Eat your way to a healthier mind with these essential foods for the brain
Repeating a question over and over again, having problem spelling commonly used words and losing control over one’s behaviors and emotions are some dementia symptoms that slowly destroy the life of the victim as well as the lives of those around him.
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia in people aged 65 and older. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, up to 5.3 million Americans are suffering from this disease and every 70 seconds, someone develops Alzheimer’s!
While it may seem that Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia is an inevitable side effect of aging, some studies are suggesting that dietary interventions may help protect against mental decline and even prevent brain-wasting diseases.
As the cause of dementia is linked to long-term inflammation in the body, foods that possess prominent anti-inflammatory effects may be able to delay age-related cognitive disorders when they are included into one’s diet. In this article, we look at nine commonly available foods that hold this promise.
- Dark Chocolate
- Red Wine
- Wild Salmon
