Proactive Health: Can a Healthy Diet Prevent Memory Loss?

There’s no cure for memory loss, but some studies show that lifestyle changes may help keep your memory sharp. More research is needed, but consider increasing or adding the following foods for a brain-healthy diet:

Beans

One study showed that high levels of vitamins B-6 and B-12 are linked to lower levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease.

Oranges

Some studies show vitamin C can have a protective effect for the brain and dissolve toxic plaques that are found in individuals with memory loss.

Almonds

Vitamin E promotes healthy blood flow, especially to the brain.

Fish

Scientists have found people with low levels of omega-3 had more brain shrinkage and poor performance on memory tests.

Spinach

This leafy green is packed with more than 15 antioxidants that have been show in studies to inhibit the formation of plaques that build up in those with Alzheimer’s disease.
