Foods that are good for the brain

1, banana


Experts suggest eating bananas to supplement carbohydrates because they contain pectin, which releases glucose more slowly, makes it difficult for blood sugar to fluctuate too high or low, and affects the nutritional supply of the brain. If you want your brain to be at its peak, you need to replenish carbohydrates.


Because the carbohydrates we eat are broken down into glucose, which is the most important source of energy for the brain. Brain cells, unlike other cells, are dedicated to glucose and cannot rely on other forms of energy.


2. Whole grain


A British professor who studied a group of first graders found that children who ate a low-gi breakfast fared better in a series of mental tests.


Whole grains are not only low in gastrointestinal food, but also rich in vitamin e and vitamin b group, folate, nicotinic acid, etc.


Vitamin b group not only helps glucose to be fully utilized, but also helps protein metabolism, and is a necessary nutrient to maintain normal function of brain cells. Folic acid is related to nerve development and memory.


3, eggs,


Eggs not only have b groups, but high quality protein is also involved in making cells and neurotransmitters. There are also rich nutrients such as vitamins A, E, B6, B12, folic acid and zinc that activate the brain.


Especially folic acid and vitamin B12. A number of studies have shown that chronic deficiency of vitamin B12 and folic acid can lead to memory loss and may even increase the risk of dementia.


The yolk is also rich in lecithin, is the human body synthesis acetylcholine main raw material.


A rodent experiment also found that lecithin uptake could also boost the production of new memory cells.


Experts recommend, however, that the yolk is right enough, about one to two eggs a day. Tofu and soya beans are also full of lecithin and can be used as brain foods.


4, oats


Oats are known in the nutritional community as the "food of the brain." Oat is a low-gi food. It is rich in vitamin b, electron, potassium, zinc and other minerals, which contribute to spatial memory and cognition.


Oats also contain soluble fiber called glucomannan, which blocks the production and absorption of cholesterol and lowers blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing heart disease, arteriosclerosis and stroke risk, all three known causes of dementia.
