Green vegetables are full of antioxidants that prevent free radicals. So go for green vegetables like spinach, broccoli, and lettuce. Stabilize the sugar in the diet by avoiding refined carbohydrates like white rice and bread. Go for whole wheat bread, brown rice and oats. 


Vitamin E present in nuts is important to keep the brain cells young. It protects the nerve cells in the brains. Choose healthy vegetable oils and eat a handful of almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts or peanuts, flax seeds and sesame seeds.
