No matter how old you are, it is never too late to begin eating things that will give you the best chance of avoiding dementia as you age and keeping you focused and sharp every single day.

Dr. Uma Naidoo, nutritional psychiatrist and a faculty member at Harvard Medical School, said that existing research suggests that we may reduce the risk of dementia by avoiding foods that can harm our gut bacteria and impair our memory and focus.

Here are the foods you should try to avoid to fight inflammation and promote a healthy brain:

1). Foods with added sugar

The brain does cellular activities by taking energy from glucose (a type of sugar). But, a high-sugar diet can cause an excess of glucose in the brain, linked to memory problems.
Consuming unhealthy processed foods such as baked goods and soda, often high in refined and added sugars, fills the brain with too much glucose.

According to the American Heart Association recommends, men should not consume more than 36 grams of added sugar per day, and women should stay under 25 grams of added sugar per day

2). Fried Foods

A diet high in fried foods was linked to lower learning and memory scores, as confirmed by one study involving 18,080 people. The most likely reason is that these vices cause inflammation, damaging the blood vessels that supply the brain with oxygen and nutrients.
Another study that looked at the relation of mental health and consumption of fried food on 715 people found that people who ate more fried foods were more likely to be depressed throughout their lives.

So, next time when you are about to put that 5th fried food in your mouth, think twice.
