Product Description

Everyone from students to busy moms needs optimal memory functioning to keep successful track of information, schedules, and more. Absent-mindedness and short-term memory difficulties can be improved through a memory-enhancing diet including foods rich in vitamin C, vitamin E, iron, flavonoids, thiamin, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin B12.

Vitamins C and E are powerful antioxidants that can improve cellular functioning in the brain and help reduce oxidative damage to brain cells. Vitamin C plays a key role in maintaining healthy nerve cells in the brain and in helping to prevent memory loss and low levels of vitamin E are linked to poor performance on memory tests. Food sources of vitamin C include strawberries, oranges, tangerines, red bell peppers, kiwi, and potatoes. Vitamin E can be found in broccoli, almonds, avocados, mangoes, sunflower seeds, and peanuts.

Researchers believe that iron helps to build brain neurotransmitter activity, and studies have shown iron deficiency to be linked with problems with short-term memory. Iron-rich foods include apricots, amaranth, beans, beef, chick-peas, clams, crab, lamb, oysters, prunes, pumpkin seeds, quinoa, shrimp, tofu, and turkey.

Flavonoids may slow age-related loss in mental capacity and may even reverse some age-related memory impairment by preventing free radical damage and improving blood flow. Leading food sources of flavonoids include blueberries, broccoli, carrots, onions, white grapefruit, tomatoes, lemons, oranges, apples, pomegranates, limes, chocolate, and soybeans.

Thiamin, found in pork, sunflower seeds, nuts, and fortified cereals and grains, is essential for healthy brain cells.

Daily intake of folate and vitamins B6 and B12 appear to lower blood levels of homocysteine. High levels of this protein can damage blood vessels and cells of the brain causing age-related cognitive decline. Help ward off this type of damage by eating folate-rich foods such as orange juice, strawberries, asparagus, and dark leafy greens; vitamin B6 sources such as fish, poultry, meat, bananas, and avocados; and vitamin B12 sources including egg yolks, liver, beef, poultry, fish, shellfish, dairy products, and fortified cereals.

Finally, doing puzzles, changing your routine, and challenging your mind daily can keep your brain young and memory intact. We've included a metal brain boggler for a fun way to interject a little brain gymnastics.
