1. Processed and Junk Food:
Gets You High: The brain has a reward system that hardwires us to engage in behaviours we find pleasurable – like eating tasty food. When we eat junk the reward circuits activate and release the chemical dopamine.
2. Mediterranean Diet: The Mediterranean diet is one of the planet’s healthiest options. This diet can reduce heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic diseases, including dementia.
3. Carbohydrates: The brain accounts for about 2% of our body weight, but consumes almost 20% of glucose-derived energy. This means that nutrition is key for brain function.
4. Vitamins and Minerals: Vitamin B, C, D & E plus magnesium are all essential in brain health and development.
5. Fats: Specific fats are very important to the brain as they are a key component in the structure of cell membranes.
7. Probiotics: Probiotics are the bacteria that live in your gut and keep your body healthy. They are the key to maintaining balance between good and bad bacteria.
8. Caffeine: Caffeine is widely accepted to be one of the most commonly used psychoactive substances worldwide. It is found in a wide variety of foods and drinks.
