‘Super Nuclear Brainstorm Booster’ – packed with insanely delicious raw ingredients ! The blueberry has also been referred to as the ‘brain berry’ (great for the memory), the many health benefits of extra virgin coconut oil are legendary (again including memory), and flaxseed is known to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes (and once again memory – as healthy blood vessels aid optimal brain function). Then chia seeds are full of beneficial brain nutrients! They include healthy omega-3 ALA used by your brain to make DHA fatty acids (a necessity for good brain function). Chia seeds are also a complete protein full of the nine essential amino acids needed to keep your mood stable and your brain working at its best. They are full of antioxidants, which help fight free radicals and save your brain from all the damage free radicals can cause. Lastly, chia seeds release glucose slowly, which helps it get to your brain to be used as energy. So, a glass of this essential juice in the morning, and there’s no excuse if you lose your mobile or your keys . . . serve with a handful of walnuts, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate brain juice !
