We’ve all had days when we didn’t feel like we were ‘on our game.’ And as we age, both our bodies and our brains grow old as well. By making smart food choices though, we can preserve our precious gray matter longer and improve brain function.
Here are some of the top choices for quality brain food.
Blueberries have been shown to potentially shield the brain from stress, dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease. Research has also shown that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both learning capacity and motor skills.
Avocados, considered a ‘fatty fruit,’ contribute to healthy blood flow and decreased blood pressure, decreasing the chances of developing hypertension, which can lead to a stroke.
Sources of Omega-3
Deep-water fish, such as salmon, is a wise choice. It’s abundant in omega-3 essential fatty acids, which are essential for healthy brain function.
Sources of Vitamin E
Nuts and seeds are good sources of vitamin E, which is needed by your brain to stave off declining cognitive functions. Cashews, peanuts, walnuts, sunflower and sesame seeds and almonds are all great choices, as well.
Foods to Boost your Brain Function
Whole-grain breads, brown rice, and oatmeal also contribute to a healthy brain by reducing the risk for cardiac disease. By promoting a healthy heart and improved blood flow, the brain is sure to thrive via excellent oxygen and nutrient delivery through the bloodstream. Complex carbohydrates also supply the brain with a steady stream of glucose that enhances brain function. It's important to note, though, that you want to avoid simple carbohydrates that are often found in junk food, because the glucose gives the brain a short-lived sugar high, often followed by a crash that makes you feel hungry and tired. This is one reason for the rise in popularity of low-carb diets such as Atkins, or the Ketogenic diet.
