Your diet can play a role in brain health, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says.

Research has found that foods in a typical Mediterranean diet can lead to better cognitive function, alertness and memory.

The academy suggests adding these foods to your diet:

  • Vegetables, including cruciferous varieties such as broccoli, cabbage and dark leafy greens.
  • Berries and cherries, which provide anthocyanins and other flavonoids.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fatty fish.
  • Walnuts, which have been shown to aid heart heath and cognitive function.
