    5 Simple Foods That Can Help Prevent Dementia

    Dementia

    Dementia disease is said to be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors including diet and nutrition. It is known that health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity may also contribute to cognitive decline, and are often affected by the foods you eat.

    Nevertheless, practising good nutrition and eating lots of healthy foods is shown to help reduce your risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as you become older. There are some foods that may help people suffering from dementia. Let’s see some of them as we read on.

    1.   Snacks

    Nuts and berries are ideal snacks — both have been linked to better brain health. Blueberries and strawberries, in particular, help keep your brain working at its best and may slow symptoms linked to Alzheimer’s.

    2.   Protein

    The diet calls for beans every other day, poultry twice a week, and fish once a week. Or make bean-and-turkey chilli to eat for a few days. All these foods are high in protein and low in saturated fats, making them good for your overall health as well as for your brain health.

    3.   Wine

    Yes. Wine has been shown to improve brain health and help protect against Alzheimer’s in several studies. But the key is moderation. Typically, that’s one glass a day for women and two for men. More than that can have bad effects on brain health and may make you more likely to get dementia.

    4.   Olive Oil

    It’s delicious on bread, salad, pasta, cooked greens, and any number of other things. It’s also been shown to improve brain function over the long term and protect against dementia.

    5.   Vegetables and Grains

    You’ll need a salad, one other vegetable, and three servings of whole grains every day. Any vegetable will do, but collard greens, kale, and spinach are especially good. Though there’s little research on brain function and grains, part of the science behind the MIND diet may include how the foods work together.
