Top 5 Foods that Boost Your Brainpower – Health and Fitness || Life Care


Our brains are powerful organic machines. They control all thought, movement, and sensation
while calculating and reacting with blistering speed. They store an immense amount of data as images,
text, and concepts. Our brains also regulate thousands of complex
functions, usually without bothering the conscious us with the exact details, such as with circadian
rhythm, hormone balance, breathing, unconscious activity, and blood flow. This means the brain is constantly working,
even when we sleep. A variety of factors from diet to lack of
exercise, to stress, to disrupted sleep can affect how your brain functions. Our neuro control centers need a constant
stream of oxygen and nutrients to function properly. And a well-balanced diet, or lack of one,
plays a huge role in your ability to focus. Number one. Blueberries. The antioxidants in these tasty little blue
jewels help protect the brain from free radical-damage. Free radicals have been linked to diseases
throughout the body including cancer, and to cognitive impairment. Studies in mice have shown that blueberries
helped boost brain performance over time, and essentially reduced the effects of age-related
conditions, such as Alzhemier’s and dementia. Pop a few into your oatmeal for a brain-food
filled breakfast or munch on them for an afternoon pick-me-up. Number two. Nuts. Having trouble studying? Munch on a mixture of these nutrient-dense
babies for a quick concentration boost. While all nuts are packed with nutrition (so
long as you opt for raw, not chocolate-covered or roasted varieties), almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts
and pecans all contain high levels of vitamin E and omega 3 fatty acids—both of which
help improve cognitive function. Number three. Eggs. You would never think eggs are thought to
be a brain food, but they are. Firstly, a good protein source helps you to
feel full and not get distracted during an exam time. More importantly, your body requires choline
to keep the memory portion of your brain functioning properly; and eggs are great source of choline. Also pair eggs with lentils for double protein
power with this breakfast recipe: Baked Eggs with Lentils, Peppers and Tomatoes. Number four. Chocolate. When you eat dark chocolate with at least
70% cacao content, it can actually help improve your focus. This is now a good reason to include a small
serving of dark chocolate as your everyday snack. Just remember to always read the ingredient
label and look for products with either “cocoa beans” or ”cocoa mass” as the first
ingredient rather than sugar. Number five. Green Tea. No, green tea is not a building block of the
brain, but this powerful antioxidant-rich ingredient can help to deliver more blood
to your brain. Green tea improves blood flow and can help
your brain perform at its maximum. In addition, the low level of caffeine can
also help to improve focus. Just be sure to drink real green tea (brewed
from leaves or matcha powder) and not the sugary bottled drinks that is marketed as
tea.

  1. Yeah, no surprise, considering that another company Prevagen, packaging seaweed and as selling it as a cure-all, and supported by loads of fake testimonials and loads of lies in general…

    Was already in the process of being shut down by the Federal Trade Commission, but saw their chance to buy redemption by donating $millions to Trump's organization when he came into power, in exchange for preventing the FTC from shutting them down.

    It's very simple, give Trump money and Trump sells you absolution. Now go fact-check that!
    But I forgot, anyone who already knows everything, never needs to check any facts.

  2. A comment on the Orange County law. My family lives in Corona del Mar , Cal. It is so beautiful. I visit as often as I can. My daughter and little grandson were in Fashion Island Sopping Center. They came out of Macy's. McCoy wanted to have a hot dog near the entrance if Maycys. My daughter said let's go home and I will fix lunch. They live across the freeway. In Irving Terrace. She turned on the TV when they arrived and saw footage of an active shooter in the same area where they had been standing. They were spaired this horrible tragedy. Others did not. Our country is under attack from those who want to own our country but no love in their hearts to become an American. I pray our President will finally get the support to end this constant illegal action🙏
