Subject: Cognitive decline may be slowed by leafy greens
New research out of Chicago's Rush University Medical Center have shown positive links between a daily serving of green, leafy vegetables and a cognitive function. This functional slip may even be slowed by eleven years due to green, leafy vegetables. The study lasted almost five years, and helped demonstrate this hypothesis. Most importantly, none of the participants showed signs of dementia before the study, so their cognitive function was still high before the study even if the average age was 81.
- Eating just 1 serving of leafy green vegetables a day can help preserve memory and thinking skills.
- The study was conducted over 4.7 years with participants aged 81 years old with no dementia
- Although all participants had a decline in brain functioning, those who ate the most leafy vegetables saw the least decline-0.05 standardized units slower than participants who ate less greens
"According to a new study conducted by Chicago's Rush University Medical Center, just one serving of leafy green vegetables per day could help preserve memory and thinking skills as we get older."
