Rob McKinsey’s article on Ask Reporter, titled “Neurocore: Fueling the Brain with Food” reveals the brain training company based in Michigan uses nutrition to maintain the health of the brain.
As the study of nutrition and diet has grown, it has been revealed that the types of food you eat can have a huge impact on how you feel and think. Junk food will often leave you feeling sluggish and tired while whole foods that are packed with nutrients leave you feeling energetic. Neurocore also suggests that nutrition can also have a large impact on how your brain functions. Neurocore uses applied neuroscience to help improve the cognitive performance of their clients. One thing they have discovered in helping them is the importance of the right nutrition and lifestyle. Learn more about Neurocore at Crunchbase.
Neurocore reveals that a key to maintaining a healthy brain is by eating a Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean diet uses a lot of vegetables, fruits, fish, olive oil, and nuts to provide essential nutrients to the body. It does not contain a lot of fast food, junk food, or red meat, all of which lead to inflammation and may lead to health issues.

Neurocore also suggests people should focus on including superfoods into their diet. Superfoods are nutrient dense foods that help the body and the brain maintain optimal functionality. Specifically, Neurocore suggests you include Cinnamon, healthy fats, and raw honey into the diet. Cinnamon is a spice that is capable of doing more than just flavoring your favorite coffee. It is also an antioxidant that helps reduce inflammation in the body. By lowering inflammation, the body will have lower blood pressure and lower cholesterol, helping the body defend the brain against cognitive decline. Healthy fats are also key to maintaining brain health. Walnuts, avocados, and salmon are high in the healthy fat called Omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids have been shown to lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
Neurocore indicates that maintaining a healthy brain includes maintaining a healthy heart. In one study, nearly 500 participants were tracked over the course of 30 years. In the study, those who maintained a heart healthy diet experienced less age-related cognitive decline. Read more about Neurocore at glassdoor.com.
