Foods That Naturally Increase Brain Power

Foods That Naturally Increase Brain Power

When you maintain a healthy brain, you stave off dementia while maintaining a sharp memory. The best way to do this is by eating the right foods. Below, are eight super-foods that boost brain power.

Incorporate these into your diet to help keep one of your body’s most vital organs functioning optimally.



Eight foods that boost brain power and memory

1. Turmeric

It acts to turn on the parts of your DNA that help reduce inflammation. The important role of turmeric in brain health is described in the Vedic texts and dates back more than 3,000 years.

2. Broccoli

Broccoli is high in sulforaphane, a chemical that aids in detoxification, control of damaging free radicals, and reduction of inflammation.

3. Red wine

Rich in polyphenols that can actually increase brain blood flow.

4. Coconut oil

Enhances the brain’s neurons ability to use energy and at the same time reduce the production of damaging free radicals. It also provides saturated fat – a vital nutrient for the integrity and function of brain cell membranes.

5. Eggs

They are rich in choline, which is a precursor chemical for acetylcholine, and is one of the most basic neurotransmitters. In addition, eggs are packed with cholesterol which is an important component of brain cell membranes as well as serving as a brain-protective antioxidant.

6. Kale

It’s a great low-carb vegetable that’s also rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as potassium and iron.

7. Avocado

High in monounsaturated fats which protect brain cells. What’s more, avocado oil has been shown to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels.

8. Olive oil

Rich in polyphenols, which are powerful brain protective antioxidants.
