Pumpkin seeds for Memory and Brain Power
Pumpkin seeds are just as good as blueberries for boosting brain power especially when you’re craving something on the savoury side.
In-house nutritionist at leading health and fitness app, Lifesum, Lovisa Nilsson says, “A handful of pumpkin seeds each day provides you with the recommended daily levels of zinc (4-7mg a day) is vital for increasing brain power by enhancing memory and focus.”
In fact research at Duke University Medical Centre and Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that zinc played a ‘critical’ role in regulating communication between the brain helping improve memory and cognition significantly.
