We all strive for more brain power. Getting older means more care for our bodies, so our brain needs too. It is reported that the proper nutrition could play a critical role in fueling brain power and consequently prevent memory loss and decline. The following animated infographic illustrates facts and information about the brain power and the effects of certain foods on our brain.

One striking fact from the infographic is the statement that the brain shrinks about 5% per decade after the age of 40. Our brain requires nutrients just like our heart, muscles and skin. There are several foods that have the ability to accelerate or reduce brain shrinkage.

According to the animated infographic below, among the brain boosters are blueberries, omega 3 and whole grains. We can add tomatoes, broccoli, pumpkin seeds and sage to the beneficial brain foods. On the other hand, the list of popular brain busters includes MSG, sugar and trans fats. These will affect negatively your brain power so stay away from them.
