Abstract

Nutrition plays a critical role in the definition of the individual’s wellbeing. Nutritional interventions have been repeatedly advocated as of potential interest for preventing or delaying the cognitive decline, also in the context of neurodegenerative conditions. The idea of targeting the initial phases of dementia, when the process is theoretically still amenable of correction, via lifestyle modifications (including healthy diet or supplementation of specific micro-/macro-nutrients) is extremely appealing. In this perspective paper, we describe the most recent evidence on the topic and discuss how the nutritional assessment should be nested within a comprehensive approach to the aging person with initial signs of dementia for promoting his/her optimal management.
