Get a Super Brain with These 4 Nutrients!
Have you ever forgotten why you walked into a room?
Or struggled to focus when someone is talking to you?
Or had difficulty getting motivated just to take out the trash?
Problems with concentration can happen to anyone at any time… but you may have noticed that it’s become worse since COVID-19 hit last year.
Stress can do a number on your brain… and so can staying indoors.
Fortunately, you can load up on these four key nutrients proven to boost your focus and concentration.
In fact, they could even give you a SUPER BRAIN.
- Vitamin D
Vitamin D can do a lot for your health… but did you know it can help your mind, too?
Vitamin D3 is important for focus and concentration because it helps with nerve function in your brain.
Having low levels of vitamin D can directly minimize cognitive function, while also reducing energy levels and contributing to depression.
That’s a big problem, since at LEAST 40 percent of the population is low in vitamin D!
Now, the best way to get your D is from direct sunlight. But to also get more D in your diet, focus on eating more fatty fish like salmon and tuna.
- Vitamin C
Vitamin C is hailed for its immune system benefits, but its brain-boosting benefits are just as impressive.
Your body needs vitamin C for your neurotransmitters to produce norepinephrine, a hormone that controls your brain’s attention and response actions.
Vitamin C also helps your body cope with oxidative stress.
You can get plenty of vitamin C from oranges, leafy greens, and blueberries.
Omega-3s are as good for your brain as they are for your heart.
Getting more of these healthy fats has been shown to improve attention span, memory, and your ability to complete tasks.
You can get omega-3s from salmon, chia seeds, walnuts, dairy, and grass-fed beef.
- B Vitamins
B vitamins have numerous brain functions, including converting nutrients into neurotransmitters like serotonin, and helping your mitochondria function properly.
This means that these nutrients can help with boost concentration, improve memory, and boost your energy levels.
And on the flip side, having low levels has been tied to slower learning abilities and more trouble focusing.
Get your B vitamins from foods like potatoes, avocados, spinach, and eggs.
