A Healthy PCOS Diet Can Keep Your Mind Sharp in Later Years

A daily Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) diet packed with vegetables may help stave off Alzheimer’s Disease.
 
A survey says eating two to three servings of veggies every day could improve the likelihood of keeping your mind sharp in old age, with leafy greens like spinach, kale and romaine lettuce providing the most benefit.
 
Researchers at Rush University Medical Center studied 3,178 Chicago residents aged 65 and over. Each senior filled out a diet questionnaire and took at least two memory tests during the course of the six-year study.
 
The test scores worsened as time wore on. But seniors who said they ate an average of 2.8 servings of vegetables a day showed 40% less cognitive decline during the study, compared with participants who didn’t eat vegetables so regularly. The study defined a serving as half-a-cup.
 
“People who ate more vegetables could think faster and had better memories,” said lead researcher Martha Clare Morris.
 
The oldest people in the survey, who were at the greatest risk from Alzheimer’s, showed the most memory protection when they reported eating a vegetable-laden diet. Beneficial compounds in vegetables can help preserve healthy blood flow to the brain, reducing the risk of the cognitive decline associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.
 
If you want to enjoy general good health and avoid obesity, vegetables are a crucial part of a balanced, nutritious diet at any age. Combined with regular exercise, diet can also help reverse an underlying cause of obesity, namely the imbalance of blood glucose and insulin called Insulin Resistance. By reversing Insulin Resistance, you can facilitate weight loss and improve your PCOS symptoms.
