Brain health couldn't be more important. Luckily, there are ways that you can use foods to your advantage to ensure that your brain stays healthy and vibrant. Proper nutrition in the form of a good diet is one way to help ensure that your brain will stay in tip-top shape. Of course, it goes without saying that it is also important to avoid harmful choices like junk food.

Some foods are better at maintaining and ensuring brain health than others, but it can often be difficult to find the time to eat these foods. Fruits and vegetables are your main line of defense in the battle against brain aging. However with a busy lifestyle, it may be difficult or nearly impossible to find the time to eat all the fruits and vegetables that you should.

Additionally, there is the very real problem and issue of the limited shelf life of fruits and vegetables. How many times have you bought fruits and vegetables with every intention of eating them only to see them go bad? Fortunately, there are ways around this problem and often they come in the form of supplements.

When you think about the amazing convenience supplements offer as well as the fact that they are often packed with nutrition, it really only makes sense to integrate them into your diet.  At the same time you can still take full advantage of the nutritional wonders of these foods.  Now you certainly can't get that from an energy bar, energy drink or a cup of coffee!

Spirulina and chlorella are two superfoods that everyone should know about. These two foods are easily digested forms of protein that are simply packed with chlorophyll, making them great and reliable detoxifiers as well as muscle, energy boosters and brain builders. Keeping your mind healthy is intimately attached to keeping your entire system clean. Everyday exposure to chemicals in the air, water and food make consuming superfoods a very smart move.
