Memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s, which accounts for two thirds of dementia, are not conditions you suddenly get, like an infection. They are not the natural consequence of ageing nor are they genetic.
It is possible to identify your risk factors – most of which are under your control – and show you how to protect your brain function. The sooner you start the better, because the subtlest cognitive decline can start 40 years before a diagnosis – but it is never too late.
What’s more, by measuring your cognitive function right now you can track improvement as you make positive changes. Our COGNITIVE FUNCTION TEST is the first-ever free, validated, digital version of what gets measured in memory clinics.
It takes 15 minutes to complete, and must be done without interruptions and on a screen no smaller than a tablet or computer – not a phone.
There are also a few simple questions to answer to help us guide you in key steps to dementia-proof your diet and lifestyle, based on recommendations from a consortium of over 100 experts and a review of 396 studies to date.
Take the test now, not only to help yourself, but to help us research what really prevents cognitive decline. Over 360,000 people have taken the test. Independent research by University College London and the North East NHS Foundation Trust, published in the European Journal of Psychiatry reports that nine in ten (88%) find it useful in ‘understanding how to be proactive in maintaining healthy cognitive function’.

Why not become one of these people yourself and learn how to optimise your brain function and memory to reduce your risk of losing it later in life. Don’t wait until it is too late.
Help us find the risk factors and how to reduce them. Support Food for the Brain by making a one-off or monthly donation. That’s the aim of our Alzheimer’s Prevention Project, now tracking over 350,000 people who have taken the Cognitive Function Test.
