Five foods for Brain Power!

The brain is an energy-intensive organ using about 20% of your body’s energy requirements!

It needs good fuel to keep it going throughout the day.

Eating certain foods that nourish and protect your brain can help slow cognitive decline and improve your brain’s health.

Here are our top 5 foods linked to better brainpower:

1. Green Leafy Vegetables

Leafy greens are rich in vitamin K, and folate. Research suggests these and other phytonutrients found in greens promote healthy cell growth and reduce inflammation.

2. Oily Fish 

They are abundant in omega-3 fatty acids, which can help healthy brain function. For those who don’t eat fish flaxseeds, avocados, and walnuts are other plant-based sources of omega-3.

3. Berries

Berries are filled with phytonutrients like flavonoids and antioxidants which have been shown to improve memory. Plant & Food Research (New Zealand) in collaboration with Northumbria University (UK), showed that compounds found in New Zealand blackcurrants increased mental performance indicators, such as accuracy, attention, and mood.

4. Nuts

A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology suggests that getting plenty of Vitamin E might help to prevent cognitive decline, particularly in the elderly. Nuts are a rich source of Vitamin E!

5. Wholegrains

As we said earlier your brain needs plenty of energy! To concentrate and focus our brains need energy in a steady supply. Whole grains are low-GI which means they slowly release glucose into the bloodstream, keeping you alert throughout the day. Brown rice, quinoa, bulgur wheat, and oats are great options!

Remember your daily Double Shot is the equivalent of three servings of leafy green vegetables and a handful of berries! So get shoting!

“I have been taking my shots for about 2 months now. After being sick 8 times this year with colds (yes 8 times!) I was almost at my wits end. Catching public transport to and from work and working in an office open floor plan have not helped when other people cough over you all the time. However, since I started taking my shots every day I haven’t had ONE cold!!!! It has been such a relief and everyone has noticed how much more energy I have (looking a lot brighter in the skin). My partner noticed so much and now he’s hooked too!!! I also got three other colleagues into them.”

“In the mornings I used to drag myself out of bed and felt like I had been run over by a bus. It usually took me a strong coffee and half an hour of just sitting to wake up properly. After about two weeks of taking the shots I noticed I was getting up feeling energised and ready for the day. It has really helped to maintain energy levels throughout the day and I am more inclined to be active as I have more energy! Amazing! I feel content that I am supporting and nourishing my body for myself, my family and my future health.”

“This product is so amazing. I’ve had a coffee everyday in hand daily (twice sometimes) just to survive since having my first baby 17months ago. I’ve only been taking this for a week, sometimes twice a day depending on how busy the day is, and even after having less than 5hours sleep most times, I no longer NEED coffee and have energy to work nightshift without coffee, no after noon slump, the list of benefits goes on. Thank you so much 🙂 So Grateful.”
