Methods

In this review, authors examined 32 feeding studies over the last 4 years to look at foods associated with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer's in patients aged 60 years and older.

Key Findings

"Antioxidant-rich foods (nuts, grapes, cherries) and fatty acid supplementation, mainly n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), improved specific cognitive domains and cognitive-related outcomes in mild cognitive impairment (MCI), mild-to-moderate dementia, and AD."
