In his book, Dr. Dow focuses on activities and foods that can possibly keep your brain at its best. Some of those foods include:

Nutritional yeast: Dr. Dow says this is loaded with vitamin B12, which he says can help boost energy. He suggests adding it to olive oil popcorn and says it has a "nutty, cheddar" taste.
Pistachios: He says these are filled with vitamin B6, which he says can help to reduce stress by producing gaba and serotonin in the body.
