Saholy Posted January 10, 2016 Report Share Posted January 10, 2016 Most native English speakers have heard the expression, 'Brain Food' that means food that helps stimulate our brain. It is usually applied to situations where we want to stimulate learning. So this brings up the question, 'Which foods help you learn?' I have heard of people who study with certain smells like fresh ginger and then when they go to take an exam, they bring that scent with them and it helps aid in memory. But I was researching actual foods recently and found the following: Eating fatty acids found in things like fish, walnuts, and oils like linseed can aid in helping to keep our brain healthy. Some people who have memory diseases were found to be lacking in essential fatty omega oils. This may prove the theory that it is necessary for healthy brain function. Another benefit to fish is Vitamen B. As we get older our body does not produce as much of it and it is a necessary vitamen for our cognitive thinking. Other foods that contain vitamen B are chicken, soy, and eggs. One thing about sitting too long and studying is it isn't good for our circulation. Getting up and taking a 2 minute break every 20 minutes does us wonders. But another thing that helps the blood flow to the brain is Vitamen K which can be found in foods many green leafy veggies like Kale, Collard Greens, and Parsley. Make yourself a juice with Parsely, lime, and a little sugar and you will boost your brain power with a big charge that will probably get you near addicted to the green goodness. So thats a few things I have found. Do you have some superfoods you can add to my list? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
