5 Top Food Brain Boosters to Add To Your Shopping List

 

5 Top Food Brain Boosters - Ann Again and again Reviews

 

The foods you have in your pantry and fridge may be helping or hindering your brain. Dr. Christopher Calapai DO, a New York City Osteopathic Physician board certified in family and anti-aging medicine explains that the foods we choose have a lot to do with how sharp, attentive, alert, focused and happy we feel after they are consumed. Certain foods may taste great have additives in them that literally cloud our brains and leave us sluggish and dull headed. The opposite is also true. We can eat certain foods and feel a charge of mental energy and focus. We spoke to Dr. Calapai and got a quick list of foods that boost the brain. Check out 5 Top Food Brain Boosters to Add To Your Shopping List!

Brain Boosting Foods!

 

1 Nuts/Seeds:

Nuts and seeds are great sources of vitamin E.  Higher levels of vitamin E correspond with less cognitive decline as you get older. Add an ounce a day of walnuts, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, cashews, peanuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds or flax seed. Also un-hydrogenated nut butter such as peanut butter, almond butter, or tahini. Raw or roasted doesn’t matter, although if you’re on a sodium-restricted diet, buy unsalted nuts. “Adding nuts to your diet can aid in decreasing levels of enzymes that lead to protein plaques from forming and dementia. Nuts can also reduce brain inflammation, keep blood pressure low, a key for preventing stroke,” explains Dr. Calapai.

  1. Blueberries:

“I eat these daily and encourage patients to add blueberries to as many things as possible. They’re great on their own, added to a shake, to oatmeal, or even to a salad,” says Dr. Calapai. Blueberries are tasty and sweet and loaded with antioxidants. They’re packed with vitamin C, K and fiber and pack high levels of gallic acid, making them especially good at protecting our brains from degeneration and stress. “Studies show that eating blueberries can boost focus and memory for up to 5 hours,” adds Dr. Calapai

 

  1. Broccoli:

Broccoli is one of the best brain foods out there. Thanks to its high levels of vitamin K and choline which is a B vitamin know for aiding brain development keeps memory sharp and protects the brain from later decline with age. It’s also loaded with vitamin C. Just one cup provides you with 150 percent of your recommended daily intake. Its high-fiber levels make you feel full quickly, too. “People hear broccoli and roll their eyes thinking it’s bland a boring. Think of broccoli as a canvas ready to be painted with spices and flavors, offers Dr. Calapai. Try stir frying with a bit of olive oil, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Add a spoonful of orange or lemon juice and it gets this nice sweetness to it.

  1. Fish:

Salmon, mackerel, tuna, and other fish are rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). DHA seems to be very important for the normal functioning of neurons in the brain. Eating more fish often means eating less red meat and other forms of protein that are high in artery-clogging saturated fats. “People who are lacking in Omega 3’s can experience mood swings and feel edgy or negative. Omega 3’s have been known to be mood boosters in addition to enhancing focus and memory,” says Dr. Calapai.

  1. Avocado:

This creamy treat is also a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin E. Research suggests that foods rich in vitamin E—including avocado, which is also high in the antioxidant powerhouse vitamin C—are associated with a lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

Their customers have great things to say about them:

“I love this. My playroom looks like I hired a professional. I combined three different forest decal sets from evgieNev and it’s just beautiful. Now that they’re all up, I do wish I’d arranged some of them a little differently where I chose to place them on the wall, but overall, it looks fantastic. I have mildly textured walls and I found that I had better results when I applied the large decals with my hand alone versus using a squeegee.” ~ bkmathisen on Feb 4, 2017

Like Having A Spa In Your Home – HotelSpa® Shower Head

Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a luxurious bathroom?  To feel like you have a spa in your own home would make getting out of bed in the morning a lot easier! (For me, anyway.)  Recently I was able to give our shower a quick update, a super-duper quick little “remodel”, and my family is loving the results.  I installed the HotelSpa® European Designer 36-Setting Luxury 3 Way Chrome Face/Shower Combo Shower Head.  (And my family thanks me.)

HotelSpa® European 36-Setting Luxury Shower Head Review - Ann Again and again Reviews

You can use the two Showers Heads separately or use the shower head and handheld shower at the same time for a choice of 36 full and combined water flow patterns!  Whee!  We are a tall family, therefore we needed to add an extender rod to increase the height of the shower head.  With this addition I was concerned the water pressure might lessen however, there was no change in the water pressure, and the shower head works great.

The features of the HotelSpa® Designer Collection Ultra-Luxury 36-setting French Designer Combo include:

• Designed in France! Use each shower separately or both together
• Choose from 36 full and combined water flow patterns
• 7 Setting oversize 4.25 inch Chrome Face Shower Head
• 7 Setting oversize 4.25 inch Chrome Face Hand Shower
• 7 settings include: Rain, Power Spray, Massage, Rain/Spray, Rain/Massage, Eco Rain
• 3-zone Click Lever Dial with Rub-clean Jets
• Soft-Grip Rubber Dial Rim and Handle
• Patented 3-way Water Diverter with Anti-Swivel Lock Nut
• 5′ Super Flexible Stainless Steel Hose with Conical Brass Nuts for easy hand tightening
• Tools-free Installation. Connects in minutes to any standard overhead shower arm, no tools required
• Lifetime Limited Warranty

The mixture of sprays and jets feel great, and I like the fact that it also has a hand-held shower which makes for easier cleaning of the shower walls and tub.You can find the HotelSpa® Designer Shower Combo at Sears.  Recently it was on sale $79.99 29.99 smile for Shopify.
