How to Raise or Lower Your Dementia Risk Through Diet

STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • A high-fat, moderate-protein, low net-carb ketogenic diet is crucial for preventing degeneration that can lead to Alzheimer’s. High-carb diets have been shown to increase your risk of dementia by 89% while high-fat diets lower it by 44%
  • Other research highlights the importance of eating a diet rich in flavonols — antioxidants found in fruits, vegetables and tea. Those who got the highest amounts of flavonols had a 48% lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s than those getting the lowest amounts
  • Drinking tea three times or more per week also lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality. A 50-year-old habitual tea drinker would develop heart disease and/or have a stroke 1.41 years later than someone who drinks it less frequently, and live 1.26 years longer
