This study will examine whether drinking pomegranate juice daily for 1 year will benefit cognitive abilities in middle-aged and older adults without dementia. Researchers predict that participants who drink pomegranate juice will show better cognitive performance than those who drink a placebo.

Accepts Healthy Volunteers
Participants will be randomly assigned to one of two groups: a treatment group that drinks 8 oz. (1 cup) of pomegranate juice daily for 1 year or a control group that drinks a placebo. All participants will undergo an initial clinical assessment, a magnetic resonance imaging scan of the brain, and a blood test to determine genetic risk and rule out other neurodegenerative disorders linked to memory complaints. Cognitive performance will be measured at 1, 6, and 12 months. The investigators believe that changes in cognition will vary according to a genetic risk for Alzheimer's.
