BUT FIRST, COFFEE
Now, I bet you thought I would ask you to quit coffee, didn’t you? On the contrary, coffee can be very beneficial for your health and brain. Coffee contains polyphenols (antioxidants) and can help preserve brainpower, enhance brain and physical performance, decrease the risk of type 2 diabetes, and enhance your mood. So, if coffee does not make you overly jittery, don’t feel guilty about having one (skip the sugar) to kickstart your day. If you are after further brain enhancement, add two cups of green tea (for theanine) to keep you calm but laser-focused. Bonus: green tea contains EGCG to improve your dental health, so flash those pearly whites.
