Egg Yolks for Your Brain

964Egg yolks are a fantastic source of nutrients that promote brain health, such as fatty acids and B vitamins. A cousin of the B vitamins, known as choline, is also found in egg yolks. Choline creates acetylcholine, a brain chemical that is vital to our memory and learning abilities.*

You can also take choline supplements; the recommended dosage for men is 550 mcg and for women it’s 425 mcg. If you’re not a fan of egg yolks, keep in mind that bananas contain high amounts of choline, too.
