Have lots of fruits and veggies to keep your memory
by Kim Evans
(NaturalNews) A recent study took a look at 2,533 healthy men and women from 45 to 60 and measured the amount of fruits and vegetables they ate. Then, over a thirteen year period, the researchers compared their fruit and vegetable intake to their cognitive function. In doing so, they found that people, who ate more fruit and vegetables, performed better on verbal memory tests than folks who consumed less. And it's verbal memory that people tend to lose as they age, especially with Alzheimer's disease.
While eating lots of fruits and vegetables didn't appear to affect executive function, which includes planning, problem solving and multi-tasking, it did boost verbal memory, which includes the memory of words and their meanings. Eating lots of fruit, and especially fruit with lots of vitamin C, was linked with better verbal memory too. Eating foods with lots of vitamin E was also.
The researchers didn't find that vegetables, looked at separately, had a relationship between high intake and memory. Therefore, they suggest that the fruit was responsible for the better verbal memory.
In addition to the vitamin C, which protects the brain from free radicals, fruit also tends to be more cleansing for the body. And the less toxicity that's in the body, the less that will end up in the brain.
Another reason an advantage was found in fruit over vegetables may be due to the fact that most people cook their vegetables and not their fruit. And raw foods are more cleansing and nutrient dense than cooked ones.
The high intake participants had, on average, eight servings of fruit and vegetables each day. About half of these servings were fruit.
So, what are some of the best foods to protect your brain?
This, plus other research, points to: green leafy vegetables, berries, mango, grapefruit, oranges, lemons, limes, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, peppers, tomatoes, walnuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, and hazelnuts.
It's easy to make fruit a standard snack or breakfast. It's also easy to make a big salad a regular meal. Even better, top your salad with some crushed nuts too.

Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them.
Here's a little from the upcoming book...
In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters.
A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them."
Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them.
In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old.
In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name.
Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased...
In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean.
