Tasty Trick Slashes Dementia Risk 23%

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

We all know we should be eating an apple a day.

But as it turns out, there’s another type of fruit you should be eating if you want to the keep the doctor away.

Because according to a brand-new study out of Japan, a special type of fruit can help slash your risk of developing dementia by a whopping 23%.

And the best part? It only takes one serving a day to make a real difference.

I’m talking about citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruits, lemon and limes.

And this is far from the first time these fruits have been in the limelight (pun intended) for their brain-boosting powers.

You see, many previous studies have shown that citrus fruits can help shield your brain from dementia.

But it wasn’t until this most recent study that researchers knew just how powerful citrus fruit really is when it comes to keeping your brain healthy.

Researchers from Tohoku University tracked the daily citrus intake and dementia status of over 13,000 seniors.

After careful analysis, the scientists found that folks eating just one serving of any citrus fruit a day were 23% less likely to develop dementia.

Experts believe citrus fruits are so effective against dementia because they contain high levels of nobiletin, a special chemical that has been shown to slow down and even reverse memory problems.

But this doesn’t mean you should say the heck with apples… they’re good for your heart and digestion.

Except now, in addition to enjoying your apple a day, you may want to throw an orange or a grapefruit into the mix.

Live well,
