FOOD FOR THOUGHT - 5 BRAIN BUILDING FOODS!
completehealth-fruit-heart
There's no denying that as we age chronologically, our body ages right along with us. But research is showing that you increase your chances of maintaining a healthy brain well into your old age if you add these "smart" foods to your daily eating regimen along with exercise.

Choose from the list of smart foods below to optimize your brain power:

1. Nuts

Nuts contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats to keep your arteries clear, as well as levels of precursors of serotonin to boost mood. One ounce a day is just right; more is fine, but remember to be careful of calorie overload - an ounce is about twelve walnuts or twenty-four almonds.

2. Fish
Fish (especially wild salmon, whitefish, tilapia, catfish, flounder and mahi mahi) contain artery-clearing omega-3 fatty acids. Serving size recommendation is 13.5 ounces a week (or three servings about the size of your fist)

3. Blueberries
Evidence accumulated at Tufts University in the United States suggests that the consumption of blueberries may be effective in improving or delaying short term memory loss. High in antioxidants which prevent free radical damage.

4. Tomatoes

There is good evidence to suggest that lycopene, a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes, could help protect against the kind of free radical damage to cells which occurs in the development of dementia, particularly Alzheimer's.

5. Whole Grains

Like everything else in your body, the brain cannot work without energy. The ability to concentrate and focus comes from the adequate, steady supply of energy - in the form of glucose in our blood to the brain. Achieve this by choosing whole grains with a low-glycemic index, which release glucose slowly into the bloodstream, keeping you mentally alert throughout the day. Opt for 'brown' cereals, wheat bran, whole grain bread and brown pastas.

Brain decline affects all aging humans. Scientific studies demonstrate more youthful cognition and memory in response to the proper nutrients. Cognitex® provides the following brain boosting ingredients in one advanced formula:

Gastrodin acts as a "brain shield," calming brain cells and helping to protect against oxidant, inflammatory, and excitatory damage. Gastrodin's multiple modes of action work together to improve circulation and shield the brain from age-related insults.1-3

Alpha-glyceryl phosphoryl choline boosts levels of acetylcholine; a neurotransmitter that enables brain cells to communicate. Acetylcholine is intimately involved in memory and learning. Acetylcholine levels markedly decline as humans age past 30.

Vinpocetine enhances circulation, oxygenation, electrical conductivity of brain cells, and helps support healthy blood flow.

Hops and rosemary have all shown to help suppress inflammatory cytokines.

Wild blueberry extract has been shown to inhibit oxidative and inflammatory changes in brain cells believed to be involved in memory decline.

The ability of phosphatidylserine (PS) to improve cognitive skills has been extensively studied. PS exerts significant benefit for cognition, especially those functions that tend to decline with age, including memory, learning, vocabulary skills, and concentration.

Ashwagandha inhibits an enzyme (acetylcholinesterase) that breaks down acetylcholinein the brain. 

Grape seed extract improves blood vessel tone and elasticity, thus boosting cerebral oxygen flow.

Uridine-5'-monophosphate (UMP)is a compound naturally found in the milk of nursing mothers and is essential to humans when brains are the youngest. Uridine-5'-monophosphate also supports superior cognitive function in aging adults.
