Improve Memory: How to Boost Your Memory and Brain to Avoid Alzheimer's
Welcome to the vita life show. I'm doctor Janine Bowring and today we're talking all about boosting your memory naturally and there are ways to do this especially foods in your diet that can really help your brain function. Where you may not realize is that sixty percent your brain is made of fat. So, if you're not getting enough essential fats in your diet from various sources your brain is suffering and is literally looking for those essential fats. There are different types of omega which will talk about but it's in part to get a variety of different fatty foods in the diet to help didn't feet and nurture the brain. We're gonna talk about some my favorite memory boosting foods starting with coconut oil.
Coconut oil so wonderful oil and the type of fat in coconut oil you don't have to worry about because it actually helps you to burn fat so coconut oil it was fantastic but also helps to feed the brain. A just small teaspoon per day I know a lot of people love it and take a lot more than that but a teaspoon to a tablespoon per day you can you know because it's at room temperature depending on the temperature the room as solidifies. A lot of people to spread this on crackers are on a pieces whole grain bread absolutely delicious.
I just take it straight on the spoon really wonderful. Coconut oil so great brain food second on my list are avocados. Avocados again we know have natural healthy fats so about a half an avocado per day you can slice it up onto a salad eat it plain sprinkle with a little bit of sea salt which is fantastic and again contains natural vitamin E. Because vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin so this isn't avocados as well really important for brain function and natural anti-oxidant. Avocados make sure you get your getting them in your diet for those essential fats nuts as well so nuts and seeds are the great fat source but also proteins.
Vegetarians out there make sure that you getting enough healthy nuts and seeds they shouldn't be roasted preferably and salted but in the most natural state possible. Helping to feed your brain with those essential fatty acids it seems especially pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds contain the trip to fan and trip to fan in the brain converts to serotonin and this is the feel-good hormone which is so important in terms of brain function and our overall emotional status.
Make sure you know if you're feeling low and down that, you're getting in nursing yourself with these great brain foods especially the nuts and seeds the omega 3's of course that we all know from fish. Actually, I don't recommend that people eat too much fish anymore because of the toxicity in the oceans and of course in the fish the PCB's the mercury dioxins other heavy metals. The best way to get the omega 3's in a concentrated form is to supplement and of course the highest quality supplement is the Vita Pure fish oil for and nursing your brain with especially that as the DHA a that concentrates on the brain and the spinal cord and tend to be severely deficient in DHA especially for not eating a lot of fish.
Even if we do eat fish you really it's difficult to get enough for the DHA so in the vita pure fish oil great easy to take fish oil supplement orange tasting little gel caps that are chewable great for the kids as well. People think that it's just like a candy you don't even you know that it's fish oil at all I which you absolutely love.
This is one of my favorites dark chocolate. Dark chocolate is surprisingly good for the brain, of course, is it time but a caffeine helps to wake up the brain but also more importantly for those important anti-oxidants that actually help with the blood vessels in the blood flow to the brain. A little bit dark chocolate every day can only help you if you know if you're having a sweet craving or whatever but can also help with your brain function because of those potent anti-oxidants and helping with the brain flow.
Spinach no studies have shown that spinach is a great brain food reason being is that it contains anti-oxidants that actually helps to slow down the aging process in the brain so, spinach is a great because it's the chlorophyll so it's a green food chlorophyll actually helps to trap heavy metal toxins and heavy metal toxins are often related to Alzheimer's disease. and again to mention the aging brain so this is really great spinach any dark green leafy vegetable for that matter contains chlorophyll a great brain food to help the trap was heavy metals.
And last on the list tomatoes now contains lycopene in which you may have heard have and this helps to combat the aging brain as well and dementia so it's a phytochemical very potent and it's an anti-oxidant really great for protecting and also nourishing the brain so actually devised a formula and put together formula to make it really easy for you in terms of boosting your brain power and your memory as well.
