Brain Boosters: Curtis and Trachelle were given a wide selection of fruits, vegetables, nut and seeds, juices, and extracts to choose from to make Dr. Oz's brain boosting smoothie's. He asked them to choose the what they thought were the most important items to boost your brain. Trachelle won because she picked the Rhodiola extract, and Curtis didn't.

¼ cup blueberries: Blueberries contain pigments called anthocyanins that give the fruit its dark color and also boost brain function. Blueberries also help protect the brain from stress and may reduce dementia.

A handful of hemp nuts: These nuts are rich in Omega-3’s which are essential for the health of your brain and nervous system. Additionally, the compounds found in Hemp Seeds have been shown to promote memory, learning and immune function.

Dr. Oz's Warning Signs Of Snot

Dr. Oz talks about how your snot can tell you if your healthy or not, and gives us hints on how our body is doing. In the video Dr. Oz talks about how snot works and what it's supposed to do for you. The snot is moved along on a little conveyor belt of tiny little hairs called cilia. The cilia move the snot to the back of your throat where you swallow it, which is what we are supposed to do if everything is running smooth.

If you have a problem with your snot, it will not drain properly back down your throat but drip out of your nose.

White snot means it is healthy snot

Yellow/Green snot means bacteria or a viral infection

Pink/Red snot means bleeding and damaged tissue -- dry air prevents are nose from being lubricated and the membranes crack in the nostrils.

Dr. Oz says we you have a lot of snot, congestion problems, there are solutions. Some foods make it worse, peppers make more snot, and perfumes. Dr. Oz suggested using a neti pot, and ginger teas. There is also antitoxidant inhalers available by prescription.
