"Ever wondered how your diet impacts your brain health? Here are six essential nutrients your brain loves:

 

1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

  • Found in fish, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts, omega-3s support brain health and cognitive function.

 

2. Antioxidant-Rich Foods:

  • Berries, dark chocolate, and leafy greens protect your brain from oxidative stress.

 

3. Protein Sources:

  • Lean proteins like poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, and legumes provide amino acids for neurotransmitter production.

 

4. Complex Carbohydrates:

  • Whole grains, fruits, and vegetables offer sustained energy and regulate blood sugar.
