Chicago, IL (Merxwire) – As human life expectancy increases year by year, more and more people suffer from degenerative diseases and cardiovascular diseases. In order to enjoy a quality life in their old age, many people begin to pursue the secret of maintaining health. They begin to exercise, hoping to delay the aging process. In addition to exercising, people have also started to change their diet to maintain their health.

The eating habits of modern people are mostly oily, sugary, and meaty, with fewer fruits and vegetables. These eating habits lead to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and the body degenerates earlier. Experts advocate healthy fat intake and a balanced diet. Therefore, the Mediterranean Diet and the DASH Diet have emerged. In recent years, these diets have extended the Mind Diet.

To understand Mind Diet, you must first know Mediterranean Diet and DASH Diet.

Mediterranean Diet: The Mediterranean Diet is a traditional diet in countries around the Mediterranean (Spain, Italy, Greece, etc.), and it is also a diet recommended by many nutrition experts. The main emphasis is on olive oil, legumes, grains, fruits, vegetables, moderate amounts of fish, dairy products, red wine, and a small amount of meat.

DASH Diet: DASH stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, a diet method published by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) in 1997. Mainly emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat foods while limiting the intake of high-sugar foods, beverages, red meat, and fat.

Mind Diet: Mind stands for Mediterranean-DASH diet intervention for neurodegenerative Delay. Emphasize natural foods, primarily advocate eating berries and green leafy vegetables, and limit the intake of animal foods and high-saturated fat foods. In recent years, more and more people have chosen Mind Diet to maintain their health.

According to a study by the nutritional epidemiologist Martha Clare Morris of Rush University, people who “strictly follow” the Mind Diet have a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease by more than half. On the other hand, people who tend to Mind Diet have a slower rate of cognitive decline, and their brains are younger than their peers. 

In order to have a healthy old age, in addition to maintaining exercise and good eating habits, sleep is also very important. Scientists have found that older adults who sleep less than 5.5 hours or more than 7.5 hours a night have reduced cognitive abilities, and proper sleep duration can help maintain the brain’s cognitive function.  Sleep time affects human health and memory, adjust your work and rest to get proper sleep time. From now on, focus on exercise, diet, and sleep!
