The featured food item for January is almonds, a hearty healthy, brain boosting all-star!
The Barron County ADRC Beneficial Bites program is featuring brain healthy foods in 2022.
To kick off this year of brain-boosting foods, we start with the almond. While eating almonds has often been related to better heart health, they also may improve your cognitive health. What’s good for the heart is good for the brain right? Vitamin E is the star that stands out in almonds that provides many antioxidant benefits. The good news is that some studies have shown that vitamin E has the potential to help prevent the onset of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. This nut is also fiber packed which also helps keep the heart and brain healthy.
