Perhaps not everyone knows that Gorgonzola Dop, along with blue cheeses, peas, soybeans and corn, is among the foods that could help prevent Alzheimer’s, whose World Alzheimer’s Day falls on September 21, a disease characterized by the progressive destruction of brain nerve cells. This is said by research conducted by Israel’s Weizmann Institute published a few years ago in the scientific journal Cell Metabolism, according to which spermidine, being Gorgonzola naturally rich of, is part of the family of polyamines, responsible for cell growth and proliferation. Of course, dementia cannot be “cured” at the dinner table, but scientific research is increasingly pointing to the fact that a diet based on a few healthy, minimally processed foods, constant physical activity and a life rich in stimulation can have positive effects on longevity.
