Memory and Energy Inducing Foods

Hey everyone! I know it is a couple days late, but for this week’s Tasty Tuesday I want to talk about memory and focus inducing foods. This idea originally came to me while I was in class on Tuesday night. I was falling asleep in class and trying my absolute hardest to stay awake! It got me thinking about if there were any foods that could help me be more energized and have better focus. This morning I looked up if there were any foods that did what I wanted and I discovered that there are quite a few!
The first food that helps with memory is beets. Beets are natural nitrates, meaning that they help boost blood flow to the brain. Not only do beets help with memory they also help with boosting your energy, which is great for those long days! The next food may be my favorite of the options! Blueberries will not help with short term memory, but it will help in the long run. There is Gallic acid in blueberries which helps protect against brain degeneration and stress! Another good food to help with memory is broccoli. Broccoli is rich in fibers which helps keep your brain focused and improves your memory. The last food that I am going to talk about is dark chocolate. It helps in the free flow of blood to your brain. A good thing to keep in mind with dark chocolate is that the darker it is the more health benefits you will receive. It is also best to get dark chocolate that is processed with at least 70 percent of cocoa.
I hope that all this was helpful to you, and that you learned a little something! Do you know of any other foods that help with memory and energy? Let me know in the comments below!
