Brain boosting foods

Therefore foods rich in these nutrients must be incorporated in your diet to boost your memory and brain power.
This leafy green is packed with nutrients like folate, vitamin E, and vitamin K which prevent dementia. Just 11/2 cup of cooked spinach packs a third of the folate and five times the amount of vitamin K you need in a day. Spinach is also high in potassium, which helps to maintain the electrical conductivity of the brain. This conductivity helps produce fast signals between neurons that make us think more clearly and respond more quickly.
Include: Take at least 1 cup of spinach in a day, in the form of porial, gravies, sambar in your meal.
