Drinking orange juice could slash your risk of dementia by 50 per cent as it protects the brain, study finds
Drinking a glass of orange juice every day could significantly lower your risk of getting dementia, a study suggests.
Researchers tracked almost 28,000 men for two decades to examine how their fruit and vegetable consumption affected their brain power.
They found men who drank a small glass of orange juice were 47% less likely to have difficulty remembering, following instructions or navigating familiar areas.
Lapses in memory, understanding and episodes of confusion can be early signs of brain decline which can ultimately lead to life-threatening dementia.
