Brain fog can feel overwhelming if it happens on a regular basis. To boost your brain and get it functioning at the optimal performance you will want to introduce foods that are high in antioxidants, proteins, and healthy fats like omega three fatty acids. Here are seven foods that will not only boost your brain power but we are pretty sure you will enjoy them.
1.) Avocados are loaded with vitamin K and folate which support memory and concentration improvement.
2.) Blueberries have high levels of gallic acid which provide protection against brain degeneration and stress.
3.) 70% Dark Chocolate contains flavanols that help improve blood flow to the brain and heart.
4.) Olive Oil, cold pressed extra virgin contains polyphenols may improve learning and memory.

These are easy to find foods, which are not only delicious but support brain health! However, if you eat most of these foods or feel like you do eat healthy but still suffer from brain fog, you may actually have a food allergy or food intolerance. Most people would not suspect the culprit of brain fog to be a food allergy, but it most certainly can be the case. If you have tried the healthy route without positive results, you should consider our Food Allergy (IgG & IgE & Basic Gluten) Test Kit. It tests for up to 184 foods for a delayed food reaction and 25 immediate food reactions, plus a gluten panel.
