Who could have thought that just a single meal rich in saturated fats would affect your concentration and reaction time so quickly! According to a recent small study, eating just one meal with a lot of saturated fat can decrease directly your concentration and reaction time.

Why is this happening, you might ask…

Previous studies have shown that foods high in saturated fat can enter your brain and cause inflammation. This is because fatty acids can cross the blood-brain barrier and therefore directly affect the functioning of your brain.

Saturated fat is common in animal products, such as meat and whole milk products. Some vegetable products such as sunflower oil also contain a lot of saturated fat. But, also our favorites such as cakes, pastries and snacks, regularly have a plenty of saturated fat.
