Women Who Follow The DASH Diet Are Less Likely To Experience Neurocognitive Disorders

SOURCE– There will be about 6.5 million Americans diagnosed with neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s in 2022, and that number is expected to double by the year 2060.

According to a study conducted by the NYU Grossman School of Medicine, women in their midlife who follow a diet that is designed to lower their blood pressure, for example, the DASH diet or Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension, are less likely to have neurocognitive disorders as time passes.

The questions asked of the participants in the research study centered on mild cognitive impairment, which can lead to more serious neurocognitive disorders such as Alzheimer’s. In the research study, one-third of the participants reported having more than one cognitive issue.

According to the study, those who followed the DASH diet were 17% less likely to report more than one cognitive complaint that led to any neurocognitive disorders.

According to US News, one of the lead authors of the study, Yixiao Song, said that it is important to begin a healthy diet in midlife to prevent any neurocognitive disorders from happening. Fen Wu, who co-led the study, also stated that following the DASH diet won’t only prevent women in their midlife from having high blood pressure, but it will also prevent them from having any neurocognitive disorders decades later.
