5 Best Foods for Brain Health

5 Best Foods for Brain Health

1: Nuts
 
Basic food staples like nuts will provide a healthy dose of both protein and fat.
Nuts contain monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats to keep your arteries clear, as well as levels of precursors of serotonin to boost mood. One ounce a day is just right; more is fine, but remember to be careful of calorie overload - an ounce is about twelve walnuts or twenty-four almonds.
RealAge Difference: Men: 3.3 years younger, Women: 4.4 years younger

2: Fish
 
Salmon contains artery-clearing omega-3 fatty acids.
Fish (especially wild salmon, whitefish, tilapia, catfish, flounder and mahi mahi) contain artery-clearing omega-3 fatty acids. Serving size recommendation is 13.5 ounces a week (or three servings about the size of your fist).
RealAge Difference: 2.8 years younger

3: Soybeans
 
Soybeans like these can be made into a myriad of products.
Soybeans contain heart- and artery-healthy protein and fiber. The recommended serving is one cup a day.
RealAge Difference: 0.4 years younger

4. Tomato Juice and Spaghetti Sauce
 
Tomatoes can help keep your arteries young.
Tomato juice and spaghetti sauce contain folate, lycopene and other nutrients to keep arteries young. The recommended serving is 8 ounces a day of juice; 2 tablespoons of spaghetti sauce a day.
RealAge Difference: At least 1 year younger

5: Oils
 
Healthy fats like olive oil are good for your heart.
Olive oil, nut oils, fish oils, flaxseed and avocados contain heart-healthy mono-unsaturated omega-3 and omega-9 fats. Twenty-five percent of daily calories should be healthy fats.
RealAge Difference: 3.4 years younger
