AN apple a day may keep the doctor away but walnuts could stop you losing your mind.
US scientists have found that this healthy natural food – plentiful in Andalucia – has a ‘significant impact’ on boosting the memory.
It’s not such a nutty idea, as the latest findings add to existing research which suggests walnuts may slow or prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s.
The study, led by Dr Lenore Arab, found that adults who eat 13 grams of walnuts a day perform better in cognitive tests, regardless of their age, gender or ethnicity.
“It isn’t every day that research results offer such simple advice to help improve your cognitive health,” Dr Arab said.
