    Fish...the brain really likes to incorporate Omega-3's especially and other unsaturated fattyacids. It's also important to have the proper ratio of 3's to 6's and 9's. Phosphotyylserine also a good one that the brain prefers to use for its membranes. B vitamins are paramount importance, as are all the antioxidant nutrients. That's just for starters. Once you get that down then you can move on to more sophisticated techniques.

    Taurine (a gama amino acid) is the main functional ingedient in Red Bull the popular energy drink. I buy it at the health food store as it's much cheaper(five dollars for a month supply). 1000 to 2000 mgs/ day seeems to work well for me. Much better than caffiene.
    The best source for phosphotidylserine you ask....southern fried chitlins, that is if you don't like eating brains. Chitlins are deep fried intestines which as you know has a rich supply of nervous tissue, so much in fact, that it is said that the intestinal nervous system has more synapses than the average brain! and can function just fine indepentantly from the rest of the CNS.

    Fish is extremely good. The cold water fish are very well known for their omega oils -3 and -6. Salmon is probably of the best brain food fish you can get. Also, blueberries are an extremely good brain food. It is full of antioxidants and vitamin C and other goodies. Why blueberries? Well you need the antioxidants to keep cells healthy and also to prevent the breakdown of cells in the brain, especially those neurons and oligodendrocytes. Also, you need to keep the blood vessels healthy in the brain so avoid the trans fat foods. The trans saturated fatty acids help clog your arteries and convert cell membranes into gels, ugh!!!!
    Start reading the biochemistry and nutrition aspects. Also, start reading some neurosciences!!
    Cheers, A_G
