Be More Caring

As mom and wife, we have so many challenges to face to make us a better wife and mom. We tend to research to know what to do to show of caring for the family member especially hubby. One way to a man's heart is through his stomach, but of course we will want to serve something delicious, but make sure it is safe. One way of making them feel you care for them is to serve them something delicious and rich with minerals especially for the brain and you can tell them how good it is for their brains especially if hubby's having porblems with memory gaps or also your kids and they'll probably always think who's the best wife and mom in the world. If hubby won't like a food you'll always have the options to what kind of food are you going t serve him. Just make him understand too that you're doing it for his health and add it up with some sweet words.

Food for the brain

Fish: The original "brain food" contains lots of omega- 3 fatty acids and fish oils, especially like cold water fish like salmon and cod. Omega-3s are beneficial in a number of ways, includin promoting neuronal growth, improved cholesterol and fortification of myelin sheaths, which facilitate communication between neurons. If hubby doesn't like fish then you can go to the next choice.

Vegetables: This is great source of antioxidants, which may reduce risk of developing cognitive impairment by diminishing oxidative stress. Spinach, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and cauliflower are among the top candidates.

Fruits: Like vegetables, fruits are rich in antioxidants. However, fruit tastes better. Some of your healtiest options are blueberries, papayas, blackberries, cranberries, strawberries, plums, avocados, oranges, red grapes, red bell peppers, cherries and kiwis.

Water: Be sure to get enough to keep your body and brain hydrated. Dehydration can cause a headache now, and can lead to long-term neuronal damage sustained from elevated stress hormones.

Chocolates: Last (and arguably least benefecial) are cocoa beans, which contain the flavonal epicatechin and antioxidants. Dark chocolate us best, and avoid candy bars with lots of added sugars. Also, recent research suggest that chocolate can improve memory.

A complete and balanced diet is probably the soundest advice, but some specific types of foods are especially good for brain health. The aforementioned are few of the best.
