In a large observational study, researchers explored the Mediterranean diet’s role in protecting cognitive function in older adults. Rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats, adherence to the Mediterranean diet was linked to a lower chance of cognitive decline over 12 years.

Using a novel scoring system based on blood tests, the study found an association between following the Mediterranean diet and better memory and thinking skills preservation. It is important to note that as an observational study, it suggests a correlation, not causation.

โ€ข The study highlights an association between the Mediterranean diet and reduced cognitive decline.
โ€ข It emphasises the need for additional research to understand the exact nature of this relationship.
โ€ข The findings add to a growing body of evidence on the importance of diet in maintaining cognitive health.

This research offers insights into the potential benefits of dietary choices on cognitive health, reminding us of the power of nutrition in our overall well-being.
