Discover the drink that can help prevent dementia

Regular consumption of a fermented milk drink can have positive effects on brain function and even reduce the risk of dementia, a study by researchers at APC Microbiome in Ireland has found. Published in the journal Nutritional Neuroscience, the study analyzed adults aged 25 to 45.

The results suggest that this drink increases the presence of beneficial microorganisms in the gut, which improves associative memory in healthy adults. The relationship between the brain and the gut is closely related, and changes in the gut microbiome can affect neural function, leading to behavioral and cognitive changes.


Furthermore, research suggests that fermented dairy products may provide neuroprotective effects, contributing not only to the treatment, but also to the prevention and progression of cognitive decline associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
