    Default The Connection Between Good Nutrition and Good Cognition

    Alice G. Walton
    JAN 13 2012

    A study that looked at biomarkers in the blood to correlate vitamins and brain function found very clear links between nutrition and brain health.

    A new study goes deeper in understanding the connection between good nutrition and a healthy brain. Previous studies have linked individual vitamin deficiencies to cognitive decline. But new research looks at a wider range of vitamins, and even better, it uses biomarkers in the blood to correlate vitamins with brain health, both good and bad.

    Many studies exploring the relationship between nutrition and cognitive health rely on people's personal reports of their diets -- a notoriously unreliable way to gather personal nutritional information. For this reason, the researchers behind the current study decided to use a more objective means of studying the nutrition-brain link: they looked at biomarkers in the blood to measure the vitamin levels in 104 participants. They also had participants take tests to measure thinking and memory function, and 42 participants had MRI scans to measure their brain volume.

    That is an excellent article, Maurya. It is NOT a self-reported diet study; instead they actually measured vitamins and Omega-3 fatty acids and compared levels with cognitive tests and MRI scans.
    And the study showed higher levels of trans-fats in blood correlates with lower performance and brain shrinkage.

    I agree to this. We can boost our immune system by eating healthy and nutritious foods, but we must not forget to avoid such bad habits like smoking and drinking alcohol, if we drink, we should do it moderately.
