  • Eating Leafy Greens May Slow Memory Loss

Participants were divided into groups based on their consumption of green, leafy vegetables.

Reports state that the participants also underwent yearly testing of their cognitive function and memory.

Intake of primary nutrients and bioactives in green leafy vegetables is associated with slower cognitive decline, according to a study published online December 20 in Neurology. Individuals eating one or two daily servings of vegetables like spinach, lettuce or kale, witnessed much slower cognitive decline. The researchers concluded that vegetables made people eleven years younger than those who did not eat them.

They found that people who ate one serving of green, leafy vegetables had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than people who rarely or never ate them.




Researchers at Rush University Medical Center, in Chicago, used questionnaire responses from 960 elderly adults in retirement communities around the city, who had already been participating in annual cognitive tests.

Study author and nutritional epidemiologist Martha Clare Morris stated that strategies to combat dementia are "critically needed" due to the increasing number of cases occurring.

The new research was published today in the journal Neurology.

According to the findings of a recent study, consuming green, leafy vegetables just might make your mind 11 years younger and reduce the chances of developing dementia. The group which ate the most servings averaged 1.3 servings per day, while the group with the fewest servings ate on average 0.1 servings per day.
