Apples might help combat dementia

In a recently reviewed study published by Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, of Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts in American Academy of Neurology, there is mounting evidence suggesting that flavonoids are powerhouses when it comes to preventing your thinking skills from declining with age. “Our results are exciting because they show that making simple changes to your diet could help prevent cognitive decline,” he says.

The study claims that many flavonoid-rich foods, such as apples and pears, and others fruits and vegetables like strawberries, citrus, celery, peppers, bananas as well as red wine were significantly associated with lower odds of SCD, Subjective Cognitive Decline.

Study results showed that a higher intake of total flavonoids was associated with lower odds of SCD. Many flavonoid-rich foods, such as apples/pears, strawberries, citrus, celery, peppers and bananas, were significantly associated with lower odds of SCD. The writer concluded that “our findings support a benefit of higher flavonoid intakes for maintaining cognitive function in US men and women.”
