Eat Smart for a Healthier Brain

Avocados are almost as good as blueberries in promoting brain health. True, the avocado is a fatty fruit, but, it’s a monounsaturated fat, which contributes to healthy blood flow. And healthy blood flow means a healthy brain. Avocados also lower blood pressure  and as hypertension is a risk factor for the decline in cognitive abilities, a lower blood pressure should promote brain health. Avocados are high in calories, however, so we suggest adding just 1/4 to 1/2 of an avocado to one daily meal as a side dish.
