Top Foods for Your Brain

What you eat doesn’t just affect your physical health, but also your brain and memory. Here are some amazing foods that you can eat to boost your brainpower and memory.

Whole Grains

The brain obtains its energy in the form of glucose which is derived from carbohydrates. Our brains need energy to focus and concentrate which it gets from carbohydrates. Healthy ways to acquire complex carbohydrates with low Glycemic Index (GI) is to eat whole-wheat products, granary bread, bulgur, oats, beans, wild rice, barley, and soy.

Fish

The most useful omega-3 fats are found naturally in fish as Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Salmon, trout, mackerel, herring, sardines, pilchards and kippers all contain EPA and DHA. Low DHA levels can cause dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and memory loss whereas adequate levels of EPA and DHA can assist in lower stress and aid in the production of serontin, the feel good chemical.

Green Leafy Vegetables

Now we know why Popeye liked spinach so much. Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, turnip, kale, romaine, collard greens, mustard greens, and broccoli contain a lot of folic acid and healthy vitamins. Shortages in folate and B vitamins are believed to aggravate depression, lethargy and sleeplessness. So, have green leafy vegetables in order to have a healthy brain.

Berries

Latest research has shown that berries such as blueberries, strawberries, and acai berries contain antioxidants and other phytochemicals and have been shown to improve learning, reasoning, and recollection. They may also stop mental deterioration in its track by preserving the brain’s natural mechanism. They also aid in averting memory loss which comes with age.

So enjoy these healthy foods and sustain a strong brain!

EDITOR’S CHOICE – Neoflavonoids as Prospective Compounds Against Parasitic Neglected Tropical Infections and Human Immunodeficiency Virus – Current Bioactive Compounds

Journal: Current Bioactive Compounds 

Author(s): Gláucio B. Saldanha, George L.S. Oliveira, José C.C.L. da Silva, Maria C.P. Oliveira, Ana P.S.C.L. da Silva*, Juceni P. de Lima David

Abstract:

Background: Neoflavonoids comprise a group of compounds that have a C6-C3-C6 carbon skeleton and that naturally occur in higher plants from families Clusiaceae, Leguminosae, Rubiaceae, Passifloraceae, Asteraceae and Rutaceae.

Objective: Neoflavonoids have drawn great interest lately due to their pharmacological and biochemical properties found in vitro and in vivo studies, which is attributed to the pattern of substitutions found in their basic chemical structure.

Methods: This review was prepared by analyzing articles selected from Science Direct, Scopus, Pub Med, Web of Science and SciFinder.
Results: Among other pharmacological activities, in vitro and in vivo studies have highlighted these compounds as promising bioactive molecules in the treatment of some parasitic neglected tropical infections (NTIs) such as malaria, leishmaniasis and American trypanosomiasis (Chagas Disease). Neoflavonoids have also showed activity against HIV-1 (human immunodeficiency virus type 1), and have been used to develop new molecules for the treatment of HIV/AIDS.
Conclusion: Therefore, a more intensive research of neoflavonoids can provide inputs to discover and develop alternative therapies from new bioactive molecules. Thus, this review summarizes the results of studies involving neoflavonoids and their derivatives with therapeutic implications in the treatment of NTIs and HIV.
