How to Improve Memory, Prevent Cognitive Decline
Avoid Alzheimer’s Disease and
Other Forms of Dementia
The must-read summary of “Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power,” by Lisa Mosconi, PhD.
Forty-six million people are living with dementia worldwide today, and this number will skyrocket to 132 million by the year 2050. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. No medication or supplement can delay or stop the progression of the disease because treating a patient once clinical symptoms have emerged is too late.
Recent medical research offers us hope. Based on research from multiple specialties, Dr. Lisa Mosconi shows that lifestyle interventions such as dietary choices, weight modification, and physical activity could prevent Alzheimer’s, minimize cognitive decline, improve memory, and maximize brain power.
As the most active organ of the body, the brain has nutritional needs ten times higher than other organs. Most people’s brains are underperforming because they are undernourished. In Brain Food, Dr. Mosconi explains how food affects our cognitive health and offers a complete food plan for optimal brain nourishment.
Eating for your brain not only helps you prevent cognitive decline, but also helps you increase brain vitality, improve memory, cognition, and work performance.

Thanks to advances in medicine and better living standards, our life expectancy has been rising over the last two centuries. But the increase in lifespan may not be additional years of high-quality health. As we age, our body deteriorates, causing many age-related conditions such as hearing loss, blindness, arthritis, respiratory problems, and cancer. The greater concern is that our brain also deteriorates, causing us to lose our memory and cognitive functions, resulting in dementia.
Forty-six million people are living with dementia worldwide today, and this number will skyrocket to 132 million by the year 2050. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease. Other forms of dementia include vascular dementia, Lewy body dementia, and those related to Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease. As people live longer, their chance of getting these disorders is increasing.
Unlike the rest of our body where cells are constantly replaced, most neurons in our brain stay with us for a lifetime, rendering them susceptible to damage. Many factors can damage our brain while we are still young, but we remain oblivious to it. No medication or supplement can delay or stop dementia’s progression because treating a patient once clinical symptoms have emerged is too late.
Recent medical research offers us hope. By using brain imaging techniques, scientists can see how Alzheimer’s develops and progresses in the brain 20-40 years before clinical symptoms emerge. To prevent Alzheimer’s, we must identify patients whose brains are silently fighting off the disease and start preventative treatments.
