Reduce Your Risk of Alzheimer's with These Great Foods!

If you happen to be at high risk of contracting Alzheimer's, changing your diet can help a lot. In fact, there are many foods out there that can help improve your cognitive health and significantly reduce your risk of developing the disease.

1. Blueberries

These are packed full of antioxidants, which can help protect the brain from free-radical damage. Furthermore, they also protect the body from toxic iron compounds that have been known to cause degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.

2. Green Tea

When it comes down to antioxidant-rich foods that can improve brain power, green tea should most definitely be on the list. Its antioxidants support healthy blood vessels in the brain so that it can function properly. Furthermore, drinking green tea may stop the plaque growth in the brain that is linked to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's.

3. Cinnamon

This popular spice can help break up brain plaque and reduce inflammation of the brain that may cause memory issues. Cinnamon is effective in preventing (and delaying) the symptoms of Alzheimer's as it facilitates better blood flow to the brain.

Drink a cup of cinnamon tea each day as well as sprinkle cinnamon powder on your toast, cereal, oatmeal, baked goods, smoothies, and fruit salads.

4. Turmeric

Turmeric's antioxidant power supports overall brain health by helping remove plaque buildup from the brain and improving the flow of oxygen. This helps to slow down the effects of Alzheimer's. Drink a glass of turmeric milk once a day and include it in your cooking to keep your brain sharp for many years to come.

5. Coconut Oil

The medium-chain triglycerides present in coconut oil increase the level of ketone bodies in the blood - these work as alternative brain fuel and improve cognitive performance. As little as one tablespoon of coconut oil per day will improve cognitive functioning and memory in people of all ages.

6. Broccoli

This vegetable is a very rich source of folate and vitamin C, both of which are very important when it comes down to brain functions. Furthermore, the carotenoids present in broccoli lower the levels of homocysteine, an amino acid that is linked to cognitive impairment. Broccoli can also relieve the effects of depression and mental exhaustion. One cup of broccoli two to three times a week can significantly reduce your chance of suffering from dementia and Alzheimer's in your old age.

7. Walnuts

Due to their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties, walnuts may help reduce the risk, delay the onset of, slow the progression of or even prevent Alzheimer's disease. Walnuts help to protect the brain from the beta-amyloid protein, a protein that is often found in the brain of Alzheimer's patients. Furthermore, walnuts are a great source of zinc, a mineral that is great for protecting the brain from free-radical damage. Simply eat a handful of walnuts each day to improve your cognitive health. more
