Feed your... nerves

With­out a healthy ner­vous sys­tem, you couldn’t stand, talk or reach down and touch your toes. A study re­view pub­lished in the jour­nal Amer­i­can Academy of Phys­i­cal Medicine and Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion found that some foods can strengthen and re­store nerve func­tion much in the way ex­er­cise does by stim­u­lat­ing the nerves to com­mu­ni­cate bet­ter. The strong­est ev­i­dence points to omega-3 fatty acids such as are found in salmon, tuna, wal­nuts and fishoil sup­ple­ments for their neu­ro­pro­tec­tive po­ten­tial. Other ben­e­fi­cial foods in­clude turmeric, green tea, berries, grapes and red wine.
