A serving equalled about 100g of cooked spinach, kale or collard greens such as cabbage or sprouts, or about 200g of lettuce salad.

Nevertheless, Dr Sara Imarisio, the charity's head of research, says in an emailed statement: "Fruits and vegetables are a key component of a nutritionally balanced diet, but figures suggest that many of us struggle to eat our 5-a-day".

Green vegetables are loaded with powerful antioxidants that provide numerous benefits to all parts of the body, including brain function and mental agility into older age.

They found that peole who ate at least one serving of leafy green veg a day showed the equivalent of being 11 years younger, cognitively speaking.

Trump says senator 'would do anything' for cash
In fact, Gillibrand's acquisition of a mocking nickname might be a sign that Trump views her as a long-term political threat. He sent the post after Gillibrand called for the president to resign due to allegations of sexual misconduct.

The study was published today in the online issue of the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Green leafy vegetables slow the ageing of the brain and help to preserve memory and other cognitive functions, United States researchers at the Medical Center of Rush University said in an article published on Neurology journal. The group which ate the most servings averaged 1.3 servings per day, while the group with the fewest servings ate on average 0.1 servings per day.

The participants of the study completed food frequency questionnaires, which enquired about how often they ate certain foods in the past years. This is one of the most feared aspects of aging, however, the study has stated that the condition can be staved off in some people if they incorporate a significant amount of green vegetables in their diet. As well as helping to support our overall physical health, this research adds to evidence of a link between a diet rich in vegetables and a healthy brain.

However, Morris' study was observational, meaning there's only a correlation-nothing concrete-between how greens affect your brain.
