The activity of every organ in the body begins to diminish after a certain age. Just as is the case with looking younger by taking care of their skin, people can significantly increase their chances of maintaining a healthy brain.

“You are what you eat” has never been more true. Belly fat, the inability lose weight and metabolic syndrome are just the immediate result of careless eating habits. Your diet has many invisible effects such as thyroid problems, chronic heart conditions, diminished athletic abilities and persistent fatigue.

Brainpower is not inherited or given; it’s achieved at the supermarket and in your kitchen. Stay away from unhealthy foods, some of which actually include tuna as far as the brain is concerned, that slow cognitive function.

Nourish arguably the most important organ in the body for a longer, successful and more productive life the right way. Other bonuses include more energy, stable blood sugar levels, stronger bones, and lower risk of heart disease, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.

For every good food choice, there is a bad one. Sometimes it can even be only seemingly “healthy” when in fact it’s full of sugar and other toxins. Know what to swap in and out.
