Mind Your Fish And Greens
Today I have the pleasure of sharing a guest post from a woman who offers a very important website for Seniors. It is a wonderful resource that helps to locate an appropriate facility for a loved one or even ourselves as we age gracefully. It is so essential to keep our brains active through exercise, interaction, reading, puzzles, and even foods. Keep healthy and fit by exercising and stimulating our brains with oxygen and nourishment!
5 Foods That May Help Save Your Memory
By Mackenzie Tudor of Senior Homes
The Omega-3 fatty acids in fish like Salmon, and Tuna, are extremely important to keep your mind sharp. Plus, they are a great alternative to other meats that are high in saturated fats.
2. Oil Based Salad Dressings
Healthy Vegetable Oil Based Dressings are high in Vitamin-E, which has been seen to protect your neurons. This benefit has been seen in Vitamin-E rich foods, but not in Vitamin-E rich supplements.
3. Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
We all know that Dark Green Leafy Vegetables are great for you. They are high in both Vitamin E and Folate. Folate has been linked to helping prevent high levels of an amino acid that breaks down the nerve cells in your brain, and puts you at an increased risk for heart disease.
Avocado is another tasty source of Vitamin-E, as well as, critical antioxidant Vitamin-C. All these great Vitamin-E sources have been linked to lower risks of developing Alzheimer’s.
5. Red Wine
While, not technically a food, Red Wine has been seen as reducing the risk for Alzheimer’s when consumed moderately.
All of these foods are important for protecting your brain, but also your health in general. Many of these are part of a balanced diet, and if consumed in moderation can be part of your weight loss plan. Interested in advice on aging gracefully? Check out Seniorhomes.com.
