|Did you know your brain uses one-fifth of your body’s energy? Here are six brain-boosting ideas for loving on this amazing organ:
1. Foods high in polyphenols protect your brain from stress…get them from blueberries, green tea, colourful veggies and dark chocolate (yes!).
2. Fuel your brain (which is 60% fat) with beneficial fat from olives, avocados, nuts, and choline-rich eggs.
3. Brain-enhance with Omega 3’s: Seaweed, algae (such as spirulina, chlorella) and cold-water fish are excellent sources of this dietary fat.
4. Take vitamin D for mood and higher cognition. The D3 form elevates vitamin D in the blood almost twice as much as D2.
5. Cook using turmeric, rich in neuron-boosting turmerone and anti-inflammatory curcumin, with pepper to increase its absorption.
6. Try Lion’s Mane Mushroom which is a powerhouse for your brain’s neurons. Add ½ tsp of Organic Lion’s Mane powder to a daily protein shake for a mental lift!
Restorative sleep, consistent exercise and catching up with positive friends, along with these brain nutrients, will provide your brain with the love it deserves!
