Think about it.

Seeds, nuts, beans & eggs are all tiny nutrient-dense whole foods that when allowed to grow & flourish create a plant, tree, or chicken.

Each of these contains the protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins & minerals needed to take the base cellular information & transform them into new life & keep the cycle of life going.

It’s these nutrients that not only allow the plant or chicken to thrive, but when you eat them, they have amazing superpowers too.

As it relates to cognition (memory, concentration, focus & attention), seeds are going to be one of your new best friends to help your overall health.

Seeds come in many different varieties, & as I always promote, diversity is key to your health.

As eating different seeds will provide a wide & balanced array of nutrients to promote cellular energy production & management.

Here’s my top list of seeds & their benefits:

1). Flax seeds: High in omega-3 alpha lipoic acid (ALA) & soluble/insoluble fiber.  Both have been found to support lowering oxidative stress, which in turn lessens inflammation

2). Chia seeds: High in ALA, protein & soluble/insoluble fiber. Its fiber acts as both a pre & probiotic to support gut health, which in turn produces serotonin, which helps with your mood & focus

3). Hemp seeds: Highest in protein & contain an optimal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids at 2:1, which has been denoted to prevent inflammation, which in turn supports your cognition

4). Sunflower seeds: High in vitamin E, selenium & choline, which help regulate acetylcholine a key neurotransmitter to support optimal brain health & memory

5). Pumpkin seeds: An excellent source of magnesium, zinc, copper & iron, all of which are important minerals for brain health.

Poppy seeds, sesame seeds, & pine nuts are three other great seeds to add to your dietary regime too.

The best ways to eat seeds are:

So go ahead & start adding seeds to your daily regime to reap all their amazing anti-inflammatory & cognitive benefits.
