Such use has proven the experiment, which was attended by 60 people.
Researchers in one voice say that the foods high in lutein have a positive effect on human intelligence. According To Clutch.
Lutein is a pigment from the group of carotenoids, which gives the yellow, red and orange hues to fruits and vegetables.
Lutein may also play an important role in brain health and may help prevent cognitive decline. The middle-aged people with higher levels of lutein neural response occurs in both young, unlike those who have lower levels of lutein.
“Lutein increases the thickness of gray matter in parahippocampal the cortex that correlates with higher intelligence,” stated the scientists of the University of Illinois.
Also lutein are well known for their ability to improve eyesight. It helps to prevent age-related eye diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration which is the leading cause of blindness in the elderly.
As scientists assure, the brain of the people, in the daily diet which contains a large number of foods with lutein, such as spinach, Kale, avocado, eggs, shows higher neural activity.
This was proved by the experiment, which was attended by 60 people from 25 to 45 years. So, volunteers were divided into two groups – the first people have received the products with a high content of lutein, and secondly, the participants adhered to their usual diet.
At the end of the test revealed that the volunteers of the first group of neuronal responses occurred faster, and the cognitive brain activity was much better than their peers.
On this basis, scientists have concluded that after 65 years of eating foods with lutein is essential for maintaining the normal functioning of the brain.
