Food works like fuel to regulate your energy and mood and ensure you’re focused throughout the day. We’ve all probably noticed that when we concentrate on putting the right foods into our body it makes a massive difference in our mental clarity and memory.
Rather than fuelling up with foods that make you sluggish and tired, enjoying foods that boost your focus are a great way to get the most out of your day.
Here’s a list of some of our top foods to help you boost your memory and improve focus:
These delightful little fruits are shown to boost concentration and memory. Packed full of antioxidants, which work to increase and stimulate the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain, blueberries work to not only improve focus but also protect against cancer, heart disease and a broad range of other illnesses.
A relaxing beverage, green tea includes caffeine and l’theanine both of which work to improve and boost focus. While we all probably know the features of caffeine, l’theanine works to increase alpha-wave activity, which works with the properties of caffeine to improve focus and accuracy.
Leafy green vegetables
A favourite for all balanced diets, leafy green vegetables are packed full of antioxidants as well as carotenoids, which help to boost and improve your brain power significantly. The folic acid in leafy green vegetables also works to improve mental clarity and focus.
