Good day, everyone here at livegreaterhealth how’s your day going for me just doing some everyday work on my website.
If you’re business-minded today then I hope that’s what you are doing too.

A couple of things I would like to talk about today is our business and how to stay focused on our task ahead especially if we are bloggers.

We need to exercise our minds daily by doing what it takes to keep it strong, healthy, and alert.

Eating the things that are healthy for our brain and give it the right nutrients to keep our brain in optimal health.

So grab you a Green Tea in the morning with a banana or some fruits and berries for a quick snack to get your brain moving.

We have to feed our brains the right stuff to keep it sharp and alert.

Down below is a list of brain foods that will be good to start the morning off right.

What is the Brain?

Wikipedia says the brain is…
an organ that serves as the center of the nervous system. The human brain is located in the head, close to the sensory organs for senses such as hearing, smelling, and vision.

The brain is the most complex organ in the human body. In a human, the cerebral cortex contains billions of neurons. These neurons are connected by synapses. These neurons communicate with one another by means of long protoplasmic fibers called axons, which carry trains of signal pulses called action potentials to distant parts of the brain or body targeting specific recipient cells.

To keep the brain healthy it has to be fed the right foods and what we don’t get in foods we have to use supplements.

Knowledge about the Brain

75 percent of the brain is composed of water

It has 90 to 100 billion neurons

The human brain uses about 20 percent of the bodies energy

  1. Thanks for the great post! I am always looking for ways to stay healthy and keeping our brains healthy is important. I eat many nuts, avocados, and dark chocolate so I was really glad to see these were on the list. I was really amazed to find out that our brains are not fully developed till age 25.

    • Thank you for the comment. Yes these foods do help with brain function as there is several others that are not mentioned. It’s a good thing that are brains take a while to fully develops. It gives us more time help it get stronger.

  2. Hi Fred,

    Great post. Yes its funny how all the functions and organs of our body perform better when we eat a mainly plant based diet. And yet so many people choose to continue putting junk and processed foods into their bodies. We have so much illness and mental issues around the world and I have no doubt much of it in fact most of it is caused by diet.

    Thanks for another thought provoking post.

    • Thanks for the comment. All our organs take common foods or use to be common foods we’ve got away from them these days. Getting back to the regular garden foods like when this world was a healthier one before fast foods took over. Then the grocery store filled up with processed foods that the world came to love while killing ourselves.

  3. Hello Fred,

    I enjoyed reading this blog about the brain. Feeding the brain with the right foods is essential, that’s obvious. Even if most of us know what is healthy to eat, we do not always act like it. The brain wants energy easy and fast, so often we do not listen to our inner voice and eat something that’s healthy. By starting the day with healthy and energy-rich food, we have the strength to do our work and our willpower is stronger. Then we can withstand the temptations better throughout the day.

    Thanks for sharing the list of foods for the brain, these are delicious foods.

  4. Very informative and useful post! I try to eat healthy overall but never thought about the brain health. Thank you for the reminder.

    • Thank you for the comment. The brain one that gets ignored until there’s a problem. then much too often it’s too late. So I like using these posts as reminders.

  5. OMG, I am so thankful for this post. I have been putting extra effort into caring for my brain after being diagnosed with seizures. I take Omega 3 daily know and multivitamins which have been very useful in helping increase my focus and energy. I love the list of foods you have included to help improve brain health. My brain has not been the same since suffering from so many seizures but I am sure with proper care I can rebuild it. Thanks for the great info!

    • Thanks for the comment. I hate that you’ve had seizures but they can be controlled. The vitamins and supplements that you are taking keep it up they can make a big difference.
