Boost Your Brain Power With These Foods...
A healthy brain is something we all need! Whether you are a student or not, you still need to keep those thinking powers strong and increase sharpness and retainability! So you can keep healthy, exercise well and fell great! What you eat plays a large role in this. Here is a list of foods to try out to keep your wits about you and to sharpen up the old thinking cap!
1. EAT SAGE TO IMPROVE YOUR MEMORY
Sage is a flavorful herb that many of us don’t consume much of. Try incorporating more into your diet, especially if you need to focus on improving memory skills! You can even reach for sage essential oil and diffuse it into a room to reap the benefits if you aren’t inclined to ingest sage.
2. MUNCH ON NUTS
Nuts are yummy, easy to pack, and pretty much all of them have some sort of health benefit. But they all prevent cognitive decline, since nuts are high in vitamin E. I like almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, but reach for whatever strikes your fancy!
3. HAVE SOME FISH FOR YOUR HEALTHY HEART AND JOINTS
4. PUMPKIN SEEDS TO INCREASE YOUR THINKING POWER
5. TRY CHICKPEAS TO DECREASE STRESS LEVELS
Our bodies need magnesium. Magnesium is very beneficial for brain cell reception, and also relaxes blood vessels allowing blood flow to feed our brains! The average American diet is quite deficient in magnesium because it is found in unlikely or unpopular foods. Chickpeas are a great source of magnesium, so chomp away for decreased stress levels and better brain reception!
6. EAT BLUEBERRIES TO IMPROVE YOUR LEARNING SKILLS
You’ve probably been told before that blueberries are good for you, but do you know why? Blueberries are stuffed full of antioxidants. These are what we need to help us focus and retain information! Antioxidants are also great for your immune system, obviously if you are sick you won’t be able to focus as well as you can when your health is up to par!
7. RED MEAT TO ENCOURAGE OVERALL BRAIN HEALTH
Red meat is very high in vitamin B12, which is an essential vitamin for brain health and development! In addition, there is a lot of iron found in red meat, which is necessary for healthy blood pressure and energy. Since we need a healthy blood flow to our brain, you can see how red meat has lots of components to boost overall brain health!
If you are an expectant mother, or trying to conceive, you almost can’t eat too much of these foods listed above! Your baby will benefit in brain development from all the goodness contained in these delicious brainpower-boosting foods. I hope this list has been helpful and inspiring! As always, thanks for reading, stalkers!
Keep Healthy! See you in the ballet studio!
