Your brain is the most important organ in the body and it’s important to treat it that way. This includes what you put into your body – such as food and drink. Certain foods have negative effects on the brain, causing brain fog and cognitive difficulties. When you are going through menopause and drastic hormonal changes, the last thing you want to do is make your cognition “foggier.”
Limiting specific foods can help decrease the likelihood of brain fog. Certain diets are proven to help boost mental clarity and focus. One common denominator across these diets is that they eliminate a type of food or food group. Essentially, they reduce the amount of “allowed” processed foods. Some even prohibit sugar and flour.
How Nutrition and Brain Fog are Connected
A Low Carb, Keto Diet
A low-carb diet, such as the ketogenic diet, may help keep your brain more alert during the day. Experts claim this is because Western diets are carb-heavy and cause a glucose imbalance in your body.
Eating a sub for lunch and washing it down with a Coke will cause a spike in glucose, which causes your body to overcompensate in the amount of insulin it produces to process your blood sugar. After your glucose levels have rebalanced and dropped back down, it can cause sluggishness.
Processed foods contain ingredients that are foreign to the body, or not naturally produced, and can cause inflammation.
Diets such as intermittent fasting, ketogenic/high fat diets, the DASH diet (Dietary approaches to Stop Hypertension), and Mediterranean diet, while not proven for long-term success, provide better energy and improved cognitive function. Current “trend” diets such as Whole30, which eliminates processed foods and focuses on whole, healthy ingredients, help purge the body of impurities. The impurities in processed foods which alter chemical imbalances in the body also cause brain fog.
A Healthy, Balanced, Diet
The right proportions of carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats, and alkalizing fresh vegetables make a significant difference in your mood, brain function, and overall health. When a healthy balance for your body has been determined to make you feel your best, it’s time to fine-tune your hormones.
By using supplements and scientifically adapted pills to suppress the symptoms of menopause, you can be on the path to eliminating brain fog.
