Micro algae
such as spirulina and chlorella are two of the richest whole foods in terms of brain nutritional content currently available. Spirulina contains all of the essential amino acids, exceptionally high in protein content by weight, and fortified with vitamins and nutrients critical to maintaining brain health.]

Fish
are excellent sources of protein and omega-3 fatty acids that are essential for a healthy brain. Wild fish such as salmon, mackerel, tuna and sardines are particularly rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Generally, wild fish are to be preferred to farm raised. Fish contain the neurotransmitter precurser Tyrosine that assists in the production of norepinephrine. If you are a vegetarian or vegan who does not consume fish, you may want to consider taking a flax seed supplement to augment your diet.

Fresh vegetables
provide the brain with essential nutrients and antioxidants to help nourish and maintain brain cell growth. Organically grown vegetables, free from pesticides and additives, are much healthier for your brain than vegetables exposed to growing practices utilizing harsh chemicals. In one scientific study, rats who were fed spinach showed a much lower decline in age-related mental functions than did their conterparts fed a conventional diet.

Fresh and Organic Fruits
are superb souces of antioxidants including Vitamin C. Blueberries, strawberries, and oranges are especially potent brain foods. According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), people who eat an abundance of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants are 70% less likely to suffer from dementia and Alzheimer's. The study recommends eight to nine servings a day of antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables for optimum brain health.

Nuts and Seeds
Walnuts, brazil nuts, and peanuts are high in protein and contain omega 3 fatty acids that are critical to a healthy brain. Brazil nuts contain selenium. Walnuts are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and also contain tryptophan.

Water
is perhaps the single best source of nourishment for our brains. Clean and pure water is essential to brain health. Water makes up approximately 85% of the total weight of our brains and can help cleanse the brain from toxins we consume from our environment and other foods we eat. However, it is necessary to be moderate even in regards to our water consumption. Both too little water, and too much, can be problematic. Maintaining a healthy balance of water will help ensure that our brain is functioning at optimal levels of performance.
