Consumption of antioxidant rich foods may be beneficial in preventing cognition changes as related to Alzheimer’s disease. Studies suggest that daily intake of high antioxidant foods such as watercress may benefit in preventing damage and improving the outcomes of brain injury and function. In fact high these foods may play a role in neuron building activity.
Studies have shown that the antioxidants present in plum juice are effective in providing protection against age-related cognitive impairment. The beneficial phytonutrients present in plums help in reducing the inflammation in the neurological areas to improve learning and memory functions. Regular consumption of plums also helps in preventing age-related neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.
Lettuce (Except Iceberg)
Neurons are brain cells that form physical connections to make up memory. The death of neurons in particular connections or circuits can result in the loss of memory. In some extreme cases, significant neuronal death can result in the onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s. The extracts from lettuce showed considerable control of neuron cell death due to its role in glucose/serum deprivation (GSD). The research has also mentioned that lettuce has the potential to be used in neuro-protection as a common remedy for neurodegenerative diseases.
