How Can We Keep Our Brain Healthy?

Answer: Eat. Sleep. Hydrate. Exercise.

About 20 percent of the calories we consume are utilized by the brain. Besides the constant need for energy, our complex neural systems require a vast amount of nutrients to keep them churning full speed ahead. This is especially true as we age and are more susceptible to cognitive decline.

Asides from vitamin B12 and iron, there is a plethora of antioxidants and other micronutrients that help the brain function at peak levels. These nutrients are sorely missing from processed foods. If you want to keep your brain healthy and happy, make sure to eat real foods.

Here are some tips to help your brain be at its best.

  • Get moving: physical exercise is not only important for your body’s health; it also helps your brain stay sharp.
  • Get enough sleep. This not only ensures you are thinking clearly, it lessens the chance of you eating junk food.
  • Drink enough water.Lack of water to the brain can cause numerous symptoms including problems with focus, memory, brain fatigue and brain fog, as well as headaches, sleep issues, anger, and depression.
  • Get your vitamin D, essential for proper brain functioning, either from the sun, mushrooms, fish oil, or supplements.
  • Reduce your consumption of sugars and refined carbs. Although the brain is partially responsible for the addiction we have to sugars, in this age of plenty, most people overdose and damage their brain’s health.
  • Avoid inflammatory fats and focus on good fats from avocado, fish, nuts, and seeds.
  • Eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables. Each color represents a different set of antioxidants. Berries, especially, are very high in antioxidants.
  • Eat an abundance of berries: the polyphenol compounds in the fruits activate the brain’s natural “housekeeping” mechanism, clearing out stored toxins.
  • Add spices to your life. Fresh or dried, many spices and herbs have very high antioxidant values.

This Independence Day, What are YOU doing for freedom?

Join the Freedom Revolution This 4th of July!

Eagle-American-Flag“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We the People have a wide range of things in common, regardless of who we voted for in the last election.
Everyone wants to be healthy (and their children and grandchildren).
Everyone wants to have honest labels on food.
Everyone wants to be safe from toxic pesticides, herbicides and agricultural poisons.
Everyone wants the opportunity for economic prosperity in a fair and just system where hard work and innovation is rewarded.
Everyone is tired of corruption in high places.

However, “Everyone” isn’t willing to work for these freedoms, to commit, to accept nothing less. Are you?

Our world is waking up to a Revolution. Awareness, truth and liberty are spreading globally. We are turning the tide of sickness and mediocrity in our nation. WE are part of this revolution, are you?

Our GenYers or Millennials are demanding high values for their lives: their Movement is all about Meaning, Mobility and Money (sufficient $$ to satisfy the first two Ms). These are OUR values. Are they yours?

WE are working to empower and enable others to enjoy all these freedoms; to OWN YOUR HEALTH & OWN YOUR LIFE.

Learn more about how WE are doing this at OnEaglesWings.tv … let us know if you want to be a part of OUR freedom revolution.

Happy Independence Day!
