According to Jim Kwik, the author of our Superbrain program, “Feedback is the breakfast of superheroes”. No matter the nature of the feedback, we learn and we grow as people, thus unlocking the full potential of our minds. But this text is not about that kind of breakfast. Here we are dealing with a rather physical topic so very important for our overall health. The power foods which can boost our learning capacity.

Since there are power foods for our body, which boost our body’s muscle mass and improve our health condition, there are also power foods which improve the working of our brain and memory as well. Let us see just what types of food can be considered power food for the brain.

What Is The Most Powerful Food?

Remember when your parents told you that eating all those green vegetables and fish is good for your health. And you thought they were simply trying to trick you into eating those boring foods? Well, they were right. Fruits and vegetables and fish are exactly the type of power food you need.

Not only do they make you healthier, they even improve the workings of your brain, giving you more focus and energy. They are rich with vitamins and other chemicals and elements which induce higher efficiency of our brain activity and cognitive abilities.

Some of the power foods we will discuss you’ve already been using for quite a while, either as a meal or in the form of a beverage, and you probably are not even aware of it!

Which Food Is The Best For Your Memory And Brain Power?

Power food for the brain, as we can see, comes in many different shapes and sizes. We’ll speak about the types of power food which is the easiest to come by. The best power food for you includes, but it is by no means limited to, the following items:

1. Eggs

Eggs are considered to be some of the typical types of power food, both for your body in general and for your brain. They’re amazingly rich in various types of nutrients, some of them being vitamins B6 and B12.

However, the reason they’re on this list is that they have a large percentage of choline inside them. Choline is a very important micronutrient. Our body uses it to create acetylcholine, which plays an important role in the regulation of our memory. Choline in eggs is stored within the yolk.

2. Fatty Fish

When it comes to power foods for the brain, fatty fish takes the cake. This type of fish is rich with omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for our brains. More than half of our brain mass is made exactly from this type of fat.

By eating fatty fish, we learn and memorize things more efficiently, but we also become more resistant to Alzheimer’s decease and are less likely to suffer from depression and have learning issues.

3. Coffee

If you love to start your day with a good old cup of coffee, you’re already using a type of power food. Or a power beverage, to be more precise.

The caffeine in coffee may give you an energy rush, especially in the morning when you need to get up for another long day at work, but it also makes you more attentive, sharpens your focus and induces the production of serotonin. That’s why that first cup of coffee early in the morning feels so good.

As a bonus feature, the combination of caffeine and antioxidants lessen the chances for the appearance of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s deceases.

4. Dark Chocolate

This undisputed queen of all things sweet is actually a great power food for our brain. The high concentrations of the special kind of flavonoids (a type of plant-based antioxidants) enhance the brain centers that control our mnemonic and learning processes, and reduce the effects of the age-induced weakening of our mental capacities.

5. Broccoli

If you always wiggled your way out eating veggies, then you’ve made a terrible mistake. Broccoli may be the least favourite type of vegetables for some of us, but it’s overflowing with antioxidants and vitamin K. Vitamin K plays the key role in forming a special type of fat called the sphingolipids, which can be found within our neurons.

The high concentration of vitamin K and sphingolipids in our neural cells protect our brain from harm.

These are some of the best types of power food out there. They are easy to find, and not at all expensive. But you don’t need to rely solely on them – have some blueberries from time to time, relax and enjoy a nice cup of green tea, and reap all the benefits of a balanced, healthy life.
