Foods that Boost Brain Power


What we eat affects more than just our physical appearance. What we eat also affects how well our brain is operating.

Truth is, diet matters for both the body and the mind and choosing the right foods can considerably boost brain power and kick your memory into high gear.

For example, it has been proven that antioxidants reverse age as well as disease related memory and learning deficits. So, if brain power and cognitive performance are important to you, opting for foods high in antioxidants would be wise choices. Some antioxidant rich food choices are: berries – especially blueberries, fruits and veggies such as spinach and carrots. Green tea and even dark chocolate (always in moderation) are also great sources.


Foods that boost Brain Power:

Oily fish

Omega-3 fatty acids are healthy brain fats. They are essential for sustaining optimal memory and overall brain performance and fresh fish is abundant with them. Enjoying fish such as salmon or sardines a few times weekly helps your memory improve.

Coconut oil

Medium chain fatty acids are a source of high energy for the brain and they are abundant in coconut oil. This makes coconut oil the perfect brain fuel. It is the ideal high temperature healthy cooking oil because it does not turn to harmful trans-fat when used at high temperatures, You can consume coconut oil as it is, mix it in your morning coffee, smoothies or even yogurt. Be sure to purchase cold-pressed coconut oil.


Another super power when it comes to boosting memory, a recent paper published in Annals of Neurology revealed that women who consume large amounts of berries experience a slower rate of memory loss. Additionally, berries offer high levels of flavonoids and anthocyanidins…both associated with lower rates of cognitive decline. Blueberries are especially good at protecting our brains from stress and degeneration. Strawberries are another great choice.


Thought of as brain food, this tasty nut is even shaped like a little brain, a huge hint from Mother Nature to its effectiveness.

One last note:

Now that you know some of the powerful foods that help boost brain power, you need to be aware of what destroys it.

The answer is simple:

Sugar. A high sugar diet can be very harmful to your brain. It induces inflammation, oxidative stress and messes with insulin regulation.

You are in control of what goes into your body. Why not do all you can to nurture a healthy brain? 

It clearly makes more sense to choose foods that contribute to the health, functionality and vitality of your brain rather than those that deplete it.
