5 Brain Foods to help you improve focus

Your brain is one of the most important organs in your body. It acts as the control center of your body by keeping your heart beating and lungs breathing allowing you to move, feel, and think. Therefore, you must always try to keep your brain in optimal working condition. 

Did you know the foods you eat can play a role in keeping your brain healthy while improving memory and concentration?

Well, now you know!

Hence why we recommend you pay close attention to your diet so that your brain gets the food required to operate in an optimal way.

Here are that 5 brain foods to help you improve focus.

1. Coffee

Coffee contains two important components - caffeine and antioxidants - to help your brian. Caffeine keeps your brain alert by blocking adenosine, a chemical that makes you sleep. Caffeine also boosts serotonin, a “feel-good” neurotransmitter. Therefore coffee is a good option if you're looking for a long work or study session which requires your total focus for a long period of time.

2. Turmeric

Turmeric is a key ingredient in may curries and has been linked to a number of health of health benefits some of which include:

  • Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric can gain directly enter the brain and benefit the cells there meaning it may help improve memory in people with alzheimer’s
  • Since curcumin can directly enter the brain, it can boost neurotrophic factor, a growth hormone that can help brain cells grow
  • It helps boost serotonin and dopamine which are “feel-good” neurotransmitters that can act as antidepressants boosting your mood

Therefore, using turmeric to make tea or curries can have many prolonged benefits on your brain.

3. Nuts

Eating an adequate amount of nuts may improve your heart health, and a healthy heart is often linked to a healthy brain.

It is a known fact that nuts contain several nutrients such as healthy fats, antioxidants, and vitamin E. In fact, a study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed that vitamin E can help slow mental decline especially in elderly people.

Therefore, it’s a good idea to include various nuts as a part of your daily diet to improve your cognitive health.

4. Oranges

Orange contains plenty of vitamin C which is essential for your cognitive health and in preventing mental decline. Vitamin C can help fight off the radicals in your brain that can damage the brain cells therefore protecting against age-related mental decline and Alzheimer's disease. One medium orange a day is sufficient to fulfil your vitamin C requirements for the day. 

Try to include vitamin C in your diet whether it’s through oranges or any other fruit like guava, kiwi, strawberries, or tomatoes.

5. Green Tea

Just like coffee, green tea also contains coffee which can help boost brian function and improve alertness, memory, focus, performance. Apart from caffeine, green tea also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that can help reduce anxiety. Green tea is also rich in antioxidants and polyphenols that may protect your brain from cognitive decline. Polyphenols and antioxidants found in green tea can also reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson’s disease.

Therefore, green tea is an alternate option for you if you don’t like coffee.
