Knowledge

There are many conditions that can impact cognitive performance and cause brain fog or low concentration. Some of the most common are: 

Once we identify the root cause of cognitive issues, we apply personalized nutrition counseling to support your wellness journey. Read on to uncover our favorite brain-boosting foods and supplements we incorporate into our patients’ nutrition programs. 

Eat your way to boosted brain function

It’s important to eat a variety of whole foods, but there are several in particular that your brain loves. Research suggests that the best foods for your brain also support your heart and blood vessels.  

Incorporate more of these foods into your daily diet: 

  • Green, leafy vegetables: Greens like kale, spinach, and broccoli are rich in brain-friendly nutrients like vitamin K, lutein, folate, and beta carotene.
  • Fatty fish: Healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids and unsaturated fats have been linked to lower blood levels of a protein that forms damaging clumps in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients. Try to eat salmon, cod, canned light tuna, or pollack twice a week.
  • Other good fats: If you don’t like fish, consider an omega-3 supplement or eat more omega-3 sources like flaxseeds, avocados, and walnuts.
  • Berries: Delay memory decline with healthy, flavorful berries. Flavonoids, natural plant pigments that give berries their distinct colors, help improve memory.
  • Tea & coffee: Moderate amounts of caffeine have been linked to stronger memory retention.
  • Walnuts: Again, with the omega-3 fatty acids! Walnuts are high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which helps lower blood pressure and protect your arteries.
  • Complex carbohydrates: Cracked wheat, chickpeas, whole-grain couscous, and lentils are high in memory-boosting vitamin B and are good complex carbohydrates to incorporate into your diet. Since your brain cells run on glucose, which is derived from carbohydrates and not stored in the brain, it needs a steady supply of glucose. 

We also recommend supplements to boost levels of vital minerals and nutrients in your body, including:  

  • NT Balance D: Low mood and low focus symptoms from low dopamine 
  • NT Balance – GS: Anxiety, poor sleep, low mood, and sadness from low GABA or serotonin 
  • Gabatone: Panic attacks, insomnia, and anxiety from heightened fight or flight sensations 
  • Nevaton® Forte: Anxiety, mood swings, low mood from imbalanced nervous system 

If you experience cognitive issues like brain fog or low concentration, let’s get to the root of the problems together.  

The Infinity Way is a great way to start understanding your unique brain makeup. We perform a neurotransmitter test with results & insights to guide your wellness journey. Start by scheduling your first appointment today to get back to balanced.
