Brain Foods for the Healthy Singer

Brain foods for the healthy singer

When you think of becoming smarter, you probably think about…

  • Studying hard
  • Doing lots of math
  • Putting in tons of time and effort

But what if I told you that you could get smarter by eating?

Doesn’t sound too bad, does it?

If you choose your foods wisely, you’ll find it can make a significant difference to your brain function and overall mental performance.

Read on to see which brain foods we recommend for healthy singers!

Here are some of our favorite brain foods…

Oily Fish

Oily fish is absolutely crucial for optimum brain health. Why? Because it contains omega 3 fatty acid.

Omega 3 benefits our brain in two ways. Firstly, omega 3 fatty acid can be used to build cell walls. When omega 3 helps out our cell wall formulation, less materials get replaced. In turn, this results in brain cells that are more flexible, more fluid, and less likely to become damaged.

Better yet, this also increases “cell membrane permeability.” In simple English, this means that neurotransmitters, nutrients and key signals will pass through the cell walls more easily, allowing for speedier transmissions and improved communication across synapses.

On top of all this, omega 3 fatty acid also fights inflammation. Inflammation is actually a big deal in the brain, where pro-inflammatory cytokines can cause serious damage if left to their own devices. Brain inflammation is probably responsible for brain fog, so this is a quick and effective brain upgrade.

Eggs

Eggs contain all of the essential amino acids that humans need to thrive. This means that it contains all the proteins that are used to build muscle, skin, bone and neurochemicals.

But what eggs also contain is choline. Choline is a chemical precursor to acetylcholine, meaning that it is what the brain uses in order to synthesize that ingredient. This is important for us, because acetylcholine is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain alongside glutamate. This means it is used in many important operations and particularly when it comes to memory!

Avocado

Avocado is a healthy saturated fat, which is important because the brain is largely made from fat. It’s also another source of omega 3 fatty acid.

But what is most exciting of all is that it contains lutein – a carotenoid that used to be known primarily for its eye-health benefits but which has since come to be seen as a powerful cognitive enhancer and energy booster!
