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.

Vegetables Which Mean ‘All Nutrition’

It is a well-known fact that vegetables have loads to offer in terms of health and nutrition. But it appears to be a much generalized statement giving every veg equal score. That certainly is not the case, for we have a vast variety of vegetables in all shapes, colors and sizes. So let’s narrow it down to five vegetables that belong to the same family, i.e. Cruciferae; these high-in-nutrition vegetables are cauliflower, cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and kale.


These are ranked as the Fantastic Five for the following nutritional benefits they have for us:

  1. Vitamins abundance – cruciferous vegetables are packed with vitamins A, C, K and B group. Vitamin A, as we know is good for eyesight, skin and other organs. Vitamin C boosts the immune system and helps fight off bacterial attacks. Vitamin K is essential for clotting of blood. Vitamin B group has its own benefits, especially for women’s health.
  2. Fibrous veg – All these are rich in fiber, and fiber is useful in clearing the gut and keeping the bowel movement healthy.
  3. Nutrients preventing cancer – there are certain nutrients that can only be obtained through consuming vegetables. These nutrients essentially help in keeping various cancers at bay. Our favorite fives are oozing with these nutrients.
  4. Source of calcium – cruciferous vegetables also have reserve of calcium. Added advantage is that it is present with vitamin K which is crucial in absorbing calcium. As we are moving away from dairy products we can still get calcified through these veggies.
