And remember - memory? Diet isn't the only way to preserve memory. If you want to keep your brain sharp as you get older, follow these recommendations:
- Control your cholesterol, blood sugar, and blood pressure levels with diet, exercise, and medicines such as statins or beta-blockers if you need them.
- Quit smoking. One review of studies associated smoking with a significantly higher risk for Alzheimer's disease.
- Get outside for a brisk daily walk. Exercising three or more times a week has been linked to a lower risk for dementia.
- Work with your doctor to keep your weight in a healthy range for your height. A body mass index (BMI) between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered normal.
