Proteins, carbohydrates and fats all play a specific role in the body. They provide nutrition pertinent to the development and control of our brain cells and memory functions. Glucose, the sugar found in carbohydrates and starch is also needed in our diets. This provides at least 20% of the body’s energy and is required by the body in order to operate smoothly.
While needed, research has shown that persons who ate a diet high in sugar, are now likely to develop mild cognitive impairment a common symptom seen before Alzheimer’s disease.
Thus in order to preserve our memory, it is wise that as we get older we maintain a good diet of protein and fat, and reduce how much carbohydrates and starch we take in. To learn more about how these can affect us CLICK HERE.
