Can Dementia Be Prevented Through Nutrition? | Amy R. Beaudreault, PhD
The two-year research study measured the effects on brain function of an intervention -- which included nutritional guidance and management of metabolic risk factors -- for age-related dementia. Using the Neuropsychological Test Battery (NTB) test, intervention group scores for overall brain function were 25 percent higher. For executive functioning, intervention group scores were 83 percent higher, and processing speed was 150 percent higher. ... This includes studies on vitamin B12, vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, and phytonutrients, such as those found in cocoa, berries, and nuts, some specifically looking at populations with dementia. Furthermore, certain dietary patterns, such as the Mediterranean diet, may help prevent cognitive decline and dementia.
