Improve Brain Health with the MIND Diet
If we want to thrive as we age, staying mentally sharp is equally important as keeping physically strong. Unfortunately, dementia is a growing concern. This disease is projected to double every 20 years, reaching more than 65 million by 2030 and more than 115 million by 2050. While traditional drug therapies have not proven to be effective, emerging research shows that lifestyle factors, including the foods we eat, can reduce the risk of cognitive decline.
In this evidence-based webinar, you will learn about the role that neuroprotective diets, like the MIND diet, play in helping maintain cognitive health. You will learn how consuming a combination of 10 brain-healthy foods, and minimizing 5 brain un-healthy foods, can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. Walk away with a better understanding how diet can minimize your risk of cognitive decline, along with brain-healthy tips for meal preparation.
Instructor: Sally Duplantier is the founder of Zing and is focused on helping people “live their best life longer” through better lifestyle choices. She has a certificate in nutrition science from Stanford, is a graduate student at USC studying the science of aging, and recently published a paper on the link between diet and cognitive health with Dr. Christopher Gardner.
