We interrupt our regular broadcasting of dire warnings and bad news to bring you some good news. Please eat the following yummy, healthy foods for better brain health:
* Blueberries: A study at Tufts University found that blueberries (along with strawberries and spinach) improve short term memory and coordination.
*Pumpkin seeds: Rich in zinc, pumpkin seeds help reduce toxicity, support immune system health, and help with ADHD.
* Coffee: Studies show that coffee helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
*Walnuts: The excellent omega 3 fatty acids in walnuts improve mood and raise IQ.
* Chocolate: In one study, eating chocolate improved people’s ability to solve math problems in their heads. Another study showed that chocolate helped improve memory, and helped with healing after a stroke.
And if you want to improve your mood and reduce anxiety, take a good probiotic supplement. You know all the figures of speech we have about “gut feelings”? Well, the gut-brain connection is a real thing, and a healthy GI tract directly supports good moods.
You’re welcome. And we now return to our regular broadcasting. Don’t smoke! Sit up straight! Avoid sugar, avoid hydrogenated fats……
