Tapping the Miracle Brain

Posted on January 15, 2020 | No Comments on Tapping the Miracle Brain

It is time to control your destiny. Don’t leave your intelligence level or your creativity to the genes that your parents gave you, because contrary to common belief, the brain evolves according to how we nourish it.

The brain is not merely an inherited machine, but a power organ which can make or break your different undertakings.

If you’ve noticed that your memory is slowly failing, you’re forgetting some of the tasks that were given to you, or most of the people or places that you’ve encountered just “look familiar,” then you have to rescue your brain. Being prone to depression is also the result of an unhealthy brain.

Feed your brain with the nutrients that it needs. In Jean Carper’s international bestselling book entitled “Your Miracle Brain:’ she teaches her readers to maximize their brain power by eating sensibly.

Be a little wiser and follow these steps to a healthy diet, which is the key to boosting your life beyond your expectations:

Eat fruits and vegetables. You must have heard about this advice since you started growing teeth. But the question is, how often do you abide by it? Fruits and vegetables contain antioxidants that can save you from genetic diseases and mental decline, which may start in the early twenties. Fruits and vegetables are also rich in vitamins and minerals, which can delay the mental ageing process. Eat fresh harvest for a fresh mind.

Eat seafood. Omega 3, derived from fish oil, works wonders on the brain cells. This fluid fat can make cell-membranes soft and flexible, thus, making message transmission faster. Eating fish also alleviates aggression, depression, and stress, and it can help with concentration and attention problems. Furthermore, those who eat fish more often are observed to think faster, retain knowledge longer, and concentrate better. Kinds of fish containing high Omega 3 include mackerel, salmon, tuna, sardines, and anchovy.

Eat legumes and nuts. These beans provide the necessary fat that the brain needs to function well. Don’t underestimate these small munchies since these contain a long list of nutrients including protein, potassium, folate, phosphorous, and calcium. However, as much as possible, stay away from canned dried beans and salted nuts for these are high in sodium, which could harm the brain. To avoid sodium, choose unsalted nuts, drain canned beans thoroughly, or cook your own beans.

Eat lean meat. Resist the temptation of savoring poultry skin and opt to eat its lean ni cat instead. Animal fats contain saturated fat and iron which can speed up the production of free radicals which may damage the brain. Aside from damaging the brain, excessive intake of animal fat may also lead to certain heart diseases and cancer.

Choose tea over coffee. These two drinks are usually professionals’ best friends whenever they need to perk their minds. However, excessive drinking of the latter may do more harm to the brain after the caffeine high is done. On the other hand, while tea supplies the needed jolt, it also contains a large amount of antioxidants which can cut the risk of stroke by keeping blood vessels healthy. Studies also showed that there is a higher potency of antioxidants in black tea as compared to green tea. However, don’t be fooled by instant tea mixes and bottled tea for these have little or no antioxidant content.

Load up on potassium. Scientific evidences have shown that the rate of fatal stroke decreases by 40 rcent when there is a daily intake of im. Including bananas, apples, or uto your daily diet can do the trick.

Avoid excessive sugar. Excessive sugar intake speeds up the brain’s ageing process. Studies have shown a connection between high blood sugar with the risks of Alzheimer’s disease since the brain is not originally designed to hold too much sugar. Attention deficiency syndrome, poor attention span and hyperactivity may also result from unprocessed glucose.

Choose your oil. Hydrogenated vegetable oil and corn oil, o of the most famous kinds of cooking oil in the country can harm your brain. These processed oils may result in brain cells malfunction, which is why it is better to use canola oil, olive oil, or flaxseed oil.

Avoid sodium. With more and more processed food available ailable in the market, the risk of excessive sodium intake is higher. Sodium triggers the chances of getting high blood pressure and stroke.

Eat chocolate and drink red wine moderately. Surprisingly, chocolates contain polyphenols – antioxidants which are also found in tea, red wine, fruits, and vegetables. Dark chocolate has the most polyphenols while white chocolate has none. Drinking red wine, on the other hand, protects blood vessels, prevents inflammation, and boosts estrogen levels, which is necessary in memory retention.
