Foods that boost your memory! April 1, 2011


The superfoods to save your memory. 

 And other important memory enhancing ideas!

 note: All foods listed here are healthier for you uncooked because when you cook them, the vitamins and nutrients cook away. Best to eat these foods raw. Enjoy!

Omega-3’s.
They are fatty acids, which are actually healthy for the body to comsume. You can get this from fish, like salmon, tuna, halibut, mackarel, sardines, and herring. Fish will also lower your risk for alzheimers diesease. They have fish oil pills which snell or taste nothing like fish. Don’t like fish? Other sources of omega-3’s are flazseed, flaxseed oil, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, and soybeans.

Dark leafy greens.

Veggies like Broccoli, spinach, romaine lettuce, arugula, asparagus contain antioxidents that improve memory drastically. Making them into a salad is realtively easy.

Blueberries.

Blueberries are the leading fruit to improve your memory. These small berries pack a powerful punch of antioxident power that stimulates the brian cells and repairs the damaged ones.

Pomegrante.

This fruit is dark red in color and is great used in a juicer. It is a powerful fruit that is often taken for granted. One cup of promegrante juice daily will decrease alzheimers, dementia, improve cell function and keep the brain healthy.

Orange fruits.

Fruits such as mangos, apricots, cantoloupe, and watermelon (I know it’s red) can also improve the areas of the brain relating to memory. They are superfoods that are rich in antioxidants and are vital to keep the cells working healthy and multiplying.

Red Wine.

Used in moderation ( NO more then 1 glass a day for women and 2 for men a day). Red wine is made from red grapes which have the vitamin reservatrol. This vitamin is the best known blood flow increaser. More blood flow to your brain means more brain power and longer thinking capabilities. Other reservatrol options are grape juice, cranberry juice, fresh grapes, berries and peanuts.

 

Other vital ways to improve memory.

Excercise the brain.

Regular excercise helps the oxygen flow to the brain and helps slow disorders that increase memory loss like diabetes, and cardiovascular (heart) dieseases. This enhances the brains chemicals and protects those precious brain cells.

Sleeping.

Going to sleep at a good time every night for a reasonable amount of hours is what the brain needs to recharge. Sleep deprivation is difficult to function under, and it can cause a whole load of health problems.

Interact with others.

Its important to have good relationships with the people in your life. Activites like going to the movies or dinner with friends or family, can help your brain feel at ease and excercise healthy. Pick up a hobby that you love, and practice it regularly for optimum brain power. Even pets can be a good way to improve your memory, having responsibilites that you enjoy, and interacting with the outside world.

Laughter.

This one is vital for your brain to stay happy. Your body feels better after laughing, and surprisingly enough, many adults go the whole day with out smiling or laughing once. It can enhance the serotonin in your brain to help improve the brain cells power. Anyone who is happier will live longer. Learn to laugh at yourself, and small stressful situations, laugh and talk to your children often, after all its a start.

Stress has to stay low.

I know it’s hard, when your always working. Stress can get the best of you. Stress accounts for many dieseases and health problems. Everytime you feel the stress start to rise, Slow down take a deep breath, and think of the most positive part of the situation. Practice mediation and do something that relaxes you like music, or a bath.

I really hope these ideas become a part of your everyday life!! Any comments, critic or ideas of your own are greatly appreciated!  Thank you,  Greenlif3.
