Having the right foods in your diet can substantially reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease and dementia as you age. If you have been eating a typical average person’s diet, it is time to turn to the right foods to save yourself from the grasp of dementia.

Even if you have been eating an unhealthy diet your whole life till now, there is always room for making amends. Whether you are in your midlife such as the thirties or forties or above fifty, changing the diet to the right foods can positively impact your cognitive power.

The symptoms of Alzheimer’s appear around after 20 top 40 years of progress. It can be concluded from this that it is never too late to make changes to help hamper the cognitive decline. This applies even if you are in your forties, fifties, or sixties.

Several pieces of research around the globe have shown that the Mediterranean diet lowers the risk of dementia in the form of Alzheimer’s disease by 35 percent. So, let’s have seven different food tips that will help you remain safe from the grasp of dementia!

1. Fish

It is the iron and iodine components of fish that keep the cognitive functions healthy. They are present in all kinds of fish. However, fattier fish are known to be more beneficial as they are believed to contain more brain-boosting fatty acids, the omega 3. The most popular in this regard are salmon and trout. It is highly recommended that you eat either salmon or trout or any other fish for that matter at least once or twice a week.

2. Leafy greens (dark)

Vegetables are another important food that can do wonders for your cognitive power. Dark leafy green vegetable includes spinach, romaine, kale, etc. The components these vegetables have that help prevent dementia include Vitamin K and brain-boosting antioxidants which fight the free radicals preventing your brain from aging faster.

The pro tip here is to eat the vegetables raw as they provide the most nutrients in raw form. Moreover, it is also advisable to eat them fresh, and as soon as you can as they lose their potency if they are made to wait too long in the fridge. Eat at least one cup every day or every other day.

3. Vegetables (fibrous)

Fibrous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, and brussels sprouts. Due to their richness in fiber, they help to keep to your brain and gut healthy. Eating vegetables is simple and comes with numerous benefits. Have a cup with both lunch and dinner, and you will be greatly reducing the chance of developing dementia.

4. Fruit

This is another easy food that you can add to your diet. However, we are not talking about the extra sweet fruits here. Fruits such as apples, berries, citrus, and pears are full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fibers. As a result, they help keep cognitive power strong and the brain healthy. The best part is that you can find fruits everywhere and eat them anytime. All the mentioned fruits help boost nutrients in your body while keeping the sugar levels balanced.

5. Complex carbs

The glucose and fiber in brown rice, spelled, millet, sweet potatoes, and whole grains are good for your brain. The fiber in them helps you feel full, and their ability to release energy overtime decreases your cravings. It is recommended to keep your diet rich in complex carbs such as sweet potatoes in order to reduce your risk of getting in the grasp of dementia.

6. Legumes

Legumes are all the peas, chickpeas, lentils, and beans. These foods provide you with protein, fiber, and good sugars. Two servings a week should do the trick for you. It is not known how exactly they help the brain, but they sure do keep it healthy. You can try sprouted legumes along with the traditionally cooked legumes as sprouting gives healthy enzymes to the nutrients present in the legumes.

7. Nuts

High amounts of antioxidants and healthy fats are found in unsalted nuts. Moreover, high amounts of omega-4 fatty acids are found in walnuts. It is therefore recommended to eat around one-fourth of a cup of nuts in order to provide the brain with its protective nutrients such as the omega-3 fatty acid.

In Conclusion

If you are thinking that it is too late for you to turn to the right food, think again. It is never a bad time to fix your diet and save yourselves from the dangers of potential disease. We are what we eat, and if we keep what we eat healthy, we stay healthy!


We just completed a very large Homeopathic tablet order that required involvement from 4 different facilities. There was nobody else in the country that was willing to help us that we called until we found superior. First shipment came last week and we couldn’t be happier or more impressed with the team. Thank you Justine, Phil, Stephenie you are the best!

I was choosing between two companies to create a formulation, and it came down to their level of service, expertise and confidence in their ability to execute. After speaking to Phil, their lead guy who knows all things supplements and is very easy to communicate with, was enthusiastic and helped to create a strategy to see my vision through. The last thing you want is a transactional relationship in this industry, so whether you’re a first timer or a veteran, these guys know how to add value no matter what level you’re at. Highly recommend Superior and their team to get the job done.
When they say “Superior” they aren’t kidding. Of over 100 companies on our NSF list that we called, and over 20 that we talked to, Superior was the ONLY one that consistently answered their phones, worked incredibly diligently to problem solve and R&D an incredibly complex patented proprietary product, and consistently was two or three steps ahead of us, the landscape and their competitors. Looking forward to a long relationship Superior!
We’ve been using Superior for over 5 years. We came to them because our last manufacturer stopped making the capsule size I needed. I looked everywhere for a replacement. Luckily, I found Superior. They quoted me a fair price and sourced a hard to find ingredient quickly. In the 5 years we’ve had them make our product, which is a custom formulation, they have never delivered late once. Quality control is very high and I get constant updates from Phil our point person while it is being manufactured. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our previous manufacturer was 3 months late on a production and barely spoke with us. We have run many runs with Superior and as with all manufacturing, there was an order that was a little late because of poor crop growth. Not only did they warn us ahead of time they showed us the list of suppliers they were calling day and night to try to find replacement material. Best company ever!
Jake, Justine and Phil are just a few of the team members we have had the pleasure of working with at Superior. As a marketing agency working in the supplement industry, we work with many suppliers on behalf of our clients. I especially appreciate Superior Supplements Manufacturing because of their dedication to customer relationships. They go to extreme measures to ensure quality ingredients, fair pricing and great turn around times. The staff is also extremely knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this team.
