Various studies on Alzheimer's disease have shown that folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, which promote the degradation of homocystine in the body and brain, can reduce by 55% the risk of Alzheimer's disease and even improve mental abilities.

High levels of folic acid and B vitamins are found in green leafy vegetables, oranges, whole grains, nuts, beans and other legumes. Vitamins E, C and A act against free radicals, which hinder cellular processes. These vitamins protect the membranes and nuclei of the cells. This will also prevent cardiovascular disease and, of course, protect the cerebral vessels, especially to prevent harmful deposits.

These include the antioxidant effects of vitamins A and E in vegetable oils such as wheat germ, corn germ, margarine, soybean, rapeseed, cotton, sesame, coconut, sunflower (with gamma-linoic acid), but also includes eggs, liver, avocados, peanuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, walnuts (5 pieces per day), poultry, sweet almonds, cottage cheese, oatmeal, green olives, cream and soy beans.

Walnuts not only contain a lot of energy but also linoleic acid for the hardening of the arteries. The chestnuts contain a lot of starch, protein building blocks and high quality carbohydrates, especially Gaba, a neurotransmitter level for nerve and muscle function.

Grapefruit contains a number of bioflavonoids. In particular, they act on the cerebral vessels to prevent circulatory disorders, which also allows pectins, which lower cholesterol levels. Paprika contains combinations of antioxidants and anthocyanins, which have a beneficial effect on the cerebral vessels. Capsaicin, a spicy ingredient, which is also part of red pepper and red pepper, promotes the formation of happiness hormones.

Blackcurrant anthocyanins are mainly present in the cerebral vessels and prevent atherosclerosis.
