The brain, as well as other organs, cannot work without a sufficient amount of energy.
To keep your head always clear and thoughts not confused, include in your menu five healthy foods that improve memory and the ability to concentrate.
Whole grain products
Choose whole grains with a low glycemic index. Thanks to such food, glucose is slowly released into the bloodstream, which helps keep the brain active throughout the day.
Brew tea with fresh sage sprigs. This plant is famous not only for its delicious aroma, but also for its ability to improve memory.
Tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene. It will protect your brain cells from the effects of free radicals and prevent Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
Just a few pumpkin seeds a day can fill your body’s daily requirement for zinc. This element is involved in the work of those areas of the brain that are responsible for instincts, sleep, memory and emotions.
