The brain is your body's most powerful organ. It controls your thoughts, movements, and bodily systems. Our nutrition experts, including Olympic athlete Iwan Thomas, have pulled together advice on keeping yours healthy. 

The facts

Situated at the back of the brain, the cerebellum or 'little brain' relays information between muscles. It helps us walk and run meaning it's vital to keep it healthy in the lead up to a running race.

Small changes every day are the easiest way to boost brain health in the long run, so read on for top tips that will set you on the right track. 

Iwan Thomas on what to eat for a healthy brain

Nutrients that could help

One review found that eating higher amounts of B vitamins decreased the risk of dementia. B vitamins can be found in a whole host of food such as dairy, fish and fruit. Fatty acids such as omega 3s can also support brain health. One study found taking omega 3 supplements was beneficial to memory function in healthy 50 to 75-year olds. If you struggle to eat enough of these brain-healthy nutrients, consider supplementing with Brain Synergex.

Lastly, keep exercising!

Regular aerobic exercise, in women aged 70 to 80, can boost the size of the hippocampus: the part of the brain responsible for verbal memory and learning.

Not only that, but a study, published by the British Journal of Sports Medicine, found weekly 45 to 60-minute sessions of Thai Chi or aerobic exercise improved cognitive function for the over 50s. 

Nothing beats a healthy, balanced diet to provide all the nutrients we need. But when this isn't possible, supplements can help. This article isn't intended to replace medical advice. Please consult your healthcare professional before trying supplements or herbal medicines.
