1. EggsCellent Brain Health

If you want to be an egghead throughout your life, you’ll need plenty of eggs…and chicken. It doesn’t matter which one comes first but both chicken and eggs contain B vitamins that are vital for continued brain health. B vitamins like B6, B12 and folic acid are associated with reductions in the risk of strokes, cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. Another nutrient in eggs, choline, helps memory retention and cognitive development. So, if you want to continue being a brain box, keep it simple and eat more eggs and more chicken.

2. Juice Up Your Brain Power

Fruit and vegetables are a staple of any healthy diet but their effectiveness isn’t limited to physical wellness. Eating mostly fruit and veg is important for a healthy brain as they contain anti-inflammatory polyphenols that help protect your brain cells from cognitive decline. Some B-vitamins in fruit and vegetables, especially folate and B6, also have a protective effect against poor mental health. Simply put, if you eat more fruits and vegetables, you are at a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or suffering from depression.

3. Fishing for Healthier Brain Function

Eating oily fish on a regular basis is a huge help in promoting brain health. Fish like salmon, sardines, herring, mackerel, pilchards, and kippers contain essential fatty acids that can’t be made by the body. And if we don’t obtain these essential fatty acids through food like fish that’s a problem. These EFA’s help you manage stress and relieve depression while lowering your risk of dementia and memory loss. Oily fish also contain Vitamin D which may also help prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

4. Crack Brain Health with Nuts

Nuts may be small but they can play a big role in promoting healthy brain function. Vitamin E is now thought to help prevent cognitive decline especially as you age and nuts are a super source of Vitamin E. All nuts like almonds, pistachios and macadamias are good for a healthier brain but walnuts are particularly useful for brain health. Walnuts contain double the number of antioxidants that counteract diseases like dementia as well as an omega-3 fatty acid that combats brain inflammation. Make brain health an easier problem to solve by eating more nuts.

5. Wholegrains for a Healthy Brain

Wholegrains like oats, barley, and quinoa help improve your concentration and focus. How? Wholegrains release energy slowly into your bloodstream making sure your mind stays alert right through the day. You don’t get the energy spikes and energy lulls associated with carbohydrates like white bread with wholegrains; they are a steady and slow-releasing source of energy for your mind and body. Try wholegrain bread, rice, and pasta to keep your brain sharp for longer.
