From regular aging to genetic predisposition – have you ever wondered what you can do to help keep your mind sharp and at it’s best? Although our genes do play a role in if we acquire certain degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, the brain is a powerful organ and feeding it the optimum fuel or “brain food” is proven to keep it performing at it’s optimum level.

Think the choices you make in your diet only affect your waistline? Think again. Research has shown that eating fish at least once per week can slow memory loss by aging by 10%. Fatty fish, like salmon, tuna, trout and sardines, are rich in omega -3 fatty acid which is very important for heart health but also for reducing the risk of acquiring Alzheimer’s disease and depression. Try eating a 4-ounce serving of salmon a couple of times a week for optimum protection or try trout or herring if you are not a salmon fan. Make sure to include these brain foods to your diet for their strong mental and memory protective benefits.
