Wonder Diet SLASHES Dementia Risk 35%
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Let’s face it — trying to follow a balanced diet can be overwhelming and confusing.
It seems like every time you turn around, some TV doctor or nutrition “expert” is telling what you should eat and how.
It’s enough to leave your head swimming!
Fortunately, there’s one easy-to-follow diet out there that most researchers agree could add years to your life.
Even better? It could keep you from EVER developing dementia or Alzheimer’s.
I’m talking about the Mediterranean diet, of course.
And you’ve probably already heard this tasty diet that focuses on fresh produce, fish, olive oil and nuts can help you lower your blood pressure, fight cancer and even beat diabetes.
Due to its incredible health-boosting powers, researchers at the University of California were curious to see if the Mediterranean diet could reduce your risk of dementia.
For the study, scientists examined the eating habits of 6,000 older Americans, looking for links between specific diets and dementia risk.
After crunching the numbers, researchers found that folks who followed the Mediterranean diet were a whopping 35% less likely to develop dementia!
This means you can slash your risk of this devastating disease by over a third and still eat some of your favorite foods!
Researchers believe this diet is so effective at fighting cognitive decline because it’s rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.
And following this delicious diet couldn’t be easier.
All you have to do is ditch the processed foods and start eating meals like tasty leafy greens topped with grilled fish, pistachios and rich olive oil.
Doesn’t sound like a diet at all, does it?
