    Hello Ladies

    The existence of the human body depends on oxygen. Every cell in our body including the brain cells need a steady supply of oxygen to stay alive and function properly.

    Oxygen and nutrients are carried in the blood stream. A human heart pumps the blood to various parts of the body. A healthy heart makes for a healthy brain.

    Regular physical exercise supply's the oxygen to the blood.

    Dehydration results in memory lapses. Drink plenty of water to rehydrate the body.

    Avoid starch laden or sugary foods for breakfast as they raise blood sugar levels suddenly high and followed by a sudden slump which is not good for the brain. Brain needs a steady supply of blood sugar levels which are provided by the foods like milk, egg, toast, cereals, sprouts, sandwich etc.

    Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids clear up the arteries and improve the blood circulation. Salmon, tuna, tofu, flax seeds and nuts come in this category.

    Antioxidant rich foods like leafy vegetables, citrus fruits, strawberries, green tea, tomatoes etc. help prevent the memory loss.

    Folic acid is needed for red blood cell formation. Some of the best foods for folic acid are oranges, broccoli, soyabeans, spinach, lentils, cereals etc.

    Regular nutrient supply is needed for memory. The B vitamins are crucial for feeding the brain.

    Vitamin B1 foods peanuts, soya bean, sesame seeds, brown rice, sunflower seeds etc.

    Vitamin B3 foods fish, eggs, pea nuts, meat, beans etc

    Vitamin B6 spinach, tuna, banana, garlic, cauliflower etc.

    Vitamin B12 fish, meat, mushrooms etc.

    These are some of the foods which help optimize brain health and sharpen the memory.

    Be wise and be happy.
