What if you could prevent numerous age related memory problems by eating certain foods every day. If you are like millions of other people, I’m sure you would rather eat those foods now than take medications when you are older. Well, thanks to ongoing research, more and more studies are confirming that certain foods can help mankind maintain memory health.

The first brain food is fish. With its omega 3 fatty acids fish is essential for brain function and development. Higher dietary omega 3 fatty acids are linked to lower dementia risk, lower stroke risk, slower mental decline and enhanced memory. It is recommended to eat at least two servings of fish per week. Nuts and seeds are also beneficial for your memory. They are great sources of antioxidant vitamin E which translates to less cognitive decline as you age. Dark chocolate is also beneficial when it comes down to our minds. Its antioxidants have the same effects on the memory as nuts; however, chocolate also temporarily enhances our focus and concentration.

Whole grains and avocados are also beneficial memory foods. These two foods reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and enhance blood flow. All of our organs benefit from a healthy blood flow, including our brain. A healthy blood flow can have an amazing impact on our brain cells. And last but certainly not least are blueberries. Blueberries are known for protecting the brain from oxidative stress which may reduce the effects of certain age related conditions, such as Alzheimer’s. All of these foods are not only beneficial for your memory, but they are also delicious. For that reason, it should be extremely easy to incorporate these yummy foods into your daily diet. So eat smart and your mind will thank you in years to come.
