Natural Ways to Improve your Memory

Natural ways to improve your memory

Do you sometimes forget where you put your glasses on and wasted an inordinate amount of time searching for them? Our brain cells must help us remember where we have been, where we have placed things and names related to the faces of people we meet.

Unfortunately, our brain cells can disappoint us by losing the ability to communicate well. There are certain strategies that we can use to ‘train’ our mind – such as paying more attention to what we always do or repeating information (eg a name) over and over again until we have stored it in memory.


Our food can be the cause of not being able to remember even the most everyday information. Memory enhancers in the form of dietary supplements can help fill in nutrients that we do not get in our diet and help to prevent memory loss.


These boosters are sometimes called \smart nutrients\ and can be found at your local health food store. Below are some of the smart nutrients that work best to restore your memory:


Choline and DMAE (Dimethylaminoethanol) – These nutrients are the building blocks of the brain. Fish, eggs, liver, soy, peanuts (and other types of nuts) are particularly high in choline. DMAE is also found in fish and helps your concentration.


Acetyl-L-Carnitine and Glutamine – When you combine these nutrients, you have an antioxidant that acts as an energy booster for the brain, plus an advocate who can balance the most important neurotransmitters necessary for improved memory performance.


Ginkgo (Ginkgo Biloba) – Also works as an antioxidant for the brain, improves blood circulation, increases energy, memory, and concentration.


Vitamins and minerals – There is a variety of vitamins and mineral supplements that you can take to enhance your memory skills. These include all B vitamins and minerals, which contain niacin, folic acid, and pyridoxine. Vitamin B12 is especially useful in building nerve cells that help us with mental alertness.


Most of us want better concentration and remembering skills. But most of us exercise a diet without the nutrients we need. Do your own research to find out which nutrients you may be missing and try supplements for a while to give your brain cells a flying start.
