It takes a lot of energy to think. In fact the average adult brain uses a whopping 20 per cent of your daily calories, which is much more than any other organ in the body. It’s preferred source of fuel is glucose, which comes from carbohydrate-rich foods like wholegrains, including rye, oats, and brown rice. These foods are high in fibre making them slower digesting, which ensures a steady supply of energy to your brain keeping you mentally alert throughout the day.
- Want a long, happy, successful life? A good place to start is by feeding your brain (literally).
- Walnuts, wholegrains, B vitamins, berries, oily fish and pumpkin seeds are among the best foods for brain health.
- These foods have nutrients that have been tied to everything from staying alert to protecting against dementia.
