8 Health Foods that May Combat Alzheimer’s Disease

When you or someone that you love has Alzheimer’s disease, you want to do everything you can to help them. It isn’t always easy. But in addition to the many brain exercises and living accommodations you research and try, there are also simple updates you can make to their diet. Incorporating healthy foods can make a big difference in overall health, as well as in cognition and mood — and are well worth experimenting! Here are some health foods that you can try.

Leafy Greens

Your mom always told you to eat your greens. She had a point. The vitamin K, calcium and folate in leafy greens like spinach, kale and collard greens can help with cognition and reduce depression.

Oil-Based Salad Dressings

Dress that salad with a tasty oil! Oil-based salad dressing offers you powerful antioxidants to keep you healthy, as well as vitamin E, which may help slow memory loss.

Cantaloupe

In the spring and summer months, share a dessert of sweet ripe cantaloupe. Cantaloupe contains antioxidants that improve overall health and a good dose of beta-carotene, which may reduce the risk of dementia.
