Question of the Month: What foods can help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease?

Foods rich in B vitamins (such as folate, B6, and B12) can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Folate is abundant in spinach, broccoli, legumes, orange juice, walnuts, and asparagus. B6 is plentiful in whole grains, soy foods, peanuts, walnuts, bananas, and avocados. For B12, try fortified cereals and plant milks (soy, rice, and almond milk). The daily recommendation for B12 is 2.4 micrograms per day. Adults often supplement B12, which is a good idea for anyone over 50 years old.

For more information on how to care for AD patients, visit the Alzheimer’s Association at ALZ.org.
