Lifetime multidomain interventions including nutritional programs appear to be cost-effective and safe strategies to mitigate cognitive decline in older adults. Antioxidant-rich foods (nuts, grapes, cherries) as well as unsaturated fatty acid, polyphenol and vitamin supplementation are thought to improve both biomarker status and cognitive-related outcomes in MCI and AD. Along the same line, the roles of adiposity and physical inactivity in the pathophysiology of the brain in middle life as well as the molecular mechanisms of senescence have attracted a growing interest in the scientific community. New data indicate the complexity and necessity of endogenous/dietary antioxidants for the control of neuron-glia signalling. Recent studies proposed that omega-3 and -6 fatty acids act as mediators for energy metabolism, neural plasticity and memory during aging. These lines of evidence open a highly promising field for future research linking nutrition and clinical neurosciences.
This Special Issue of Nutrients, entitled “Nutrition, Cognition and Brain Integrity”, welcomes the submission of manuscripts either describing original research or reviewing the relevant scientific literature, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
