Evidence suggests both the DASH Diet and a Mediterranean-type dietary pattern have significant brain benefits. A dietary pattern that combines the best of both of these may be even more protective.

The MIND diet emphasizes green leafy vegetables, berries and olive oil—each rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
