Let’s talk about the #1 food for the brain.
It’s a misconception that the brain can’t regenerate—certain parts of the brain can regrow.
The top foods to avoid to support a healthy brain are:
1. Omega-6 fatty acids (soy oil, corn oil, canola oil, and cottonseed oil)
3. Refined carbs
The best food to support brain health is wild-caught salmon.
Wild-caught salmon can help enhance the brain in many ways, including supporting:
It may also be beneficial for those with mood disorders or brain inflammation. Consuming more wild-caught salmon may even help reduce insulin resistance, which is at the core of many brain problems.
The brain is the fattiest organ in the body. Omega-3 fatty acids are the healthy fats your brain needs. They’re the building blocks of your brain. Wild-caught salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids.
Wild-caught salmon is keto-friendly. It’s low-carb and has a good amount of protein and nutrients. But, to get these incredible benefits for the brain, be sure the salmon you choose is wild-caught and not farm-raised.
Try having your salmon with a kale salad topped with olive oil and unfortified nutritional yeast to take your brain health to the next level.
