A recent study from Iowa State University has shown that the food you eat can impact your memory and subsequent risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Individuals with high levels of the satiety hormone CCK had a 65% decreased risk of Alzheimer’s disease!
Further research is being conducted into how diet effects CCK and other satiety hormone levels, and their effect on brain function. This research could help distinguish if a certain diet could prevent the disease or progression of the condition.
In summary these researchers have emphasised to keep in mind that what we eat and what our body does with it, affects our brain and subsequent function!
