Ever have moments when you find yourself fighting to remember something important that you are supposed to do, or an important reminder you are supposed to tell your spouse or your children?
Yeah, me too. In fact, I have those type of moments all-too-often.
While some of it can be attributed to a busy lifestyle of work and family or just a natural part of the aging process, most times it can be as simple as the foods that we are eating and drinking.
There are a number of healthy foods and beverages that can help your mind be perform at its best every day. Ensure that you stay mentally fit by making these key foods and beverages a part of your daily diet.
Containing some of the highest levels of antioxidants of any fruit, blueberries are a great source of manganese, which is important for bone development, fiber for regularity, and vitamin C for strong gums and a healthy immune system. Plus, the same antioxidants have been shown to improve learning and memory skills.
Incorporate more healthy fats into your diet. The best fats are those from foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids. Fish such as salmon, as well as sardines and lake trout contain the Omega-3 fatty acids that help prevent cognitive decline.
Not only are avocados an excellent food for cardiovascular health (helping to prevent high blood pressure), they’re also a good source of lutein – a carotenoid that is directly related to better cognition. Additionally, this popular superfood is an important source of fiber, potassium, and vitamins C, K, foliate, and B6. The unsaturated fat it provides is valued for its ability to maintain healthy skin and strong, flexible nails.
Green tea has also been shown to raise metabolism and reduce risk of heart disease. It also aids in reactivating dying skin cells. The antioxidants and nutrients in green tea have been shown to improve brain function.
It’s no secret how important water is to the body. But did you know that drinking water and brain functions are directly linked? In fact, lack of water can cause a host of brain problems, such as memory issues and mental fatigue.
