8. Walnuts

Walnuts are a good source of a heart-healthy food, but with the fatty acids they contain – omega-3 and omega-6 – they can definitely be declared a brain-healthy food as well. As if the fatty acids aren’t enough, walnuts also include vitamin B6 and vitamin E which also work on maintaining the health of your brain.

 

9. Beets

If beets are something you avoid, you will add them to your next shopping list when you see all the health benefits they offer.
