The Unsurpassed Superfood Power Series

A practical superfoods series for brain health and easy to implement in your day-to-day family life.

As a parent and physician, I want to help my kids learn and boost their brain power and performance at school. To have an easy reference, I created the superfoods series.

We use these memory-boosting superfoods daily to support their physical and mental demands. And, knowing the difference it makes to my kids performance, I had to also share it with you.

How to use the superfoods series

The superfoods series is divided into sets. Each one designed to suggest the best natural superfoods during different times of high demand.

This post is dedicated to memory boosting superfoods.

And, I strongly recommend:

you add at least two of each superfood group to your kids’ daily diet.

Add the superfoods for brain health as part of a healthy meal plan to boost brain performance.

What are superfoods

Research has proven that superfoods, like the ones listed below, contains extra amounts of nutrients.

These nutrients are essential for DNA repair and growth.

They can, therefore, protect you from certain diseases or support times of high demand. More so than non-superfoods.

In case you were wondering:

whether natural vitamin supplements

have a place in providing essential nutrients?

The answer is yes, it certainly does.

However, nothing beats the super health benefits of
  • natural and
  • unchanged vitamins and minerals
  • found in fresh foods

Why fresh foods are more super

The nutrients in natural superfoods are

  • more easily absorbed than those found in supplements.

A good idea during exam time is to plan meals

  • to include at least two of these superfoods daily
  • to help your child prepare and excel
  • improving memory and focus with brain foods
The bottom line is though:

There is no logic in consuming huge amounts of superfoods.

Why?

It is simple. Our bodies are designed to only absorb essential nutrients as needed.

The key to a balanced diet:

  • include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and
  • limited amounts of animal proteins

Why should you eat superfoods

During exam time, it is very important to boost your child’s performance with superfoods.

The benefits of including brain food for kids:
  • to stimulate cognitive function and
  • enhance memory

This is a great collection of references supporting the benefits of superfoods.

Wondering how superfoods actually support brain health?

Certain foods are classified as superfoods because they contain:
  • certain nutrients
    • supporting brain development and memory
  • antioxidants
    • protecting the brain from damage

These are the constituents and benefits of brain foods for kids.
