What you choose to eat can be one of the most influential variables you can control when it comes to your brain health. Eating many fruits and vegetables each day along with whole grains and lean meats is the greatest way to feel your best.
Chicken is a great source of vitamins B6, B12 and choline which all play an important role in brain health and neuroprotection. Winter squashes like butternut squash are high in beta carotene, vitamin C, folic acid, antioxidants and niacin which offer a lot of brain health benefits. Diets rich in whole grains, like quinoa, are associated with higher levels of brain function.
