The cause of dementia is oxidative stress. In today life we actually in a very stressful condition which increases stress in our body.
Oxidative stress till certain limited can safe, but if it exceeds its limit, then it starts harming our body cells.
Due to increase in oxidative stress, there is the production of free radicals.
Free radicals are highly active inflammatory particles that destroy the normal cells. Same way it also destroys the brain cell.
With the increase in damage of brain cell, ageing of the brain is stimulated. So the real damage of brain cells is due to free radicals.
Fight Free Radicals
You are safe from dementia if you eat nutrient-rich foods.
Yes! Antioxidants have high potential to neutralize these active free radicals. Thus eating antioxidants rich food prevents damage to the brain.
Among the big list of healthy antioxidants, it is found that eating Vitamin E rich foods can protect from dementia.

During exercise, there is an increase in blood flow towards the brain. These blood flow decreases the plague stored near brain cells thus protecting it from damage.
Also, these plagues are responsible for damage to the brain. When these plaques are removed, there is the normal growth of gray matter, which is neurons of the brain. So the brain can function more efficiently.
In research it was found that exercise increases the brain size by increasing gray matter. While people who were less active had smaller brain size i.e. low gray matter ratio.
So promote healthy brain development and prevent dementia. Everyone should adopt a few minute walk to avoid extreme damage to the brain.
