Cognitive Ability Best Preserved By Healthy Diet, Moderate Exercise

July 14, 2009: 08:32 AM EST
Moderate exercise coupled with a healthy diet comprising whole grains, vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, and nuts not only keep blood pressure under control, it has long-term benefits for cognitive health, scientists report. The key connection is that high blood pressure, or hypertension, is an indicator of potential susceptibility to dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Diet and moderate – not strenuous, at least in women – physical activity work to control high blood pressure and therefore the risk of cognitive decline. "We found that older adults who were sedentary throughout the study had the lowest levels of cognitive function,” a researcher said.
