Memory & Foods

Posted: Updated:

What you eat -- could help preserve your memory later in life.

A new study finds eating foods containing omega 3 fatty acids may lower blood levels of a protein called Beta-Amyloids, which is often linked to Alzheimer's disease.

Researchers say its best to start consuming more omega 3's... now rather than later.

Cleveland Clinic Registered Dietician, Carolyn Snyder says, This should be implemented as part of your early meal plan and this is usually something that is 30 years before the actual diagnosis of dementia is made.

Chicken, fish, and nuts are all good sources of omega three fatty acids.
