The brain is the most important part of our body. With that said, it is therefore absolutely essential that it gets the proper food intake to function at maximum efficiency.
These are the best foods that you can eat to increase your brain functions:
1 – Spinach. The nutrients found in spinach are proven to be beneficial in mental and physical capabilities! The green leaves are rich in chlorophyll which is beneficial to the health of your blood. Established brands sell tablets of it for $30 per kilogram! This is because our blood is so integral to our health. There’s a reason that blood tests are one of the most effective measures for discovering issues. If that doesn’t convince you, approximately one fifth of the blood in our whole bodies used by our brains. For these reasons it is a great booster cognitively, and not only that! It also slows down the ageing of your brain by about a decade and is a known preventative in the development of diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
2 – Blueberries are commonly referred as memory power-ups. They are great for protecting you from oxidative stress and also prevents mental illnesses like dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. They prevent memory decline and are a great way of boosting your brainpower. It is recommended that you eat at least one cup of blueberries everyday, however scientific reviews have found that even a couple each day causes significant long-term benefits.
3 – Avocados are extremely underrated in regards to their improvement of brain functions. 10% of an avocado is made up of monounsaturated fat (otherwise known as “good” fat) which helps to optimise blood flow and lower blood pressure. With this healthy blood flow, the brain is efficiently and effectively supplied with the nutrients that it needs. Avocados are also great for your skin and a regular intake of avocados results in great quality skin until old age.
These are some everyday, accessible foods for boosting brain functions. Combine these with nuts, seeds and salmon for a beautiful meal which provides you with vitamins, essential fatty acids and more. You are what you eat. So, get ahead of the pack by eating well.
