Green leafy vegetables like spinach, cabbage and lettuce should be present in the plate of a person. If you eat them every day, you will be able to slow aging of the human brain and prevent dementia.
Talking about this employees of rush University, which investigated the state of the brain of older people.
In total, the work has attracted 960 people (at the beginning of the study, the median age was 81 years). The volunteers were divided into groups depending on the frequency of consumption of green leafy vegetables.
During the 10 years tracked the dynamics of the condition of the people by conducting tests on cognitive ability.
So, the people who almost never consumed green leafy vegetables for 10 years, showed a stronger cognitive decline than people who are actively consuming vegetables. The difference between the two groups were comparable with 11 years of brain aging.
