Do you know a healthy and balanced diet linked to superior brain health?

A recent study have uncovered a significant connection between dietary choices and brain health.

The study, published in Nature, analyzed the data of 181,990 participants from the UK Biobank, sheds light on how what we eat influences not only our physical well-being but also our cognitive function and mental well-being.

Using machine learning technology, the researchers categorized the food preferences of participants into 10 groups (such as alcohol, fruits and meats).

Researchers found that a healthy, balanced diet was associated with superior brain health, cognitive function, and mental well-being.

However, participants who followed a varied and nutritious diet showed higher levels of grey matter in the brain, which is linked to intelligence.

Lead Author Professor Jianfeng Feng, University of Warwick, emphasised the importance of establishing healthy food preferences early in life. He said, “Developing a healthy balanced diet from an early age is crucial for healthy growth.

Prof Feng further added, “To foster the development of a healthy balanced diet, both families and schools should offer a diverse range of nutritious meals and cultivate an environment that supports their physical and mental health.”

Meanwhile, the study also highlighted the need for gradual dietary modifications, particularly for individuals accustomed to unhealthy foods.

Additionally, by slowly reducing sugar and fat intake over time, individuals may naturally gravitate towards healthier choices.
