1. Think before your drink!
The more alcohol people consume, the smaller their brain volume. This link is even stronger in women. Most magazines and health care providers would recommend to have no more than two standard drinks a day. My personal advise – do not drink at all or drink on special occasions only. I know this sounds harsh and almost impossible to do, but try, and your skin and your body will say a big “thank you” to you in the future.
2. Consume vitamin E-rich foods.
In a number of researches, it has been found that people who consume a lot of foods rich in vitamin E are less likely to develop dementia. So stock up on such foods as almonds, sunflower seeds, olive oil and spinach.
3. Don’t avoid sunshine
Only a few minutes of sun a day will give you enough vitamin D, which is very important for brain health. People deficient in vitamin D are very likely to develop memory decline when they get older. Avoid peak UV periods, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
