Feed your brain

Having a hard time to keep your head together? Are you forgetting stuff? Maybe you need a boost for your brains!

You probably know the saying: ‘You are what you eat.’ In many cases, this appears to be true. Several studies have shown that certain foods can positively influence the brain. Some of the nutrients in these foods go right to our brain cells. Isn’t that interesting?!

Maybe it sounds too good to be true, but the right food can help us improve memory and even (to some degree) prevent dementia. Obviously, eating brain foods won’t suddenly turn you into a genius or a Nobel Prize winner, but adding certain foods to your diet will definitely help your brains to function better.

These healthy foods can “feed your brain”:

1. Berries

2. Cherries
