Abstract
Dementia is untreatable, so dietary modification may be the best strategy for prevention. Paradoxically, the typical American diet increases dementia risk and worsens cognition. The purpose of this prospective, single-arm, six-week, study was to explore the effects of a nutrient-dense, brain-targeted beverage on cognitive function. Seven individuals (86% females; 59 ± 6 years) consumed two of the beverages daily. All summary measures of the Cognitive Failure Questionnaire improved after 3 weeks, and again more at week 6. Most (67%) of the quality of life questions improved. An easy-to-prepare beverage containing nutrients shown to support the brain helps improve cognition.
