Whole­grains

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Health -

Whole­grains are rich in brain-healthy min­er­als and B vi­ta­mins and a mod­er­ate source of vi­ta­min E. They’re also a great source of fi­bre.

There’s been al­most no sci­en­tific in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the ef­fects of whole­grains or fi­bre on cog­ni­tive de­cline and de­men­tia, but both have been shown to re­duce the risk of de­vel­op­ing ma­jor car­dio­vas­cu­lar risk fac­tors for de­vel­op­ing cog­ni­tive is­sues. Nu­tri­ent-dense whole­grains in­clude brown and wild rice, buck­wheat, bul­gur, corn­meal, farro, mil­let, oats, pop­corn, quinoa and spelt. I sug­gest three serv­ings of whole­grains a day.
