Certain Mother’s Diet May Fight Alzheimer’s Disease in Offspring

Mother's diet influences offspring

A new study from the United States finds that certain nutrients in a mother’s diet may reduce the influence of the Alzheimer’s disease on offspring.

For their study, researchers bred mice, genetically predisposed to Alzheimer’s disease from females whose diet was high in choline, a compound similar to B vitamin group which can be found in liver, meat, fish, nuts, spinach, eggs, peas, beans, wheat germ.

Having performed the examination, the scientists discovered that offspring of the females with choline-rich diet showed fewer condition-associated brain changes and improved cognitive performance compared to offspring of non-supplemented mice.

Lead study author Dr. Ramon Velazquez of the Biodesign Institute at ASU comments: “Choline deficits are associated with failure in developing fetuses to fully meet expected milestones like walking and babbling.
