Brain Protective Diet

The study’s authors note that each nutrient likely aids in Alzheimer’s prevention in different ways. For example, vitamin E offers its strong antioxidant effect for the prevention of the disease, while omega-3 fatty acids may be related to dementia and cognitive function through an anti-inflammatory effect.

To Try the “Brain Protective” Diet

Part of the diet means a lower intake of high-fat dairy, butter, red meat and organ meat. But great foods to add to your diet include:

•Beets
•Olive oil
•Nuts
•Fish
•Tomatoes
•Poultry
•Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower)
•Fruits
•Leafy green vegetables
While there is no cure for Alzheimer’s and the causes are still largely unknown, we can all benefit from adding these brain-friendly foods into our diets.
