EDITOR’S NOTE: You’ve heard the term “brain foods” since you were a kid, but how much do you really know about them? Should you eat salmon before a test, berries to prevent Alzheimer’s, drink less diet soda and more coffee to fend off depression, or take a vitamin supplement to increase your memory?  

“Brain Food” is a hot topic and new findings are furthering our understanding of which foods and drinks are good (and bad) for the brain.

The slide show excerpted below from WebMD explores how what we eat affects our neurologic and mental health.

Just like a good diet benefits your body and overal physical fitness, a good brain diet does the same for your thinking. 

When building and nurturing a better brain, what we choose to eat and drink makes a difference.
