Chicken and eggs can boost memory function
New York: Including eggs and chicken in one’s diet may help boost memory, a new study has found.
This is because the essential nutrient ‘choline’ found in eggs may sharpen aging brains, the report said.
Rhoda Au and her team of researchers from Boston University School of Medicine performed the long-term health study on 1,400 adults, spanning 10 years, New York Daily News reported.
They found that those participants who ate diets packed with plenty of choline, an essential nutrient found in eggs, performed better in memory tests and were less likely to acquire brain changes associated with dementia than those who consumed less choline in their diets.
Other foods high in choline include legumes like soy and kidney beans, saltwater fish, liver and milk, according to Australian news website ninemsn.
According to The Huffington Post UK, Au said that “no one nutrient is a magic bullet against demetia”.
