Part of the reason why the human brain became so smart in the first place was that people acquired much greater access to nutrients than what was available in the past. The human brain needs a large number of nutrients to function at its best in the short-term and the consumption of certain foods can also help the human brain become even more powerful in the long-run.
Even better is how certain foods can reduce the degeneration of the human brain that many people mistakenly see as being inevitable. Neurodegenerative disorders can be slowed down or even reversed with the right nutrition.
Water is the most important requirement for keeping the brain healthy. A dehydrated brain is not able to transport minerals as efficiently and will slowly deteriorate as a result. Of course, most people are not severely dehydrated, but even a little dehydration can make the brain function worse.

A growing concern over the escalating number of individuals afflicted with diabetes, obesity, hypertension, heart disease and cancer has prompted the population to seek healthy choices for their meal plans. According to the Mayo Clinic and Livestrong nutrition experts, the following foods provide excellent sources of vitamins and nutrients to help to maximize the body’s ability to reduce risks of various medical conditions.
Packed with nutrients, nuts are good sources of protein. Specifically, almonds contain the highest levels of calcium. They are loaded with iron and vitamin E. Nuts are high in unsaturated fat, which helps the body to maintain healthier cholesterol levels. A quarter of a cup of almonds, or walnuts when you want to switch things up, helps to preserve heart health.

Red and black beans contain higher amounts of antioxidants and phytonutrient, which help to prevent heart disease, diabetes and some forms of cancer.
