An army marches on its stomach, and a business blooms on brain food.
by Emilie DeCoursey
Any entrepreneur can tell you they have about a million things on their mind at any given moment. It can be a real challenge juggling bills, new hires, customer service reviews, marketing efforts, investments, website issues, and so on. Managing so many aspects of a growing business requires fuel and focus, which is why we wanted to tell you about some of the best brain foods for building that business like a champ!
These little babies are full of monounsaturated fats, which are great for boosting a healthy blood flow to your brain and throughout your body. They’re also great at helping to lower blood pressure for that moment your vendor prints 500 “Tweety Bird” business cards instead of the “Madmen” style you originally ordered.
Brown rice, whole grain bread and oatmeal are great food choices for reducing heart disease while also promoting blood flow to all your organs, including your brain. These foods will also help put some power behind your cardiovascular efforts during your strenuous days lifting boxes, running to meetings and giving rounds of high-powered high-fives every time you make a new sale on your website.
Go on, take a bite. That’s right, yeah, eat the whole bar! You deserve it. While you go and hide in the bathroom to take a break from it all, you’ll be happy to know that dark chocolate is packed with antioxidants, has natural stimulants such as caffeine for enhancing concentration and focus, and also helps to stimulate a production of increased endorphins for improving your mood. Maybe you better eat two.
These fruits, though a little tricky to eat, offer lots of antioxidant power, which helps in preventing damage from free radicals. The brain is especially susceptible to free radical damage, which makes antioxidants especially valuable. In fact, any colorful fruits and vegetables are perfect brain foods because of their antioxidant power.
Salmon And Other Oily Fish
Your brain requires plenty of omega-3 essential fatty acids to function properly. Fish such as salmon, herring and sardines are full of omega-3 essential fatty acids, which also act as anti-inflammatory substances for the health of your lovely brain. If the taste of fish doesn’t make for your favorite dish, you can still benefit from fish oil supplements that will benefit your brain in the same way.
