This simple brain fog cure smoothie recipe is easy to make, will help with mental clarity and give you a natural boost of energy.
Now and then I’m faced with a day where I find it hard to concentrate. Mental fatigue has finally caught up with me and I’m on the hunt for a brain fog cure. Whether it’s a tough week in the office followed by a weekend gymnastics tournament for Clare or just an afternoon that needs to be productive, I know I could use an extra boost to stay sharp. The go-to food for these cases are blueberries and raspberries. Honestly, they should just be called Brain Berries.
When we’re young, our brains rarely have trouble keeping up. That’s because a young body produces a ton of microglia, a cell responsible for cleaning up debris that pollutes the brain. This debris slows down brain function, clouding our focus and making it difficult to concentrate. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time for that. That’s where berries come in.
As we age, our body doesn’t produce as much microglia as it did when we were young. That means it is easier for junk to build up in our brain. This leads to decreased memory and trouble staying focused. Brain cells can become damaged, not only in the right now, but for the long run as well. Today, it may cause you to forget where you left your keys, but years from now it may lead to more serious mental diseases like Alzheimer’s.
Top brain fog cure ingredients you should be blending
Blueberries and raspberries fight on the front lines against the oxidative stress and free radical damage that cause memory malfunctions. They keep microglia cells working properly, ensuring your brain is working properly too. Say goodbye to mental fatigue.
Blueberries are the number one berry for enhancing memory. They contain a unique blend of nutrients that boost memory, now and in the future. Raspberries are a close second. They keep the brain healthy by stopping neuron inflammation. This stops any neurological damage in its tracks.
When struggling to stay focused, remember these incredible benefits of berries. You may need to eat some right now to be sure you’ll remember to remember. We suggest trying the U-Pick Me Up smoothie. It’s a delicious way to get the blueberry and raspberry intake you need to stay sharp.Print
