What you eat and drink can have a huge effect on your ability to remember things. For instance, consuming too much alcohol can lead to short-term memory loss, which you may know if you’ve ever had one too many drinks. In addition, consuming too many processed foods that are void of nutrients and full of chemicals will impact brain health negatively. Fortunately, there are some foods you can add to your diet that have been shown to not only boost brain function but also help prevent degeneration of the brain. Here are 5 of them. First off, we have coconut oil, which is a plant-based saturated fat that has been shown to improve specific cognitive abilities in Alzheimer’s patients related to language and orientation. If coconut oil can improve the brain of Alzheimer’s patients who already have marked signs of brain degeneration, imagine what it can do for a healthy brain with no signs of dementia, Alzheimer’s, or age-related memory loss! The second brain food we have to present to you is rosemary. Rosemary may be known for the distinct flavor it imparts on dishes, but it also has two active antioxidants that prevent the oxidation of fats. Since your brain is mostly fat, this helps to protect the brain from neurodegeneration. Next up we have turmeric, an savory spice from India. Turmeric’s active ingredient is curcumin, which has many neuroprotective properties that fight inflammation and prevent plaque from forming on the brain. Put simply, turmeric helps to keep the brain clear. The fourth food is walnuts, which, if you think about it, looks like a brain inside of a skull! Eating walnuts help improve the signaling between your brain’s neurons, allowing it to function at an optimal level. Lastly, we have extra-virgin olive oil. This type of olive oil is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties that are as strong as taking ibuprofen for inflammation! That’s some powerful food as medicine. Looking for ways to incorporate these foods into your diet? Look no further!
