Leafy Greens Protect Cognition

1 May

Individuals who eat leafy greens, such as spinach, kale, and mustard greens, every day experience slower mental decline than those who eat no leafy greens.

The diets of 954 older adults (at least 81 years of age at the study’s start) who were enrolled in Rush’s Memory and Aging Project were reviewed for 5 years. The researchers found that those who ate 1-2 servings of leafy greens each day demonstrated the mental capacity of someone more than a decade younger, even after accounting for gender, age, education, smoking, exercise, and any heightened Alzheimer’s risk.
