Five foods that could boost your brain health and maintain memory – including chocolate
Your brain works for you around the clock, with neutrons firing information even while you sleep.
Much like a car engine, your body needs fuel to operate, and what you eat can have a direct impact on the performance of your vital organs.
The brain, in particular, requires “high-quality fuel” in order to perform at its best, according to experts from Frederick Health.
The experts state: “Foods with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants nourish your brain and protect it from oxidative stress, which is is an imbalance between the production of free radicals (molecules with one or more unpaired electron) and antioxidants (substances that neutralise or remove free radicals by donating an electron) in the body, which can lead to cell and tissue damage.”
Similarly, low quality food, such as refined sugar or processed foods, can diminish your brain’s ability to work at peak performance.
While studies in this field, known as nutritional psychiatry, are still expanding and learning more over time, there are some foods that experts claim to have a positive impact on the brain.
Here are five foods you can incorporate into a healthy diet to help boost your brain health.
