We proudly announce the second publication by our "Maximizing Health" initiative:
APOE4 - Risks & Risk Management
APOE is the gene responsible for coding Apolipoprotein E, a key player in our lipid metabolism. APOE comes in 3 significant variants: E2, E3 & E4.
The E4 variant is well known for its association with a significantly higher risk of Alzheimer's disease. Numerous other conditions have been linked to it including different forms of dementia, cardiovascular disease, and decreased longevity. There are several important implications for carriers of one or two copies of the E4 variant, particularly concerning saturated fat and heavy metal detox.
To create this practical guide the team screened more than 800 scientific papers. We found that APOE4 was associated with significant negative effects in almost 20 categories including:
We also propose a risk management strategy for APOE4 carriers based on the latest scientific publications.
