As you already know, what you eat on a daily basis is very essential to sustaining optimal brain health and function. If You aren't fueling Your body with the right foods, You're going to struggle. The memory may decline, You won't be able to think on your feet as well and You might even find you aren't as alert as You'd like to be.


One of the most important nutrients for the body in your diet plan is protein. Protein provides the amino acids, Which are the building blocks your tissues are made of, so it's not something you can skimp on.


As it turns out, Certain protein sources are also a lot better for brain health than others. Which come out ahead? Which are the best protein sources to eat to encourage better brain Function?


Here's your list. Protein is something that You should be eating at each and every meal so start ensuring that these are part of your daily diet plan.


SALMON

First on the list is Salmon. Salmon earns top marks as far as protein sources go because not only does it deliver a standout level of protein, it also provides a hearty dose of omega-3 fatty acids as well.

Omega 3- fatty acids are very important as far as keeping insulin sensitivity up goes, as far as preventing your risk of heart disease goes, and as far as preventing depression and improving cognition and memory goes. And this is really just scratching the tip of the iceberg.

Omega 3- fatty acids are a fatty acid that the body cannot make on its own, so they must come from food sources. No food source is better to consume that Salmon.

Try and get Salmon into your week at least twice, if not three times.


EGGS

Next up on the list are eggs- and we're not just talking about egg whites. Many people are in the habit of tossing the yolk because they feel that it's going to contribute to increasing their heart disease risk.

Here's the thing: While it's true that eggs yolks definitely do contain some cholesterol, as long as you're currently in good health standing, There's no reason you can't include an egg (or even two) In your diet each day. You just need to make sure you aren't taking in an abundance of cholesterol from other sources.

What's more is that egg yolks contain choline, which is an important mineral that is needed for proper brain health and function. Few foods contain this. so getting in some eggs is a perfect way to get your daily dose.


TURKEY BREAST

Finally, last on the list of fantastic protein-rich foods to consume to improve brain health is Turkey breast. While turkey breast isn't going to serve to make you alert and combat depression like Salmo or eggs do, What it is going to do is help to lower your overall stress levels.


When We eat Turkey, We get a release of serotonin in the brain, which is a feel-good neurotransmitter that causes us to be in a relaxed state. The end results from Less stress and a better overall mood.

Keeping stress levels low is a critical part of keeping your brain healthy, so this isn't something to be overlooking.


So there you have three different protein rich foods that you should be consuming as part of your weekly diet program. Are there any that you are missing out on?


Thank You for reading my blogs. please feel free to make a comment or follow me on facebook.


Kind regards.

Why is Valentine's day celebrated?

The origins of Valentine's day are murky.We know that the Ancient Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia, a Spring Festival, on the 15th of February, with the introduction of Christianity. The holiday moved to the 14th of February - The Saint Day that celebrated several early Christian Martyr's named Valentine.


What is the real story of Valentine's day?

The legend of St Valentine - The History of Valentine's day and the story of its Patron Saint-is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance.and that St. Valentine's day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and Ancient Roman tradition.


Who was Saint Valentine and What did he do?

One account from the 1400s describes Valentine as a temple priest who was beheaded near Rome by the Emperor Claudius II for helping Christian couples wed. A different account claims Valentine was the Bishop of Terni. also martyred by Claudius II on the outskirts of Rome.


What is Valentine's Day all about?

Each Year on February 14th, many people exchange cards, candy, gifts or flowers with their special "Valentine" The day of romance we call Valentine's Day is named for a Christian martyr and dates back to the 5th century. but has origins in the Roman holiday Lupercalia.

Nelly's Beauty Blog Winner - After been Ranked among the 100 best British Beauty Bloggers, here is the next blog, which I hope you will enjoy reading. It is about your eyes!


Marigolds are a common sight in flower gardens and are even planted in other gardens because they support the growth of vegetables. It is that protective ability that we are interested in.


Specifically, we are interested in the colour essence of Marigolds,

Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Marigolds are the most potent source of these two vital Vision Detoxifier compounds.


- Zeaxanthin helps give Marigold leaves their vibrant green colour.

- Lutein helps make the flower petals yellow and orange.


More importantly, the top nutrition researchers from India, Italy, Poland, Turkey, Iran, and England all came together to report that light comes in through your lens, then projects the image onto your retina (the inside back of your eye). The images then travel along your optic nerve to your brain, your lens flexes and adjusts to focus the image. It stays loose to focus on objects far away and flexes tight to focus on close objects.


If your near-distance vision is getting worse as you age, here's what' happening: Your lens is losing its ability to flex and focus on close objects.


Fortunately, there is a way to protect your eyes.

In fact, this solution lies deep inside that beauty of nature itself.

I'm talking about the "colour essence" of a common yellow and orange flower.


The molecules that give this flower it's vibrant colours are the very same molecules that will protect you against blue Radiation. I believe there is poetry in this. It's as if the flowers want you to continue enjoying their beauty, so they give you the tools to do so.


Vision 20 starts with the 3 ingredients we've already talked about. Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Zinc.


Beta-carotene is a form of vitamin A. You can find small amounts of it in foods ranging from milk to carrots. According to researchers at the University of Colorado, Beta-carotene protects your vision against overly bright light including blue UV light. It also slows the death of vital eye cells and lowers your risk of serious vision concerns.


Lycopene. This is another colour essence compound. It gives fruits and vegetables like tomatoes, watermelons and guavas their red colour. AND it also protects the cells in your eyes.


Hope you enjoy this reading. Please give us your comments! Nelly.
