Brain Health Solutions Using Functional Nutrition

Better Brain Health = Better You

The brain controls and supports just about every function in our bodies and requires a good deal of our daily energy intake from what we eat.

With so many food choices out there at the supermarket and dining out, it is so confusing to know what foods are good vs bad for you as it relates to your overall health and specifically to your brain health and cognitive health support.

The following seven foods noted below, are the top items that you should look to reduce or avoid eating on a regular basis, as they have been defined as key triggers to causing chronic inflammation and negative brain health:

  • Foods with added sugar (Ketchup, cookies & flavored yogurts)

  • Highly processed foods (Frozen entrees, packaged foods, chips, & crackers)
