. However, for anyone who finds it difficult to cook each day, it isn’t always easy to find simple-to-make, gluten free dishes. That’s because gluten can crop up where you least expect it, in anything from soups and sauces to some supermarket ready meals.
There has been a large increase in demand for meals to be made without certain ingredients to cater for a wide variety of dietary requirements due to a heightened level of awareness of allergens. However, due to the increase in demand, manufacturers and re-sellers have cottoned on to this; in turn increasing prices for the customer. Thanks to this almost unscrupulous move by the providers to wring more profit from this sector, the gross worth of this market has increased by almost £600 million in only 5 years; now worth an astonishing £806 million.
