Fruits, Veggies, and Supplements for Juicing for Memory/Brain Health

As we age, brain health generally declines. This can lead to memory issues, a decline in brain function and focus, and potentially Alzheimer’s disease. However, there are some fruits, vegetables, and supplements that you can add to your juicing to help preserve brain health for as long as possible. When you provide your brain and body with the nutrients it needs to perform and repair itself properly, you will drastically reduce the problems associated with a decline in brain health. Make sure you are adding the following fruits, veggies, and supplements to your juices so you can maintain your memory and brain health.

Blueberries are an excellent source of antioxidants, which help to fight off free radicals that can harm cells throughout the body, including in the brain. The juice of these berries also contains flavonoids, which are known for their benefits for improving memory, learning, and communication.

Apple Juice
Apple juice is a brain boosting powerhouse, and a recent 10-year study has even shown that it can reduce the chances of Alzheimer’s by as much as 75%. Additionally, Alzheimer’s patients who received fresh apple juice 2 times each day for 30 days showed an improvement in memory, and the occurrence of negative moods. Experts recommend adding fresh, organic apple juice at least three times per week to get the most brain-boosting benefits.

We all know that spinach is just plain healthy when added to your normal juicing, but it has brain health benefits as well. Spinach juice contains large amounts of folic acid, which helps prevent the memory loss associated with aging. In some Alzheimer’s patients, it has even been shown to reverse current memory loss, and prevent it from recurring. Try to add 2/3 cup of fresh, organic spinach juice to your daily juicing recipe to make sure you are getting the recommended daily allowance of folic acid for best results.

Onions also provide memory and brain health properties. While adding yellow and white onion juices are beneficial, red onions contain the most fisetin, which is a flavonoid that helps to boost long-term memory. If you just can’t stomach the onion juice, you can also benefit from oranges, apples, tomatoes, peaches, persimmons, and kiwi.

Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is a must-add if you want to protect your brain and memory through juicing. This oil contains MCTs, which are a type of healthy fat that is easier for the body to digest. As the body digests the MCTs, it causes the production of ketones, which have been found to not only protect your brain against Alzheimer’s, but to reverse it as well. While there are manmade versions of MCTs, the natural ones from coconut oil are less expensive and have a longer half-life in the body.

Whether you want to start protecting your memory and brain health, or you are already dealing with losses in memory or function, adding these fruits, vegetables, and supplements to your daily juicing can have major benefits.
