Almonds Brain Food

Neelima Chauhan at the University of Illinois-Chicago gave mice with an Alzheimer's-like disease an almond-rich diet. The animals had already developed some of the abnormal brain deposits thought to underlie the disease. After four months, the team gave the mice a memory test.

Animals eating the almond-rich diet did much better than those fed the usual chow.

Chauhan says almonds contain substances that act like cholinesterase inhibitors, drugs used to treat Alzheimer's.

The diet also reduced the number of Alzheimer deposits in the rodent brains.

Mice got that benefit by eating a relatively small amount of almonds — the equivalent of about a handful daily. Almonds may not be able to help people suffering from advanced disease, Chauhan warns. Still there's no harm in adding almonds to a healthy diet. In fact, such a diet may protect against memory loss, she says.
