There are also a number of other dietary insights researchers have found. Indeed, the Mayo Clinic says: “A diet such as the Mediterranean diet — rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and omega-3 fatty acids, which are commonly found in certain fish and nuts — might promote health and lower your risk of developing dementia.
“This type of diet also improves cardiovascular health, which may help lower dementia risk.”
The Alzheimer’s Society explains: “The best way to reduce your risk of dementia is to adapt various aspects of your lifestyle, including eating certain foods, taking regular exercise, not smoking, and maintaining normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels.”
Indeed, the charity says for most people, following the Mediterranean diet is a good way to ensure a healthy diet, which may be important for maintaining good brain function.
