SUPERFOOD // ORANGE:
Your body can’t naturally make vitamin C, but it’s an essential nutrient for eyesight and healthy brain cells. Eating sufficient amounts of vitamin C rich foods can protect against age-related mental decline and Alzheimer’s. Oranges are also rich in flavonoids, shown to improve memory and cognition. Folate and folic acid present in oranges also promote brain development and keep the brain in mint condition. Supplement your daily dose with my recipe for Salmon with Orange Miso Glaze.
