PECANS AS A BRAIN SUPERFOOD

Pecans are one of the most popular edible nuts native to North America and Mexico. The pecan tree is a large deciduous tree belonging to the hickory family. They are also available in several forms such as whole pecans, pecan halves, pieces, granules and meals.

Reasons to love pecans:

  1. Pecans contain copper, an essential mineral important to brain function. It activates enzymes responsible for metabolizing neurotransmitters and regulating their levels in your brain tissue.
  2. Zinc is present in pecans. It activates antioxidant enzymes that protect you from free radicals, which would otherwise damage your brain cells.
  3. Zinc also plays a role in brain cell function, helping to support learning and memory, according to a study published in “Neuron” in 2011.
  4. Pecans are rich source of Manganese. Manganese activates enzymes needed to regulate the levels of glutamate, a potential neurotoxin, in your brain.
  5. Too much glutamate over-excites and damages your brain cells. Manganese helps ensure that your glutamate levels don’t get too high.
  6. Eating just a handful of pecans a day can keep your brain functioning at a high level and reduce the risk of degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and stroke.Pecans
