Foods That Fight Alzheimer’s

May 14, 2011 1 Comment by

Researchers are finding many links between diet and dementia, and there is evidence that some foods are powerful allies in the battle against Alzheimer’s

  • Fish, especially oily fish like salmon, mackerel, herring, and sardines, are rich in omega-3 fatty acids and should be eaten at least three times per week.
  • Eggs are a good dietary source of choline—a component of lecithin. They are also a good source of iron, vitamin B12, and other B vitamins, an excellent source of protein, and very easy to eat and digest.
  • Wheat Germ and Whole Grains high in lecithin and choline, carbohydrate, vitamin E, B vitamins, and numerous minerals help forestall Alzheimer’s. Whole grain breads are a popular and readily available item to add to anyone’s diet
  • Soy products are rich in choline and provide protein, carbohydrates, calcium, and fiber. They are a good source of folic acid—also known as folate—and are known to lower blood levels of homo cysteine.
