Powerful Foods that Feed Our Brain

The Brain is the MVP of our body.

It controls every aspect of our lives, from our thoughts and feelings to our movements and senses.

It is essential to take good care of our brain, and one way to do that is through our diet.

Certain foods have been shown to improve brain health, and incorporating them into our diets can lead to better brain function, memory, and focus.

In this article, we will discuss some of the best foods for brain health.

Fatty Fish

Fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain function.

You can remember them with the acronym S.M.A.S.H.






Omega-3s help build cell membranes in the brain, which can improve brain function and reduce the risk of neurological disorders.

Studies have shown that people who consume fatty fish regularly have a lower risk of developing dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Make sure to get wild-caught fish and stick to the ones that are low in heavy metals such as the ones listed above and skipjack tuna.


Choline, which is associated with reducing inflammation and promoting brain function, like maintaining memory, can be found in egg yolks.

Choline helps form phosphatidylcholine which is a key component of the cell membranes of the body and then to phosphatidylserine which makes up the membranes of brain cells.

Phosphatidylserine helps preserve and improve memory


Blueberries are a superfood for the brain.

They are high in antioxidants, which protect the brain from damage caused by free radicals.

Free radicals are molecules that can damage cells, and they are associated with many age-related diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease.

Blueberries have also been shown to improve memory and cognitive function.

Folate has been shown to improve cognitive function, while vitamin K is essential for memory.

40% of the population cannot convert synthetic B9 called folic acid into methylated folate which is vitamin B9 that the body can use.

The body needs folate and every other B vitamin for almost every biochemical action that occurs in the body, especially brain function.

We can test if you are of the 40% that needs to take methylated folate and avoid folic acid. Make an appointment with me today to talk about it.
