It may sound utopian, but you may soon be able to keep Alzheimer’s at bay by drinking a “miracle milkshake” everyday, claim scientists.

A team is developing the memory-boosting strawberry shake containing a cocktail of brain nutrients found naturally in breast milk, which it claims would help stave off dementia including Alzheimer’s disease.

The shake could be available within two years. Tests have showed that taken once a day with breakfast, the shake significantly improves short-term memory in those in the early stages of the Alzheimer’s disease.
