The Brain Health Diet: Feed Your Brain
As the proverbial saying “you are what you eat” suggests, our health is connected to our diet—and that’s certainly true for brain health. Foods that are beneficial to the brain tend to contain one or more of the following: antioxidants to counteract the negative effects of oxidative stress, B vitamins to promote optimal neurological functioning, and omega-3 fatty acids to help prevent cognitive decline. That means eating plenty of seafood, beans, nuts, berries, whole grains, eggs, and dark leafy greens (keeping in mind other important health-relevant considerations, such as wild vs. farm-raised, or choosing organic options). Feel free to throw in some good-for-your-brain dark chocolate with around 70% cacao, too! You’re welcome.
