We’ve all had days where our thoughts are just too clouded and strained to be able to get anything done. Ever just sat at your work desk or in a lecture hall, just staring off into space, unable to focus or concentrate? Or a day where you just couldn’t be bothered to get anything done? What if you could remain alert more often and were able to focus on a task on command?
Enter ‘brain foods’: snacks and ingredients that affect our concentration levels and productivity in positive ways, while having the added plus of being great stress-reducers.
Our brains use up to 20% of our bodily energy each and every day. By adding more foods, vitamins, and nutrients catered to brain health and function to our diets, we can begin to form a plan of attack against any nutrition-induced mental lethargy and boost our overall energy levels.
