There are a lot of foods that can support the brain. But, some of these foods are better than others based on their nutrients.

• Problem-solving

The right nutrients are essential to boost cognitive function. But, even more than that, the fuel you run your brain on is the most important thing. The best fuel for the brain is ketones.
