Brain Foods That Fight Alzheimer's

Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases  and Alzheimer's disease (AD), is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. Do you know that Alzheimer's disease can strike a person as early as 45. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior.

Practicing a healthy diet is more than counting calories – it’s about choosing the foods that will most fully benefit your body and mind. These brain foods have the power to build your brain up and prevent cognitive decline and the onset of crippling conditions like Alzheimer’s disease.




Antioxidants, monounsaturated fats and omega-3s are big health buzzwords that have one thing in common – they do great things for your body and nourish your brain. Giving your brain the nutrients it needs is essential to longevity. Keep this list of foods handy and make sure to refuel your brain often. It will thank you later.
  • Lentils (kacang dhal) provide a steady stream of glucose to your brain. Glucose, a sugar and key source of energy for cells in the body, is the only fuel your brain can use. The high fiber content of lentils is a key component in keeping your brain in optimal shape. The fiber regulates the release of the glucose, providing a steady stream of fuel that powers your brain cells. 
  • Chia seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids and have been found to keep the arteries of the brain clear of plaque. They nourish the brain by helping communication between brain cells. Sprinkle some into your yogurts, cereals and salads, or munch on them alone.
  • Brazil nuts are an excellent source of healthy, or monounsaturated, fats. They are also high in magnesium, a mineral that’s essential to the transmission of signals between the brain and the rest of the body. Almonds, walnuts and cashews are also excellent brain foods. Eat a fistful of brazil nuts or mixed nuts a day.
  • Coffee can protect the brain. One study found that coffee can help keep the blood-brain barrier intact; this barrier acts as a coating, and protects the brain from unwanted materials and damaging elements, like harmful cholesterol. Another study showed that coffee may also improve short-term memory. Coffee is high in antioxidants; Americans get most of their antioxidants from coffee. Drinking one or two cups a day is healthy, just remember to use modest amounts of milk and sugar.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got
to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It's
simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's difficult to get that "perfect balance" between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you've done a
great job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely
quick for me on Firefox. Outstanding Blog!

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today,
yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough
for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the net will be much more useful than ever before.

Starting the day with a fresh cup of coffee has become very common these days. Almost all of us do this to remain alert and active for the whole day.
