6 Foods To Help Boost Mental Clarity & Brain Function

We often talk about the best ways to eat, rest and move in terms of how it will make us look and perform but we don’t often stop to consider how we’re treating our brains.

Mental Clarity
Considering it’s our brain that’s in charge of everything we do, this is a little strange. If our cognitive function is slightly impaired it will effect everything from our performance in the gym to how we view ourselves when we look in to the mirror.

So with this said here are 6 foods to help boost your mental clarity and brain function:

  1. Water – Ok so technically not a food but as dehydration has been shown to actually shrink brain tissue we thought it was worth mentioning. Drinking plenty of good quality water can help improve short term memory, focus and decision making.
