Top 5 Nutrients for healthy cognitive function
In recent years there has been a lot of discussion around diet and exercise for a healthy cognitive function.
The brain needs a lot of energy relative to the rest of the body. Thus, the mechanisms that are involved in the transfer of energy from foods to neurons are likely to be fundamental to the control of brain function and ensuring a healthy cognitive function.
Top 5 nutrients for a healthy cognitive function are listed below:
- Omega 3 fatty acids- you get them from Fish(salmon), krill, chia seed and flax seed.
- Flavonoids- from Green tea and dark chocolate also from red wine.
- Curcumin from Turmeric
- Saturated fat from coconut oil and ghee (please understand the concept of LCHF)
- Vitamin B, E and D
Apart from this having a good night sleep, practising mindfulness and having a good social network provides extra benefit in keeping the cognitive function good.
Hope this information can get you started on a healthy cognitive function journey.
