Foods That Improve Brain Health

Feeding your brain the right food can have a huge impact on your cognitive function. It may also protect you from long-term mental decline. CNN examined a number of the best foods for brain health and this is a good sign that the power of healthy eating is finally getting the attention it deserves. 

If you want to boost your brain power, one of the best choices you can make is to eat more unprocessed whole foods. Real foods are full of the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and countless other phytochemicals that nourish your brain cells (and even grow new ones).

Consider this: People who eat plenty of vegetables and fruits (about 1.6 cups, or 400 grams) a day perform better on cognitive tests while those who eat a lot of sugar are 1.5 times more likely to develop mild cognitive impairment than those who do not.
So, when choosing your foods remember that it's not only a matter of how many calories they contain and whether or not they might make you "fat" — it's a matter of choosing those that contain the nutrients to support optimal health, including that of your brain.

I recommend checking out my “Top 7 Foods to Boost Brainpower” for more information on how diet can influence your mental acuity. It is also important to recognize foods you want to avoid. Processed foods, sugar and carbs should all be avoided. For a list of the “9 Foods You Should Never Attempt to Eat,” click here
