Meet the noble avocado and learn how it helps your brain to function well. There’s no other fruit like it!
We all know to skip fast foods, eat our veggies and ditch the soft drink if we want to keep our waist lines trim, but what do you eat if you want to focus on brain health?
Some brain healthy foods are blueberries, walnuts, salmon, beans, dark chocolate and our darling Avocado among others.
If you find yourself struggling to keep up in work meetings and forgetting your keys, it may be time to ditch your current diet and replace it with brain power foods.
Avocados are proven to be bursting with “good fats” called monosaturated fats which promote blood flow; a highly beneficial function to the brain.
They are packed with folate, vitamins B, C and E making it a great food to lower blood pressure.
Avocados help to improve overall cognitive function especially when it comes to memory concentration required by study.
It protects you from stroke by preventing blood clots from forming in the brain.
The healthy fats in avocados help keep your brain cell membranes flexible. The avocado leaf has also been proven to have potential to reduce seizures and childhood epilepsy.
Lastly, avocados keep your sugar level steady, keep your skin glowing and your cholesterol level low. Then there’s the fact that they have the highest protein and lowest sugar content out of any fruit. Isn’t that fantastic?
Make them a daily part of your diet to enjoy all the benefits it is brimming with. You can do this by adding it to your sauces, dips, smoothies and baked treats…yummy!
