May 25, 2011Need to be sharp at work tomorrow? Pile your plate high with fruits and vegetables! Researchers followed a group of more than 1,600 mature adults for 10 years, studied their diets and measured their mental sharpness. They found that members of the group who consumed the least amount of foods containing flavanoids displayed twice the rate of cognitive impairment as the subjects who maintained diets with the highest flavonoid content. Some common sources of flavanoids are cranberries, Lima beans, onions, garlic, cabbage and garden peas. You can boost your intake with some great-tasting, flavanoid-rich herbs, like dill, basil, thyme, cayenne or chamomile. Cognitive function typically declines with age, this new study indicates that adding more good food to your diet could help slow that decline.
