We already know that what we eat can have an effect on our hearts, but our diet can affect our minds, too.
The aptly named MIND diet, short for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay, focuses on certain foods that can help slow cognitive decline in older age.
While there is no cure for cognitive decline, there are ways you can help prevent it. But, when it comes down to it, the way you fuel your body is a vital component to your overall health and wellness. In fact, studies show that a Mediterranean diet can help slow the cognitive effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
