What can I do to improve my memory?

Posted March 20, 2012

Question: What can I do to improve my memory? I have the memory of a goldfish right now.

Answer: You can increase your intake of good fats by taking fish oil supplements daily (be sure to select a reputable, high quality brand). Fish oils are useful for treating depression, memory loss and anxiety. Another remedy that is simple to apply is good nutrition. A diet high in green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds and other sources of B and C vitamins and folic acid is an effective way to improve cognitive health. You should also manage your homocysteine levels, which has been linked to Alzheimer’s as well as heart disease and osteoporosis. To keep these levels at bay, select a vitamin combination containing folic acid, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and trimethylglycine. And finally, engage in brain boosting activities such as a crossword daily.
