Will a Salad a Day Keep Memory Problems Away?
Eating about one serving per day of green, leafy vegetables may be linked to a slower rate of brain aging, according to a study published in the online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.So in essence, a salad a day may be beneficial to brain health.
The study found that people who ate at least one serving of green, leafy vegetables a day had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than people who never or rarely ate these vegetables. The difference between the two groups was the equivalent of being 11 years younger in age, according to study author Martha Clare Morris, ScD, of Rush University Medical Center in Chicago.
