The Truth About Low-Protein, High-Carb Diets and Brain Aging

From Dr Georgia Edes:

“A new study conducted at the University of Sydney and published in the journal Cell Reports is inspiring headlines around the world, like this one: “Low-protein, high-carb diet may help ward off dementia”

In the study, scientists compared diets containing different amounts of protein and carbohydrate to a low-calorie diet. Their results suggested that diets lower in protein and higher in carbohydrate may, in some cases, provide subtle brain benefits similar to the benefits seen with calorie restriction. The researchers concluded, “A very low-protein, high-carbohydrate diet may be a feasible nutritional intervention to delay brain aging.”
