Studies in England have shown that reducing brain inflammation can stop the progression of Alzheimer’s Disease. The next step is to develop a drug that can be administered to stop the AD. That will take time.
In the mean time a diet that includes the following foods can help reduce inflamation: They include ten brain-healthy food groups, but you don’t need to eat each daily.
Every day: □ Whole grains (three or more servings) □ Leafy greens (one serving) □ Other veggies (one or more servings) □ Glass of wine (opt for red)
Most days: □ Nuts (like almonds and walnuts) □ Olive oil (as main cooking oil)
Every other day: □ Beans
Twice a week or more: □ Blueberries or strawberries □ Poultry
At least once a week: □ Fish
Limit these foods: Butter (less than one tablespoon per day) Fast food and fried food (less than one serving per week) Full-fat cheese (less than one serving per week) Red meat (less than four times per week) Pastries and sweets (less than five servings per week)
It is basically the diet recommended by the Blue Zone Project.
