The right diet for your brain



The right diet for your brain


You might associate a healthy diet only with physical benefits, but it can also do your brain a lot of good! Eating the right kinds of food can help your memory, keep you focused and improve your cognitive skills.


Wholegrain products

Wholegrain products such as pasta, bread, flour supply a stable level of energy for a couple of hours instead of giving you a short and high energy shock and soon leaving you tired and sleepy. This will allow you brain to work effectively.


Oily fish

Omega-3 fats present in oily fish such as salmon and tuna are necessary for the best functioning of the brain. They can help you with your memory. Eating fish a couple times in a week will keep your brain healthy.


Seeds and nuts

Seeds and nuts are a good source of vitamin E, which relate to less cognitive decline. Feel free to snack on sunflower seeds or hazelnuts when you’re studying, it will not only keep you from feeling hungry, but also make your brain happy.


Fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables contain many vitamins and nutrients, which are good for your brain and your general wellbeing. Green leafy vegetables are especially good for your brain, due to vitamin K, which slows cognitive decline. Don’t stick only to green vegetables, eat vegetables in all colors of the rainbow to supply different vitamins and nutrients.


Something extra

Another element of a healthy lifestyle which can do wonders for your brain is exercise. Exercise keeps your whole body healthy and it helps you deal with stress. Due to stress, cortisol (also known as the stress hormone) is released. Cortisol is bad for your brain and can damage it.


Leading a healthy life – eating the right food and exercising – can improve your brain power.
