Brain Boost Diet
Allow your creative juices to flow with these brain foods
Your brain is one of the most important body organs influencing your daily performance. Healthy brain function can be achieved through proper lifestyle, supplementation, and especially diet.
While your brain power decreases with poor lifestyle, it deteriorates fastest through poor diet. Your brain requires sufficient nutrients and vitamins to maintain optimal function.
Your diet has the ability to maintain optimal brain performance. Feed your brain these foods for a creative boost:
Tomatoes are high in lycopene which has been proven to improve cognitive skills by elevating cerebral blood flow to increase brain activity.
Lycopene prevents by-products of your body's consumption of oxygen from damaging cells and causing chronic illnesses. This slows the aging process while helping organs to operate more efficiently.
Avocados supply antioxidants that protect the cognitive function of the brain from free radical damage. They also promote increased blood circulation.
Compounds in blueberries have been proven to reverse short-term memory loss. Blueberries cause neurogenesis - new brain cells production. This process increases the number of cells in the hippocampus, the region of the brain which is responsible for memory.
4. Chicken Breast
In every 3 ounce serving, chicken breast contains 50 milligrams of vitamin B6 (pyridoxine). Vitamin B6 nourishes the brain and improves its function. Lack of vitamin B6 can lead to lethargy and irritability.
Seafoods, particularly prawns, are high in Vitamin D. A severe deficiency of vitamin D can lead to Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia, and depletion of mental capacity.
Fruits like guava, papaya, strawberries, kiwi, cantaloupe, orange, and grapefruit are high in vitamin C content. Vitamin C helps protect the brain from free radical damage. Free radical damage can lead to memory loss and brain dysfunction.
7. Soy sauce
Soy sauce is high in vitamin B3. A daily dose of vitamin B3 helps to neutralize brain toxins and also improves memory by up to 40%.
Mackerel, tuna, and salmon are packed with omega-3 fatty acids which are key components of cellular membrane flexibility and fluidity. They improve cell-to-cell communication. Eat these fishes at least two to three times a week for optimal learning capacity and memory boost.
Walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts are high in vitamin B2, a great brain power and memory booster. Vitamin B2 enhances your levels of intellectual capacity. These nuts also contain vitamin E, an antioxidant which counteracts free radical damage in your body.
10. Egg Yolk
High in choline content, egg yolk boosts your brain's memory center. This maintains flexibility and integrity of your brain's cell membranes.
