4 Juices to Help Improve Brain Health

Spinach for Learning

Spinach juice offers antioxidants that quench free radicals which cause neurogenerative effects. The flavonoids in spinach can help reduce plaque buildup that is associated with Alzheimer’s disease. One study published in Experimental Neurology showed less brain damage from the restricted blood supply and increased motor function following a stroke. Spinach also expands the brain’s learning capacity.

Kale Lowers Chances of Stroke

The American Academy of Neurology says “leafy greens are one of the best foods for brain health.” Kale’s vitamins A, C and E and selenium are integral for brain wellness. They also lower the chances of stroke. One cup of raw kale, which you can easily juice or blend in smoothies, contains 80.4 milligrams of vitamin C and 10,302 international units of vitamin A, or 134% and 206% of your daily required value, respectively.

Watercress Can Help Prevent Cognitive Decline and Depression

Watercress is rich in folate, which may act in preventing cognitive decline. Results of a study of males between the ages of 50-70 years showed that participants given 800 mcg of folate daily were shown to have a beneficial effect on cognition and verbal fluency. Folate has also been shown to help prevent depression.

Berries Improve Motor Control and Cognition

Blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and other berries have benefits that may help prevent age-related memory loss and other brain changes, said scientists in ACS’ Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Berries’ antioxidants protect cells from damage by harmful free radicals. They also change the way neurons in the brain communicate and they improve both motor control and cognition.
