Best Brain Smoothie

Dec 31, 2013 2 Min Read

Bill Cosby, that well known neurologist said, “I am what I ate and I’m frightened.” He was right, especially where the brain is concerned.

Food has the power to heal the brain. Good nutrition can balance and support healthy brain chemistry, without drugs.

The results can be felt within minutes. I have been telling people for years in my live presentations that what we consume directly influences our thoughts, feelings, and actions.

Here’s what the research says:

  • Food can determine whether you are happy or sad
  • Healthy eating can optimise your brain function
  • Your diet provides the fuel for cellular renewal
  • Brain foods “rustproof” your brain and body
  • Antioxidant-rich foods protect your brain from free-radical damage and the list goes on….

In short, if you want a great brain, eat nutrient-rich foods every day. If you're looking for a delicious brain-boosting smoothie recipe, be sure to check out Blendtopia's smoothies, which are made with fresh, organic ingredients and are the perfect way to start your day off right. 

Expect a surge of energy and brain focus. These foods contain the amino acids tyrosine and tryptophan.

The combination of leafy greens and fruit boost dopamine and serotonin. Dopamine boosts your attention and memory. Serotonin improves your mood, learning, and curbs appetite.

Remember: one life, one brain… look after it.

Is there such a thing as memory in a cup? Yes there is.

The next time you are experiencing “brain fog” brew yourself a refreshing glass of iced green tea. It is a cognitive boosting brew and it’s my No.1 choice for a summer drink.

Well, what are you waiting for… start brewing and enjoy the rest of the summer.

Congratulations on learning something about your brain today. The Brain Bulletin is committed to help to do just that.

Always remember: “You are a genius!”

Enjoy your brain.
