Objective To increase understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying the association, we investigated the individual relations to cognitive decline of the primary nutrients and bioactives in green leafy vegetables, including vitamin K (phylloquinone), lutein, β-carotene, nitrate, folate, kaempferol, and α-tocopherol. Probably not. "The evidence for supplements is not positive, either from observational studies or clinical trials", said the lead author, Martha Clare Morris, a professor of epidemiology at Rush University in Chicago. "When it comes to slowing cognitive decline, [eating leafy vegetables] appears to be one of the most significant behaviors you can adopt", Morris says. Consumption of fresh fruits is better than drinking canned juice. Spinach, kale, lettuce - these leafy greens may not taste as good as holiday treats but new research suggests they may help prevent dementia.
The study found that people who ate at least one serving of green, leafy vegetables a day had a slower rate of decline on tests of memory and thinking skills than people who never or rarely ate these vegetables.

Researchers studied 960 men and women ages 58 to 99 who completed food frequency questionnaires and had two or more cognitive assessments over an average of nearly five years of follow-up. Those who consumed the most ate around 1.3 servings a day and those who consumed the fewest ate around 0.1 servings a day. This difference was equivalent to being 11 years younger in age.
