Food Enhances Intelligence!

We have always known the fact that food is essential for keeping us alive and healthy. But this is a general statement, so the scientists have been on the mission to understand how food keeps us healthy – both physically and mentally. Keeping our focus on mental health we need to understand how food and nutrition keeps our brain healthy.


Recently, scientists from the University of Illinois studied the Mediterranean diet and found out that the oils and nuts carry nutrients that are very good for the brain. The dorsal networks in the brain is the key area concerned with intelligence and cognitive thinking. The Mediterranean diet includes nutrients called monounsaturated fatty acids MUFAs that the researchers found, were responsible for building the networks and enhancing thinking abilities.

The study is just the beginning and has loads to offer for scientists as they progress in this direction.

An Apple A Day Could Keep Obesity Away


Scientists at Washington Province University have concluded that non digestible chemical compound in apple may help prevent disorder associated with obesity. The written report, mutation to be the first to assess this compound in apple cultivars grown in the Pacific Ocean Northwest, appears in October’s print edition of the journal Food Chemistry.

“We know that, in general, apples are a good source of this non digestible chemical compound but there are differences in smorgasbord,” says a well known intellectual nourishment scientist, the study’s booster cable researcher. “Results from this study will help consumer to discriminate between apple multifariousness that can aid in the battle against obesity.”

Despite being subjected to chewing, abdomen acid and digestive enzyme, these compounds remain intact when they orbit the colon.
