Dietary flavonols and risk of Alzheimer dementia

Filling our plates with flavonol-rich foods regularly may boost our chances of avoiding a diagnosis of Alzheimer's dementia.

​This study investigated the hypothesis that more dietary exposure to flavonols might translate to lower risk of Alzheimer's disease. Researchers analyzed the diets of 1,141 elderly persons with an average age of 81.2 years with and without dementia. 

Researchers found a low incidence of Alzheimer's dementia among the highest consumers of flavonoid-containing foods. "This study concluded that "higher dietary intakes of flavonols may be associated with reduced risk of Alzheimer's dementia."
