MIND diet reduces risk of Alzheimer’s disease
Compromise between the Mediterranean diet and the DASH diet, the MIND system apparently has a very significant protective effect against Alzheimer’s disease.
Developed by a team of Rush University (Chicago), MIND therefore combines, but less demanding, the precepts of the Mediterranean diet and the main principles of DASH (specific to hypertension).
Specifically, it is based on 10 beneficial components:
- Green leafy vegetables
- Other vegetables
- Berries (blueberries!)
- whole grains
- olive oil
- wine (one glass a day )
Eating certain foods should be limited: the case of red meat, butter and margarine, pastries, fried foods and fast food. The total or partial membership (but significant!) In this plan is accompanied by a qualified benefit remarkable in terms of reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, and the impact is all the more clear that compliance with these rules is strict and long-term. These recommended foods are consumed regularly, every day (whole grains, fruits, vegetables ) one or two times per week (poultry, fish ).
