A neuroscientist explains the 5 most effective methods to keep your brain healthy


Neuroscientist and leadership coach Dr. Tara Swart spoke with Business Insider about some of the most effective methods to keep your brain healthy.

She picked her five key areas: sleep, nutrition, hydration, oxygen, and meditation.

When talking about nutrition, Dr. Swart said: “My top five brain-friendly foods are salmon, avocado, eggs, nuts and seeds, and coconut oil.

“Although your brain only weighs 2-3 kilos, so it’s a tiny percentage of your body weight, it sucks up 20-30% of the breakdown products of a healthy diet.”

Watch and follow these rules to make sure your brain is in the best shape it can be.
