Taurine, a substance famous for its antioxidant properties, is another important nutrient you should be getting in order to boost your brain.
“Taurine has long been known for increasing male virility. It helps absorb and dissolve fats, and helps to detoxify and build up the liver. For this reason, heavy drinkers should make a conscious effort to get more taurine,” says Dr. Shiratori.
Taurine, an amino acid containing sulfur, can improve brain function by helping to prevent anemia. It also strengthens the heart and lowers cholesterol levels. “High-grade protein is essential for keeping your brain active, and taurine is the substance that can help.
Your brain, heart and muscles all need large amounts of taurine, so when you find your concentration lacking and you seem in a daze, make taurine-rich foods a part of your meals,” recommends Dr. Shiratori.
Taurine is abundant in scallops, the darker red (bloody-colored) parts of tuna and mackerel, octopus, snow crab, asari clams and squid.
