6 Brain Foods To Eat More Of

 

We talk a lot about eating for your physical health, but it’s also important for us not to forget the mental side of health either. The brain needs nutrients just like our hearts and muscles do too, this helps of course keep our brain healthy and functioning better.

So for that reason today we will be going through together the 6 brain foods to eat more of. Let’s begin!

 

Oily Fish– Is very important EFA’s AKA Essential fatty acids as they cannot be made by our bodies, instead we must eat foods such as oily Fish to get it.

The following oily fish are well recommend Salmon, Tuna, Mackerel & Sardines. The benefits of eating oily Fish and just Omegas in general is fully explained… (Click Here)   

 

Wholegrains– With no energy in us we cannot function at all… that includes our brain too. To really be able to focus and concentrate on anything properly you need energy!

We get this energy in the form of glucose in the blood right to the brain. Making the switch to wholegrains with a low- GI AKA  Glycemic index, which will release glucose very slow into the bloodstream… which is great because it will keep us mentally alert for the whole day.

How do we consume more Wholegrain then?  Simple switch from white to brown Bread, Rice & Pasta. Another way is to eat Wholegrain cereal in the mornings, instead of all that sugary trash that’s just getting you closer to one of many chronic diseases.

 

Blueberries- Are well known to be very high in antioxidants, which for sure help brain health. What you might not know is that it also contains flavonoids, which are compounds that are believed to help improve our memory. It has many more benefits than just brain power you can find out about it here… (Click Here)

 

Broccoli- Packed with vitamin K which helps improve brainpower. I was reading a study and inside it said that there are compounds called Glucosinolates, and what this does is slowly breakdown the neurotransmitter and Acetylcholine (both part of the nervous system) which we need for proper function of our brains. When you have low levels of Acetycholine  this is a bad sign and you most likely have Alzheimer’s disease.

 

 

Eggs- Specifically the yolk is high in vitamin B and Choline nutrient. When we eat Eggs our brains use the Choline to make Acetycholine (get that Egg & broccoli on your plate right now).

 

Spinach- The leafy green is packed with so much Antioxidants that helps protect our brains from harmful free-radicals. When not eating Spinach or green vegetables in general, it has been shown many times to be linked to numerous mental diseases including Parkinson’s & Alzheimer’s disease. Spinach also contains Folate and vitamin B that helps brain health and helps prevent dementia.

 

THAT’S IT!

I really enjoyed sharing this with you guys.  Please do let me know though…

      Store bought 9.9 % of the time no. You’re better of making it your self, check out some recipes online… “Healthy flapjacks”. Just remember if it’s telling you in the ingredients about syrup, chocolate or sugar… It’s a wrap! and not healthy, thank you for your spontaneous question Kelly 🙂
