YOU and best way to protect brain as YOU age

The following is from lifeextension.com

In 2015 there were two large human trials revealed easier

methods to prevent Alzheimer’s and protect cognitive function

even into our advanced years.

You are about to learn how even modest dietary changes can

slash Alzheimer’s risk by 35% when a healthy diet is consistently

followed.

 

Normal aging is associated with mild cognitive impairment that too

often progresses to full-blown Alzheimer’s.

By the time a typical American reaches age 85m their risk of

displaying clinical indications of Alzheimer’s rises to a startling

45%

The fantastic news is that decades of human and animal research

has led to nutritional approaches that aging individuals can adopt to

drastically reduce their senility risk;

Diet is a powerful environmental factor that affects our thinking

abilities in youth and impacts whether we develop dementia as we

age.

There is a mind diet of 15 dietary components shown to

powerfully impact neurological function for the good or bad

 

The ten brain healthy food groups are:

Green leafy vegetables

Other vegetables

Nuts

Berries

Beans

Whole grains

Fish

Poultry

Olive oil

Wine(moderate)

5 dangerous food groups:

Dr. Axe like the following for brain foods as we age:

Avocados

Beets

Blueberries

Bone broth

Broccoli

Celery

Coconut oil

Dark chocolate

Egg yolks

Physical exercise has the best evidence for preserving memory

and mental function with aging.  And it can help prevent diabetes

High blood pressure

Some studies suggest physical activity also triggers the release of

a protein called BDNF that promotes healthy nerve cells in the

brains.  That could give your memory a boost
