Foods That May Prevent Alzhiemers Disease

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

A growing body of research suggests that antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent the onset of the disease.

There are still many questions surrounding Alzheimer's disease—a degenerative brain disorder and form of dementia that currently has no cure. Although the evidence is not conclusive, several studies, including one conducted by the Alzheimer's Association, suggest that foods rich in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids may help prevent the onset of the disease.

Antioxidants may help combat the negative effects of the brain's oxidation process. Meanwhile, omega-3 fatty acids may slow the growth of two brain lesions that are hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease.

Consider incorporating the following six "brain foods" into your diet:

Spinach and other leafy green vegetables. These foods contain vitamin E and are also rich in antioxidants. Other good options include kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cantaloupe.

Salmon and other fatty fish, such as tuna. It is believed that these foods, packed with omega-3s, can prevent memory loss. That said, you should talk to your doctor about the effects of mercury in fish and seafood.

Breakfast cereals are often fortified with vitamins, minerals, and folic acid. Check the nutrition label to make sure.

Nuts, such as almonds, walnuts, and pecans. You can also use peanut or sunflower-seed oil as a substitute for canola oil when cooking or baking.

Fruit Salad, made with dark-skinned berries and fruits indicate an abundance of antioxidants. Try a mix of apple slices, cherries, red grapes, raspberries, and strawberries. If you don't want your apple slices to turn brown, sprinkle them with lemon juice.

Grilled or steamed foods are a healthy alternative to fried meat and vegetables, which are fatty and striped of their nutrients. Keep in mind that grilled fruit can also make a great dessert.
