It’s a combination of two diets already known to reduce risk of heart and circulatory disease:

The Mediterranean diet (based on wholegrains, fish, pulses, fruits and vegetables)

The DASH (Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension) diet. The DASH diet is designed to control blood pressure – a risk factor for heart and circulatory diseases and dementia. It’s similar to the Mediterranean diet, but with a greater emphasis on reducing your salt intake.

“Both diets are backed by lots of research showing they can help your heart health, and some evidence to suggest they can contribute to lower levels of mental decline,” says the BHF.

The MIND diet names 10 foods linked to improved, or delayed decline in, cognitive function, and five foods to limit.
