Six lifestyle choices to improve your brain health
- Low in sugar and moderate in starchy carbohydrates. This prevents the development of insulin resistance which can have a number of detrimental effects on cognitive function.
- Plenty of vegetables as they contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidant nutrients. The brain is very susceptible to oxidative stress by ‘free radicals’ and antioxidants provide protection from these.
- Healthy fats. The brain is 60% fat so adequate healthy dietary fats such as omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA are important.
