Nutrient Duo BEATS BACK Dementia
You don’t have to suffer from Alzheimer’s or dementia to experience cognitive decline as you get older.
These slips are usually referred to as “senior moments,” and they show up in day-to-day life in small ways… like forgetting why you walked into a room, or not being able to follow a conversation on TV.
But they’re not inevitable.
A recent study highlighted two key nutrients that can BEAT BACK the root cause of dementia.
And you can get your hands on them today!
Researchers studied middle-aged adults to evaluate the connection between certain dietary antioxidants and cognitive performance over time.
Of all the nutrients they studied, two stood out from the rest: carotenoids and vitamin E.
These dietary antioxidants were associated with improvements in the following measures of cognitive performance:
- Verbal memory
- Verbal fluency
- Working memory
- Executive function
Carotenoids include compounds like beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene.
The results led the researchers to conclude that a diet rich in nutrients like carotenoids, lycopene, and vitamin E can help reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
This connection makes sense, as these nutrients are all potent antioxidants that help combat oxidative stress.
Your brain is especially vulnerable to oxidative stress and the reactive oxygen species (ROS) that it produces because of how much energy it uses.
Oxidative stress contributes to age-related changes in the brain, and has been implicated in Alzheimer’s and dementia, (not to mention heart disease, cancer, and more).
These nutrients can be found in orange and red-colored foods, like carrots and red pepper, and in seeds, nuts, spinach, and avocado.
