With the aging population in America on a steady rise, it is important to take steps now so that our senior citizens can maintain their brain health and cardiovascular well-being. One of the main ailments among seniors today is heart disease such as high blood pressure or myocardial infarction (heart attack). A diet including healthy fats and whole grains – namely brown rice, low-fat dairy products like yogurt, etc.; and veggies/fruit will help you reduce these risks further down the road.
Boost Brain Function
As we age, cognitive decline is common. However, certain foods can help “boost” your brain power and keep those cognitive skills sharp. Adding the following foods to your diet can help:
• Nuts and seeds – Almonds, pistachios, and pumpkin seeds are all excellent sources of vitamin E, which has been linked with better cognitive function.
• Fatty fish – Salmon, tuna, and mackerel are all great sources of omega-three fatty acids. These healthy fats have been linked with a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
• Berries – Blueberries, strawberries, and blackberries are all packed with antioxidants and flavonoids, which have been linked with better cognitive function.
A healthy diet is important for people of all ages, not just for younger individuals, and it’s never too late to start. Developing a nutritious diet for yourself and your loved ones is more essential than ever. Poor eating habits have been linked to everything from diabetes to dementia, which means that it’s critical not just now but also as we grow older. Maintaining a brain-healthy diet is important for maintaining overall brain health and cognitive function helps to fight Alzheimer’s disease, and can even improve your mood.
