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 and cognitive health.

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:

  • Foods with added sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Processed foods
  • Cured meats
  • Unhealthy fats
  • Refined carbs
  • Sugar substitutes

Once the chronic inflammatory pathway has started, it has been linked to causing many negative health symptoms & conditions such as:

  • Brain fog
  • Cognitive decline
  • Memory disorders
  • Increased risk for depression & anxiety

Over time, if these are not addressed, they can lead to mild cognitive impairment, dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The good news is that you can prevent this, and the key to prevention is to recognize what foods you should avoid and  define what foods you should eat.

In doing this, you’ll be providing your body with the proper fuel & nutrition that it needs to thrive on all levels and have you feeling like you used to.
