Sam Conebar, nutritionist at Forza Supplements reveals three of the best superfoods to help boost brain function
The health and vitality of your brain can be affected by a number of factors, with your food choices being one of the most influential. Eating the right foods (and avoiding the wrong ones) is important for both your physical health and mental wellbeing, helping to provide your brain with the essential nutrients that it needs to properly function.
Here are our top three foods that have a great reputation for boosting brain health, cognitive ability, memory and learning:
New research shows that getting regular helpings of leafy green vegetables, particularly spinach, can help to keep dementia at bay as you get older. Famous for giving Popeye his super strength, studies actually suggest that spinach is much more effective at boosting brains rather than brawn.
When it comes to improving overall brainpower, cognition and memory, broccoli is one of the best brain foods available. It is high in a number of important vitamins as well as choline, which keeps your brain sharp and focused, and the powerful antioxidant sulforaphane, which helps to protect and repair brain cells.
Blueberries are one of the most antioxidant-rich foods in the world, which makes them particularly good at protecting the brain from degeneration and stress. Regular consumption of berries (which also includes strawberries, raspberries and blackberries) can help to keep your brain fit and healthy by improving learning, memory and decision making.
These three superfoods can all be found in the new Greens with Benefits Brain Food capsules, a brand new supplement that is designed to support cognitive function and mental performance. The full range is available in selected Boots stores worldwide.
