7 Healthy Super Foods to Eat for Breakfast to Boost Your Brain Power

Did you know that many scientific studies have proven breakfast to be one of the most important meals of the day before, especially if you are preparing for working on important tasks such as an exam, or work presentation?

However, having an unhealthy breakfast would not be recommended. There are 7 foods that are considered to be healthier alternatives to sugar-encrusted cornflakes (which are undeniably very tasty, but not really good for our health), or sizzling bacon draped or deep fried in vegetable oil.

Research has shown that the following 7 foods may have proven benefits for boosting your brain power and cognitive abilities, especially if you are hoping to be productive during the day:

1. Eggs - Full of vitamin B and protein, essential for brain function and memory. Eggs also make you feel fuller for longer, so may also be great for weight loss.

2. Grains - Packed with vitamin B and is a form of carbohydrates providing fuel for the body as it is broken down into glucose.

3. Grapes - Contains antioxidants to protect our brain health, helping to prevent oxidative stress and inflammation.

4. Blueberries - Rich in antioxidants and facilitating learning, thinking and memory thank to the phytochemicals it contains.

5. Almonds - Laden with vitamin E which is an essential vitamin to help prevent cognitive decline which is part of the ageing process.

6. Oats - Contains iron, zinc, potassiym and B vitamins essential for general brain health. 7. Apples - Quercetin is the special antioxidant contained in apples, so eating a fresh apple with the skin on can help to maintain a sharp, acute mental ability. Most of the quercetin is found in the apple's skin so ensure to give it a wash before enjoying its succulent crunchiness.
