A decline in brain health is not an inevitable part of aging. But how we eat and live can help us protect our memory and stay sharp into old age.
Plant-based foods are beneficial to the brain and may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Research shows saturated and trans fats found in dairy products, meats, pastries, and fried foods can increase the risk for cognitive decline. Berries and foods rich in vitamin E, including nuts, seeds, leafy greens, and whole grains are especially beneficial.
But diet isn’t your only line of defense, lifestyle factors such as exercise and sleep play a role as well. In Power Foods for the Brain, you’ll learn strategies for maintaining memory and improving brain function including how to prepare brain health-promoting meals.
