·1 min

There’s new evidence indicating that lifestyle interventions can improve cognitive function in individuals with mild cognitive impairment and early dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease. The effectiveness of these interventions was highlighted in a documentary featuring participants from a trial. Some participants made significant lifestyle changes such as adopting a vegan diet, engaging in daily aerobic exercise, practicing stress reduction, and joining online support groups. While not all participants experienced improvement, some reported life-changing results. Experts encourage people to consider lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and maintain brain health.
