Question: Wondering about dementia as we get older. Are there natural foods, etc., that may either delay or prevent such? As we get older, I see people with this disease and it is a bit scary!

Thank you

Brief Answer:
Ginkgo biloba may be helpful

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome and thanks for your query.
I understand your concern.
You are unlikely to have Alzheimer's disease.
As one gets older there would be some decrease in the blood flow to certain areas of the brain and decrease in the function of the nerve cells.
Ginkgo biloba may help improve the blood flow and brain function and prevent memory loss to some extent.
Take care
