Just like the body as a whole, the brain requires optimal nutrition throughout all stages of life. Many factors such as a lack of nutrients, age, illness, medication, stress, insufficient sleep, sedentary lifestyle and poor gut health can affect how our brain functions. As a consequence, many people suffer brain fog, poor concentration, low mood or feeling anxious; and cognitive decline is on the increase.
Nutrients particularly important for brain health include omega-3 fatty acids (the brain is 60% fat) and DHA in particular, which contributes to normal brain function. Other important nutrients include those which contribute to the normal functioning of the nervous system, psychological function, energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of homocysteine – which includes the B-complex vitamins. In addition, adequate antioxidants are important, for example, vitamins C, E, zinc and selenium.
