We’ve already figured out that fish, egg yolks, legumes, nuts, meat and vegetables are part of a healthy diet. (This is assuming, of course, that you’re not deep frying everything, ha!)
As for more on the “why” these are good foods, consider choline.
Feeding Health Food To Your Neurotransmitters
Neuro what? Nerve Transmitters, that’s what! This is the signaling system in your brain, and if the signal ain’t getting out, the memory is shot.
Neurotrasmitters send the signals that jump from one brain cell to another, and to do that they need a vital brain chemical called acetylcholine. To make this essential chemical, the body needs a closely related nutritent called choline.
Where In The World Is The Choline?
Where do you find this much needed choline? In phosphatidylcholine (PC). How’s that for a mouthful? Don’t worry, all you need to remember is that once again, you need to be eating:
- egg yoks
- meat and
Vitamins for Manufacturing Brain Food
But you’re only half-way there! Your body needs certain B vitamins and vitamin C to turn the PC into the needed choline. Here’s more health foods that make good brain food.
For vitamin C, chow down on
- peppers – red, yellow & green
- citrus fruits and
And for vitamin B, eat some of these
- sweet potatoes
- tuna and
Of course, there are other sources for these needed vitamins!
Eat those whole grains, lean proteins, good fats, vegetables and fruits, and your brain will remember to thank you!
