** MisterHerbs says "There is a simple herb made from coconut that sharpens the brain and keeps you mentally alert all day, and without side effects as well. What you need is the fleshy part of the immature coconut. You simply blend the fleshy part of the immature coconut, add coconut water to the blend as well as 3 tablespoons of honey. Blend well and take half a glass 3 times daily.
The brain becomes much more relaxed, refreshed and sharper."**
Nuts and seeds.
Nuts and seeds are a great source of vitamin E which has been scientifically proven helps protect cell membranes from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Each day you should try to get an ounce of either walnuts, hazelnuts, Brazil buts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, sunflower seeds, or flax seeds
This is another food source that helps reduce oxidative damage to the brain and can also reduce the on-set of age related neuro- dysfunction such as Alzheimers or dementia. Research has shown that rats that consumed blueberries demonstated showed an increase in learning ability and motor skills.
Fish like salmon have a high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids which are essential for brain function. Other options for 'oily fish' that contain omega 3 include sardines and herring.
Avocado is known as a 'monounsaturated' which is known to promote healthy blood flow. And when we have healthy flood flow, then we have a healthy brain. Since avocados also lower blood pressure, then your predisposition to hypertension also lowers which is important since hypertension affects brain function. Avocados are high in calorie so it's recommended you only add ¼ avocado to your meals per day.
Beans help stabilize blood sugar levels. The brain relies on glucose for fuel but it cannot store glucose so is dependent on a steady supply which beans can supply. Try lentils, blackbeans and broad beans.
