Improve Your Sluggish Memory By Eating More Of These Three Foods

Memory issues aren't just a problem for the elderly anymore—they also affect many people in their 30s and 40s. Regardless of your current age, though, it's never too soon to begin efforts to improve and maintain your memory.

Ongoing memory problems are a concern to mention to your doctor, but fluctuations of memory from good to poor can be caused by factors such as lack of sleep, physical activity, general lifestyle and environmental reasons. Beyond those variables, studies have confirmed that a person's diet also plays a huge part in brain health and function.

Foods that stimulate increased blood flow to the brain are especially beneficial for brain function, and we've selected the top three foods that are proven to help "jog your memory" and improve overall brain health.

Get A Little Nutty

Nuts have grown in popularity in recent years for the healthy fats and high amounts of protein that they contain, and walnuts fit the bill while also having a positive impact on your heart health. We suggest mixing them into a salad or some oatmeal for a tasty treat.

Have A Berry Sweet Snack

Berries have an abundant supply of anthocyanins and flavonoids that can stimulate improved brain function. Not only are they a healthy snack, there are also a wide variety of options including blueberries, blackberries, and cherries. We always recommend fresh fruits and vegetables, but frozen or dried ones will also have much of the same benefits.

Eat Those Greens

Grandma told us, mom told us, everyone's told us—we need to eat our veggies! You don't need to go full vegetarian if that's not your preference, but start introducing some more cabbage, broccoli, and dark leafy greens like spinach or kale into your diet. Mix them into a wrap for an easy lunch or make a stir-fry medley.
