* Daily: Colorful fruits and veggies - Eat from each of the five color groups ( red, orange/yellow,white,blue/purple and green ) for a a broad spectrum of brain-protective antioxidants. Leafy greens and cruciferous veggies, like broccoli and cauliflower are particularly potent. A study found that women who ate the most of these lowered their brain age by 1 to 2 years. Some research shows that flavonoids antioxidants in apples, grapes, onions, wine, tea and dark chocolate are also brain boosters.

* Frequently: Avocados, olive oil, nuts and sunflower seeds. These are high in antioxidant vitamin E, which is especially effective at staving off Alzheimer's disease. People who ate moderate amounts daily lowered their risk by 67%. Shoot for 15 mg. equal to 2 ounces of almonds.
