JMMB September 2017


Blueberries These juicy little blue balls of goodness are packed with antioxidants, which keep cells functioning at peak performance. That includes cells in the brain and those believed to be associated with both short- and long- term memory. Eat blueberries as a snack, toss them in a smoothie, or add a handful to some salad, oatmeal, or cottage cheese. Flaxseed One of the easiest ways to boost your omega-3 fatty acid intake is to add a few tablespoons of ground flaxseed to foods you already eat (freshly ground is best). Omega-3s help reduce inflammation, which in turn reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke. Flaxseed is also high in fiber. These wonderful things come together to lower LDL cholesterol. Salmon This is one fishy friend that’s packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is one of the heart-healthiest sources of protein you can eat. Other varieties of fish are exceptionally heart-healthy as well, namely sardines and anchovies, but those can be an acquired taste for some folks (though they are great in salads).

What we eat influences not only our overall health, but how we age. Diets high in fat and sugar tend

to age us quicker — and they can be detrimental to our brain, especially when it comes to memory and cognition. Want to maintain a youthful spark and

keep your mind sharp as you age? It’s all a matter of incorporating the following foods into your diet (while cutting down on the junk).

Avocados These green machines are high in healthy,

monounsaturated fat. It helps maintain a more ideal blood pressure and can help reduce the risk of high blood pressure as you age. Because avocados are high in fat, you still want to watch how much you eat. Like any of the foods on this list, consuming too much of a good thing can negate the positive health benefits.

Karl says he learns something new every day. The financial industry is always in motion, with new investment opportunities and strategies entering the fold all the time. There is never a dull moment. And the same can be said for JMMB’s clients. In 2016 alone, JMMB raised in excess of $100 million for our clients. This means that as a business, if your goal is to raise capital (debt or equity), restructure the balance sheet of your company, or sell your business, JMMB can help — and so can Karl! But it’s not all business for Karl. Out of the office, he loves to travel to new places and learn about different cultures. Closer to home, one of his greatest passions is giving back to the community. He’s also the president of his high school alumni association!
