Foods that help improve memory and concentration


Chocolate (dark)

Extra dark chocolate is high in antioxidants and cocoa flavanols, which help keep brain cells healthy. It also contains fiber, which aids in reducing inflammation in the brain and preventing cognitive deterioration.

Berries

Antioxidants, phytonutrients, fiber, vitamins, and minerals abound in berries contain nutrients which aid in memory retention, while the fiber component feeds gut microorganisms, reducing brain inflammation.


It is recommended that you should pick from a variety of red, blue, and black berries. Strawberries, for example, are high in flavonoids, which may help slow cognitive decline; blueberries include various flavonoids connected to oxidative stress prevention; and blackberries are high in antioxidants, which support brain cell health.

Eating a range of colorful berries can help prevent neurodegenerative disorders like dementia by reducing anxiety feelings.


Turmeric and black pepper

Turmeric, which is one of the main ingredients in curry powder, contains a molecule called curcumin, which is the key to its brain-boosting properties.

Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory.Consuming it has proved to help lessen anxiety symptoms and slow cognitive deterioration.

Turmeric is beneficial on its own, but when mixed with black pepper, the benefits can be amplified. A pinch of black pepper in turmeric,activates the curcumin and boosts its bioavailability to the brain and body.

Turmeric and black pepper can be added to a robust rice dish, a side of potatoes, a golden milk latte, or some oatmeal to add to your nutrition.


Leafy greens

Folate, a B vitamin that supports neurodevelopment and neurotransmitter function, is found in leafy greens, which is a staple in brain-healthy diets.Deficiency in folate has been linked to increased depression symptoms as well as cognitive aging.


Fermented foods

Eating fermented foods helps improve our gut health may therefore increase our cognitive performance.

Large amounts of fermented foods, on the other hand, can cause bloating. If you feel nauseous, reduce your intake until your gut and body acclimate.
