Protein-rich diet helps Alzheimer’s prevention, according to the recent Australian research performed by a team of scientists from the Edith Cowan University that analyzed the diets of over 500 adult people. The study later determined that those people from the participants who consumed comparatively higher protein rich diets had the lowest forerunner of Alzheimer’s disease i.e. amyloid beta (Aβ) in their brains.

 

Leading researcher, Dr Binosha Fernando from the School of Medical and Health Sciences informed that there is a theory that says an adequate amount of protein consumption helps reduce blood pressure, which is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease as well as Alzheimer’s disease.

Dr Fernando said in a statement that, “The research clearly demonstrates that the more protein eaten the lower the chances someone has of having a high Aβ burden on the brain, which corresponds to a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s in the future.”

A diet which mostly includes the foods such as chicken, lentils, eggs, milk, cheddar cheese, beef, Bluefin tuna and pinto beans can be called as high protein meal, which is potentially helpful for human brain.

The latest research aimed at showing the association between protein-rich diet and Alzheimer’s disease has been disclosed in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, about which Dr Fernando further said that, “The research clearly demonstrates that the more protein eaten the lower the chances someone has of having a high Aβ burden on the brain, which corresponds to a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s in the future.”
