Coverage from the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference this month gives us some information on keeping our brains young.
1. Fish – Wild caught Salmon, Scallops, Sardines, Squid, Whitefish, Flounder (avoid farm raised fish)
2. Nuts – Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans, Hazel nuts, Pine nuts, Brazil nuts (not peanuts)
3. Vitamin E – Spinach, Sweet potato, Avocado, Sunflower seeds, Butternut squash
4. B vitamins – Mushrooms, Tomatoes, Broccoli, free range chicken and beef
5. Calcium – Yogurt, Kefir, Kale and other dark green veggies
6. Mediterranean diet – Perhaps the world's healthiest way to eat is the Mediterranean Diet. It is abundant in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes and olive oil. Red wine is consumed regularly but in moderate amounts.
As you can guess, the foods listed have many more vitamins than their listed category. The big take away is to vary your diet. Eating healthy involves googling some recipes and cooking to reduce the chronic inflammation which ages our brains. Inflammation from our poor dietary choices is the cause and aggravation of every disease we face.
We are all concerned about repealing the Affordable Care Act, what the president is doing to health care, and our increasing costs for insurance and health care. We can’t change what the rest of the crazies are doing. We can be in charge of our own health.
Eat to live, don’t live to eat. Americans spend more money on healthcare than any other nation in the world. Yet we rank 28th out of the 188 countries in the world for overall health. We eat what tastes good because that is what we learned to do. Roll it in flour, fry it, put it on a bun with cheese and we will eat anything. The only way to buy good health is in the grocery store. Feed your body what it needs to be healthy.
There are millions of other healthy and tasty things to eat. Try something new. Our phones are smarter than us, use them to google healthy Mediterranean Diet dishes and make them a staple in your house.
Stay Healthy My Friends.
Inflammatory Dietary Pattern Linked to Brain Aging
July 17, 2017
"We found that people who consume less omega 3, less calcium, vitamin E, vitamin D, and vitamin B5 and B2 have more inflammatory biomarkers," study investigator Yian Gu, PhD, Columbia University and the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer's Disease and the Aging Brain
Evidence cited by Dr Gu suggests that dietary factors such as fish, nuts, omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, and folate, as well Mediterranean-type diets, are associated with lower risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and better brain health in the elderly. Other evidence, she said, shows that many foods and nutrients modulate inflammatory processes.
