Washington: A new study by researchers at Temple University has shown that patients in the early to moderate stages of Alzheimer’s disease could have their cognitive impairment slowed or even reversed by switching to a healthier diet. In a previous study, researchers led by Domenico Pratico, an associate professor of pharmacology in Temple’s School of Medicine, demonstrated that a diet rich in methionine could increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Methionine is an amino acid typically found in red meats, fish, beans, eggs, garlic, lentils, onions, yogurt and seeds.
"This combination won’t cure you, but we believe, as we saw in this study, that it will be able to slow down or even possibly reverse the effects on the cognitive impairment," he said. The study has been published in the Journal of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. ANI
