When nerve cells are destroyed in the brain, it is called dementia. It is important that you consider the nutritional content of your body in order to minimize nerve damage. One type of vegetable is being shown to be a significant help in reducing your brain disease risk.
Martha Clare Morris (a nutrition epidemiologist) said that adding green leafy vegetables daily to your diet could be an easy way to improve brain health.
As the population ages, there is a sharp increase in dementia cases.
It is crucial to develop effective strategies for preventing dementia.”
According to the study, people who consumed one portion of green leafy vegetables showed a lower rate of cognitive decline in tests of memory and thinking abilities than those who only ate small amounts.
Participants were divided into five different groups according to how frequently they consumed green leafy vegetables. Cognitive assessments were then compared between those who ate the highest amount (each day, 1.3 servings) and those who only ate 0.1 servings.
Participants’ memory and thinking scores declined by 0.08 units each year, according to the study.
The rate of decline in those who consumed the most leafy greens over a decade was 0.05 standardised units slower than that of those who ate less.
According to Morris, this difference is equivalent to being eleven years older in age.
Reduce your chance of developing dementia by eating less saturated fat, such as cheese, bacon and sausages.
Starchy food like bread, potatoes and pasta are also helpful.
Your diet includes more than just the food you eat.
Six to eight glasses of water is the ideal amount of water for reducing dementia risk.
