acai bowl with oats and bananasHealthy eating is about more than eating right—it involves introducing very specific ingredients and foods into your diet to clear your mind, enhance your mind, and improve overall blood flow—and thus, your health.

Some of these brain-boosting drinks can even improve cognitive function and focus, while the use of specific foods such as spinach will help you in other ways we’ll cover below.

Acai berry is ideal for smoothies and juices, and is one of the top-ranking brain-healthy berries around. Increased blood flow and reduced inflammation are both benefits of consuming these delicious berries. Adding frozen acai berries to your smoothies allows you to gain the full nutritional benefit of the fruit—and, frozen Acai are more cost effective than fresh berries.

Spinach, either fresh or frozen, is great for overall blood flow—with a twist. Said to be the “ultimate man food,” spinach is a rich source of plant-based omega-3s and folate that help reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, and osteoporosis. An added bonus: folate increases blood flow to the penis for those interested in a natural sexual enhancement.

Carrots are a wonderful treat for snack time with the added benefit of being a great brain booster. High in beta-carotene, carrots deliver antioxidants to reduce inflammation and combat brain deterioration. One of the best ways to consume carrots is by juicing them, although you can munch on them as usual to still receive the full benefits.

Oats have the natural capacity to aid in muscle development and a healthier heart. To improve muscle growth, stimulate your brain, and go heart healthy, eat oats. Eating oats helps reduce the risk of heart disease, and they’re packed with carbs and 10 grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving, delivering steady muscle-building energy.

Cocoa added to any brain-boosting drink promises an extra yummy flavor. Cocoa’s also known to improve brain function of adults suffering from hypertension. Blood flow will also increase after drinking two cups of cocoa a day for a month. Cocoa flavanols help maintain the elasticity of blood vessels to enhance normal blood flow. You can add some cocoa to your next smoothie, or even toss it in with some oats!
