Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia and the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S. Currently, there is no cure for Alzheimer's, but past and present research suggests yoga and meditation could play a vital role in preventing and improving symptoms of the disease.

"If you or your relatives are trying to improve your memory or offset the risk for developing memory loss or dementia, a regular practice of yoga and meditation could be a simple, safe and low-cost solution to improving your brain fitness." - Helen Lavretsky, study author and a professor in residence in UCLA's department of psychiatry, and a researcher at UCLA's Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
