Brain Fuel - Give your Brain what it Needs!

Give your Brain the Fuel it Needs!

It's really logical to say that our brain is one of the most important organs in our bodies. Besides working out, leading a healthy lifestyle, practicing meditation, learning to deal with your stress levels and getting a good night's sleep daily, you need to eat properly for your brain to be in optimal condition. Even if you're eating correctly, there are specific ingredients or foods you can integrate to your daily routine that are basically high-octane fuel for your brain! We'll tell you which ones and why they're good for your brain.

 

🧠 Linseed

The #1 plant-based Omega-3 fatty acids source for excellence. Around 60% of our brains are made of fat, and half of that fats are the same type as Omega-3. Your brain uses Omega-3 fatty acids to build new cerebral and nerve cells; they are also key for better learning skills and memory.

 

🧠Cranberries

Cranberries and other intense-colored berries contain high levels of anthocyanins, a group of plant-based compounds that are said to have antiinflamatory and antioxidant effects. Antioxidants prevent oxidative stress and inflammation, which could both contribute to premature brain aging and neurodegenerative affections.

 

🧠Cúrcuma

Curcumin, turmeric's active ingredient, crosses the brain blod barrier, which means it can directly enter to the brain and start benefiting brain cells

 

🧠Broccoli

Rich in Vitamin K, broccoli brings more than 100% of the VNR in a 91gr portion (1 cup, aproximately). This fat soluble vitamin is essential for sphingolipids production: a type of fat that's densely packaged in brain cells. Studies in advanced-aged people have shown that a better memory is highly related with a higher Vitamin K intake.

 

🧠Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain powerful antioxidants that protect the body and prevent brain aging. They're also an excellent source of magnesium, iron, zinc and copper. Each of these nutrients is important for brain health.

 

🧠Coffee

If you are coffee-over, you'll be glad to know that it's good for you. Two main components in coffee: caffeine and antioxidants, help your brain. Caffeine in coffee has a number of positive effects on the brain. Try to consume natural and organic coffee for better benefits.

 

So now you know! Give your brain what it needs to function properly and you'll make your whole body feel good. To read more tips that will help you be healthier and feel better, don't forget to browse our Birdman Blog!
