We all know that the greens are good for health, but did you know that it could even reduce your brain age by 11 years?
We all fear to lose our memories or our cognitive abilities as we get older.

A new study finds that Vitamin K in foods like spinach and kale is linked to slower cognitive decline. Most Alzheimer’s disease and dementia patients faces a declining rate of cognitive ability. Increasing their vegetable consumption could potentially help to deter that.

The study was done on 954 adults of an average age of 81 over for about five years. They found that people who have two daily servings of the green leafy vegetable had better cognitive powers than those who ate none.

This is probably due to the nutrients within Vitamin K: Folate, beta-carotene and lutein.
This can help to ward off memory loss and other cognitive abilities with age.
