Question and answer
What about nutrition for the brain? Are there brain foods? Yes! Can you name foods that are good for the brain?
Healthy Fats - Build Your Brain Much of a brain cell's structure is made up of what are called "healthy fats". The most important of these are the Omega-3 fatty acids. [ As your brain repairs itself and grows new neurons, it needs an abundant supply of Omega-3s from your diet. The best sources of Omega-3 fats include cold-water fish such as salmon and albacore tuna. Other foods with Omega-3 are canola oil, soybeans, walnuts, wheatgerm, eggs, and flaxseed oil. Recent studies have shown that Omega-3 vitamins can greatly improve memory and attention in some people. Read about my family's
experience with fish oil supplements 2. Antioxidants - Protect Your Brain As we age, substances in our bloodstream known as "free radicals" attack and break down our brain cells. If you don't fight this, you are likely to experience age-related memory loss when you get older. Fortunately, there are a lot of foods that contain a helpful substance called "antioxidants". These antioxidants merge with the free radicals in your blood and make them harmless. So it pays to eat lots of antioxidant foods every day. Good sources of antioxidants include tea (especially green tea), blueberries and other berries, red grapes, tomatoes, broccoli, garlic, spinach, carrots, whole grains, and soy. 3. High-Tyrosine Proteins - Spark Your Brain Besides neurons, your brain also includes important chemicals called "neurotransmitters". ]
