A bad memory can be a serious handicap to anyone — particularly when it affects your daily life. Bad memory is also a characteristic of poor health, it can actually indicate that your brain is functioning slowly. There are many things that you can do to help improve your memory (like slim down your waistline), but one simple technique that you can do right away is to add healthy foods into your diet. Here is a list of some of the best foods that improve  memory and increase overall brain function:

A Few Options for Foods that Improve Memory

  • Fish (Omega-3 fatty acids) - Fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which not only helps the heart, but also aids on boosting memory power and fighting depression. Omega-3 fatty acids are components of the brain, so it can aid in enhancing brain cell function. Herring, salmon, tuna, mackerel, halibut, anchovies, and sardines contain the highest Omega-3 fatty acids. Just make sure you’re eating high-quality wild caught seafood, as many imported and farmed fish are actually threats to your health!
  • Berries (anthocyanin) - Berries are rich in anthocyanin, a phytochemical responsible for preventing memory loss — especially the kind that comes with age. Berries also contain quercetin, which helps in the proper function of the brain cells. Blueberries, raspberries, apples, as well as dark-colored grapes contain both, so including them in your daily diet can help improve your memory.
  • Greens - Vegetables, especially cruciferous ones, aid in boosting your memory power. These include cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, sprouts, lettuce, and many other leafy vegetables. They are not only packed with memory-boosting elements, but with loads of vitamins and minerals that can help to keep your entire body in optimal health.
  • Nuts - Nuts are packed with loads of vitamin E and B6 as well as folate, omega-3, and omega-6 fatty acids, which can help mental energy. There are a lot of varieties to choose from too.

By incorporating foods that improve memory into your daily diet, you are not only helping your memory, but also aiding in the improvement of your complete and total health.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Can anyone tell me the reason why perls of DHA are so incredibly expensive -or any natural food supplements for that matter?

  • Norma Morow

    It is impossible to find fish that is not farm raised.

    If these folks are going to tell us not to eat it, then tell us where we are supposed to find it!

    • Anna

      You're absolutely right.

        Wild Caught Fish from Alaska is the best/highest quality fish you can consume.

    Not just any old coconut oil, it must be the Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. chekout youtube videos. Once slated by doctors and co for being too fatty and not too good for health.

    Now gone 360 degrees, top docs and spcialists are swearing by it. Athletes and many people including myslef take it nearly everyday and it's absolutley amazing and i have not even put any fat on my waistline, infact im more ripped up!!

      Actually, regular coconut oil is very good for you as well. It has the advantage over Organic in that it will not go bad. You want to make sure you have regular coconut oil and not a hydrogenated version with a higher melting point. It should melt around 76F. It is also much cheaper. I doubt that they need to spray coconut trees with anything, so what difference is there in organic and non organic? The cold pressed contains trace organics that can go bad, but the regular kind while processed at a higher temperature, it is filtered better to remove the organics. On the other hand, the cold pressed has more flavor – from the left over organic material. At 5 to 10 times the price, the health differences if any are not that significant. Dr Mercola said basically the same thing.
