We have all experienced brain fog at least one time in our lives. Brain fog might have you feeling tired and sleepy or lacking concentration. It is also often associated with forgetfulness.
We have found that diet and hydration are hugely important in fighting off brain fog. Therefore, one way to eliminate this fogginess is by changing up your diet!
These 7 foods can help you clear your brain fog.
Turmeric’s main active compound is curcumin, an antioxidant linked to cell performance in the brain that can prevent cognitive decline and impairment related to brain injury.
- Try adding turmeric to a healthy smoothie!
2. NUTRITIONAL YEAST
High in B vitamins, nutritional yeast can improve overall cognitive health and can help with depression and cognitive decline.
It can even help with memory!
- Try nutritional yeast on top of steamed broccoli and olive oil.
Spinach can help with learning and memory because of its high lutein content.
Lutein is a vitamin called a carotenoid that is known to help improve the macula and retina functions.
This carotenoid is a good antioxidant. It is also seen to lower levels of inflammation in those with some mild cognitive impairment.
- Try pureeing spinach with white beans, garlic, and olive oil for a fast and tasty snack dip!
Avocados have vitamin E, which is also shown to improve cognition in the elderly.
They have monounsaturated fats that are known to improve vitamin absorption.
Avocado oil is rich in oleic acid which is extremely healthy and useful to human cell function.
- Try grilled avocados halved and brushed with just olive oil!
Yogurt is full of probiotics, the good bacteria needed to maintain a healthy gut.
Your body produces serotonin in your gut, so to keep up serotonin production and maintain a good mood, you need to make sure you are keeping your gut in good health!
Avoid yogurts with added sugar as this will simply induce inflammation.
- Try making your own salad dressing with yogurt and some minced herbs!
Eggs also have an important, hard-to-get nutrient in them called choline. B vitamin, choline to be exact.
Choline is an essential component in cell membranes, especially in the brain cells.
It is involved in proper cell messaging, cell membrane structural integrity, fat metabolism, and healthy neural function.
In order for brain mitochondria to produce the important neurotransmitter acetylcholine, choline is needed.
- Try deviled eggs with avocado instead of mayonnaise for a healthier alternative!
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon can help reduce cognitive decline related to age and help improve mood.
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are naturally anti-inflammatory and vital to proper brain function.
There is a reason fish is called ‘brain food’.
- Try a simple salmon toast with scrambled eggs and avocado!
