How your diet affects your mind

Nutrition & Wellbeing

Did you know that what you eat can affect your mind? For those busy times when it’s hard to maintain a balanced diet, turn to the new Nutrilite™ Be Focused gummies to give your brain a lift

When you’re constantly on the go, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy diet. With what little free time you have, it probably feels easier to eat a granola bar in the car or grab some fast food in between errands. However, what you consume throughout the day can determine how well you can focus on what is important to you, whether it be work, family or personal tasks.

Struggling to juggle your work and personal life, stress, and lack of sleep can all have a negative impact on your concentration and focus. A healthy diet gives you the nutrients needed for your brain to work at full strength. But what should you be eating to achieve this? It may surprise you that it’s not just about eating more fruits and veggies. Carbohydrates and fat are also essential to keeping brain fog and fatigue at bay. For everything else, there are supplements like the new Nutrilite™ Be Focused gummies.

Read on to see what you should eat to help stay focused throughout day.

Carbohydrates

The glucose found in carbohydrates is good for keeping your mind feeling awake and energized. Your brain accounts for around 2% of your body weight, but it consumes 20% of your glucose-derived energy. Glucose is also what helps produce serotonin in the brain.1 “Carbs” also help raise your blood sugar level, which contributes to you feeling less worn down and fatigued.

Although many people steer away from carbs for fear of weight gain, there are healthy carbohydrates that are important to keeping your mental capacities functioning. These healthy carbs include whole grains, rice, potatoes, fruit and vegetables.

Fats

Like carbohydrates, fat often gets a bad rap simply because people only associate it with increasing numbers on their scale. However, there are healthy fats that play a key component in the structure and function of the neurons in your brain. For example, omega-3 fats, which are found in fish, are responsible for good eye and mental development.2

Healthy fats that are good for your focus include avocados, nuts and oily fish, such as salmon, herring and sardines.

Vitamins and minerals

It’s no surprise that vitamins and minerals also play an important role in your brain function. Specifically, B vitamins and vitamins C, D and E, as well as magnesium, are all essential to brain health and development. Because of the boost these vitamins and minerals give your nerves and neurons, supporting them in your diet can help improve your memory and fight stress.

For those constantly on the go, one of the best ways to ensure you are getting the vitamins and minerals that you need is by taking daily supplements. This is a convenient and simple way to ensure you are getting the nutrients you need, without having to count all of the carbs and fats you’ve had throughout the day.
