Foods that make you smarter?? Really!? Yes, really, according to a recent article published in Wellness.com. We know that certain foods are good for overall health, so why not foods that are good for overall brain function?

These 4 foods are good for brain health

The idea is not that just by eating you will become an Albert Einstein. It is showing how foods affect not only the body but the brain function, too. Look at these 4 foods:

#1 Blueberries - blueberries as well as blackberries and raspberries all contain antioxidants that are good for overall health, but studies show that eating blueberries can actually improve your memory and cognitive skills by improving the neural pathways in your brain. They also prevent neural cell death and reduce inflammation in the brain.

#2 Fish - research shows that eating fish once a week can increase grey matter in the brain. Fish can also prevent deterioration of the brain due to aging. So, fish will help you stay smarter -- longer.

#3 Walnuts - the brain uses omega-3 fatty acids, and walnuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids are very important in order to keep your memory and cognitive functions strong.

#4 Leafy greens - leafy greens are full of vitamins and minerals, and especially folic acid, which helps prevent loss of cognitive skills. This means you will retain your memory as well as your vocabulary skills longer by eating plenty of leafy greens.
