While there are no effective treatments for dementia, there are some preventative measures that may help. Flavonoids, powerful antioxidants found in plants, can potentially prevent deterioration of brain function. Researchers examined mild subjective cognitive decline (SCD) in 49, 493 women and 27, 842 men over 30+ years. Higher intake of total flavonoids was associated with lower risk of SCD. Foods were ranked according to their potency for this effect. Blueberries, strawberries, apples and oranges were at the top, with potatoes at the bottom of the list.
