From your 50s, you begin to worry about shrinkage...
Your muscles begin to lose firmness, your eyesight wanes and your libido takes a dive...
But there's one other area of your body you want to try prevent shrinkage in - your brain!
Because shrinkage in the brain is associated with cognitive decline - and even dementia.
Find out more about an important study that shows what you eat has a lot to do with a shrinking brain...
What some foods can do to your brain...
The study, published in the medical journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia,
showed that inflammatory foods cause inflammation in the brain, and this in turn leads to the loss of grey matter...
They quite literally shrink your brain!
But there's more...
Inflammatory foods also damage the blood vessels in the brain - so now we're talking brain damage too.
The result: gradual cognitive decline
and eventually dementia
Wondering which foods are inflammatory?
* Refined carbohydrates (those that include white flour which has been stripped of all nourishment)
* Fried foods high in trans fats
* Fizzy drinks which contain high fructose corn syrup
* Processed meats
* And unhealthy saturated fats, like margarine
These foods are also implicated in high blood sugar
, high blood pressure
and elevated cholesterol.

If you follow the Mediterranean diet - you can reduce inflammation and preserve your brain, as well as avoid chronic illness.
This diet is made up mainly of vegetables and fruit, and healthy fats like olive oil, avocados, cheese, eggs, fish, nuts and seeds.
It doesn't require you to give up meat - but you should reduce your intake of red meat as it does also play a role in systemic inflammation.
Change the way you eat to safeguard your brain and your health - and don't forget to exercise!
