Diet and Exercise

A good Mediterranean-type diet protects the brain from ageing and can even reverse aspects of ageing in the elderly.

A Mediterranean diet includes olive oil in the diet, red wine, and very little red meat.

  • Red wine has polyphenols that directly activate SIRT1.
  • Olive oil has oleic acid, which is also found in avocados and can also directly activate the enzyme.
  • Low levels of protein and a plant-based diet.

The Mediterranean diet mimics adversity. Your body has to work a bit harder to get everything it needs. 

Aerobic exercise and walking improve cognition, particularly as we age.
