The nutritious ingredients in the foods we eat every day can slow down the aging of the brain and even restore its power, according to the latest research.
Eating leafy greens has many health benefits, one including brain function.
2 servings a day of any green leafy vegetables (spinach, kale, grape leaves) can rejuvenate the brain for 11 years, primarily due to the large amount of vitamin K.
The study was conducted on older people and it measured their cognitive abilities.
Results of individuals who consumed green leafy vegetables regularly showed that their brain functioned as 11 years younger than the brain of the individuals who don’t consume green leafy vegetables.
This finding has proven the power of green leafy vegetables in the prevention and reduction of the development of Alzheimer’s disease for the first time in history.
Green leafy vegetables are rich in other essential nutrients than:
– vitamin K
– including folate
– beta carotene
which bound together help to postpone the development of dementia.
From now on, you should start consuming these vegetables regularly and help your body and brain function as best as they can for many years to come.
More about Vitamin K:
Vitamin K is a group of structurally similar, fat-soluble vitamins the human body requires for complete synthesis of certain proteins that are prerequisites for blood coagulation and which the body also needs for controlling binding of calcium in bones and other tissues. The vitamin K-related modification of the proteins allows them to bind calcium ions, which they cannot do otherwise. Without vitamin K, blood coagulation is seriously impaired, and uncontrolled bleeding occurs. Low levels of vitamin K also weaken bones and promote calcification of arteries and other soft tissues.
