Dietitian Lists 6 Brain-Harming Drinks

Fearing dementia in your golden years? If your family has Alzheimer's or another dementia, you're not alone. Dementia isn't inevitable. Healthy eating and drinking can lower risk, according to more research.

Drinks and brain health: how?

To prevent dementia, you should watch what you eat and drink, exercise regularly, avoid tobacco, and maintain a healthy weight. Drinking affects your brain, weight, and overall health. Added sugars come from certain beverages. Sugary beverages contribute nearly 50% of added sugar to the U.S. diet, according to the American Heart Association.

Sugary Beverages

According to a 2017 report from the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics, nearly half of adults drink sugar-sweetened beverages like soda, fruit-flavored drinks, sports drinks, horchata, and others daily. 150 calories or 37 grammes of fast-absorbing sugar per day. AHA limits added sugars to 36 grammes per 150 calories for men and 25 grammes per 100 calories for women.


. Three large human population studies found that high saturated fat intakes doubled the risk of Alzheimer's disease, while unsaturated fat diets lowered it. McDonald's medium chocolate shake has 650 calories, 85 grammes (21 teaspoons) of added sugar, and 11 grammes of saturated fat—more than half the daily recommended amount.

Specialty Coffee Drinks

Many coffee drinkers prefer sweetened coffee and tea, but drinking them without sugar can boost your antioxidant and plant-based nutrient intake. Specialty coffee drinks from your favourite coffeehouse may contain surprising amounts of added sugar and saturated fat.

Sports Drinks

Because they're marketed as healthier soda alternatives, these drinks can be sneaky. Sports drinks are important for top athletes and endurance events, but most weekend warriors can drink water or calorie-free electrolyte replacement tabs instead.

Recovery Drinks

Calorie-rich and simple carbohydrate-based, they're bad for brain health. Endurox R4 Recovery Smoothie has 280 calories and 39 grammes (10 teaspoons) of added sugar. These drinks are unnecessary unless you are a serious athlete who struggles to maintain weight.
