Scientists have long proven that worse physical aging there can only be aging brain. American researchers have noticed that chicken and eggs are capable of postponing this process a little due to the content of substances in these products. choline. Particular attention should be paid to such a recommendation for the elderly: this will also help to avoid the onset atherosclerosis.
Choline is a substance that contains vitamins Group B. It was investigated in detail as a result of many years of experiments, the essence of which was to identify the effects of food on the human body. This substance is called vitamin b4. The authors of the study noticed that people who received this vitamin in excess performed various tests related to intellectual abilities much better than other people whose diet was not saturated with them. Also, in the first group, there were practically no changes in the brain that are characteristic of senile dementia.
Another interesting study was conducted by scientists from Boston. They interviewed about one and a half thousand people from middle to old age regarding their taste preferences and diet, and also gave them tests that would assess mental abilities and memory. After five years, testing was again offered to this group.
As a result, experts found that those subjects who have high choline concentrations in their blood showed the best results. MRI also showed a positive result: an adequate level of B4 reduced the changes in the brain inherent senile dementia. In addition to chicken and eggs, choline is found in high concentrations in legumes and fish.
