The food you eat supplies crucial nutrients to various parts of your body including brain which is made up of nerve cells. So, is there any food we consume that can have positive impact on the nerve cells especially in the memory area of the brain? To answer that question, a team of researchers conducted a study with over 900 participants with average age of around 81 years and monitored their diet and neurological function closely. Their findings were published in Neurology journal in January 2020. They concluded that those who consumed diet rich in Flavonols may have lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia.


Food examples rich in Flavonols:

  • Kale

  • Spinach

  • Broccoli

  • Oranges

  • Tomatoes

  • Beans

  • Tea

  • Olive oil

  • Red wine

  • Dark chocolate
