Greens such as kale, collard greens, spinach and broccoli are all good sources of vitamin E and folate. Eating greens helps lower levels of an amino acid in the blood. High levels of the amino acid is linked to the death of nerve cells in the brain so make sure to get your greens!
Many fish including mackerel, tuna and salmon are rich in heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids. Fatty acids are important to the normal functioning of neurons in the brain.
The last one is probably the most fun out of the list, red wine! Red wine not only boasts antioxidant rich berries but is also linked to a reduction in Alzheimer’s when consumed moderately. That’s something we can definitely get behind!
