We need to get our bodies and health ready as the world is slowly transitioning to post-pandemic life of face-to-face work and classes. While we are starting to do things in public, we want to be energized for the task at hand and protected from any disease.
That is why it is very important that we are mindful of what eat. As they say, “you are what you eat.” Any food or drinks that we take—whether it be lechon, salad, fruit shakes, or even just regular tapsilog— they are broken down in our bodies as different nutrients. These energize the different organs of our body, each one with different purposes.
Needless to say, our brain is one of the most important body parts that we have. It works together with our heart to literally keep us alive – as the heart pumps blood throughout our body, the brain sends signals to different body systems to perform the functions we need.
Our brain helps provide energy to our body, move our muscles, remember information, and even digest food. It’s also the seat of our emotions – different chemicals called neurotransmitters help us form feelings such as happiness, sadness, and even stress.
So we really need to nourish our brain with healthy food that can strengthen us mentally. According to BBC Good Food, carbohydrates from rice and bread give our brain the energy it needs to function, especially since it takes up 20% of our energy taken from glucose. Vitamins, especially Vitamins B, C, D, and E are also essential to maintaining our normal brain functions and forming nerves. These nutrients will also protect us from brain-related illnesses as we age.
According to Harvard Health, antioxidants are important to keeping our brain healthy and protecting it from oxidative stress from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules produced from regular body processes, which when not removed, can damage cells and increase our risk to diseases like Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and heart disease. We can find all these in a healthy diet with foods such as whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and fish.
Also, we need food supplements such as Organique Acai Premium Blend as part of our healthy diet. This “authentic superfood supplement” is full of anthocyanins and vitamins that can both help protect your brain and your immune system. Anthocyanins are an antioxidant that can help reduce inflammation in the body, including the brain, and can also fight free radicals. To get our brains ready, we must support them with both nutritious food and food supplements that can both energize us and protect our health!
