Ask Reporter published the article “Neurocore: Fueling the Brain with Food” by Rob McKinsey to reveal the latest key insight into applied neuroscience. Neurocore, a brain training performance center based in Michigan uses applied neuroscience to help their clients improve their cognitive performance. One recent revelation the company provided may be unexpected to some. Nutrition not only plays a part in a person’s overall health, but it can also have a large impact on the health of the brain.

Everyone has experienced the immediate impact of junk food and fast food. It can make people sluggish, lethargic, and mentally foggy. However, when a person eats well, consuming whole foods without a lot of refined sugar, he can feel the impact on his quality of life.
The same is true of the brain. The brain needs nutrients in order to remain healthy. Neurocore suggests that eating well, such as eating a diet that will protect the heart, will also have a long-term effect on the health of one’s brain. A recent study revealed that eating to maintain the health of the heart will cause the brain to maintain its size instead of shrinking. Taking care of the heart will also allow the brain to maintain its size.
Have you ever noticed that when you’re under a lot of #stress, you have a hard time remembering things? You’re not imagining this phenomenon – it has to do with the way our brains function. https://t.co/YFHfm4Suy4

Neurocore also believes in eating foods that are high in quality nutrients. Eating superfoods like chia seeds, healthy fats, raw honey and even cinnamon can help the brain maintain its high cognitive function. Good fats help the body reduce blood pressure and can lower cholesterol. This improves the heart’s health, which as we have seen, improves the health of the brain. Honey has antioxidant properties that can help prevent heart disease and cancer. It also helps the brain function when a person sleeps by helping the brain create melatonin. Cinnamon is great at preventing inflammation. It can also prevent the brain from creating the protein called tau, which can create tangles in the brain. By preventing the Tau from forming, cinnamon helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Neurocore uses drug free programs based in cognitive science to help strengthen the brains of their patients. The core program uses the brain’s ability to restructure itself to help it become stronger. Read more about Neurocore at glassdoor.com.
