What good is having the body of a twenty-something if your brain sputters like it’s decades older?
Cognitive diseases plague millions each year, and even if you’re far from diagnosis, your memory, clarity, and general on-the-ball-ness can all head downhill as birthdays fly by. Latest studies have shown that ingredients that can be found everyday on the market can slow down aging of the brain and even return its power. All you need in order to improve your brain functioning is 2 serving a day of any green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale or grape leaves). These vegetables can help your brain to rejuvenate for 11 years, since they contain larger amount of vitamin K.
The study was conducted on older people and it measured their cognitive abilities. Results of individuals who consumed green leafy vegetables regularly showed that their brain functioned as 11 years younger than the brain of the individuals who don’t consume green leafy vegetables.
For the first time in history, it has been proven that green leafy vegetables prevent and reduce the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Those who consumed one or two servings of foods such as spinach, kale, mustard greens and/or collards daily experienced slower mental deterioration than those who ate no leafy greens at all.
These vegetables contain not only vitamin K, but many other vitamins such as beta carotene, folate and lutein, which as a mix of nutrients can postpone dementia.
