THESE 3 “Brain Foods” STOP Alzheimer’s (Delicious!)
It’s no secret that what you eat can have a HUGE impact on your heart.
And the same is true when it comes to food’s impact on your brain?
Eating processed foods – like packaged meals, desserts, and artificial sweeteners – can give you brain fog… and even lead to depression and other mental health issues.
Fortunately, this isn’t true of all foods.
Because research has found that there are also brain-protective foods as well – including ones that can help shield your brain against Alzheimer’s… and STOP the disease before it starts.
Here are three of the best “brain foods” around.
If you were to ask me about the healthiest foods you could eat, salmon would be right there at the top of the list.
This flavorful fish is loaded with omega-3s. This healthy fat can improve your cardiovascular and eye health, and strengthen your immune system.
Its impact on your brain is equally impressive.
That’s because salmon helps boost blood flow to areas of your brain that control memory and learning.
Omega-3s can also directly combat toxic amyloid-beta plaques and tau proteins – the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease.
Plus, they also combat brain inflammation, which also plays a role in dementia.
But to get even more bang for your salmon buck, eat it with spinach.
Spinach contains a ton of folate – and higher intakes of folate have been linked with a lower incidence of dementia.
It also contains beta-carotene and vitamin K, which have also been found to improve brain health.
In fact, one study showed that people who eat one cup of leafy greens per day haave the same cognitive function assomeone 11 years younger who didn’t eat their greens.
Last but not least, to impact what’s going on in your brain, you have to pay attention to what’s going on in your gut.
Studies have shown that improving your microbiome (that’s the community of trillions of bacteria that live in your gut) can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s.
And one of the best ways to do that? With fermented foods like pickles, kefir, and yogurt.
