Your brain requires 25% of the body’s energy to function properly. That’s a lot of calories. And with your brain running on overdrive, you need to be sure to feed it properly. Stress and anxiety are caused by the feeling of being unable to solve problems.
Several foods supply lactate precursors to the brain. Here are a few:
- Coconut oil: Coconut oil contains medium chain acid triglycerides (MCT). Try adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to your morning coffee, or substituting it in your cooking.
- Vinegar: Try a hot drink mixed with honey or in food such as Sauerkraut. The acetic acid is an excellent lactate precursor for the brain.
- Peanut butter: Peanut butter contains caprylic acid triglyceride in low concentration which is the best lactate precursor known.
- Nuts: Nuts contain caprylic acid triglyceride. This snack food provides lactate precursors, keeping your brain running on high.
