FOODS THAT ARE GOOD FOR YOUR BRAIN

by Anwar Azhari

1. Dark chocolate has a powerful antioxidant properties. It contains several natural stimulants such as caffeine which enhance focus and concentration. Besides that, it also stimulates the production of endorphins, which helps you to improve your mood. A quarter of a bar of dark chocolate a day would be all that is required to get you all the benefits and keeps you going well by the day.

2. Whole grains such as oatmeal, brown rice and whole-grain breads can reduce the risk for heart disease. Because all of our body organ depends on blood flow, therefore by promoting cardiovascular health, we are promoting the good flow of the organs system, which includes the brain. Whole grains are rich in fiber, vitamin E and omega-3. A meal of whole grain by breakfast time would be enough for a day.

3. Blueberry is a kind of fruit which could change your life. In some sources, it had been found that blueberries helps to protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effect of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Studies had also shown that diets rich in blueberries significantly improved both learning capacity and motor skills of aging rats, making them mentally equivalent to much younger rats. It is recommended to add at least a cup of blueberries a day in any form, either fresh, frozen, or dried.

4. Nuts and seeds are good sources of vitamin E in which with high levels of vitamin E, it corresponds with less cognitive declines as you get older. A handful of walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, and unhydrogenated nut butters such as peanut butter and almond butter. Raw or roasted doesn't matter and although you are on a sodium-restricted diet, buy unsalted nuts instead.


5. Freshly brewed tea. Two or three cups of freshly brewed tea either hot or iced, contains a modest amount of caffeine which, when used judiciously it can boost brain power by enhancing memory, focus, and mood. Tea also has potent antioxidants, which promotes healthy blood flow. However, bottled or powdered tea don't do the trick but tea bags does. As so, the best result is to have freshly brewed tea.


and yet, there are too many else to be placed here. such as honey, dates, avocados, raisins, and much more. some of it we had already heard about their goodness. i chose these 5 foods because its kinda a new stuff for me i guess..
