BRAIN HEALTH | 10.5.2015 | BY DAYA ALEXANDER GRANT, Ph.D., M.S.
As we announced last week, LYB has partnered with The Vermont Juice Company to offer BRAIN BOOST, a delicious cold-pressed juice designed to nourish, what else, your brain!
What makes this blend particularly good for the brain? For starters, it contains those little blue(berry) antioxidant powerhouses, which protect the brain against cellular damage. It also has beets, whose nitrates optimize blood flow to the brain, and apples, which are high in the antioxidants and memory-improving compounds. And those “cool” cucumbers? Well those contain stress-reducing B vitamins. The final touches of lemon and ginger further support neurotransmitter function and cognition. Talk about a delicious way to LoveYourBrain!
We can all benefit from the delicious ingredients in the Brain Boost Juice, even if we don’t live in Vermont. Find a juice shop near you and choose something with beets and blueberries. Or, better yet, peruse your grocery store or local farmer’s market (beets are still in season in October and frozen blueberries work just fine) and create a unique blend at home. The most important thing is to get creative and enjoy the taste.
