Brain Fuel - Food for Brain Health

There are many individual foods and diets that have been researched for their impact on memory and cognitive health.


In terms of a comprehensive diet, the MIND diet has the strongest evidence in support of brain health and cognitive function. This diet is a hybrid of the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet.


The MIND diet emphasizes the intake of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains while encouraging a low-intake of sodium, processed foods, saturated fats, and dairy.


Adherence to the MIND diet has been associated with a reduction in all-cause mortality and delayed age-related cognitive decline. Adherence to this diet has also been associated with a reduced risk of development or progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.
