Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia worldwide, with the disease burden expected to rise as the population ages.
No pharmacological therapy is currently available to cure or prevent AD. Nonetheless, recent research suggests that nutritional and lifestyle modifications might help delay or even prevent the onset of AD, especially when instituted prior to substantial neuronal loss.
This article reviews proposed nutritional interventions for AD prevention that focus on adopting dietary patterns and improvement of macro- and micronutrient distribution or intakes, improvement of insulin resistance, correction of dyslipidemia, and reduction of oxidative stress.
