Best foods to boost your brainpower

Feeling a little forgetful? Perhaps it’s time to take a look at your diet. Studies have shown that the foods we eat can directly impact the way we think and feel.

Nutrients like omega 3 fatty acids, lycopene , iron  and choline have been shown to help improve memory and brain function.

 

Eating a healthy, balanced diet that includes these boosting foods may help to keep your memory, concentration and focus as sharp as it can be:

  • walnuts
  • spirulina
  • tomatoes
  • pumpkin seeds
  • broccoli
  • sage
  • turmeric
  • coconut oil
  • cauliflower
  • spinach
  • wholegrains
  • oily fish
  • blueberries

Don’t forget that as well as a healthy diet, exercise helps to keep our brains sharp. Research suggests that regular exercise improves cognitive function, slows down the mental aging process and helps us process information more effectively.
