By now, if you are familiar with endermologie®, you know how important diet is to see visual results when starting an endermologie regimen, like reducing the appearance of cellulite on your body, but what about the results that go unseen? For example, better mental clarity. Let’s explore.
The food you eat has a lot to do with how your brain functions. While we’ve always known that what we eat affects our bodies and how we look, scientists are also learning more and more that what we eat takes a toll on our brains.
Our bodies don’t like stress. When we’re stressed out — whether it’s physical, like a car cutting you off in traffic, or mental, like you must reach an important deadline at work — our bodies release inflammatory cytokines.
These chemicals prompt the immune system to kick in and fight back against the stress through inflammation, as though stress is an infection. While inflammation helps protect us against illnesses and repairs the body when you do something like cut yourself, chronic inflammation is a different animal. It’s been linked to autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis, anxiety, high blood pressure and more.
But what does this all have to do with food and endermologie? Our gut helps keep our body’s immune responses and inflammation under control. Additionally, gut hormones that enter the brain or are produced in the brain influence cognitive ability, like understanding and processing new information, staying focused on the task at hand and recognizing when we’re full.
When it comes to lymphatic drainage in particular, endermologie provides specific benefits to treated areas by stimulating that drainage. It also relaxes muscles in the body, which can often result in improved mental clarity.
Foods rich in antioxidants, good fats, vitamins and minerals provide energy and aid in protecting against brain diseases. So when we focus on giving our bodies whole, nutritious foods benefiting both the gut and the brain, we’re actually benefiting our minds and bodies while keeping them both in tip-top shape. Below are a few examples of healthy brain food that is also extremely beneficial for your body too!
- For clear thinking and optimal brain function,load up on blueberries and wild salmon. They’re packed with nutrients that improve focus and memory. Also, make yourself a peanut butter sandwich! Studies show that peanut butter boosts overall brain health.
- To improve your problem-solving skills,stock up on olive oil, and goji berries. You can buy frozen goji berries at Whole Foods, or bags of dried ones to eat as a snack.
