Grow new neurons with good food choices. In her TED talk (see Video post “You can grow new neurons”), neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret explains recent research that shows how we can help our brains better perform neurogenesis—improving mood, increasing memory formation and preventing the decline associated with aging along the way.

The strongest neuron growth generators are Flavonoids, Blueberries, and Dark Chocolate.

What foods slow neuron growth?

Sugar and a “soft” diet. Choose foods that require vigorous chewing. Japanese brain research has shown that a “soft” diet decreases neuron growth.
