Researchers at Al Maarefa University in Saudi Arabia have found that vitamin K found in foods such as broccoli, spinach, and watercress can protect against the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia. The study was presented at the American Anatomy Society, which was held this month in the United States.
“Vitamin K2 has shown a very promising effect in preventing age-related behavioral, functional, biochemical and histological changes in the aging brain. It can be proposed as a promising approach to alleviate age-related disorders and preserve cognitive functions in the elderly,” said researcher Mohamed El-Sherbiny.
Preliminary studies have already revealed the link between consumption of foods rich in vitamin K and proper brain functioning, and the new study outlines some of the biological pathways through which nutrients appear to maintain cognitive function.
