health. Also almonds are high in riboflavin which is known to boost memory.

whole grains like cereals, barley, popcorn, wholegrain breads etc., because they can
boost your blood flow to the brain. Wholegrain cereals and breads are rich in vitamin
B6, an important brain vitamin.

brain function. Choline helps in both brain function and memory.

4.
Green Tea

memory and fights mental fatigue.

5.
Eggs
For only 70 calories eggs offer a very impressive nutritional profile. They are a great
source of high-quality proteins and rich in vitamins and minerals. Choline a nutrient
found in eggs can help boost the memory center in the brain.

6.
Spinach
Spinach slows down the effects of age-related declines in brain function and helps
protect the brain from oxidative stress. Spinach also helps with motor skills and
improves learning capacity.

7.
Yogurt
Yogurt, milk, cheese and other foods rich in calcium improve nerve function. Yogurt
also helps memory and alertness.

8.
Chocolate
Milk chocolate jump starts reaction time and impulse control. It has also been known
to improve verbal and visual memory. But, more is not better you have to indulge in
moderation.

9.
Tomatoes
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is an antioxidant that can help protect against
free-radical damage to cells, which is believed to be a primary factor in cases of
Dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.

10.
Broccoli

cognitive function.

Remember the old saying "Garbage in equals Garbage out," well that holds true here
too. Our brain has to have proper nourishment to create positive thought and good
overall health.
