Quick Summary

In this meta-analysis of observational studies, higher intakes of flavonoids (a class of polyphenols) were associated with a reduced risk of mild cognitive impairment/dementia.

What was studied?

Whether the dietary intake of flavonoids (a class of polyphenols) is associated with cognitive impairment (either mild cognitive impairment or dementia).

Additional analyses were conducted to determine whether cognitive impairment/dementia was associated with the intake of specific flavonoids, including anthocyanins, proanthocyanidins, flavones, flavan-3-ols, flavonols, flavanones, and isoflavones.
