Clogged with yesterday’s excess, the body drags the mind down with it.~Horace
Unhealthy food tends to cloud your mind, making your mind lose its sharpness and focus. If you don’t have an alert mind you are bound to make a lot more mistakes, mistakes that can cost you lots of money, time and health.
By eating good brain food you avoid the loss of your mind’s power. A powerful mind, focused is truly magnificent to watch in action. Nothing seems impossible to a sharp mind. The bigger the challenge the more enthusiastic it is.
Foods filled with preservatives, flavor enhancers, food colorants and other kind of chemicals infest your body and slow down your mind. Unhealthy food makes your mind slower, less sharp and prone to making mistakes. A weakened mind makes it a lot easier for you to eat more unhealthy food, creating a vicious circle with no end in sight.
Good healthy food is good brain food. By following the standard healthy eating advice you are assured to improve your mental faculties. But there are also foods that help improve your brain power. Here is a small list of super brain food:
Eat omega 3 rich foods – especially fish because the omega 3 fatty acids help improve your nervous system, enhancing the functioning of your brain. Other omega 3 rich foods are nuts and seeds.
Blueberries and acai berries have been proven in numerous research studies to improve memory, especially short term memory. So if you need to study and forget something for an exam, eat some acai berries or blueberries. Acai berries also contain omega 3 fatty acids and proteins (strange considering they are berries – guess that is what makes them super foods).
Coffee beans and cacao beans both have a revitalizing effect on your brain, jolting it out of slumber. The trick to getting the mind benefits of these super foods lies in using them as unprocessed as possible. If you don’t like coffee, you can use cacao instead of coffee. Just mix cacao powder with hot water and you have a great drink.
