Beyond heartburn: probing the association between proton pump inhibitors and dementia

In this episode of the Brain Health Revolution Podcast, we dive into the world of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), commonly-prescribed medications for heartburn and acid reflux.

While these drugs have brought relief to millions worldwide, recent studies have begun to uncover potential links between PPI use and an increased risk of dementia.

We discuss the mechanisms that might underlie this association, the clinical implications for patients, and the broader question of how seemingly unrelated conditions might be connected at a molecular level.

Whether you’re a healthcare professional, a patient on PPIs, or simply someone curious about the intricate web of human health, this episode promises to offer fresh insights into a hotly debated area of medicine.
