Healthy Diet of Fish and Vegetables Reduces Risk of Dementia
A second study examined the effects of beta-carotene supplements over the course of 18 years. Beta-carotine is a chemical that give carrots their color and is believed to have anti-oxidant properties. Researchers observed 4,000 volunteers who took either a beta-carotene pill or a "placebo" pill with no active ingredients on alternating days.
The volunteers who took the beta-carotene pill scored significantly higher on verbal memory tests than the placebo group. Many experts suggest that anti-oxidants can slow down damage to the body's cells- which can naturally accumulate over a person's lifetime.Disclaimer
