Mussels

A great source of vitamin B12, mussels can help insulate the neurons within your brain, keeping your mind sharp!

Swiss chard can help facilitate the biochemical reaction in your brain that boosts energy because of the significant levels of magnesium stored in its leaves.

Lycopene, found abundantly in cherry tomatoes, is a key nutrient that helps protect the brain and can stop the buildup of pro-inflammatory molecules linked to depression.
