Washington, Nov 23 (PTI) People who eat or drink more foods with antioxidant flavonols, found in several fruits, vegetables, tea and wine, may have a slower rate of memory decline, according to a study.

Flavonols are a type of flavonoid, a group of phytochemicals found in plant pigments known for its beneficial effects on health.

"It's exciting that our study shows making specific diet choices may lead to a slower rate of cognitive decline," said study author Thomas M. Holland of Rush University Medical Centre in Chicago, US.
