Smart Nutrients provide a detailed account of the most important break-through nutrients currently being hypothesized. These nutrients include niacin and Vitamin C, as well as minerals such as Zinc, Chromium and many others – each of which play a crucial role in the maintenance of mental health and the treatment of specific diseases. The prevalence of the dementia in developing countries was to be between 5-100% among geriatric population. Dementia is a clinical state in which acquired cognitive impairment produces dysfunctions in a person’s occupational and social life. It was established that nutritional factor also contributes to increase this problem that is why it may be termed as “nutritional disorder dementia” among elderly. This paper aimed to assess the role of healthy diet including smart nutrients controlling nutritional disorder dementia among elderly. The validation cohert n=50 (Intervention Group) and n=10 (Control Group). The main finding of the paper was an intervention of healthy diet including smart nutrients containing ground nut and Citrus fruits among elderly subject (just retired from government jobs). It was observed that after intervention dementia patient those were malnourished become healthy and cured/controlled 64% patients, after a duration of six months. The calculated value of Chi-square was found much higher (16.4) as compared to table value at one degree of freedom (3.841) and five percent significant level. Therefore, null hypothesis rejected and alternate hypothesis accepted i.e. healthy dietary intake including smart nutrient containing peanut and vitamin C, controlling nutritional disorder dementia among geriatrics.
