Signs of Alzheimer’s disease disappear with lifestyle changes

This type of diet is rich in fish, olive oil, almonds, whole grains, walnuts, tomatoes and spinach. It helps prevent or delay disease, because the foods in this nutritional plan contain Omega-3, which works on the brain, improving concentration, memory, learning, motivation, mood, and reaction speed.

The diet also contains vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that protect healthy body cells from oxidation caused by free radicals (molecules responsible for aging).

Another research conducted by researchers at Rush University (USA) in 2016 proved that the MIND diet can also reduce a person’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

This eating plan prioritizes daily consumption of vegetables, nuts, beans, fish, poultry, whole grains, and olive oil. The recommendation is to avoid red meat, butter, ghee, cheese, sweets, fried foods and fast food.

According to the scientists, who monitored 900 people for five years, those following the MIND diet had a 53% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, and also rated as cognitively as if they were 7.5 years younger.

It is important to emphasize that it is not only diet that prevents or delays disease. Exercising, reading, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption also delay the onset of dementia. The ideal solution is to keep the brain active, in as many ways as possible.
