Meanwhile foods that you can add in your diet to keep your brain healthy

NIO Desk,  

Vegetables are well known for giving the body essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. While some vegetables are good for the eyes because of their high vitamin A content, others may be good for the body and immune system because of their high vitamin C content. It is crucial that we include all varieties of fruits and vegetables in our diet because they each serve a different purpose for the body.

The brain requires the same amount of necessary vitamins and minerals and healthy fats as other body organs. We must consume foods that give the brain all the vitamins and minerals it needs in order for it to function properly. Here are some foods that will support brain health.

#1 Beetroot to keep brain young and healthy

This vegetable contains high levels of nitrates and folic acids, which support brain health. While folic acid, a Vitamin B9, helps to lower the risks of disorders like dementia or Alzheimer’s disease among others, the nitrates in the vegetable help to increase blood flow in the brain.

#2 Berries for the brain

Berries. According to research, flavonoids, the natural plant pigments that give berries their distinct colours, also aid in memory improvement. According to a study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital at Harvard, women who eat two or more servings of strawberries  can postpone memory loss by up to 2.5 years.

#3 Carrots

Carrot: Beta-carotene, which is present in carrots and other orange vegetables like sweet potatoes, red peppers, and other vegetables, eventually aids in maintaining the health of the brain. Antioxidant beta-carotene prevents the body from being harmed by free radicals and also enhances cognitive function.

#4 Walnuts for healthy brain

Walnuts. Nuts are a great source of protein and good fats, and one variety in particular may help with memory. Increased walnut consumption is related to high cognitive abilities. Alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid, is abundant in walnuts. Omega-3 fatty acid-rich diets have been associated with lowered blood pressure and cleaner arteries. That benefits the heart and the brain.

#5 green vegetables

Leafy green vegetables for a healthy brain: These foods are full of beta-carotene, vitamin K, and antioxidants, all of which are vital for the health of the brain. Antioxidants aid in preventing the body’s damage from free radicals, which again supports maintaining brain health.

#6 Broccoli

In the list of cruciferous vegetables that can positively impact your brain health is broccoli. Cruciferous vegetables are high in vitamin K, which has been associated with a better memory, according to Northwestern Medicine. These vegetables, such as broccoli, cauliflower, and others, are also a significant source of folate, which is crucial for brain ageing and cognitive function.

#7 Orange vegetables

Sweet potatoes and other orange vegetables like carrots, red capsicum, and butternut squash are excellent sources of beta-carotene. Because of its antioxidant properties, beta-carotene has been associated with better cognitive health.

#8 Turmeric

This dark yellow spice, which is a main component of many Indian dishes, has many advantages for the brain.

The active component of turmeric, curcumin, has been demonstrated to cross the blood-brain barrier, allowing it to enter the brain and benefit its cells directly.

It is a strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant substance that has been connected to the many advantages for the brain.

People who take turmeric may experience memory improvements. It might also assist in removing the amyloid plaques, which are a defining feature of Alzheimer’s.

# 9 Dark chocolate

 Cacao, also known as cocoa, is a component of dark chocolate. Flavonoids, a class of antioxidant, are found in cacao.

Since the brain is extremely vulnerable to oxidative stress, which contributes to age-related cognitive decline and brain diseases, antioxidants are particularly crucial for maintaining brain health.

As per studies, the brain appears to benefit from cacao flavonoids.
