Fruits provide edge with cognitive health benefits

As is generally known, correct nutrition plays a major role in the development, protection and maintenance of brain functions, as the human brain requires a constant supply of nutrients, vitamins and minerals to keep up the central nervous system.

The brain only makes up about 2% of the weight of a human adult. At the same time, the high metabolic demands of this organ can mean it will be burning up to 20% of all consumed calories.

Fruits and vegetables are powerhouses of nutrition, supplying concentrated and tasty sources of macro and micronutrients that can help reduce stress and slow age-related decline in brain function.

According to an article on naturalproductsinsider.com, fruits have always carried a healthy halo image and now might be an effective ingredient solution for formulating products targeting brain health. Bananas, pomegranates, pineapples, apricots, blueberries and strawberries all contain vitamin B, while vitamin C can be found naturally in guavas, strawberries, blackberries and citrus fruits. Fruits that are a good source of fiber include apples, raspberries, blackberries and pears.
