Abstract:Preventing or postponing the onset of cognitive decline and delaying or slowing its progression would lead to a consequent improvement of health status and quality of life in older age. The diet is considered an important factor of a healthy state but there are debates about what the diet must to cover. Dietary and lifestyle factors play also a central role in the etiology of post-prandial dysmetabolism. Since several dietary factors affect the risk of cardiovascular disease, it can be assumed that they also influence the risk of dementia .Promising non-pharmacologic approaches to the normalization of post-prandial dysmetabolism are evolving. The traditional Mediterranean diet, which is rich in minimally processed natural foods, low in caloric density but high in nutrient density, have been associated with improved CV health and even with the limitation of cognitive decline. We examine the possible role of macronutrients and food nutrients, with a particular focus on the Mediterranean diet in modulating the risk of Alzheimer disease and dementia.
