Do you worry about your mental faculties deteriorating? Here are some ideas to ponder: Your brain's aging can be slowed down or even prevented with the right nutrients.
WebMD and Healthline have compiled a list of five foods that help improve memory and prevent dementia:
a diet high in lean meat and other sources of protein
The diet includes eating fish once a week, poultry twice a week, and beans once a week. ' Alternately, prepare bean and turkey chili to last a few days. Because of their high protein content and low saturated fat content, all of these meals are good for your overall health as well as your brain health.
a wide range of fruits and vegetables
At least three servings of grains and two additional vegetables should be included in your daily meal plan. Any vegetable will do, but spinach, kale, and collard greens are some of the best options. The science behind the MIND diet may take into account how the nutrients interact, despite the lack of research on this topic. Researchers are baffled as to why it is so effective.
Turmeric is the third ingredient.
Several studies have linked the turmeric-derived compound curcumin, which is commonly found in curries, with enhanced cognitive abilities, including improved memory. It has been found that those who eat more turmeric have superior working memory and more energy as well as a calmer and happier outlook on life.
The aforementioned fourth fruit is the avocado.
Avocados, like leafy green vegetables and olive oil, are abundant in vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids. As a result, it appears to be yet another excellent nourishment for the brain.
Nuts, in addition to its anti-inflammatory, anti-carcinogenic, and cardiovascular benefits, may also aid brain function because of their high flavonoid content. Walnuts, in particular, are the nut with the highest concentration of polyphenols. According to at least one randomized controlled experiment, eating a lot of walnuts may slow down cognitive deterioration in elderly adults. The MIND diet suggests nuts as a midday snack on most days of the week.
