8 Foods That Make You Smarter

Eating well will not only give you the body you want, it is actually very important for your physical and mental health. The brain, just like any other organ, needs nutrients and minerals to keep the grey matter as healthy as possible. The following are some of the best foods you can provide your brain with.

  • Wholegrains
They release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, keeping you mentally alert throughout the day, which promote the ability to concentrate and focus that comes from the adequate, steady supply of energy in our blood to the brain
  • Oily fish 
The most effective omega-3 fats occur naturally in oily fish as EPA and DHA, which are good for healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing.
  • Blueberries 
They improve or delay short term memory loss.
  • Tomatoes 
They are packed with lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that protects against the kind of free radical damage to cells which occurs in the development of dementia.
  • Pumpkin seeds 
They are packed with zinc, which are vital for enhancing memory and thinking skills.
  • Broccoli
They are a great source of vitamin K, which is known to enhance cognitive function and improve brainpower.
  • Sage
They have had a long reputation of improving the memory.
  • Nuts 
They are packed with vitamin E, which helps to prevent cognitive decline, particularly in the elderly.
