Habits That Harm Your Brain

You Don’t Eat Right

Nutrients can directly affect your brain and have long-term effects on brain function. Carbohydrates are your body’s main energy source, so it’s important to eat enough — and the right types — of carbohydrates to fuel your brain. Just like your body, your brain needs energy to function.
