Our brains are truly miraculous. They’re constantly changing and regulating billions of bodily functions simultaneously every second of every day. Our brains govern our thoughts, emotions, movements and more. More than 100 studies show that environmental, nutritional and lifestyle factors play a significant role in initiating or accelerating brain disease. Check out these tips for eating and living to naturally enhance what is arguably the most important part of our bodies.

Many food and lifestyle choices can help give our brains a push in the right direction. Try these eight effective methods. Test your memory using one of the many online memory assessment tools (Lumosity has some excellent ones) prior to making the following lifestyle changes, then test it again after four weeks. For the complete four-week program, consult Boost Your Brain Power in 60 Seconds.

1. EAT MORE BRAIN-FRIENDLY SUPERFOODS. Foods such as pomegranates, cherries, blueberries, grapes, green tea, fresh ginger and legumes have brain-healing effects. Include these in your diet to reduce inflammation and brain-damaging free radicals.

2. CONSIDER THE CURRY FACTOR. Curcumin, found in the spice turmeric, provides potent protection against brain diseases. Research at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the University of California, Los Angeles, found that curcumin, the pigment that gives turmeric its signature yellow color, is a potent weapon against inflammation and plaque buildup in the brain.

3. GO NUTS TO BOOST YOUR MEMORY. Walnuts are nutritional powerhouses packed with protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, all of which are critical to a healthy brain. Omega-3s in particular protect against brain-damaging inflammation.
