Nutrition can have a substantial impact when it comes to boosting our brainpower. Eating the right foods can significantly improve your cognitive function, including memory, decision-making ability, mental response time and mood.
12 All-Star Brainpower Foods
Blueberries – Blueberries are rich in antioxidants that protect brain cells from oxidative damage, reduce inflammation, and clear toxic proteins that accumulate with age
Kale – Dark leafy greens, such as kale and spinach, are full of vitamin E, another important antioxidant that has been shown to slow cognitive decline in older adults.
Beets – Root vegetables are rich in nitrates, which can dilate blood vessels to allow more oxygenated blood to reach the brain.
Salmon – The brain is the fattiest organ in the body, and foods rich in omega 3, such as fatty fish, help lower triglyceride levels and blood pressure, thereby keeping blood vessels healthy and brain cells flexible.
Barley and chickpeas – Whole grains and legumes like barley and chickpeas provide the brain with a slow, sustained release of glucose. They’re also rich in folic acid, which has been shown to boost memory.
Extra virgin olive oil – When consumed in moderation and in place of saturated and trans fats, healthy monounsaturated fats can improve memory by helping to optimize blood cholesterol levels.
Eggs and chicken – Eggs and chicken contain a B vitamin necessary to produce a neurotransmitter that boosts memory and communication among brain cells.
Sesame seeds – Sesame seeds are rich in tyrosine, which is needed to produce dopamine – a neurotransmitter that keeps the brain alert and memory sharp.
Rosemary and mint – These herbs have been shown to increase blood flow to the brain, which can improve concentration and memory.
Remember, what’s good for your body also tends to be good for your brain!
