Brain Food: Nutrients to Preserve Brain

The following diet allows for the foods that will give a boost to preservation of the brain in various ways according to Paula Wolfert.

"Thus, the so-called bulletproof coffee (with grass fed butter mixed in), she makes every morning and the squares of dark chocolate she eats after lunch, in the belief they will bolster her brainpower. In between, she eats a carbohydrate-free diet built on salmon, berries and greens, along with extracts of turmeric, cinnamon and eggplant."

Nasunin is a potent phytonutrient and antioxidant that is found in skin of eggplants. It may help fight aging and cancer...  nasunin has been found to protect the lipids (fats) in brain cell membranes. 

........we plant the Asian varieties which  have more skin per capital as they are thin.  Grown organically, do not peel.  Best sautéed with Asian spices.
...Coffee with butter  - stems from people in the Himalayas, Ethiopia, Nepal, Vietnam, and Singapore, while yak-butter tea drinks are consumed in Tibet.

I believe similar benefits hold for  coffee mixed with coconut oil.

dark chocolate
lavanols extracted from cocoa help tackle cholesterol levels and blood flow; But effective dose would be 400g of dark chocolate,
chocolates that I like!
