5 foods that will power your brain

Have you ever felt your mind go blank when you take your first glance at the quiz or test? How about when you were reading your Math textbook and there was nothing that registered in your brain? Did you experience your mind slowly drifting away during classes? I’m guessing your answer to these questions is one big: YES.

Wait no more and continue reading to find out 5 foods that you can eat to finally supercharge your brain!

Avocados

 Avocados are a good source of potassium, Vitamin C, K, folate and not to mention fiber which is one of the essential things needed to boost your brain cells! Even its avocado oil can help keep your doctor away by fighting diabetes and high blood pressure. If you’re not a fan of avocado, try adding it with egg or using its oil as a salad dressing.

Seeds

Ever heard of the phrase: “small but terrible”? Seeds such as sesame, flax and tahini are small but great in helping recharge your brain. These seeds, especially sesame seeds, are filled with the mineral magnesium that your brain could happily munch on. And just like avocado oil, studies even show that sesame oil can help reduce diabetes as well.

Chocolate

Believe it or not, chocolate has one good thing to offer you other than giving you more calories that you don’t need. I’m not only talking about dark chocolate, even though that’s also filled with fiber to help you and your brain, I’m talking about raw chocolate. Cocoa, the bean which chocolate comes from, is loaded with antioxidants that are sure to help you happily eat it without a second doubt.

Garlic

If you’re referring to the chopped and peeled garlic, say goodbye to those because they will not benefit you at all. Buy raw garlic, the ones you could get in your local grocery store. One fact about this food is that it lowers your cholesterol therefore is equally friendly to your heart.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes contain an antioxidant called lycopene that helps prevent dementia. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone. Not only can it help your brain become active but it can help avoid memory loss as well.

Eat these foods and be amazed by the things they can do to your brain!
