Brain Game Claims Fail a Big Scientific Test

An exhaustive evaluation of the science behind brain training games and programs has ended up with disappointing findings, according to NPR: Despite the hype, brain games just don’t improve mental functioning the way they’re advertised.

While the brain training industry faces scrutiny, there are lots of things you can do to keep your brain function at optimum levels with healthy foods, diet and exercise. Seven great foods that can help with this include turmeric, a spice that contains the anti-inflammatory antioxidant curcumin.

Wild Alaskan salmon has omega-3 fats that help fight inflammation too, including in your brain. Broccoli, cauliflower, walnuts, coconut oil and blueberries also have phytochemicals and antioxidants that support brain health.

Astaxanthin, which can be found in wild-caught salmon, exhibits some of the most potent antioxidant activity currently known. It is hundreds of times more effective than vitamin E in squelching singlet oxygen free radicals, and far exceeds the free-radical-scavenging power of vitamin C, CoQ10, beta-carotene and green tea.

Eliminating sugars from your diet and concentrating on a high-quality, high-fat diet may also be useful. Referred to as “nutritional ketosis,” this type of diet includes getting at least 50 to 75 percent of your total calories (some may benefit from as much as 85 percent) from healthy fats, such as olives, avocados, coconut oil, MCT oil, organic pastured butter, cacao butter, raw nuts such as macadamia and pecans, seeds such as black sesame, cumin, pumpkin and hemp seeds, organic pastured eggs, grass-fed meats, lard and tallow.
