Ways To Focus With Superfoods

We are what we eat, and that’s just as true for our brains as it is for the rest of our body and vital organs. Here are some ways to focus with superfoods from the Huggington Post. The Huffington Post actually called it Brain Food: Superfoods to improve cognitive function. There are a number of foods that have been proven to improve brain function, encourage focus and also to protect against age-related cognitive decline.  These include walnuts, olive oil, berries, sardines, coffee, spinach, avocados, water, wheat germ, beetroots, garlic, dark chocolate (yes really), and ice-cream (not really).

Superfoods For Your BrainBut before you dismiss the diet-brain connection as mere conjecture, keep in mind that study after study has found a relationship between what we put in our mouths and how well we can perform important thinking and memory tasks. While certain nutrients may specifically assist brain function, there is also the totality of our diets to consider. One recent U.K. study found that a diet high in saturated fat actually caused damage to neurons that control energy and appetite in mice. And several well-regarded studies have shown that meal timing is an important predictor of performance. For example, research shows that eating breakfast can improve the memory and acquisition skills of schoolchildren.

Can you think of any more ways to focus with superfoods? This is a great list but not exhaustive  – there are additional foods including other types of nuts, whole oats (porridge), and other slow digesting carbohydrates, milk, yogurt and other dairy products. Again, there are plenty more that are featured on this site under the Food For Focus category.
