As we age, blood flow to the brain decreases and the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory, begins to deteriorate. The brain has a great capacity to build new brain cells, which is why it’s imperative to continue to learn and challenge ourselves mentally and physically at any age. In addition to staying mentally and physically active, it’s important to eat nutrient-dense foods that boost your brain power. And our Blackberry Thyme Smoothie delivers brain-boosting nutrients in a creamy, fruity superfood concoction you’ll love.
Blackberries are an excellent source of anthocyanins, which have been shown to improve memory function. Healthy fats such as coconut milk and hemp seeds feed your brain power. Coconut milk is rich in medium-chain triglycerides that can be used by the brain and body for energy. Hemp seeds are rich in brain-supporting omega-3, omega-6, and gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA helps reduce inflammation and prevent disease. Get them all with every gulp of this supercharged blackberry smoothie.
