How can diet strengthen your brain health?

While no single food is a magical elixir of brain health, a well-rounded, brain-healthy diet protects your whole body and reduces risk factors associated with cognitive decline.


Foods like leafy greens, berries, nuts and fatty fish support a healthy heart – and a healthy brain. Whole foods rich in nutrients, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants help strengthen blood vessels and functions throughout the body, forming the basis for a brain-healthy daily diet.


  • Maintain a food log to help track what you eat.
  • Enrich your daily diet by filling nutritional gaps.
  • Replace saturated fats with plant-based proteins and healthy fats.
  • Consult a nutritional specialist before implementing broad dietary changes.
