Scientists have compiled a list of products that are most useful for the functioning of the human brain and can increase mental activity.
It turns out that intelligence also depends on proper nutrition. Nutritionists have found that four types of foods stimulate the brain and increase mental performance.
Fatty fish are high in omega-3s. These polyunsaturated fatty acids are actively involved in the production of gray matter in the brain, which is responsible for the accumulation and assimilation of information.
It has been experimentally proven that people who regularly consume milk and dairy products significantly improve the performance of logical thinking and memory. Brain cells easily assimilate the components of dairy products, and this has a positive effect on a person’s intellectual abilities.
Beans, peas, soybeans and lentils contain a large amount of vitamin B and folic acid, which do not directly affect intelligence indicators, but have a positive effect on one of the mental functions — they strengthen memory.
The antioxidant lycopene contained in tomatoes actively neutralizes the harmful effects of free radicals on the human brain. Lycopene promotes cell renewal, which leads to skin rejuvenation, as well as cleansing and healing of the body as a whole.
In addition to these four food groups, nutritionists also consider cranberries, spinach, beets, cabbage, and blueberries to be beneficial for brain activity.
