But since prevention is always easier than treatment, there’s nothing left but to wonder: can we prevent this difficult diagnosis?

Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent dementia entirely; however, there’s plenty we can still do to reduce our risk for this category of illnesses. Most of the recommendations are simple, affordable and even fun, so let’s check them out:

  • Train your mind by playing memory games, strategy games, puzzles, chess or any other game you and your loved ones are into!
  • Read at least a few pages of whatever lecture you enjoy the most; whether it’s newspapers or SF novels, this is a great exercise for your brain.
  • Stay active by doing at least 30 minutes of physical activity every single day; this can include walking, jogging, cycling, hiking or anything you enjoy doing most.

Additionally, you can also adapt your diet as specialist found there are certain nutrients and foods that boost your brain health and immune system.

Aside from avoiding (or stopping) any unhealthy habits such as alcohol consumption or smoking, the following foods can reduce your risk of dementia:

  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Whole grains
  • Omega-3 fatty acids (found in fatty fish like salmon or nuts)

Specialists at Mayo Clinic have found that vitamin D is particularly beneficial in reducing your risk of Alzheimer’s, as well as other types of dementia. You can also see more reasons why this vitamin might be the holy grail of immunity in my post right here.
