Top Foods To Boost Your Brain

Good nutrition and exercise is the key to well being yet as we get older, our bodies and our minds may not be as sharp as they once were. We go over our top foods to boost your brain and development.

Our first top tip is to Drink Water. Feeling dehydrated can lead to lack of effort, concentration as well as increase the feeling of being tired. That shouldn’t be the only reason to drink the recommended eight cups a day though, it also helps with boosting your immune system, improve skin complexion and is a natural headache remedy.

Our brain requires essential fatty acids to be able to function and help the structure of the brain. Omega 3 Fats are found in oily fish and our favourite is salmon. Not only does Salmon enhance your memory and is high in iron, zinc and folic acid, but it also has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce the risk of heart disease and Alzheimer’s. Other omega 3 fatty foods are walnuts, avocado and tuna.

Eggs are a great source of protein and can help aid good cholesterol, but they also contain choline which can improve memory function. Lean meat is also a great option.

We have all heard the wonders of Antioxidants. They can help with ageing, boost your energy and enhance motor skills. We love Blueberries for this! Eating a handful for afternoon tea, add some to a morning smoothie or to your next muffin batch. Ps. Don’t forget your dark, green leafy vegetables as they are also a great source of antioxidants, folic acid, vitamin b and can also help with the nervous system.
