Eat for Better Memory: 7 Ways to Get Sharp
Boost brainpower with blueberries. Studies have shown blueberries help prevent and reverse age-related memory loss.
Memory going? Go fish. Even canned tuna may sharpen your mental capacities. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, are important for maintaining memory.
Make time for a good breakfast. A Toronto study found breakfast helped men and women, ages 61 to 79, score better on memory tests. And when kids eat a morning meal, their exam scores improve.
Toast to a sharper mind with Merlot. Or any beer or wine for that matter. A study of 746 adults found that those who drank one to six alcoholic beverages a week were 54 percent less likely than abstainers to develop dementia over six years. That's no license to go crazy though… the same study determined 14 or more drinks weekly increased the risk of dementia by 22 percent.
Brew a cup of sage tea. Sage oil has been shown by some studies to boost acetylcholine levels in the brain, improving memory function. As a tea, it also aids digestion.
