Mental fitness is just as important as physical fitness. The ability to think clearly and rationally is paramount in whatever we choose to do. Eating the right foods and adopting a calm lifestyle can help to improve brain function and increase your health. Too many people neglect their mental health and only seek help when they feel depressed and overwhelmed. It is better to manage stress before you reach this point.
Certain foods are bad for the brain:-
- Sugary drinks, including soda, sports drinks and energy drinks
- Refined carbs include sugar and highly processed grains such as white flour
- Highly processed foods high in trans fats, alcohol and fish high in Mercury
These have all been found to inhibit brain function. Smoked meats which contain nitrosamines, which cause the liver to produce fats that are toxic to the brain. Beer, most beers contain nitrites which have been linked to Alzheimer's. White foods including pasta, cakes, white sugar, white rice and its bread are also included.
I think moderation is the key here.
