Raw foods for brain health

There is a great presentation on brain specific foods on The Best Day Ever website, I highly recommend it.

These are some notes I took from David Wolfe's brain lecture:

The first step is to go organic. Non-organic foods have residues of herbicides, pesticides, and other chemicals that are neurotoxins which damage the brain.

The number one fuel for the brain is oxygen. Get it through deep breathing, exercise, and chlorophyll rich foods.

There are certain foods that prevent oxygen from reaching the brain, such as cooked, partially hydrogenated oils, processed sugar, cooked starches (potato chips, french fries, cookies,...), etc.

High oxygen foods include green veggie juice, wheatgrass juice, algae (E3 Live, Cell Tech, blue manna) Spirulina, Chlorella), MSM, Pau D'arco tea, young coconut water, Vita-Mineral Green, Pure Synergy, Nature's First Food, etc.

For the green veggie juice, I recommend making it 25% celery, 25% cucumber, and 50% leafy greens (especially sunflower green sprouts).

Good brain minerals include magnesium, iridium, rhodium. Minerals in the M-state are the best. Rhodium and iridium are found in high concentrations in grapes, noni cactus, aloe vera.

Foods high in pigments are also the foods highest in anti-oxidants. These include berries, spirulina, E3 Live, Cell Tech AFA, cherries, grapes, raw cacao.

Some of the best foods for the brain and eyes are DHA rich foods. The only vegan sources of DHA are the Omega-Zen DHA Algae and the Klamath AFA algae. The herb purslane has the other long-chain fat EPA, start growing it in your garden.

The omega-3 fats are good for the brain. Some of the best sources are walnuts, hemp seeds, flax seeds, algae, coconut oil, berries, cat's claw and pau d'arco tea, etc.

Fasting on water or juices is the best way to improve the brain. If you have a big test or presentation, fast before the big event and you'll have a clear head.
