Guide to Eating Right to Avoid Cognitive Decline
This e-Book is a comprehensive review of the latest research on the role of diet and nutrition in maintaining cognitive health. It presents a range of scientific evidence, from large observational studies to animal and human intervention trials, on the impact of individual foods, nutrients and overall diet on cognitive aging. While the research in this area continues, and our understanding necessarily evolves, the guide provides a better understanding of the information that is currently available and helps to wade through the advice given by popular media.
We all know from life experience that there is a significant range in the effects of aging on cognitive function – some individuals experience cognitive decline while others do not. Although there are multiple factors contributing to this disparity, a healthy lifestyle and diet can lower your risk. This guide offers information on changes that you can make to your diet – such as swapping out foods high in saturated fats (e.g. butter, red meat) for those rich in unsaturated fats (e.g. olive oil, nuts, fish) – that may help you to improve your odds for avoiding cognitive decline.
