Memories, light the corners of my mind
Misty watercolor memories
Of the way we were…
Don’t know about you but my memory is not exactly lighting the corners of my mind. More like darkening the corners…I now have the memory of a sieve. Whenever someone says something to me it kinda sifts right through….What to do? What to do?
How do I make my brain remember what I ate last night, or what I walked into the room to get…you know that , now what did I come in here for? As I scratch head.
Well, It seems that we can help improve our memory with some good food and some good vitamins, this according to realage.com.
1. Take 900 milligrams of DHA omega-3s a day. “Why so much emphasis on these good fats? Your brain is 60% fat — and half of that is DHA, which keeps your brain cells flexible, fluid, and communicating well. DHA also fights memory loss. Your body can’t make DHA, so you have to get it from food and supplements. We get our DHA from algae-based capsules — not fish oil — to limit concerns about toxins in fish.”
2. Eat plenty of foods rich in DHA. “Opt for fresh or canned salmon, canned tuna, trout, sardines, walnuts, avocados, canola oil, and flaxseeds. Along with olive oil, these memory protectors are the only fats you should even think about eating.”
3. Eat oodles of fruits and vegetables. ”Their nutrients are vital brain food.”
4. Take 1,000 international units (IU) of vitamin D3 a day; 1,200 IU after age 60. “Vitamin D3 helps blood flow to your brain, among many other benefits.”
5. Season foods with turmeric. “Most yellow mustard has turmeric. A daily teaspoon helps clear cellular waste from your brain.”
The key, once again, is healthy eating, this helps give the brain the nutrition it needs…So good food is not just for the body, but also for the brain…This is a muscle we tend to ignore. Want a recipe against brain shrinkage, eat fruits, vegetables, and get that DHA…
Oh, don’t forget, that eating healthy to boost memory is a great thing, but do avoid unhealthy foods, such as saturated, and transfats, or added sugars, or syrup, see these guys steal your memory.
So the next time you go into a room to get something and stop dead in your tracks and wonder, why did I come in here for?
You might be surprised when your brain remembers…
