You may have heard the expression: “You are what you eat.” This rings true when it comes to keeping your brain sharp. As you age, eating a healthy diet helps to keep your brain as healthy as possible. It can also improve your brain’s ability to sustain long-term health and fight illnesses.

A healthy brain begins with a healthy heart. Eating a nutritious diet can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. But did you know that it could also reduce your risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease? A healthy diet helps your brain
function at its best and slows down memory loss.

Your brain is one of your most vital organs. It plays a role in your every action and every thought, and just like the rest of your body, it needs to be taken care of.

The Alzheimer Society of Ontario is pleased to share a helpful tip sheet to help keep your mind sharp and lower your risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
