According to a US News & World Report, the MIND diet created to delay Alzheimer’s by a team of US researchers has also been ranked as the easiest diet to follow and the second-best diet for healthy eating. The diet is said to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by as much as 50%.
MIND diet is a mix of the Mediterranean and DASH ( (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diets. The MIND diet was developed by Martha C. Morris and colleagues at Rush University Medical Center, U.S.A. The diet may also help slow cognitive decline among older adults even though they may not be at risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
To benefit from the cognitive-protecting effects of the diet, the MIND asks to use the following guidelines:
- Eat a green leafy vegetable and one other vegetable daily.
- Eat chicken/poultry at least twice a week.
- Switch to nuts for snacks.
- Eat beans every other day.
- Eat fish at least once a week.
- Have a glass of wine a day.
- Eat berries at least twice a week.
Berries are the only fruit thats part of the MIND diet with some previous studies showing that strawberries have a positive effect on the cognitive function of the brain and the researchers said blueberries are one of the most powerful foods available for protecting the brain. And you’re asked to stay away from the five unhealthy brain food groups according to the MIND diet, which include the following:
- Red meat
- Butter and margarine
- Fried or fast food
