Brain boosting diet!

A diet of junk food can junk up your brain whereas a balanced diet rich in omega- 3 fatty acids can give it a boost. Here are some brain boosting foods.

Vegetables such as broccoli and avocados have an abundance of Vitamin B 5 which is essential for good brain functioning.

Another major food source of this vitamin is in meats. Whole grains are another good source, but milling often removes much of it, as it is found in the outer layers of whole grains.

Ginkgo biloba:
Whether in capsules or tea, ginkgo leaves have been shown to increase blood flow to the brain, helping memory and concentration. The effect is quick, and doesn't seem to diminish with regular use.

Peanuts, legumes and cereals contain Vitamin B3 which enhances memory. When young and middle- aged subjects were given either niacin or a placebo, the ones who got the niacin achieved a 10- 40 per cent improvement in memory tests. Animal sources of Vitamin B3 include chicken, beef and fish.

Nuts and chocolate:
Nuts and seeds are good sources of the antioxidant vitamin E, which halts the cognitive decline as you age. Dark chocolate also has powerful antioxidant properties, and contains natural stimulants like caffeine, which can enhance focus and concentration.
