How to ‘De-Age’ Your Brain Through Your Diet
If you want to retain your youthful sharpness, you may want to give this diet a second look.
When it comes to aging…you are “as young” as what you eat! And if you want to retain your youthful sharpness, you may want to give this diet a second look. A study shows that those who follow a Mediterranean Diet — rich in vegetables, seafood, whole grains, and olive oil but low in processed foods and red meat — can slow signs of accelerated brain aging exhibited in obesity. Researchers recruited about 100 people for the trial. They took brain scans before any lifestyle changes were made. Over 18 months, on average, participants lost around 5 pounds, and for every 1% of body weight lost, their brains appeared almost nine months younger than their chronological age, had lower levels of liver fat and improved lipid profile.
