|Before I go any further…green food is great when it comes to brain health.Think spinach, broccoli, kale and many more. But there is another color to be aware of… Purple! The natural plant pigment called anthocyanins gives produce it’s purple color. |
Emerging studies suggest this purple pigment can optimize cholesterol levels which can in turn lower risk for dementia. Heart health is highly connected to brain health.
A Quick Tip:
Include more purple foods like eggplant, plums, purple cabbage, purple grapes and even blueberries. (I know those are blue but they also have anthocyanins).
Studies suggest purple and dark blue foods make up only about 3 percent of the average American’s fruit and vegetable intake.
Key Point:Years before the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia develop there are hidden, subtle, often missed changes happening in our heart that can lead to memory loss. The time is now to take action to optimize heart health to lower risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia.
