Nutritional strategies for cognitive decline

Date: October 25, 2016
Time: All-day

Nutrition is a key factor in the onset and progression of cognitive decline, yet despite a growing pool of research, little evidence exists to support the efficacy of single nutrients in this complex area. The most promising evidence comes from specific dietary patterns and nutrients in the prevention and slowed progression of neurodegenerative disease. During this webinar, Dr Bailey will focus on the synergistic role of key nutrients involved in the mechanisms that drive cognitive decline and support healthy brain aging. Topics include:

  • Risk factors for cognitive decline
  • Biological mechanisms underpinning cognitive decline
  • Dietary patterns that offer protection and support against cognitive decline
  • The role of specific nutrients in protecting brain health and function
  • Nutritional recommendations for healthy brain ageing
