Dr Oz: The Brain Diet
Looking for all-natural ways to boost your memory? Doctor Oz is joined by Dr. Majid Fotuhi, to reveal the foods to help keep your brain healthy and fit with the Dr Oz Brain Diet that includes foods like elderberry jam, beets, chicken giblets, vegetable juice and pecans. The 6th step in Dr. Majid Fotuhi’s Alzheimer’s Prevention Plan is to eat the right superfoods. Tanisha, an audience member, said her memory was not that great. She constantly left her keys around the house and forgot to do little things. Her grandma had dementia and she was worried about how that would affect her brain. Dr. Fotuhi believes that how much you eat and what you eat is important for the brain. Obesity is another reason for Alzheimer’s.
Dr Oz: Elderberry Jam
If you’re looking to boost your brain power, try elderberry jam. Elderberry jam contains antioxidants, which is also a great cancer fighter. Elderberry comes in many forms, including jam. Spread some on your toast for a healthy breakfast.
Pecans Boost Memory
Pecans are a delicious treat, but did you know a small serving of pecans is good for you? Pecans contain choline, which is a great memory booster.
Chicken Giblets Prevent Alzheimers
Dr Oz says organ meats are a great way to stave off Alzheimer’s. In fact, Dr Oz said his mother used to make him eat giblets when he was younger. (Better him than me! Yuck!) Chicken giblets are a good source of vitamin B12, which is essential for brain health. (Giblets include the heart and the liver.) You can simmer giblets into a stew. Also, clams are good source of vitamin B12. Clams have high levels of zinc and iron, which helps the brain. You can also get B12 shots.
Vegetable Juice Brain Booster
Dr Oz says vegetable juice is a gold mine of vitamins and antioxidants. In fact, veggie juice contains vitamins that haven’t been discovered yet. Drink 8 oz once per day.
Beets Prevent Alzheimers
Make beets the right way, and they taste great as part of your Brain Diet. Dr Oz said that beets are high in nitrates, which increase blood flow in the brain. (One-third of the brain is made up of blood vessels.) You can juice the beets or just simmer them.
