Those participants who ate diets packed with plenty of choline performed better in memory tests and were less likely to acquire brain changes associated with dementia than those who consumed less choline in their diets.

Other foods high in choline include legumes such as soy and kidney beads, saltwater fish, liver and milk, according to Australian news website ninemsn. However, Au noted that “No one nutrient is a magic bullet against dementia”, according to The Huffington Post UK.

Some studies have also shown that eating fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids could help slow the typical cognitive decline that comes with age. In addition, according to a 2010 study, tea drinker did better on tests of memory and information processing than non-tea drinkers did.
