5 “Smart” Foods

Our brain is the most mysterious organ that is known. Scientists work every day on understanding certain aspects of it but with every answer they find, 2 more questions appear.

The data about our brain is almost infinite. Scientists have found what substances that our brain needs to be healthy.

There are some foods that are proven to make our brains healthier. Here are the Top 5:

Fish

Its super powera are the Omega-3 acids which help our brain in several ways. They help coat our neurons with good fats, which allows them to move easily through our brain. Omega-3 acids also help our brain to get more oxygen but the most important thing they do is enable our brain to learn new information and keep the old ones stored and easily accessed.

 

Walnuts

In addition to the Omega-3 acids, walnuts also have Omega-6, Folate, vitamin E, and vitamin B6 which are helping our brain to think clearly. 

 

Broccoli

Despite its taste, when you learn how much is useful for you, the consumption will be worth it. This food has Vitamin K which prevents calcification in the brain. That is a hardening of the arteries, one of the Alzheimer symptoms. 

 

Eggs

They contain a substance called Choline, which plays a role in developing our brain and improving our memory. This substance is also important for pregnant women and the developing of their child. The vitamin B12 that can be found in eggs fights against brain shrinkage which is a case for people with Alzheimer.

 

Dark Chocolate

In addition to the overall enjoyment of eating chocolate, it will also help you improve cognitive function. Chocolate increases the blood flow to your brain and also has a chemical called Phenyl Ethylamine, which is the chemical our brain produces when we fall in love. So eating this sweet snack can help you elevate your mood and also treat depression.
