Happy, Healthy Brain Foods!

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Blog | 3 comments

We interrupt our regular broadcasting of dire warnings and bad news to bring you some good news.  Please eat the following yummy, healthy foods for better brain health:

* Blueberries:  A study at Tufts University found that blueberries (along with strawberries and spinach) improve short term memory and coordination.

*Pumpkin seeds:  Rich in zinc, pumpkin seeds help reduce toxicity, support immune system health, and help with ADHD.

* Coffee:  Studies show that coffee helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

*Walnuts:  The excellent omega 3 fatty acids in walnuts improve mood and raise IQ.

* Chocolate:  In one study, eating chocolate improved people’s ability to solve math problems in their heads.  Another study showed that chocolate helped improve memory, and helped with healing after a stroke.

And if you want to improve your mood and reduce anxiety, take a good probiotic supplement.  You know all the figures of speech we have about “gut feelings”?  Well, the gut-brain connection is a real thing, and a healthy GI tract directly supports good moods.

You’re welcome.  And we now return to our regular broadcasting.   Don’t smoke!  Sit up straight!  Avoid sugar, avoid hydrogenated fats……


  1. That’s the kind of news I like to hear.

  2. Coffee is on the good list, huh? And how happy does that make you? ;^)

    • Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
