Foods To Boost Memory
Red peppers: Rich in Vitamin C, which acts as an anti-oxidant protecting brain cells from damage by free radicals. Vitamin C aids in recall, memory and attention. Other good sources are members of the citrus family.
Egg Yolk: Choline, richly available in egg yokes, boosts production of neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brain. It is responsible for the transfer of messages between cells and the memory function. The liver can make small amounts of choline but not enough to keep brain cells healthy. Good sources of choline – liver, peas, peanuts, soyabeans and wheat germ.
Oil-rich fish: Mackerel, salmon and tuna – high in decosahexonic acid (DHA), a fatty acid that is vital for the brain’s development. Evidence has linked low DHA to memory loss, depression, Alzheimer’s and Schizophrenia.
