Foods High in Saturated Foods May Worsen Concentration

A new study, published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, finds that after eating foods with a high content of saturated fats, within the next few hours, a person’s ability to concentrate can be lowered.Foods High in Saturated Foods May Worsen Concentration

For the study, the researchers recruited 51 participants each of whom had to take a continuous performance test to identify a baseline of concentration, sustained attention, and reaction. After that, the participants ate two meals which contained either 60 g of saturated fat or sunflower oil which is low in saturated fat.

The analysis of the recorded data showed that those participants who are a meal high in saturated fat performed worse on the continuous performance test compared to those who ate a meal with a low concentration of saturated fat.

Annelise Madison, the lead author of the study and a graduate student in clinical psychology at The Ohio State University, says: “Most prior work looking at the causative effect of the diet has looked over a period of time. And this was just one meal — it’s pretty remarkable that we saw a difference.”
