Your brain function can be improved if you eat some fruits and vegetables and scientists learned that what we eat takes a toll on our bodies. For example, when you are stressed out, whether it’s physical or mental, your body release inflammatory cytokines and these chemicals prompt the immune system to fight back against the stress through inflammation.
The question is what does this have to do with food? Well…our gut helps us to keep our body’s immune responses under control and gut hormones that are produced in the brain influence cognitive ability. So, we can stay focused longer and process new information quickly.
