Chicken, Eggs And Milk May Sharpen Memory
Good news for breakfast advocates! Milk, eggs and chicken may be good for your brain. Georgia James at the Huffington Post has the story:
A diet rich in the nutrient, choline, may help protect your brain from the effects of aging.
The nutrient is prevalent in foods such as chicken, eggs, fish and milk as well as certain legumes such as soy and kidney beans.
Researchers found that those with plenty of choline in their diets performed better in memory tests and were less likely to show brain changes associated with dementia than those with a low choline intake.
The findings suggest that your lifetime diet may have an impact on how your brain ages, said senior researcher, Rhoda Au, of Boston University School of Medicine.
