Nutrition for the Ageing Brain

4th symposium on "Nutrition for the Ageing Brain: from Mechanisms to Sustainability.

Decline on cognitive abilities with age occurs in healthy individuals and spreads through adult lifespan. The mechanisms contributing to normal ageing, including oxidative stress, neuroinflammation and vascular dysfunction are the same as those contributing to the development of neurological diseases. In pathological conditions these mechanisms become exacerbated, triggered by different factors which might be genetic or environmental. Despite a wealth of data on how nutrients and diets may support cognitive functions and preserve brain health, the therapeutic and pharmacological potential of these natural compounds still remains to be fully translated in humans and in clinical />Until now no major health organisation has given preventive dietary recommendations for preserving brain health and cognition. In addition, it has not been clearly stated that specific nutrients help maintain brain function during />ILSI Europe’s Nutrition & Mental Performance task force embarked on this project in 2014 to review the evidence supporting how nutrients, food and diet influence brain health by organising a series of events on this topic.

These workshops are organised every second year and attract multi-stakeholder experts from different countries. The 4th symposium in this series will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, on 25 and 26 August 2022 and will focus on the following themes:

  • Latest evidence in molecular mechanisms and epidemiological aspects
  • The Gut-Brain Axis: Evidence of targeting the gut for maintaining brain health
  • Sustainable Food Systems
