Clever Food Choices Could Make You Smarter

Clever Food Choices Could Make You Smarter

There is a wealth of research and findings relating to the impact that food has on your memory, mood, energy and mental powers. Feeding your brain with nutritious food is vital if we want to be thinking clearly, quickly and positively.

The NHS spends £77 billion every year on mental health – more than heart disease and cancer combined. Although we recognise much of this is necessary, many do not realise the significant difference making the right food choices can have. Unlocking potential, boosting focus and memory, and functioning at your optimal level each day can be attributed to simply feeding your brain the right fuel.
