As we are still in the new year new me time of year, without doubt you will have seen a few colleagues proudly uploading pictures of their latest healthy meal to social media. One food in particular is quite popular, Avocado.
Why is this fruit (yes fruit) good for your health and performance at work?
Firstly, it tastes great and it is very adaptable so it can compliment many different foods. They are great for your physical health and serve a goldmine of nutrients that can affect your brains health too:
- packed with potassium (more so than bananas) which is effective at lowering blood pressure.
- loaded with healthy fats which can improve your cholesterol, allowing for effective blood flow around the body and brain
- half an avocado contains 61 micrograms of folate. Folate is essential for brain health and the maintenance of cognitive function, including memory.
- full of fibre, good for digestion, also helps prevent heart disease, diabetes, and weight gain
Why not order some green goodness to the workplace fruit bowl to boost mental ability?
