Natural Nutrition for your family
According to the Brain Health Guide by Quincy Bioscience, “the normal process of aging can negatively affect brain performance.” No big surprise. I’m ashamed to admit how many times I’ve walked into a room and forgotten what I’d gone in there for.
Here are 3 of their Nutrition Tips for Memory Fitness.
Tip #1: Eat the Right Kind of Fat. The Brain Health Guide points out that the brain and nervous system are comprised of 60% fat. Make sure you’re getting plenty of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (fish, fish oil, flax and chia are good sources). Foods high in saturated fat can disrupt the natural function of your brain. One more reason to lay off the fries.
Tip #2: Water. It seems kind of obvious, but it’s important enough to make the list. Make sure you’re getting at least 8 glasses a day. Especially in these dry winter months.
Tip #3: Try Coconut Oil. It’s gotten a lot of attention in the past year for its many health benefits. Here’s one more.
People who consume coconut oil daily report it helps with their short-term memory and allows them to think clearly, stay focused and have better concentration. Researchers believe this most likely comes form the medium chain triglycerides in coconut oil which are converted by the liver into fat called Ketones. Ketones are a great source of energy for brain cells.
Hope you can remember these 3 Tips!
