How does nutrition impact your brain?

How does nutrition impact your brain?

Sophie Medlin, consultant dietitian and Head of Nutritional Research at Heights set up the assessment:

“Your brain controls every process in your body. We can’t expect to enjoy good physical and mental health without taking care of our brain health. Nutrition affects every aspect of brain function including the transfer of information between cells, the neurotransmitters we produce, and the physical structure of our brain.”

What impacts my score?

What impacts my score?

Among other things, your brain health is determined by a wide range of lifestyle factors as well as what foods you eat.

Some of the essential nutrients our brains need to thrive are:

  1. Replacement fats: particularly two specific types of omega 3 fatty acids called DHA and EPA.
  2. B complex vitamins: which are essential for the nervous system as B vitamins help prevent fatigue induced by a stressful life.
  3. Antioxidants: In the form of blueberry polyphenols and vitamins E, C, and A impact learning, concentration, and memory across all ages.

Find out if you are getting these nutrients when following a plant-based diet, and everything else your brain needs to thrive.

How we get your Brain Nutrition Score?

How we get your Brain Nutrition Score?

Your nutrition can be influenced by a huge number of factors we’re not measuring, such as your genetics, stress, gut microbiome, sleep, and much more. 

Whilst we can't control for the above we can look at how your diet is impacting your brain, as well as the behaviours in your control, which have been shown to influence brain health. 

The Brain Nutrition Assessment was designed by our Head of Nutritional Research, Sophie Medlin, to provide a quick indicator of whether or not you are feeding your brain. 

Boost your score, and the odds are that you’re boosting your brain and how you feel.
