Just like our bodies require energy and fuel to operate optimally, so does our brain. Certainly a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, healthy fats and animal protein will not only provide you with multitudes of health benefits and but will also boost your memory. Mentioned below are a few nutritional tips that can help to enhance your brainpower.
Enjoy the omega-3s. Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be particularly beneficial for the brain. This healthy fat can be found amply in fish especially cold water fatty fish like halibut, salmon, trout, tuna, mackerel, herring and sardines. Apart from enhancing your brain health, eating fish will also help to reduce your risk of getting Alzheimer. But if you just happened to not like seafood, you can get your omega 3’s from sources such as walnuts, winter squash, kidney beans, pumpkin seeds etc.
Lower you calories and reduce the intake of saturated fat. Research suggest that diets that are high in saturated fat increases one’s risk of developing diseases such as dementia and can also impair your focus levels and memory. Eating excess calories too has its adverse effects on your brain such as the fact that high calories can increase your risk of cognitive impairment.
