In the aging groups where the subjects consumed the highest amount of vegetables and fruits, their scores were higher than the other seniors. Another compelling aspect of the study found that the individuals who snacked on fruit or vegetable were more astute had a high propensity for maintaining their memory faculties.

The findings of the study demonstrated that ample volumes of fruit and vegetables may is not only beneficial for the body but in maintaining the powers of the brain.

Another clinical trial conducted at Utah State University assessed elderly men and women's consumption habits. Individuals who ate ample amounts of apples, pears, spinach, and broccoli, showed better memory capacities than those who did not include these fruits and vegetables and others in their diet.

According to the lead researcher of the study, Dr. Wengren deducted that a higher intake of fruits and vegetables may serve as protecting agents against memory loss in aging adults.

In previous laboratory trials, daily intake of vitamin E and C supplements reduced the susceptibility to acquiring Alzheimer's Disease.
