BRAIN FOOD

Support our brain with a healthy diet!




Although it only makes up 2% of our body weight, it consumes 20% of our energy. Luckily, there are many foods, so-called brain food, with which we can feed our gray cells.


Our brain needs nothing more than water!

If we don't drink enough fluids, our brain cells shrink and we are less productive. To protect it from this, we should drink at least 2 liters of water per day.


Nuts: perfect nourishment for the nerves

They are rich in unsaturated fatty acids and B vitamins, which protect our nerves. In addition to omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts also provide protein and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. But you shouldn't eat more than a handful of nuts per day.


Proteins: For internal information exchange, learning and remembering

We get protein, for example, from fish or quark, but also from plant sources, e.g. chickpeas, which provide plenty of B vitamins in addition to protein, or soybeans (e.g. in tofu), which also contain vitamins B1, B2 and B6, as well as iron and magnesium and zinc.Omega-3 fatty acids:

In addition to nuts, plant-based suppliers of omega-3 fatty acids include linseeds or linseed oil.Berries: rich in antioxidantsThe secondary plant substances protect our brain cells, for example, from stress.Grax sugar: fuel for the


Concentration?

In order not to switch to the back burner, our brain needs energy - otherwise our ability to concentrate suffers. In such moments we often reach for glucose. But this should only be an emergency solution, because a stable carbohydrate level is important for brain function!


Oatmeal: the better source of energy:

They only cause blood sugar levels to rise slowly and also contain fiber, vitamins B1 and B6. Oats are also considered a pick-me-up and prevent nervousness, stress and concentration problems.
