7 Superfoods with Super Powers!

By Monica Ciociola
From the Million Dollar Body Club - Join Today and Workout to Win!

We've compiled a list of 7 super foods with the power to make you smarter and slimmer—at the same time! These foods are packed with fat-fighting fiber and brain-boosting antioxidants and nutrients . . . plus, they taste great, too!

  1. Potassium packed bananasBananas. Studies suggest that this potassium-packed fruit may assist learning by making you more alert, normalizing your heartbeat, and sending more oxygen to your brain. High in fiber, bananas are also a satisfying snack food.

  2. Salmon, sardines and herringSalmon, sardines, and herring. Fatty fish are full of neuroprotective omega-3 fatty acids that aid communication between nerve cells to improve learning, retention, and memory. Omega-3 fats also help expand blood vessels to improve circulation and blood flow.

  3. Grapes and blueberries. The antioxidant kings of the fruits and vegetable world. Antioxidants have been linked to improvement in short-term memory and motor skills, and even reversing age-related declines in balance and coordination.

  4. Hot cocoa and green tea. While you're warming your insides with hot cocoa and green tea, you'll also be getting a heavy dose of antioxidants to protect your brain cells and reduce stress. If you're in sunny California, like we are, green tea may be more palatable.

  5. Whole grains and brown rice. Switching to whole grain brown rice is a good way to slim down and wise up. Brown rice has a lower glycemic index number than white rice because of its fiber content, reducing its "sugar rush" effect. It's also loaded with vitamin B6 and magnesium, which have been linked to improvements in cognitive health.

  6. Almonds and walnuts. Rich in omega-3s, antioxidants, protein, and fiber, these nuts can help you slim down by making you feel satiated longer, as long as you don't overdo it, as they're also high in calories and fat.

  7. Corn on the cobCorn. Just one cup of corn will provide you with about 25% of your daily value of thiamin (vitamin B1), which is essential for brain cell production and cognitive functions. A lack of thiamin has been shown to lead to senility and Alzheimer's disease. Just remember to go easy on the artery-clogging condiments associated with corn.
