Experiencing Brain Fog? These are the Best Foods for Boosting your Brain and Memory

A year of lockdowns and “new normals” has us all feeling the effects of brain fog—forgetting our keys, missing appointments, and rescheduling outings has seemingly become a normal day to day occurrence. While there are obvious solutions to the issue of brain fog (more consistent sleep, for starters), adjusting your diet has also shown to improve this ailment. Experts have broken down the best foods to add to your diet to increase cognitive function and decrease brain fog.

Salmon

This one may not come as a surprise, as this health food powerhouse is especially rich in omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to fight fatigue and keep the mind sharp and alert. Recent studies have found that omega-3 rich fish can even alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease in older adults. Vegetarians need not worry—avocados offer a similar amount of omega-3 fatty acids and DHA.

Olive Oil

The antiinflammatory properties of olive oil are a combined benefit with their ability to improve brain function. Decreasing inflammation in the body helps to fight off illnesses and promote healthy cognitive function and counteract fatigue, while recent studies have shown olive oil to be effective in combating Alzheimer’s disease. 

Walnuts

Many nuts and seeds are considered superfoods, and for good reason; many varieties of nuts and seeds are high in DHA—which improves brain function—and are an excellent source of antioxidants, which fight free radicals in the body and decrease inflammation. Walnuts are also an excellent source of magnesium, which has been shown to be essential for memory and learning.

Water

While it may seem obvious, water is often a neglected solution to brain fog. It’s been shown that chronic dehydration makes the brain sluggish and slow, making it harder to focus on tasks and affects memory. So next time you leave your keys at home, don’t forget to grab your water bottle as well—it could make all the difference.
