What goes in your mouth matters to your brain.

Thinking that not having problems with your current weight is a valid reason for not paying attention to your diet?

Well, let me tell you that you are all wrong on that!

Is well-known that certain food has the power of change your mood for good or for bad; also of boosting your memory as well as increasing your capacity of being focused and keeping you alert, or even make you relax. Alcohol, bad fats, processed foods, smoking habit, excess of sugar and carbs; those all can damage brain cells, in some cases, causing permanent brain changes, and, of course, boost Alzheimer’s risk.

Based on that, take a look at the recommended lists below because it could help you to protect your brain by diminishing the cell inflammation related to the development of Alzheimer; also to support the efforts of brain-protective glial cells which are thought to be responsible for pushing toxins out of the brain.

  • Colorful veggies.
  • Dark berries.
  • Nuts.
