Brain Food

 

The cells of the brain are very vulnerable to reduced blood and oxygen volumes. In addition, many nutritional elements have molecules that are too big to cross the brain barrier. Hence, the brain is very vulnerable to aging through lack of nutrition and lack of exercise, just as the rest of the body.

Conditions such as memory loss, poor concentration and alzheimers have shown to respond well to correct nutrition and stimulation.

The ensure the brain is well nourished depends on having a healthy cardio-vascular system, to push adequate freshly oxygenated blood, carry nutrition to the brain.

Two key nutrients to support brain function are fatty acids [monounsaturated fats] and antioxidants.

Omega-3 helps reduce the risk of dementia risk by balancing the inflammatory effect of so called bad fats like omega-6s [corn oil and soybean oil]. Read more on Omega-3

Antioxidants help destroy cell killing free radicals. Read more on antioxidants.
