Natural Brain Boosters

As we age, we can lose some of our memory and brain power. But there are foods you can incorporate into your diet that can help keep you feeling and thinking young. Boosting your memory keeps it working well. Here are some natural ways to keep your brain strong!

Five natural brain boosters:

Tea. Green and black tea are full of anti-oxidants which protect you from free radicals. These anti-oxidants are available in Vitamin E, but tea has 20 times more power. Green tea lowers the risk of blood clots which are linked to stroke. So skip a soda and have some tea. Your brain will thank you.

Blueberries. Blueberries are a superfood with the ability to protect your brain from damage caused by environmental toxins. They may also reverse some age-related memory loss and decline in motor skills. So when you are eating your breakfast, throw some blueberries on your oatmeal or yogurt and keep your brain healthy.

Grains. As much as we all enjoy a delicious piece of bread or bowl of rice, it's a good idea to cut back on your white foods. Choose whole grains when eating carbohydrates and incorporate beans and vegetables when you are filling your plate. These can lower your risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Spinach. Spinach is another superfood with lots of health benefits. Spinach can protect brain cells against aging. Full of Vitamin K, spinach can help your brain function and keep you young.

Tomatoes. Tomatoes are known to boost memory. Tomatoes have lycopene which can help keep your memory sharp. Lycopene is also found in  watermelons, guava and pink grapefruit. Add these fruits to your diet to keep your brain in peak condition.

And don't forget to work out your brain. Try doing Sudoku or crossword puzzles to keep your brain sharp.
