Study Finds that Eating These Foods Protects Brain against Alzheimer's.
Notice how parents always tell kids to eat vegetables? Because fruits and vegetables are the healthiest foods.
While eating fruits and vegetables is essential for preventing disease and maintaining a healthy weight, they also benefit your brain health.
According to a November 2022 Neurology research, eating more fruits and vegetables with antioxidant flavonols slows memory loss and reduces dementia risk.
Alzheimer's disease (the most common form of dementia) is expected to develop by 2050.
In the study, researchers followed 961 participants with an average age of 81, and who did not have dementia, for seven years.
Participants completed an annual food-frequency questionnaire, answering how often they consumed foods.
They were also given cognitive and memory tests each year and questioned about various lifestyle factors, such as level of physical activity and how much time they spent doing mentally engaging activities.
