Boston-Based Assisted Living Company Launches Innovative Diet and Nutrition Program To Promote Cognitive Health and Lower the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

Boston (September 14, 2009) Excerpts from release: Details About the Memory Preservation Nutrition® program The main foods that are indicated through the Memory Preservation Nutrition® program include fresh fruits and vegetables, especially leafy green vegetables, specific spices, whole grains, and foods containing omega-three fatty acids. The Memory Preservation Nutrition® program also focuses on reducing cholesterol and substituting healthy fats (omega 3 and mono-unsaturated fats) for saturated and Trans fats foods. Another major feature of the program is reducing the amount of refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup in the overall diet. All of the healthy foods featured by the MPN™ in the right combinations provide the body with important disease-fighting antioxidants, nutrients with anti-inflammatory properties and also help to regulate blood sugar. These changes are all important for brain health. Dr. Emerson Lombardo says that diet changes that are made through the Memory Preservation Nutrition® program can benefit people of any age whether or not they have memory loss. She states, “Individuals researching Alzheimer’s disease believe changes and damage in the brain begin well before there are any symptoms of the disease. Following the Memory Preservation Nutrition® program, even if you are not noticing changes to your memory, can be an important step to take to protect your own brain health. The Memory Preservation Nutrition® program becomes even more important for those already experiencing problems. The Memory Preservation Nutrition® works in part by promoting overall body health.  It is never too late to intervene. SLR communities’ talented chefs have done an outstanding job of following Memory Preservation Nutrition® guidelines to create their own new delicious recipes and the residents love the food.” About Senior Living Residences Since 1990, Senior Living Residences of Boston, MA has created service-enriched housing and care options for seniors in New England.
