Whether you're having trouble concentrating at work or you just need an extra mental kick to make it through your exams, there are many foods and nutrients that can improve your memory, concentration and focus. The brain is truly an incredible organ. It regulates thousands of complex functions, both conscious and unconscious, and usually at lightening-speed. Your brain is constantly working, even while you sleep, so it’s no wonder it requires so much energy. Weighing in at only 2% of your body weight, the brain consumes a whopping 20% of your caloric intake, making nutrition an important factor for proper brain functioning. If you are looking to boost your brainpower, here are my favorite nutrients to help keep you on your A-game.
For those of you about to write exams, I wish you the best of luck and remember: eat and sleep to build a better brain!
