Few Brain booster Foods for you…

News4u-Features Desk-  It’s that time of the year again… exam period! Whether you’re a high school or university student, I’m sure we all know what it feels like to spend sleepless nights, trying to stuff more content into our over-worked brains.

But did you know that eating the right foods is not only beneficial for your physical health, but it can also boost brain function? Despite it’s size, the brain is an extremely active organ that consumes up to 20% of your caloric intake every day!

Therefore, it’s crucial to fuel it with essential nutrients that will not only enhance mental performance, but also increase productivity and help control those crazy mood swings. Next time you step into the kitchen for a study snack – put down the packet of crisps, and choose one of these brain-boosting options instead!

 

Dark Chocolate

Dark chocolate

 

Yes, you read that right. Believe it or not, dark chocolate is wonderful brain food to have in moderation. It contains natural stimulants which increase blood flow to the brain, helping you to focus and improve concentration. Not only that, it stimulates the production of endorphins to boost your mood and keep your spirits lifted! Look out for brands that contain 85% or more cacao – the greater the percentage, the more benefits you’ll get from each piece (or two)!

 

 

 

Berries

Berries are a quick, convenient snack packed full of health benefits to promote brain function. The antioxidants and phytonutrients they contain help improve blood flow to the brain to enhance mental performance. In particular, research has suggested that blueberries can improve or delay short-term memory loss. Another great benefit is that they may protect the brain from neurological damage and reduce the effects caused by age-related conditions… anti-ageing for the brain, anyone?
