The elderly are now being urged to eat their greens, with leafy vegetables in your daily diet said to ward off memory loss. US researchers found a daily serving of greens could make the brain function as if it were 11 years younger. A study of adults aged 58 to 99 showed those who regularly ate greens had a slower decline in memory tests and thinking skills. The vegetables have nutrients thought to protect the brain, including vitamins that block the build-up of proteins that lead to Alzheimer’s.
