It goes without saying that the brain is the most important organ in your body. While you can get by with donor organs or medical interventions for almost every other part of your body, there's no replacing your brain. Keeping it in good health is common sense, and these 3 superfoods can help.

Turmeric

Everyone is talking about this yellow spice. Over 300 studies have been done on it to discover some of its many benefits, and some of those benefits include those for your brain. Turmeric helps with memory and may help fight depression, but what it is best known for is it's unique ability to help new brain cells grow. This could help fight age related diseases.
