According to the data shared by the Alzheimer's Association of Turkey, 600 thousand families in Turkey are struggling with Alzheimer's disease. While 3 person is diagnosed with dementia every 1 seconds, two-thirds of those diagnosed with dementia develop Alzheimer's. Although mild cognitive changes are considered a natural consequence of aging, cognitive decline or memory problems, especially at early ages, are considered to be directly related to eating habits.
Underlining that increasing the performance of the brain, which regulates the function of all organs, and strengthening its functional ability should be one of the main goals of a healthy and long life, Rawsome Founder Semra İnce said, “Every mother, considering her child's brain development, encourages the consumption of certain foods such as walnuts and green leafy vegetables. Studies show that mothers are right. Because research shows that the foods we consume play a big role in keeping our brain healthy and can improve certain mental tasks such as memory and concentration.
“Brain-friendly foods improve cognitive functions”
Saying that consuming foods containing plenty of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants nourishes the brain and protects it from oxidative stress, Semra İnce listed some brain-friendly foods as follows: For example, leafy green vegetables like spinach and broccoli contain brain-healthy nutrients like vitamin K, lutein, folate and beta-carotene. These foods can slow cognitive decline and keep us fit by protecting our brain. Oily fish is packed with Omega 3 fatty acids, which play a powerful role in sharpening memory and improving mood. Dark chocolate and cocoa powder are packed with brain-boosting compounds, including flavonoids, caffeine, and antioxidants. Moringa bar, which contains dates, quinoa flakes, raw cocoa powder, raw walnuts, cocoa butter, moringa extract, ginkgo extract, Himalayan salt and vanilla, is one of the Rawsome products that supports cognitive development with its brain-friendly foods.”
“Some foods improve our memory performance”
Underlining that there is a lot of research focusing on how adopting a diet full of foods that are good for brain functions can slow down cognitive aging, Rawsome Founder Semra İnce shared some research results: “Turmeric and its active ingredient, curcumin, have strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that help the brain. Studies have shown that turmeric reduces symptoms of depression, anxiety disorder and Alzheimer's disease, improves cognitive functions and memory performance. Our Curcumin bar, which contains dates, quinoa flakes, dried sour cherries, lemon, Vitamin C, turmeric extract and Vitamin B12, has become one of our most preferred products with its brain-friendly rich content.”
“We are proving that healthy eating can also be delicious”
Stating that plant-oriented nutrition has strengthened its place in main meals instead of being an alternative, Semra İnce concluded her words as follows: “The article dated 15, which analyzed 2022 clinical studies examining the effect of vitamin E on cognitive functions, stated that adequate intake of vitamin E prevents cognitive decline, especially in the elderly, dementia and dementia. It shows that it significantly reduces the risk of Alzheimer's disease. Rich in antioxidants that help maintain healthy brain function, nuts are a great source of vitamin E. Nuts rich in Omega 3 fatty acids and especially alphalinolenic acid also help improve memory. While producing Rawsome fruit bars with nuts, we aimed to show that hunger crises can be eliminated with 100 percent natural content snacks rich in healthy fats and foods with high nutritional value. With our new products, we will continue to support the brain-gut axis and show that healthy eating can also be delicious.”
