Important Diet for the Brain



A diet high in fruit, vegetables, starch and protein, especially fish, is thought to be important for the brain. Soy protein is particularly useful. A good breakfast energizes the brain after an overnight fast, but avoid fatty food or coffee. Supplements for the brain include antioxidants such as vitamin E, together with beta carotene, co-enzyme Q10, ginkgo biloba and selenium.

Other vitamins which may be helpful in maintaining a healthy brain are the B vitamins. These include riboflavin, thiamin and niacin. Sources of these vitamins are flour, kidneys, liver, potatoes, yogurt and oily fish.

Some scientists suggest that high vitamin C consumption can reduce the risk of developing brain failure. This is due to the antioxidant effects of the vitamin on the arteries of the brain.
A good brain-boosting diet will be more effective if incorporated into a healthy lifestyle including good physical and mental exercises.
