Question answer. Concentration of attention


What foods improve concentration?

Answer: Eggs and fish. But they must be correct. Carnivorous, oily or fatty — no matter what you call it, fish: herring, wild or organic salmon, mackerel and trout contain an essential omega-3 fatty acid that has been proven to sharpen your mind. In fact, the levels of omega-3 fatty acids in newborn babies correspond to their IQ at the age of five. If you don’t like to eat fish, take fish oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids every day. Fatty fish (and especially sardines) also contain pyroglutamate, an amino acid that improves concentration.

Eggs, on the other hand, contain phospholipids, which also help improve memory and concentration. But don’t fry them, as this destroys valuable nutrients, and always choose eggs from naturally raised chickens.

Q: My daughter has exams. What can contribute to the activation of her brain activity?

Answer: There are many nutrients that can help boost brain activity and reduce the stress of exam preparation. Approximately 20% of the brain’s dry weight is made up of the same fatty acids found in fish oils. These acids optimize the health of brain cells and the way they communicate. Stress causes the production of hormones that affect how the body processes fat, so taking supplements can reduce this effect. A recent Japanese study found that students who received omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil were more relaxed during an exam than those who took a dummy pill. Another group of stress-fighting nutrients is the B vitamins, so your daughter can take a daily B complex or multivitamin supplement. If she is severely depressed, especially the night before an exam, give her 300 mg of magnesium, which relaxes both the brain and the muscles.
