Nutrition has long been known to have an effect on the brain. Omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids found in fruits, green vegetables, and nuts have all been linked to a healthier brain in studies.
When we can't get the necessary 8 hours of sleep or keep up with our never-ending to-do list, it can feel like there's never enough coffee to get by. Recent studies have shown that simply changing your diet to include more healthful foods will help your body get through these hard times.
Plant-based diets are high in antioxidants, polyphenols, phytochemicals, and unsaturated fatty acids, all of which can aid brain cell growth and development.
Researchers at Boston University School of Medicine discovered that consuming more plant-based meals like berries and green leafy vegetables while reducing saturated fat and animal products can help to prevent heart failure and reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia.
The MIND diet, which emphasizes the consumption of berries and green leafy vegetables while avoiding saturated fat and animal products, was found to boost the left ventricular function of the heart, which is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood throughout the body.
Though more research is needed to determine how much a plant-based diet can boost overall mood and brain function, deeper investigations growing to support this concept. It's obvious that including more plants in your daily routine could help you get through your hectic schedule. Being a student is hard, especially for those who work and study at the same time.
We want to be able to support our future by delivering nutrition dense plant-based meals to keep you going late at night or early in the morning to finish that assignment due at 9 a.m. MANNA is providing a subsidy to students in order to make our meals more accessible and help them nourish their minds and bodies.
Are you a student or know someone who could benefit from this subsidy? Reach out to us for more information and allow us to support you.
